Former Vice President Joe Biden uttered an odd line during a question and answer session in New Hampshire over the weekend, calling a voter a “lying dog-face pony soldier.”
At an event in Hampton, 21-year-old student Madison Moore asked Biden why he fared so poorly in the Iowa caucuses, where he came in fourth place.
“Iowa’s a Democratic caucus,” Biden said. “You ever been to a caucus?”
Moore nodded yes, but Biden wasn’t buying it.
“No, you haven’t,” he said. “You’re a lying dog-faced pony soldier.”
Biden has had some tense moments on the campaign trail, including calling a voter in Iowa a “damn liar.” Last month, he told someone to “go vote for somebody else.” In this case, the line was a joke and many in the room laughed, including the woman who questioned him. However, she later issued a statement saying that while she had never been to a caucus, she didn’t appreciate the comment.
Look I know that we expect some Biden gaffes, that is kind of a Biden trademark, but seriously, what the hell?
I mean this is not the kind of insult that typically just rolls off of the tongue, and why in the hell is he insulting potential voters anyway?
Biden claims that he borrowed the line from an old movie but nobody can locate any movie that used that particular phrase.
Well, regardless of where it originated, Biden needs to never say anything like that again.
Unless of course his goal is to lose this primary.
