Democratic presidential hopeful Joe Biden exploded at a retired Iowa man who accused him of sending his son Hunter to join a Ukrainian energy firm and being too old to run for president Thursday.
“You’re a damn liar, and that’s not true,” Biden snapped at the man during a campaign event in Iowa, as an audience of adults and children watched.

Biden’s spokeswoman Symone Sanders later claimed that Biden said: “Look, facts,” not “Look, fat,” referring to the man, even though the audio of the remark clearly sounds like “fat.”
To be clear: Any assertion VP Biden said a word about the gentleman’s appearance is making this something it is not. In the latter part of the exchange, the VP began to say “Look, facts” then said “here’s the deal.” If you’ve been to a Biden event, you’ve heard this before.

‘I am 83 and I know damn well I don’t have the mental faculties I did when I was 30 years old.’
Then he changed the topic, saying he was concerned ‘Trump has been messing around in Ukraine,’ adding: ‘He’s no backbone.’
‘But you, on the other hand, sent your son over there, gave him a job working with a gas company, he had no experience with gas or nothing, in order to get access for the president. You’re selling access to the president just like he does.’
That prompted Joe Biden to explode.
‘You’re a damn liar, man. That’s not true,’ Biden told the man – looking straight at him.
‘And that’s not true. And no one has ever said that.’
‘I’ve seen it on the TV,’ the man shot back. He identified himself as retired.
‘You’ve seen it on the TV? And by the way, that’s why you’re – I’m not sedentary, I get up …’ Biden said, swerving to physical fitness issues and potential feats of strength, as well as a potential mano-a-mano IQ test.
‘You want to check my shape man, let’s do push-ups together here, man. Let’s run. Let’s do whatever you want to do,’ he saidDon't forget to Like Godfather Politics on Facebook and Twitter, and visit our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
