A rare moment happened in Iowa today when Joe Biden was actually called out for telling a lie.
Fox News’ Peter Doocy was reporting on a Biden event in Iowa when he fact-checked Biden on the spot.
Biden, the 2020 front-runner, claimed to Doocy and other reporters that he had the biggest crowds at his events compared to the other 2020 presidential candidates:
“What I’m trying to do is go around from town to town, and I’m drawing as big of crowds, or bigger than anybody. Have you seen anybody draw bigger crowds than me in this state?”
Oops! Doocy dared to answer Biden’s question with honesty. Doocy answered “yes” to Biden and then said he saw a bigger crowd at a Warren event in Des Moines, Iowa in January.
Doocy was on “Special Report” later when he told the rest of the story of how Biden came at him saying he’s a “big boy” and can handle Doocy coming after him. Remember that Doocy only told the truth which is hardly “coming after” Biden.
“The vice president didn’t seem to like that because a few minutes later, he singled me out.”
Biden delivered a sophomoric comment for a man in his 70’s:
“I mean, I know you, I know you’re going to go after me no matter what I’ve got. Yeah, you and it’s OK. Good. I’m a big boy. I can handle it.”

Biden might be testy because Senator Elizabeth Warren is gaining ground on him. His own wife said people might have to “swallow” to vote for the candidate in the lead (Biden) in order to beat President Trump in 2020.
Jill Biden: “I know that not all of you are committed to my husband. And I respect that…Your candidate might be better on, I don’t know, health care than Joe is but you’ve got to look at who’s going to win this election.”
