‘Get your words straight, jack!’ Biden loses it when man asks about Burisma, challenges him to ‘pushup’ contest

Joe Biden got into an intense back-and-forth with a voter in Iowa on Thursday. Video of the incident is going viral and is yet another black eye for Biden’s presidential campaign.

The rally attendee started talking about President Trump and Ukraine, but he eventually accused Biden of “selling access to the president” and getting his son, Hunter, a job with the controversial oil company Burisma.

“[You’re a] damn liar, man. That’s not true,” Biden appeared to say, clearly triggered by the man’s words.

The man eventually said the reports about Biden and Ukraine have been aired on television, and Biden responded, “That’s why I’m not sedentary.”

Then what appears to be a volunteer tries to take the microphone away from the man asking the question. Biden says, “Let him go,” and lets the man keep the microphone.

He then began tooting his own horn pretty hard when he tried explaining why he is running for president.

“Look the reason 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 said. “And that’s why I’m running.”

He didn’t stop there though. In a truly bizarre turn of events, the former vice president then challenged the man to a pushup contest.

“And you want to check my shape, let’s do pushups together here, man. Let’s run. Let’s do whatever you want to do. Let’s take an IQ test,” Biden said to the cheers of the small crowd.

Apparently encouraged by the cheering crowd, Biden unwisely continued on.

“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 —”

The man interjected to say he never accused Biden of doing anything wrong. Biden, clearly agitated at this point, fired back at the man.

“You said I set up my son to work at an oil company. Isn’t that what you said!? Get your words straight, jack!” Biden said.

From there it only gets stranger. Biden then refers to the man as “fat” at one point and the voter tells Biden he has “no backbone.”

Check out the video below:

Biden, 77, is a regular gaffe machine on the campaign trail, but this video might be a new low for him. He’s getting so frustrated with some random guy in Iowa, yet we should trust him to be the leader of the free world?

Obviously, the video has not inspired much confidence in Biden:

Video after the exchange shows the voter who got into the argument with Biden then verbally tussling with a Biden voter, who tells him to “get out of here.” Check that exchange out below:

Never satisfied with just one gaffe, Biden decided that he was going to keep going, misidentifying the state of Iowa, and forgetting which decade he was Vice President in.
