Biden’s temper on full display as former VP gets feisty with Fox News reporter
If the campaign can be considered a test of character, Joe Biden just earned himself detention.
These still-formative days of the 2020 election have provided voters with much more than simple glimpses into the policies and politics of any particular potential President.
Sure, we know all about Bernie Sanders’ affinity for democratic socialism, and we’ve heard more than our fair share of Tulsi Gabbard’s isolationist ideology. But what many voters are seeing in the days surrounding the circus of the Iowa State Fair is just who these candidates are, personally. The staged photo ops of 2020 contenders scarfing down corn dogs and fried dough is certainly part and parcel to this bid to inject some humanity into the proceedings – but what happens when things go a bit sideways?
It seems as though former Vice President Joe Biden is about to find out, after his confrontation with a Fox News reporter has made headlines.
Fox News reporter Peter Doocy issued a live fact check to former Vice President Joe Biden when the 2020 front-runner claimed to reporters that he drew larger crowds than other Democratic candidates.
“What I’m trying to do is go around from town to town and I’m drawing as big of crowds, or bigger than anybody,” Biden said in Iowa on Tuesday. “Have you seen anybody draw bigger crowds than me in this state?”
“Yes,” Doocy responded before noting that he saw a bigger crowd for Sen. Elizabeth Warren when she visited Des Moines in January.
That’s when the longtime Senator went off.
“The vice president didn’t seem to like that because a few minutes later, he singled me out,” Doocy said on “Special Report.”
Biden told Doocy he was a “big boy” and could handle Doocy allegedly coming after him. “I mean, I know you, I know you’re going to go after me no matter what I’ve got. Yeah, you and it’s OK. Good. I’m a big boy. I can handle it,” he said.
Biden has struggled with the grueling campaign schedule in 2019, consistently correcting himself and mitigating the impact of several gaffes per week.
His advanced age and metered appearance calendar has earned the 2020 frontrunner the Trump-given nickname “Sleepy Joe”.
