Joe Biden is taking heat for his tense exchange with an Iowan voter.
The man questioned him about his son’s Ukraine job and said “We all know Trump has been messing around in Ukraine. You on the other hand sent your son over there to get a job and work for a gas company and [who] had no experience in natural gas. You’re selling access to the president just like he is.”
“You’re a damn liar, man.” Biden snapped “That’s not true. And no one has ever said that.”
As the two talked over each other, a staffer tried to take the man’s microphone. But Biden waved him away and let the man keep the mic.
Biden later attacked the man as “fat” and said “Let’s do push-ups together here, man. Let’s run. Let’s do whatever you want to do. Let’s take an IQ test.”
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.
Social media is not impressed with Biden’s behavior.
MUST WATCH: @JoeBiden goes BERSERK on a retired farmer who asked questions about Hunter Biden's shady dealings with a Ukrainian gas company.
He also calls the farmer "fat" and challenges him to a push-up contest!

This voter acknowledges Trump's misdeeds wrt Ukraine before asking Biden about Burisma/his son. Biden calls him a "damn liar" and "fat." If this is how he responds to q's from someone who thinks Trump's guilty, how is he going to make it through a general election? Some Malarky! https://t.co/qxr4IlwQim
