MELT DOWN: Joe Biden Calls Iowa Voter a ‘Damn Liar’ and Makes Fun of His Weight for Asking about Ukraine Scandal
Former Vice President Joe Biden became unhinged during a recent Q&A session while campaigning in Iowa after he was challenged about his son’s Ukrainian business record.
“We all know Trump has been messing around in Ukraine over there holding their foreign aid,” a questioner said to Biden at the event.
“But you on the other hand sent your son over there to get a job and work for a gas company that he had no experience at,” he explained.
Biden became immediately defensive because of the concerned citizen’s questioning, denying that he committed any wrongdoing with regards to his son Hunter’s business deals.
“You’re a damn liar, man. That’s not true, and no one has ever said that,” Biden responded.
The questioner replied that he was merely talking to Biden about things that he had seen on the TV, but Biden was not satisfied with that answer. He responded by championing his superior intellect before insulting the questioner’s weight problem and challenging him to a push-up contest.
“Look, the reason I’m running is because I’ve been around a long time, and I know more than most people know, and I can get things done, and that’s why I’m running, and if you want to check my shape on, let’s do push-ups together here, man,” Biden said.
Biden continued rambling on about his son Hunter and his illicit business dealings in the Ukraine. Hunter was put on the board of Burisma Holdings, a Ukrainian gas firm, despite his history of drug abuse and lack of experience in the energy sector while Biden served as Vice President.
“No one has said my son has done anything wrong… You said I set up my son to work in an oil company. Isn’t that what you said? Get your words straight, Jack!” Biden exclaimed.
“It looks like you don’t have any more backbone than Trump does,” the questioner said to Biden, with an audible gasp coming from the audience following his remark.
“Any other questions?” Biden said to end the confrontation.

Although Biden denies any wrongdoing, he once admitted that he used his power as Vice President to influence the Ukrainian government in a way that helped his son. He leaned on the Ukrainians to get a prosecutor fired who was investigating Burisma Holdings, threatening to withhold aid money unless they complied.
Joe Biden brags about how he threatened to pull $1 billion in loan guarantees from Ukraine if it didn’t immediately fire Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin.

Despite his unparalleled baggage, Biden remains the preferred candidate for the Democratic Party. He leads in all of the polls despite very real questions about his mental fitness and exhibiting a troubling pattern of behavior of the campaign trail.
If this is the best the Democratic Party can muster up, it’s no wonder why they are so desperate to impeach President Trump before next year’s election.
