CBS Cheers Biden Punching Down at Iowa Voter Like a 'Prizefighter'

A retired farmer and Iowa independent confronted former Vice President Joe Biden while on his so-called “no malarkey” campaign tour of the state Thursday, calling him out for his age and son’s dubious business dealings in Ukraine. The former Vice President was obviously triggered when he unloaded on the Iowan, who was older than he was, by raising his voice and appearing to call the man “fat.” Almost unbelievably, CBS Evening News lauded Biden by suggesting he was acting like a “prizefighter.”

During the opening tease at the top of the program, anchor Norah O’Donnell built hype by suggesting the voter was using “fighting words”:

NORAH O’DONNELL: Fighting words: Joe Biden faces off with a voter.

JOE BIDEN: You're a damn liar, man. [Transition] Get your words straight, Jack.

O’DONNELL: What that man said that made the former Vice President so mad.

O’Donnell’s enthusiasm persisted when the full report rolled around as she described how “Democratic frontrunner Joe Biden went at it with a voter who accused him of sending his son Hunter to work for a Ukrainian energy company for the family's benefit.”

Well, the Vice President even challenged the man to a pushup contest,” she said with a big smile on her face (pictured above). “Ed O’Keefe tonight with the blow-by-blow.”
