(CBS NEWS) - Kellyanne Conway, Donald Trump’s campaign manager, chastised Joe Biden early Wednesday, calling the vice president a “bully” for his remarks suggesting he’d like to physically fight the GOP nominee.
“I thought he acted like a bully,” Conway said in a “CBS This Morning” interview, adding that it “was very disappointing to hear the vice president of the United States suggest violence the old-fashioned way.”
“I think if Donald Trump said anything even remotely close to that we would’ve had our hair on fire for three days,” Conway added. “We would’ve had high school psychologists coming in and talking on air, we would have been talking about bullying and violence.
Last week, Biden reacted to Trump’s widely publicized 2005 “Access Hollywood” tape, where the GOP nominee could be heard making crude remarks about women and boasting about his aggressive and unwanted sexual advances.
“The press always ask me don’t I wish I were debating him?” Biden said. “No, I wish we were in high school. I could take him behind the gym — that’s what I wish.”
Trump himself, however, seemed to take up Biden’s challenge during a rally in Tallahassee, Florida Tuesday evening, saying he’d relish the opportunity to fight the vice president.
