Manchester, US: (HRNW) 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.”
