HAMPTON, NH—Joe Biden fired back at a supporter criticizing his performance in the Iowa caucuses. She questioned why she should support him when he didn’t even finish in the top three in Iowa.
Biden’s response was baffling: “I don’t want to talk to you no more, you empty-headed, animal food trough-wiper.”
The supporter was confused: “I’m sorry, what?”
“I fart in your general direction,” he continued. “Your mother was a hamster, and your father smelt of elderberries!”
“Are… are you just quoting Monty Python?” she asked, clearly baffled.
“You dirt-eating piece of slime! You scum-sucking pig! You son of a motherless goat!”
“That’s not even the same franchise!” she shouted back.
Biden wasn’t fazed, though, telling her to “go away or I will taunt you a second time.” His poll numbers have gone up since the exchange as he’s now quoting movies made within the last fifty years.
