There is plenty of name-calling to be expected throughout the 2020 election, and there has been more than enough of it already – even before President Trump gets directly involved – but what came out of a Democratic candidate’s mouth today was the most bizarre bit of word-vomit we’ve ever seen on the campaign trail.
“Lying, dog-faced pony soldier”.
That’s right. You read that correctly. One of the 2020 Democratic candidates for President called a voter at a campaign stop a lying, dog-faced pony soldier.
And, if you guessed that it was creepy Uncle Joe who said it, get yourself a cookie.
On Sunday, Joe Biden snapped at a voter in New Hampshire, calling her a “lying, dog-faced pony soldier.”
The dust-up came after the voter asked Biden, “How do you explain the performance in Iowa and why should the voters believe that you can win a national election?”
“You ever been to a caucus?” Biden replied.
After the voter said she indeed had attended a caucus, Biden shot back: “No you haven’t. You’re a lying dog-faced pony soldier.”
“You gotta be honest,” he continued. “I’m gonna be honest with you. It was a little bit confusing in Iowa. But let’s assume it was all exactly right.”
The former Vice President’s age has been a common concern among undecided voters, with Biden himself admitting recently that he would have to be extra careful in picking a running mate, as they would be somewhat likely to suddenly find themselves being sworn in.
