Biden Raises Eyebrows After He Calls a New Hampshire Voter a 'Lying Dog-Faced Pony Soldier'

Share

Former Vice President Joe Biden (D) set social media ablaze with a combination of mockery and confusion after a video of an encounter with a New Hampshire voter where he responded with an unusual quip.

At a campaign stop in the Granite State, Biden was asked by a female voter how he could convince voters that he would be able to pull through and win the nomination after a disappointing fourth-place finishing in the Iowa Caucus.

Biden asked her if she had ever been to a caucus before, and when she said yes, he responded with a quip that quickly went viral.

“No, you haven’t. You’re a lying dog-faced pony soldier.”

A spokesperson for the Biden campaign said the line came John Wayne movie from the 1950s. This wasn’t the first time Biden used it, after receiving a question from an Iowa voter in January about Obamacare, Biden called the young man a “dog-faced poney soldier” as well.

Several outlets were unable to figure out which Wayne movie the quote supposedly came from.

This is not the first time Biden raised eyebrows for his terse response to potential voters either. On several occasions, Biden has been caught on tape telling individuals to vote for another candidate in the primary.
