Former Vice President and current 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden reportedly told a voter in Iowa, “I’m beginning to see why your wife left you.”

The moment was caught on tape.

According to CNBC, Biden called another Iowa voter “fat” and “a damn liar” after the voter questioned his involvement in Ukraine.

Joe Biden zinged a man in Iowa who asked him how to save his marriage.

“My wife recently left me. She’s divorcing me. What can I do to get her back? What advice would you give someone like me to get her back?” the man asked the Democratic presidential candidate at a campaign event in North Liberty, Iowa.

“I’ll talk to you afterwards, OK? I’m happy to. I promise I’ll talk to you afterwards,” Biden, 77, told the man.

“Could we just get this out right now?” the man replied, to which Biden said, “No.”

The man continued talking, and members of the crowd began booing him to sit down.

“I’m beginning to see why your wife left you,” Biden quipped, prompting laughter from the crowd. “Sir, I promise you I’ll spend time with you afterwards.”

Recently on the campaign trail, Biden has made a number of blunders which are undoubtedly causing some voters to question their support for him, including confusing Iraq, Iran, and Ukraine, suggesting non-citizens ought to have the right to run for public office, and failing to appreciate the good President Trump has done for the economy.

As the Daily Wire reports, Biden said Trump was trying to use his own impeachment trial as a way to harm Biden politically.

“That’s like just flat out acknowledging, we’ve been doing everything we can do to keep Biden from being the nominee,” said Biden, referring Trump’s request to the Ukrainian government to investigate him. “And guess what? We tried it in Iraq, it’s not working so well, I mean in Iran, excuse me, we tried in Ukraine.”

Then Biden got into a spat with an audience member who challenged him to see some good in what Trump has done for the country.

Biden refused, saying he could not name a single thing. He even shared a discredited lie that wages were going down in the country.

“There’s only one way you can win this,” the person said to Biden, as the Daily Wire reports. “When you’re on the stage with Donald Trump, you’re going to say, ‘Donald, you have done some good things, I’m going to take what’s good that you did, I’m going to add to it, and I’m going to do it with dignity.’”

The audience member continued: “Not everything that the other side [does] is bad. Not everything about the Democrat ideas are good. There’s good in both.”

“You gotta give me a couple of the good things,” Biden responded.

The unidentified audience member answered: “The good things: the unemployment is good now.”

“Yeah, unemployment is good but wages are down,” Biden retorted.


“Come on, accept the good,” the voter responded. “You said there is no good on the other side?”

“I didn’t say that,” Biden claimed.

“Name one thing that’s good from the other side,” the voter pressed.

“[Mumbling] I can’t think of anything off the top of my head,” Biden said as he quickly tried to move away from the voter.


The Daily Wire reports that in yet another exchange, Biden appeared to suggest a non-citizen could run for office to beat Trump.

“I think you could beat him,” Biden told the man in Council Bluffs, Iowa.

“I don’t think I could, I’m not an American citizen,” the man answered.

Biden said, “Well, you might be able to, who knows.”

The Washington Examiner reports: “Biden is currently an average of 3 percentage points behind fellow front-runner Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders to win Iowa’s kickoff caucuses, according to RealClearPolitics data.”
