Democratic nominee Joe Biden offered an emotional rebuke of President Trump on Friday following an anonymously-sourced report in The Atlantic accusing the president of disparaging dead military veterans as "losers" and "suckers."

"If what is written in The Atlantic is true, it's disgusting," Biden said. "It affirms what most of us believe to be true, that Donald Trump is not fit to be the.commander in chief."

The Atlantic story dominated political discussions on Friday as Republicans expressed skepticism of the anonymous sources behind the story and Democrats expressed outrage over remarks that mirror the president's past disparagement of military veterans, including the late Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.).

Speaking from Wilmington, Del., Biden angrily lashed out at the president, invoking his own deceased son, Beau Biden, a Bronze Star recipient for his service in Iraq.

"When my son volunteered and joined the U.S. military…and went to Iraq for a year, won the Bronze star and other accommodations, he wasn't a sucker," Biden added. "The service men and women he served with, particularly those that did not come home were not losers. If these statements are true, the president should humbly apologize to every gold star mother and father and every blue star family that he's denigrated and insulted. Who the heck does he think he is?"
