Joe Biden’s streak of tense and rude reactions to legitimate questions from voters and reporters out on the campaign trail continued unabated today in New Hampshire.
The interaction began when Biden handed the microphone to a young female voter named, Madison, who warned Biden she was going to be a little mean before asking, “How do you explain the performance in Iowa and why should the voters believe you can win the national election?”
It was a fair question and one for which Biden should have had a well prepared response. Many voters are probably wondering the exact same thing and it was a good opportunity to address the issue.
However, Biden's demeanor changed after taking the microphone back from her. “Iowa's a Democratic caucus. You ever been to a Democratic caucus?,” he responded
It was when the woman said ‘yes’ that Biden responded rudely.
"No, you haven't. You're a lying dog-faced pony soldier." His response did evoke some tepid, almost nervous, laughter from the crowd, but he quickly continued along with his answer and everyone was left likely wondering, “did that really just happen?”
Watch the odd encounter below. One can only imagine the media reaction to President Trump calling a young female voter a "dog-faced pony soldier." Whatever that is.
After a New Hampshire voter asks @JoeBiden why they should trust he can turn his campaign around, he asks if she’s ever been to a caucus before; when she says yes, Biden snaps: "No you haven’t. You’re a lying dog-faced pony soldier." pic.twitter.com/3uxOAu0Ues— Tom Elliott (@tomselliott) February 9, 2020
