Joe Biden is on the second day of his “No Malarkey” tour across Iowa, and he’s already telling the bull.
Standing alongside former Gov. Tom Vilsack, Biden was touting his foreign policy credentials to a small crowd and said, “Gonna have to assume that position, the moment they’re sworn in on January the 20th, and know the rest of the world knows that person, in this case me, and that I know them.”

He continued, “Putin has no allusions about whether I know him or not. Kim Long Un has no a person— that I know him or not. The same with the president of China, Xi Jinping. I’ve spent a lot of time with these folks.
“They know, they know,” he added.
But Biden has never met Kim, let alone “spent a lot of time” with him.
Biden is in the midst of an 8-day tour across the first caucus state.

He flinched, before opening his mouth and biting her digit.
She laughed as the crowd did, too.
Biden’s bus tour is intended to save face in the early caucus state.
The AP reports:
Iowa polls suggest that Biden, while a front-runner nationally, is in a jumble near the top. Mayor Pete Buttigieg, 37, of South Bend, Indiana, appears to hold a narrow edge over Biden, 77; Warren, 70; and Sanders, 78. The senators have animated the party’s left flank, while Buttigieg joins Biden in Democrats’ center-left wing but is calling for generational change.
“In terms of people out there knocking on doors, who attend other campaign events, district events, I can’t name a member of the southeast Iowa Democrats who’s supporting Joe Biden,” said Glenn Hurst, a leader of Iowa Democrats’ Rural Caucus, tells the AP.
