WATCH: Trump Says He’s a ‘Young, Vibrant Man,’ Unsure About Biden
President Donald J. Trump spoke with a gaggle of reporters before leaving the White House for a National Rifle Association conference in Indiana, and was asked how old he thought was too old to be President.
“Well, I think that I just feel like a young man,” Trump said. “I’m so young! I can’t believe it! I’m the youngest person. I am a young, vibrant man! I look at Joe [Biden] – I don’t know about him. I don’t know.”
Trump smirked as he walked away from the crowd of reporters.
Former vice president Joe Biden officially entered the 2020 presidential race Thursday, and Trump welcomed him in kind.
“Welcome to the race Sleepy Joe. I only hope you have the intelligence, long in doubt, to wage a successful primary campaign. It will be nasty – you will be dealing with people who truly have some very sick & demented ideas. But if you make it, I will see you at the Starting Gate!” he said on Twitter.
“Sleepy Joe” is a reference to Biden’s infamous snooze at the funeral of late Sen. John McCain.
Biden’s campaign is already steeped in scandal. Big League Politics reported:
Former vice president and possible Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden stands accused of physical misconduct against a female Latina Democrat politician.
The accusation against Biden marks one of the first major direct accusations against Biden during this campaign cycle, but insiders believe many more are coming. Big League Politics learned about the impending accusation Wednesday night and monitored the situation as Lucy Flores came forward with her bold first-person essay in New York magazine. BLP has not spoken to Flores directly but now we have her own words describing the disturbing encounter at a campaign event with Eva Longoria, via New York mag’s “The Cut”:
“In 2014, I was the 35-year-old Democratic nominee for lieutenant governor in Nevada…As I was taking deep breaths and preparing myself to make my case to the crowd, I felt two hands on my shoulders. I froze. “Why is the vice-president of the United States touching me?”
I felt him get closer to me from behind. He leaned further in and inhaled my hair. I was mortified. I thought to myself, “I didn’t wash my hair today and the vice-president of the United States is smelling it. And also, what in the actual fuck? Why is the vice-president of the United States smelling my hair?” He proceeded to plant a big slow kiss on the back of my head. My brain couldn’t process what was happening. I was embarrassed. I was shocked. I was confused. There is a Spanish saying, “tragame tierra,” it means, “earth, swallow me whole.” I couldn’t move and I couldn’t say anything. I wanted nothing more than to get Biden away from me. My name was called and I was never happier to get on stage in front of an audience.
By then, as a young Latina in politics, I had gotten used to feeling like an outsider in rooms dominated by white men. But I had never experienced anything so blatantly inappropriate and unnerving before. Biden was the second-most powerful man in the country and, arguably, one of the most powerful men in the world. He was there to promote me as the right person for the lieutenant governor job. Instead, he made me feel uneasy, gross, and confused. The vice-president of the United States of America had just touched me in an intimate way reserved for close friends, family, or romantic partners — and I felt powerless to do anything about it.”
