Heckler Derails Joe Biden's Campaign Event: ‘Don’t Touch Kids, You Pervert!’
2020 hopeful's campaign event takes awkward turn
Presidential candidate Joe Biden's campaign event in New Hampshire took an awkward turn when a heckler interrupted him while he was answering a question from the crowd.
As the former Vice President was interrupted, he quipped, “Wait a minute, this is not a Trump rally.”
Biden then paused before replying, “I agree with you, man. Nice talkin’ to you.”
Shortly after, a heckler shouted, “Don’t touch kids, you pervert!”
Biden, who was visibly taken aback, paused before attempting to regain his composure.
“All right, well, you know, this is a democracy,” he said.
“The truth is gonna come out, buddy!” one woman yelled.
Biden solemnly responded:
“I hope it does,” he said, waving his hand.
“Let her go, let her go. Ok.”
Biden, who clearly did not want to be asked such a question, snapped at the man calling him “a damn liar" before angrily challenging him to a push-up contest.

“You’re a damn liar, man. That’s not true, and no one has ever said that” Biden quipped.
“You see it on the TV? I know you do. By the way, that’s why I’m not sedentary … The reason I’m running is that I’ve been around a long time, and I know more than most people know, and I can get things done. That’s why I’m running.”
Throughout 2019, the former Vice President's campaign has been littered with embarrassing gaffes and bizarre episodes.
In November, a video surfaced of Biden launching into several confused rambles, leaving many questioning whether he had the mental stability for a presidential run.
Biden randomly discussed children playing with his leg hair and how he "learned about roaches" during a speech on the campaign trail.
