ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) The White House weighs in on Vice President Joe Biden's comment about wanting to take Trump "behind the gym." While campaigning for Democrat Hillary Clinton recently, Biden said he would have taken the Republican presidential nominee "behind the gym" if he were back in high school. "Comments that you've seen from Vice President Biden are indicative of some deeply held values and principles that were called into question based on the offensive remarks of the Republican nominee for president," White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest told reporters. Trump drew widespread condemnations from voters and a number of Republican elected officials after a 2005 video emerged in which he was heard talking on an open microphone about groping women and trying to seduce a married woman.
