Democratic presidential candidate and former vice president Joe Biden had a heated confrontation with an Iowa voter, because of questions the man had about Biden’s son, Hunter’s, dealings with Ukrainian gas company, Burisma.
The 83-year-old man began by comparing Biden’s age, 77, to his own and claiming that Biden is “too old for the job.”
The especially tense moment came when the man began talking about Hunter Biden, and how the elder Biden “sent [his] son over there to get a job and work for a gas company that he had no experience with gas or nothing in order to get access for the president.”
“So you’re selling access to the president just like he was,” the man said, intimating that Biden was guilty of doing the same thing that President Donald Trump is currently being accused of.
“You’re a damn liar, man,” Biden said with some extra vigor. “That’s not true, and no one has ever said that.”
The man who began by telling Biden that he’s “not a Republican,” eventually caught the wrath of Biden following the previous exchange concerning Hunter Biden.
Biden told the man the following:
And by the way, I’m not sedentary. I get up and…No, let him go. Let him go. Look, the reason I’m winning is because I been around a long time and I know more than most people now. And I can get things done. That’s why I’m running. And you wanna check my shape on, let’s do push-ups together. Let’s run. Let’s do whatever you wanna do. Let’s take an IQ test, okay? Number one. Number two, no one has said my son has done anything wrong, and I did not on any occasion. And no one has ever said it.
Biden and the man kept going back and forth for almost another minute, and it got pretty childish. They both said how they didn't want to argue. At one point Biden, whether it was a gaffe or not, called the man "fat."
