son Hunter during Iowa town hall

Democratic presidential hopeful Joe Biden got into a tense exchange at an Iowa town hall and challenged a man to a push-up contest after the man asked the former vice president about his son Hunter’s job at a Ukrainian gas company. “You’re a damn liar, man, that’s not true,” Biden told the man at the New Hampton, Iowa, town hall on Thursday. The routine campaign stop turned heated when the man began talking about how President Trump was accused of using military aid to get Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to begin an investigation into Biden and his son, who was on

Comments:

The author misses a key point: Biden, who comes off as unhinged, bordering on violent, also mocks the audience member for being sedentary and overweight, which by the leftist rulebook is a high crime called "fat shaming." Imagine the MSM reaction if a Republican candidate engaged in such an exchange; he'd grovel for forgiveness before being banished entirely.

So, Idiot Joe gets a question about his corrupt son and his crooked dealings in Ukraine, calls the citizen a "damned liar" and then challenges him to a pushup contest....... Dementia and corruption is a nasty brew.

Joe got his kid off the hook when he was snorting coke in the US Navy....he killed an ivestigation into corruption when his kid was collecting $$$ for a do-nothing job on the board of Burisma. What chance does a mere hoi-polloi citizen stand? Of course, if the MSM were actually doing their jobs and pressuring Joe about the truth.....

What jumps out at me isnt the bizarre reaction, the belligerent behavior or the nonsensical words. Its that all of these things are directed toward a likely D voter. Seriously, I have been to Iowa countless times. I like it there. It can get boring, especially in rural areas It never gets boring enough for a Republican to go to a Joe Biden event. He more or less told a potential vote to go f themself. Isnt this why Clinton lost?

And these are just the Iowa Democrats who watch MSNBC asking him these hard questions. Wait till he has to face Republican voters who have memorized the evidence of his corruption while watching Hannity on Fox News and working out on their Peloton. He doesn't have a chance.

Joeasaurus Vex claims he "knows a lot," "I've been around a long time." Both boasts are true. He knows corruption inside and out as a direct participant, and he knows a lot that isn't so. He has been around a long time - he's worthless for any other line of "work." I, like others, cannot wait until he has to face real questions that are much more difficult than this.

It is going to get worse, Joe. This was about you, not so much about Hunter. You abused your office. If it was approved by Obama, then both the former president and vice president will end up on trial in the Senate. Sooner or later your corruption was going to catch up with you. That time is being rushed by the Democrats, and President Trump will be ready...

Put 'em up, PUT 'EM UP! Sinecure employment--little to no work for very high pay--for the politically connected has been going on for a long time, and might even be legal in most instances. That doesn't make it right. If a morally lax pol throws his ne'er do well son a $3 million Ukrainian bone then decides to run for president for the third time, voters should know what he has done. If Joe wants a fight, he should ... put 'em up. He'll fight you with one paw tied behind his back. He eats Corn Pop, not Wheaties, for breakfast.

I had the misfortune of going to an eastern city a few weeks ago, and saw the behavior Biden displays once again. These city tough guys, when confronted, attack with obnoxious accents and loud volume. They dance around and make threats, all while backing off beyond arms reach. They are still yelling at each other from opposite sides of the block long after everyone has lost interest. They look like birds yelping and expanding their feathers but accomplishing nothing. Out here in flyover country, your opponent may not say a word before solving the problem. Enjoy the view of the ceiling.

The most worrisome thing about Quid Pro Joe is if by some monumental miscarriage of justice he makes it he wouldn't be POTUS for long. Then his VEEP would take over. Who would it be? Stacy Abrams munching on chocolate eclairs? Heap Big Squaw Spreading Bull? Crazy Bernie the Avowed Socialist? Farticus? Ever one of the demoncraps is bat guano crazy. If they make it the two biggest crises the country will face is the Ink and Cave Crises. Trying to finding enough ink to print all the money they want to spend.

The United States Military Academy has ditched an acronym used by the Army Black Knights over the phrase’s ties to white supremacist gangs, officials said. The acronym GFBD—“God forgives, brothers don’t”—was removed from merchandise and a team flag after West Point officials and athletic department administrators were alerted to the issue in September, ESPN reports. Head football coach Jeff Monken was “mortified” when he was told of the phrase’s origin and addressed the team after learning of the connection, telling players it would immediately be removed from the program. “It’s embarrassing, quite frankly,” Lt.

Former EU Council chief Donald Tusk fired a shot at Donald Trump today by tweeting a photo of himself pretending to point a gun into the back of the US president. The ex-European Council chief waded into the diplomatic row which blew up at this week's Nato summit after Justin Trudeau and Emmanuel Macron were caught mocking Trump behind his back. After the President stormed from the gathering of heads of government in London last night, Tusk appeared to heap yet further ridicule on the humiliated US leader by sharing a picture of himself purportedly mimicking to press a handgun into Trump's back.

Sen. Kamala Harris would have been an excellent president. But it was never going to happen. The elephant in the room was just too big. She is a woman and she is black. And in the aftermath of Donald Trump, she never had a chance at gaining the kind of broad support needed to keep her campaign financially viable. That’s why she abruptly withdrew from the race on Tuesday. America isn’t progressive enough to elect a black woman as head of state, any more than it was when Shirley Chisholm ran in 1972. It’s questionable whether our country can elect a woman, period.

A little something to cleanse the palate. She said this in an interview today with Howard Stern, which makes it slightly less weird since chatter about lesbians is like 40 percent of the content on that show. Or at least it was when I was a regular listener a million years ago. (In fairness to Stern, she’s the one who brings it up.) He went easy on her by not asking the obvious follow-up: What were you doing at Epstein’s ranch, then? She should consider this a missed opportunity, as a surprise admission of bisexuality would have helped add a little more “diversity” to an upcoming Democratic debate.
