Former Vice President and current Democrat presidential hopeful Joe Biden faced heckling during a Fourth of July parade in Iowa.
While shaking hands at the parade, Biden was met with chants of “Sleepy Joe,” a phrase popularized by President Trump, himself.
“Where’s your walker?” one heckler reportedly asked Biden, who asked another heckler if he’d like to jog.

Despite Biden being seen as the likely recipient of the Democratic Party’s nomination to oppose President Trump in the upcoming election, his popularity on social media continues to wane, as comments indicated.
Although Biden appears to be desperately trying to bolster his campaign in time for 2020, his struggle to appeal to US voters is increasingly obvious.
We laugh at Sleepy Joe. He won’t even finish in 10th place in the dnc primary show.
