Joe Biden insults voters while campaigning
Joe Biden seems to have taken a unique approach to the 2020 campaign trail... yelling and insulting voters.
Falling in the polls
Joe Biden, who has fallen in the polls, recently insulted one of his supporters in New Hampshire during his campaign stop there. Madison Moore, who is a 21-year-old college student, asked the former Vice President of the United States, “How do you explain the performance in Iowa, and why should the voters believe that you can win the national election?” Biden takes the microphone and responds, “It’s a good question. Number one — Iowa is a Democratic caucus. You ever been to a caucus? No you haven’t.” He continues insulting the student by calling her a “lying dog-faced pony soldier.”
A hot topic of discussion
Unfortunately, this is not the first insult Biden has expressed to his supporters. On Stephen Colbert’s “The Late Show”, he discussed the seemingly ongoing insults from the former Vice President. Colbert even shared a graphic of Biden’s forehead with the words “Insult Generator” written across it. “The Daily Show” took it even further by creating a “Joe Biden Insult Bot” on Twitter. With this bot, users can get their own personalized, obscure insult from Biden which range from anything such as “Stuff it in your jim-jam, you little two timin’ Mrs. Cool Whip” to Easy on the mustard, ya scone-eating grass gobbler.”
Trying to put the fire out
Biden’s campaign has been working hard to address all of the stories discussing his recent behavior. For example, they were quick to point out that “a lying, dog-faced pony soldier” was simply a joke he has used before that comes from a John Wayne movie. Even though this may be true, it is confusing why he would not just answer the question directly. He is the most experienced candidate in the Democratic field, but he needs to fix this insult issue to stand a chance at the national election.
