Last Thursday, former Vice President and 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden had a meltdown when an Iowa voter asked him to defend himself against his Ukrainian corruption allegations.
Biden called the man «fat,» challenging him to a «push-up contest,» and calling him a «damn liar.»
The outburst by Biden was so catastrophic that commentators on left-wing MSNBC are beginning to turn on him.
“This issue is going to come up. This is the whole centerpiece of the impeachment hearing,” radio programmer for Sirius XM Zerlina Maxwell said during an interview on MSNBC. “He has to be prepared to respond to people to protesting or attacking him on this topic,” she also noted.

Biden clearly doesn’t like it when people question him about his questionable behavior regarding Ukraine.
“We all know Trump has been messing around in Ukraine… but, you on the other hand, sent your son over there. He not only worked for a gas company, but he had no experience in … You’re selling access to the President just like [Trump] is,” the Iowa voter said to Biden during a campaign event.
“You’re a damn liar man,” Biden shockingly responded.
“I saw it on the TV,” the voter said.
“You see it on TV? No, I know you do. By the way, that’s why I’m not sedentary, I get up,” Biden continued.
Biden then attacked the man over his appearance and proceeded to challenge him to a push-up contest.
“Let’s run; Let’s do whatever you want to do,” Biden said.
Biden later addressed the man as, “Look, fat…” as audience members gasped while they turned to look at each other.
Biden then falsely stated that, “No one has said my son did anything wrong.»
The Biden campaign is denying any wrongdoing by the former Vice President and is making false claims while trying to defend his actions.
«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,'» tweeted senior adviser to Biden’s campaign, Symone Sanders.
Questions have been raised about Biden’s potential corruption regarding Ukraine and he may at some point be forced to testify.
On Wednesday, Biden spoke out on what he would do if he was forced to testify in the impeachment inquiry if it were to make its way to the Senate.
White House legislative affairs director Eric Ueland recently said that the White House wants live footage of the impeachment trial if it makes its way to the Senate.
“The underlying impeachment rules of the Senate afford the president a full suite of rights to argue his case on the facts and on the merits,” Ueland said. “That’s why we believe quite strongly that in order to make the president’s whole case in contradiction to a partisan process which doesn’t allow him to make his full case, that we need both a full trial and the opportunity to call witnesses and work a trial over here on the Senate floor.”
“The president wants his case made fully in the Senate with a full trial and that’s a point we’re going to make consistently,” Ueland continued.
During a campaign event in Iowa, Biden responded, saying “No, I’m not going to let them take their eye off the ball. The president is the one who has committed impeachable crimes, and I’m not going to let him divert from that. I’m not going to let anyone divert from that.”
