'A lying, dog-faced pony soldier': Joe Biden calls a voter
The former vice-president Joe Biden says he is the most electable Democrat. This is while he finished fourth in Iowa and insulted a student.
To be more precise, he called Madison Moore a 'lying, dog-faced pony soldier' after she asked him a question at his campaign event in Hampton, New Hampshire.
The 21-year-old economics student at Mercer University in Macon, Georgia, told people to wave off the former vice president's remark as a 'joke' is 'kind of insulting'. Biden later explained he was just quoting no one else but John Wayne.
Moore said: 'It was kind of humiliating to be called a liar on national TV by the former vice president. Instead of answering that question straightforward, his immediate response was to attempt to invalidate me by exposing my inexperience.
'He has been performing extremely poorly in this race and the fact that he couldn’t just straight answer my question without bullying or intimidating just exacerbates that fact.'
She added: 'I am 21-year old college student, like what the hell do I know? Who cares who I am or my experience. Just answer the damn question.'
The phrase “dog-faced soldiers” appears in the 1949 John Wayne film “She Wore a Yellow Ribbon,” while there are a few references to “pony soldiers” in the 1953 John Wayne movie “Hondo.”
On Monday, a new Quinnipiac University poll, had Bernie Sanders pulling ahead of Biden, with the Vermont senator getting 25 percent of the vote in the Democratic primary while Biden, 77, was only at 17 percent.
This marks the first time Sanders, 78, has taken the front runner slot in a national poll, as the candidates head into the New Hampshire primary tomorrow following the surprising Iowa results - where Biden came in fourth place.
Flight attendant, confused with Meghan Markle! What does the woman who can pass as the Duchess of Sussex look like
It is said that each of us has at least one "double" with which he shares most of the prominent features. Whether it is in another corner of the world or nearby, many people have found, over time, their "clones", even if they were not in any case related to the genetic factor involving similarities between degrees of kinship.

Christine says that she initially took the situation as a joke, but that she also began to notice the similarities in the end, especially after Meghan became the Duchess of Sussex and images of her circulated everywhere.
Later, she enrolled in a specialized agency and became, part-time, Meghan's impersonator. Christine also did pictorials in her new position and even posed with Prince Harry's lookalike. But a role in a movie about Meghan, in which to play her role, would be the stewardess's biggest dream.
During a visit to London, the flight attendant was assaulted by admirers of the Duchess of Sussex, who were shocked to finally find out that the one in front of them was not Meghan. "At first I was shocked, but anyway I took it as a compliment, I always thought the Duchess was very beautiful," said Christine.
