    Joe Biden Losing His Grip on Sanity

    Joe Biden's campaign manager says this was "a joke". What kind of joke is it to challenge and call a supporter a liar?

    The quote "lying dog-faced pony soldier" is reportedly from a John Wayne movie. I've probably seen every major Wayne movie at one time or another and I don't recall the quote. I doubt most people would recall it. So why quote something that no one is going to get, and then use it inappropriately?

    I especially like the last line from Madison Moore in the article below (although I would have used the word "illustrates" rather than "exacerbates").

    Biden calls voter a 'lying dog-faced pony soldier'
    AFPFebruary 10, 2020, 12:07 AM CST

    Manchester (United States) (AFP) - Former US vice president Joe Biden drew criticism Sunday after he called a woman a "lying dog-faced pony soldier" at a campaign event in New Hampshire. In an exchange that was widely shared on social media, 21-year-old Georgia college student Madison Moore asked the presidential hopeful to explain his poor performance in the Iowa caucus last week.

    "It's a good question," replied Biden, whose status as national frontrunner for the Democratic nomination was shaken by a damaging fourth-place showing in Iowa's caucuses. "Have you ever been to a caucus?" he asked the Mercer University student, who nodded. "No, you haven't," Biden said. "You're a lying, dog-faced pony soldier."

    Biden's campaign press secretary Remi Yamamoto tweeted the comment was a joke: "It's from a John Wayne movie and he's made it plenty of times before."

    But the remark still drew criticism online, with many Twitter users saying the remark was not funny. "If he can't handle a simple question from one of his own supporters, how can Joe Biden possibly take on Donald Trump one on one for six months?" tweeted Donald Trump Jr, the US president's son.

    Moore told The Washington Post it was "totally irrelevant whether I've been to a caucus or not." "Joe Biden has been performing incredibly poorly in this race. His inability to answer a simple question from a nobody college student like me only exacerbates that reality," she said.

    As a self-acknowledged Trump supporter, you probably don't want to go this route.. just sayin'.

    Trump has a lot of personality defects, but -IMO - incoherency isn't one of them.

    Hey, I hope Biden wins the Democratic nomination (since Gabbard has no chance whatsoever). He is the lesser of evils, assuming he can keep his marbles together.

    His press secretary said, "It's from a John Wayne movie and he's made it plenty of times before."

    Is there any recorded instance of Biden using that phrase on a previous occasion?

    I think Joe is trying to hard to offset Trump's accusation of "Sleepy Joe" --- Joe is trying his best to show he's a tough guy and "still has it".

    OK I am going to say this is a non-story. If you watch the video (below) you can tell he IS joking by his tone and the audience laughing. But it still is not a good idea to call a member of the audience a liar, even jokingly. He want's their votes, right?

    Actually, yes. I did a filtered search of "Biden" and "pony soldier" and found he used the phrase several times last year. And, interestingly, it was always mentioned by the media as being awkward.

    And you really shouldn't call a woman "dog-faced" unless you want to be whooped.

    From the video, it seemed like the crowd was very friendly, and they laughed when he took off his coat like he was getting ready for a fight -- I think it was all good-natured kidding.
