Former Vice President and 2020 Presidential candidate Joe Biden is clearly feeling the "Bern" as Socialist Bernie Sanders continues to narrow his gap in the Democratic primary race.
On Wednesday during a campaign event in Iowa, Biden completely lost is when he got physical with a reporter who asked him about Sanders.
“Yesterday, yesterday, you said you accepted Bernie’s apology. Now you’re attacking him. Why are you doing that?” CBS reporter Ed O’Keefe asked. “Why wasn’t his apology enough, Mr. Vice President? Why attack Sanders?”
Biden immediately lost it as he confronted the reporter and put his hands on him, shouting, “Why, why, why, why, why, why, why! You’re getting nervous, man. Calm down! It’s okay!”
The troubled 2020 candidate then claimed that Sanders only “apologized for saying that I was corrupt, he didn’t mention anything about whether or not I was telling the truth about Social Security.”
Biden then gave O'Keefe a light punch as he left the area.

This isn't the first time that Biden has absolutely lost his composure at a journalist. In September, Fox News reporter Peter Doocy asked the former Vice President about his Ukraine scandal involving his son Hunter Biden.
“Mr. Vice President, how many times have you ever spoken to your son about his overseas business dealings?” Doocy asked.
“I have never spoken to my son about his overseas business dealings,” Biden replied. “And here’s what I know, I know Trump deserves to be investigated. He is violating every basic norm of a president. You should be asking him the question, why is he on the phone with a foreign leader trying to intimidate a foreign leader, if that’s what happened, that appears to be what happened, you should be looking at Trump.”
Back in August, Biden assalted a girl who asked him how many genders there were.
Check out what The Daily Wire reported:
The incident happened while Biden was campaigning at the “Political Soapbox” at the Iowa State Fair when a girl named Katie, who is a student in the state, approached Biden with questions.
“How many genders are there?” Katie asked.
“There are at least three,” Biden responded.
“What are they?” Katie asked.
Biden becoming visibly angry, responded: “Don’t play games with me, kid.”
“When I asked the question it took a few seconds for the question to register [in Biden’s mind] and then he responded with ‘three,'” Katie said of the incident.
“I started to walk away and then, it doesn’t stop there, he grabs my arm and pulls me back to make eye contact with him again and yells something about marriage at me,” she added. “So I walked away and I was mad, just very, very mad that someone would actually treat me like that.”
