Joe Biden came unhinged today in Iowa when a retired farmer asked him to his face about his son’s shenanigans with Burisma Holdings, the corrupt Ukrainian gas company that paid him millions while his Biden was in the White House.
Joe Biden EXPLODED in anger at a retired farmer who asked about his son’s payouts from a Ukrainian gas company.
“You’re a damn liar,” Biden said before challenging him to “an IQ test.”
Biden also called the man “jack” and “fat” and “too old.”

“Joe, I’m an old farmer, a retired farmer, and I’m kinda unique because I’m not a Republican,” the man told Biden during a stop on his No Malarkey! tour.
“Okay, I’ve got two problems with you,” he continued. “One, is you’re damn near as old as I am. You’re too old. I’m 83, and I know damn well I don’t have the mettle back in the days I did when I was 40 years old.
“Alright, forget that,” the man said. “The other …”
“I’m not forgetting that,” Biden interjected, “I’ll answer it.”
“I got a question I want you to answer,” the man pressed on as the crowd chuckled at Biden.
“We all know that Trump has been messing round in the Ukraine over there, holding their foreign aid for them to come up, say there’s an investigation,” he said. “We know all that.
“He’s no backbone,” the farmer said, “but you on the other hand, sent your son over there to get a job and work at a gas company that he had no experience with gas or nothing – in order to get access to the president.
“You’re selling access to the president, just like he was,” the man said, “so you’re …”

“You’re a damn liar, man,” Biden cut him off. “That’s not true and no one has ever said that, no one can prove that …
“The hell it ain’t, I see it on the TV,” the man fired back.
“You see it on the TV?” Biden said, turning to personal insults. “By the way, that’s why I’m not sedentary, I get up and …”
Others attempted to chime in to defend the 77-year-old career politician, but he waved them off.
“L, Le, Let, Let em go,” Biden said. “Let him go.
“Look, the reason that I’m running is because I’ve been around a long time and I know more than most people know, and I can get things done,” Biden lectured the farmer. “That’s why I’m running.”
He then challenged geriatric voter to feats of strength.
“You wanna check my shape? Let’s do push-ups together, old man, let’s do this run, let’s do whatever you want to do, let’s take an IQ test …” Biden said as the crowd’s applause roared over his remarks.
“Number two, no one has said my son has done anything wrong and I did not on any occasion, and no one has ever said it, not once …,” Biden continued, the old farmer cutting him off.
“I didn’t say you were doing anything wrong,” he said.
“You said I set up my son to work in an oil company,” Biden boomed, raising his voice. “Isn’t that what you said? Get your words straight, jack!”
“That’s what I hear on MSNBC,” the man said.
“You did not hear that on MSNBC,” Biden objected.
“The hell I didn’t,” the farmer shot back. “I know what I heard.”
“Look, okay, I’m not going to get in an argument with you, man,” Biden said.
“I don’t want to either,” he said.
“Well ya you do,” Biden pressed. “But, uh, look fat, here’s the deal. Here’s the deal.”
The old farmer didn’t let Biden finish.
“It looks like you don’t have any more backbone that Trump does,” he said as the crowd gasped in horror.
“Any more questions?” Biden said.
“I’m not voting for you,” the farmer said as he passed off the microphone.
“Well I knew you weren’t,” the former VP shot back. “You’re too old to vote for me.”
The dust-up came during the same stop Biden reportedly became confused about his time in the Obama administration, which he briefly believed to be in the 1970s.
Francis Brennan posted a video of the lapse to Twitter.
Joe Biden’s “No Malarkey” tour, seems to be going well.
He just forgot when the Obama-Biden administration was in office.

Biden campaign advisor Symone Sanders took to Twitter to insist Biden didn’t call the man “fat”.
To be clear: 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." If you've been to a Biden event, you've heard this before.

“To be clear: 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,'” she claimed.
Of course, he did say “fat,” which is a portion of “fatso.”
