Iowan in Tense Exchange with Joe Biden Calls for Him to Drop Out of the Race

The Iowa voter who had a viral tense exchange with Joe Biden is calling for him to drop out of the race.

WashingtonExaminer reports the voter who was verbally attacked by Joe Biden urged the former vice president to drop out of the race and called him too old while speaking to reporters after the campaign event.

Biden, 77, accosted the man who was in attendance for a Thursday afternoon campaign event in Iowa after the 86-year-old asked about his role in his son Hunter Biden’s work with Burisma, a Ukrainian gas company. The former Delaware senator called the man “a damn liar,” which prompted the man to argue that he heard that Biden had personal intentions when advocating for the firing of a Ukrainian prosecutor.

“You see it on the TV? I know you do. By the way, that’s why I’m not sedentary … The reason I’m running is that I’ve been around a long time, and I know more than most people know, and I can get things done. That’s why I’m running,” Biden countered. “And if you wanna check out my shape on, let’s do push-ups together, man. Let’s run; let’s do whatever you want to do.”

Biden also challenged the man, who is a self-proclaimed Sen. Elizabeth Warren supporter who also likes Sen. Bernie Sanders, to a push-up contest and appeared to make a negative comment about his weight. The man added that he’s not worried about Warren nor Sanders’ age, despite them being over 70 years old.

After the event, the man, who refused to give his name, told reporters after the confrontation that “[Biden] is so old, he’s senile anyhow” and encouraged Biden to drop out of the race. “It was all softball stuff, he don’t want to answer the hard stuff,” the voter added. “He’s been in the Congress all of his life, and all of these problems like high drug prices and all of that — where in the hell has he been for the last 50 years?”

UPDATE – The Biden Campaign claims he didn’t call the man “fat” and meant to say “Look, facts.” The audio clearly sounds more like “fat” but it is also possible Biden misspoke and intended to say “facts.” Judge for yourself.
