The 2016 election is the election to end all elections, a fiery, no holds barred death match where manners and political decorum have been tossed out the window in favor of mocking barbs and vicious insults. However, it seems that Vice President Joe Biden, the man long known as “big-hearted Joe,” is tired of slinging barbs and insults. He’s ready to flex his muscles, put on the boxing gloves and go toe-to-toe with Republican nominee Donald Trump.

During a recent campaign stop in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, Vice President Joe Biden took Donald Trump to task over his lewd comments about groping women. In a 2005 “Access Hollywood” interview with Billy Bush, Trump bragged about grabbing women by the genitals without their consent, an eye-opening comment that many people feel is the definition of sexual assault. Biden told the crowd that if he and Trump were in high school, he’d take the Donald “behind the gym.”
Joe Biden is famous for his brash, assertive, tell-it-like-it-is comments, but it’s not every day the Vice President of the United States challenges a billionaire real estate developer and Republican presidential nominee to a “Rumble in the Jungle.”
It’s easy to see the schoolyard brawl playing out like “Rocky IV,” with Joe Biden in the good guy role of Rocky Balboa, fighting for the rights of women and the honor of his country, and Donald Trump a stand in for the evil Russian, Ivan Drago. No word yet on President Vladimir Putin’s role in this WWE matchup, but chances are he’ll have a ringside seat.
