Donald Trump vs Joe Biden: Trump wants a bout, but trolls have a problem!
We are nearly a year from the date the United States decided it doesn't want Donald Trump as its president again and yet the former POTUS can't stop slamming his successor. In his latest bizarre attack on Joe Biden, Trump indicated he wanted to take on the incumbent in a boxing match and believed he would clearly have the upper hand. Social media though was quick to dismiss Trump's claims and slam him for even suggesting it in the first place.
Since leaving the White House, Trump has continued to attack the current administration at every possible opportunity. Days ago, he was trolled as "fake" after a photo of his emerged, appearing to show significant weight loss. He also recently received an invitation to the funeral of Lance Cpl Kareem M Nikoui, who was killed by an ISIS-K bomb blast in Kabul. But at the moment, the former president is making waves after it was announced he would commentate for a fight.
On September 8, it was announced Trump would serve as a commentator for the Evander Holyfield vs Vitor Belfort fight in Florida. Trump will reportedly provide "unfiltered boxing commentary" for the fight, scheduled for September 11. On September 9, Trump phoned in during the press conference for the fight and offered a not-so-surprising answer when asked who he would like to spar with.
Will Trump beat Joe Biden?
During the conference, Josh Peter of USA Today asked Trump who he would like to fight "if he ever gets into the ring." The answer was unsurprisingly Joe Biden. "Probably my easiest fight would be Joe Biden," he said as the crowd reportedly erupted with laughter. "Because I think he’d go down very very quickly. Very very quickly," he added. Trump then called back to Biden's 2016 comments on the matter, saying, "You know he once said, "oh I’d like to take him behind the barn". He’d be in big trouble if he ever did," Trump added. "Now, I think Biden would go down within the first few seconds and he won’t get up."
For those of you that may not remember, during the 2016 Presidential campaign, then-Vice President Biden was asked if he would ever like to debate Trump. Biden responded, "No, I wish we were in high school and I could take him behind the gym. That’s what I wish." Trump's comments immediately inspired bookies to examine the matter and it seems like Trump is currently the favorite. MyBookie recently released odds on a hypothetical fight between Trump and Biden, with Biden the underdog at +1200.
Social media though had a vastly different opinion. As news of Trump's challenge made its way to Twitter, users were quick to react and slam Trump for even thinking about challenging Biden.
'Not sure the boxing shorts would fit'
"Safe to say they're not in the same weight class...," one user joked. A user slammed, "Trump says he wants to box Biden. As we know, Trump is mortally obese and barely can hold a glass of water with one hand. Biden will be running in circles around this fat bag of shit." One person tweeted, "Would pay-per-view in a second! Also, Biden is tall and lanky. He would demolish trump in a fairly refereed boxing match. But I would take trump over Biden in a full out brawl just because trump has so much weight on Biden. Throwing that kind of girth around is quite a weapon."

"I'm a 68-year-old lady with arthritis and I could take Trump in a boxing match," one person claimed. Another mocked, "I’m not sure the boxing shorts would fit over Trump’s diaper." One user commented, "Trump talking about boxing Biden. This man funny as shit."

Well, we may never get to see the two men duke it out in the ring, but their verbal attacks against each other have certainly proved to be equally entertaining. With three more years left in Biden's term, you can expect plenty more such quips to come from Trump. Whether he will be able to withstand the rigors of another presidential campaign, remains to be seen. On that front though, he appears to be slightly better than Biden, who has been repeatedly trolled for his gaffes and falls.
