Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden was confronted for dodging questions in the state of New Hampshire. Biden did not take any questions from either the press or the voters during his two-day trip to the Granite State that wrapped up this weekend.
With his role in son Hunter’s Burisma Holdings scandal taking center stage as President Donald Trump’s legal team takes over opening arguments in Trump’s impeachment trial, Biden is clearly looking for the path of least resistance to make it through the early primaries as he competes with Bernie Sanders.
It makes sense that Biden’s team would want to take him away from the camera lenses.
Disturbing video footage show former Vice President and presidential hopeful Joe Biden having what some have characterized as a psychotic episode after being asked a question, screaming at and apparently shoving a reporter with a balled fist.
At a campaign event in Mason, Iowa Biden was asked by CBS reporter Ed O’Keefe, “Yesterday, you said you accepted Bernie’s apology, now you’re attacking him, why are you doing that? Why wasn’t his apology enough, Mr. Vice President?”
Biden slowly turned towards the reporter, who repeated, “Why attack Sanders?”
Biden started waving his hands and lunged forward, bellowing, “Why why why why why why why!”
“You’re getting nervous, man! Calm down, it’s okay,” Biden snapped. “He apologized for saying that I was corrupt. He didn’t say anything about whether or not I was telling the truth about Social Security.”
Biden then shoved the reporter in the chest with a closed fist and stormed away.
