See what Joe and the students are saying.

While Brock Turner's friends and family had penned letters vouching for his character, Vice President Joe Biden is now writing his own letter supporting the survivor the Stanford University swimmer sexually assaulted.

On Thursday, the politician shared a powerful open letter addressed to the anonymous victim with Buzzfeed News, commending the young woman's bravery.

The 73-year-old explained that her emotional statement about her assault is "forever seared" on his soul, writing:

"I am in awe of your courage for speaking out — for so clearly naming the wrongs that were done to you and so passionately asserting your equal claim to human dignity.

And I am filled with furious anger — both that this happened to you and that our culture is still so broken that you were ever put in the position of defending your own worth.

It must have been wrenching — to relive what he did to you all over again. But you did it anyway, in the hope that your strength might prevent this crime from happening to someone else. Your bravery is breathtaking.

You are a warrior — with a solid steel spine."

We completely agree. Speaking up and sharing her shocking story was incredibly inspiring and brave.

But President Barack Obama's second-in-command also explained that "a lot of people failed [her]" on the night she was attacked, adding:

Joe Biden doesn't just think he would be better than Donald Trump — let's be honest, that isn't much of a claim — but he also thinks he'd be better than Hillary Clinton!

The Vice President sat down with Robin Roberts on Good Morning America Wednesday, where he revealed why it was so hard for him to keep his hat out of the ring. He said:

"I planned on running. It's an awful thing to say. I think I would have been the best president."

Wow. We don't know about awful, but it's pretty darn arrogant! Then again, so is running for POTUS…

Sadly, it was the tragic death of Joe's son Beau Biden that derailed his plans. He explained:

"No one should ever seek the presidency unless they're able to devote their whole heart and soul and passion into just doing that."

Find out the great cause toward which the VP is directing his passion instead in the full interview (below)!

Vice President Joe Biden Will Join Lady GaGa On The Oscars Stage For Her Performance Of Til It Happens To You!

| Filed under: PolitikLady GaGaOscarsJoe Biden

Now these are some strange bedfellows…

On Thursday, the Oscars announced Lady GaGa will have a very special introduction to her performance of Best Original Song nominee Til It Happens To You — Vice President Joe Biden!

For those who don't know, Joe is a big supporter of decreasing rapes on college campuses across America, so it makes sense he would intro the track, which is all about sexual violence awareness.

The VP also started the "It's On Us" campaign which encourages students to intervene if they know a sexual assault is taking place AND drafted the Violence Against Women Act.

As for the big show on Sunday, we wonder how J.B.'s slightly eccentric and humorous personality will mesh with the musician's serious tone, especially since the topic is also very sensitive. We guess only time will tell…

So, do YOU think the academy chose the right presenter for this performance?
