Via CBS Boston. The war of words between Donald Trump and Joe Biden has escalated to the point of fisticuffs! Joe Biden took the first shot in a speech Tuesday night. He made this comment about the President disrespecting women, “If we were in high school, I’d take him behind the gym and beat the hell out of him.”
Donald Trump responded with this tweet:
Now, The Lowell Spinners have stepped in with a venue for these battling septuagenarians. They've offered to host a boxing match between the men on Friday, August 17, at LeLacheur Park. World champion Micky Ward, whose life the movie “The Fighter” was based on, has offered his services as referee.
Spinners owner Dave Heller says, “It’s a shame this feud has escalated the way it has, and the American people deserve better. Instead of a war of words, let’s give the two of them a chance to settle their differences the old fashioned way, in the ring, with the great Micky Ward officiating. Boxing fans like me remember the ‘Thrilla in Manila’ and the ‘Rumble in the Jungle,’ but everybody, Republican and Democrat alike, would remember the ‘Slasher at LeLacheur!’” The team also added, “One important note: if the fighters show up, the boxing match will take place regardless of the weather, no matter how stormy it may get." Get me two seats ringside!! (Photo by Kevin Dietsch-Pool/Getty Images)
