Biden Calls Elderly Iowan a “Damned Liar”

Biden’s outbursts are becoming stranger. These are not the calculated outbursts of a politician. They are the unpredictable outbursts of an old man in decline.

Gorman, who previously served in the United States Marine Corp and is also a retired farmer, accused Biden of selling access to the Presidency by sending son Hunter to Ukraine to work for a gas company Burisma Holdings.

The comment caused Biden to blow up in rage, labeling the elderly Gorman as ‘a damn liar’.

Biden told NPR he had been ‘joking’ with Gorman about doing push-ups and taking an IQ test. He said: ‘I was joking with him because he…came along. What was he saying? He said he’s entitled to do this.

‘He said, “You’re too old.” He said, “You’re too old. I can’t vote for somebody as old as you.” I said OK. And he was challenging me what kind of shape, and so I kidded. I said, “Want to do a push-up contest?” I was joking. Look, I’m in pretty good shape.’


Biden said he does not ‘belittle’ or ‘make fun of people’ like Trump, adding: ‘The fact of the matter is this guy stood up, and he was in fact lying. And I just pointed out, “You’re a liar.” It’s a fact: He lied. Period.

    Gorman doesn’t have to prove himself, as he is a Marine. Biden must feel guilty about getting draft deferments to get out of the Vietnam War.

    That would be so weird if we had an old President who was unhinged and prone to outbursts and insulting people the moment they offended him in some slight way.

  3. Mar

    It would be weird, jjf, if say a person like Trump, would go after a nobody Marine/farmer instead of some politician or celebrity. That would be weird, inseed.

    Biden doesn’t like what he said so he yells at him, insults him and physically challenges the guy. Typical bully behavior.

    Hey, boys, back off.  Biden is the FRONT-RUNNER.  Best in class.  Top of the heap.  You wanna take him on in push-ups?  A 1-mile run?  How about in the ring?

    No?  Then shut up.

    Biden just cn’t answer the tough questions about his digusting liberal corruption whilw in office!

    This was not even a Trump supporter!

    He will be hilarious on debate stage with Trump.

    Trump will have to employ a “mercy rule” halfway into the debate beating.

    Dad’s got a point. Biden IS the best they’ve got for 2020.

    You are correct, the voters would never elect an elderly president that would publicly mock someone based on appearance, age, ethnicity, income level, gender, or where they live.  Nor would that elderly president mock a Gold Star parent, a handicapped person, a former POW, the entire US intelligence community, our allies, other foreign leaders, or all of our generals.

    Except we have one right now.

    Just an amazing display of hypocrisy and double standards.

    Mar, do you sincerely think Trump hasn’t done that?  How hard did you look?

    Did you consider that the tough-guy silliness might attract some voters?

    Viet Nam veteran John Kerry is publicly distancing himself from Joe Biden. Former SoS Kerry claims to know nothing about Joe’s Ukraine mess. Or his UAE mess. Or his China mess. Lurch must be feeling a cold breeze across his backside.

    the tough-guy silliness might attract some voters?

    Joe Bribem certainly thinks so.

  12. jjf

    When you use tough-guy words, who are you trying to impress?

  13. Mar

    Well, jjf, Trump succeeded with his tough guy image because it is unique and flies with conservatives.
    A liberal talking tough is not going to endure himself to others because, well, most are snowflakes.

  14. jjf

    Mar, I think what you’re saying is that silly tough-guy talk appeals to conservative voters.

    Whether it appeals to the snowflakes is another matter.

    Was it “snowflakes” crying about the “holiday tree” in Madison?

  15. Mar

    I think we like Trump was he fought for conservatives, unlike most conservative politicians who just want to get along.
    Don’t know much about the holiday tree in Madison other than Evers called it a science tree. WTF??
