The wheels are coming off of the No Malarkey express as Joe Biden limps into New Hampshire desperately in need of a positive showing after last week’s Iowa disaster.
While the news has been focused on the Democratic party’s inability to conduct a proper counting of votes in a small state and technological failures with a new app, it hasn’t gotten much attention that the former vice president came in fourth, barely above Amy Klobuchar.
The pathetic showing in Iowa has clearly agitated lunchbucket Joe who has often come across as a grumpy old man during the long run-up to the primaries and on Sunday, he had another of his bizarre exchanges with a voter.
During a campaign appearance in Hampton Beach, a female student but Biden on the spot over his dismal performance in the Hawkeye State and in a bizarre response, the geriatric gaffe machine called her a “lying, dog-faced pony soldier” whatever the heck that may be.
Via Grabien, “Biden Calls Skeptical New Hampshire Voter ‘a Lying, Dog-Faced Pony Soldier’”:
On Sunday, Joe Biden snapped at a voter in New Hampshire, calling him a “lying, dog-faced pony soldier.”
The dust-up came after the voter asked Biden, “How do you explain the performance in Iowa and why should the voters believe that you can win a national election?”
“You ever been to a caucus?” Biden replied.
After the voter said she indeed had attended a caucus, Biden shot back: “No you haven’t. You’re a lying dog-faced pony soldier.”
“You gotta be honest,” he continued. “I’m gonna be honest with you. It was a little bit confusing in Iowa. But let’s assume it was all exactly right.”
Biden told the unknown voter Iowa has a poor record picking presidential winners.
Biden was speaking at the first of two Sunday campaign events in Hampton, New Hampshire. The latest polling from the Boston Globe/Suffolk University is tracking Biden in fourth place, only one point ahead of Sen. Amy Klobuchar.
Biden’s damage control team immediately flew into action, something that they have had a good deal of practice with and claimed that the candidate was only joking and that the strange insult is from an old John Wayne movie.
Maybe so but it isn’t exactly helping sleepy Joe to be spouting quotes from the legendary movie star for two major reasons.
1: While an American legend, the Duke has been dead for decades and it makes him appear to be even older to the younger voters that the Democrats will be depending on if they are to make a serious run at President Trump.
2: In the era of the social justice cult of the woke, John Wayne is despised by the left as a racist as well as of a symbol of genocide for his many roles in western movies where he battled Indians.
Biden already faces a tough Tuesday in the Granite State where he will certainly be clobbered by socialist Bernie Sanders with the primary in his own back yard and media darling South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg.
When it comes to winning the battle for hearts and minds, Biden continues to come up lacking and for a man who has spent decades as a politician should have long ago learned that it isn’t wise to insult the voters.
