Former Vice President Joe Biden attacked President Trump for his comments on Rob Porter Friday, claiming the remarks were like saying an “axe murderer” is a “great painter.”


“I just read, before I walked on stage a statement from the president saying he wishes [Porter] luck, he has so much talent,” the former vice president said.

“That’s like saying that axe murderer out there, he’s a great painter.” (RELATED: Biden: Trump Has ‘Dumbed Down’ The Presidency. Here’s A List Of Biden’s Past Statements)

He continues, “No think–translate this into everyday terms. Is there any other crime where there’d be an explanation, that the reason why we shouldn’t pay attention to the transgression is because they’re good at something?”

This isn’t the first time Joe Biden attacked Trump this week. Biden went after Trump in an interview with MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell Thursday for his comments about “groping women.” (RELATED: Biden Attacks Trump For Comments About ‘Groping Women’)
