It’s easy to see why the adults make Uncle Joe sit at the kids’ table at Thanksgiving.
The former vice president shouted at rival Elizabeth Warren, and referred to Bernie Sanders as “Vladimir Putin.”
"I am deeply grateful to President Obama who fought so hard to make sure that agency was passed into law," Sen. Elizabeth Warren said after Joe Biden tried to claim credit for helping win approval for the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau #DemocraticDebate pic.twitter.com/6b4w5qgEQq

Talking about the Consumer Protection Bureau, Warren said, “The big banks fought us, the Republicans fought us, some of the Democrats fought us. But we got that agency passed into law.”
Joe Biden jumped in as she ended her statement.
“I agreed with the great job she did,” he said. “And I went on the floor and got you votes,” he continued, raising his voice and waving his hand at her.
“I got votes for that bill! I convinced people to vote for it! So let’s get those things straight, too,” Biden lectured.
Warren, who momentarily looked stunned, responded, “I am deeply grateful to President Obama who fought so hard to make sure that agency was passed into law,” as Biden laughed at her.
Biden huffed into the microphone as Warren added she was “deeply grateful to every single person who fought for it.”
During another moment, Biden was ranting about Vladimir Putin, and strangely pointed at Bernie Sanders as he said the Russian leader’s name.
A light-hearted moment between Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders on stage draws laughs from the debate audience:

BIden was bashing Trump and said, “He says, ‘I believe Vladimir Putin…” and pointed at his social rival.
“Suggesting I’m Vladimir Putin here?” Sanders interjected as the audience laughed at Biden and the point was lost.
