While President Obama hasn't yet responded to the revelation of the 2005 Donald Trump tape, Vice President Biden just did. And it's a devastating rebuke of both Trump and the callous misogyny behind his words.

Biden has long been an advocate for sexual assault victims, introducing legislation to mandate better responses to domestic violence as far back as 1990 and even writing a letter to the Stanford University sexual assault survivor. It's clear from this tweet that he's not writing Trump's words off as mere "locker room talk" but as a tacit admission of sexual violence.
