During a campaign event in Milford, New Hampshire, former Vice President and 2020 presidential candidate Joe Biden was called a "pervert" by several members in the audience.
"Biden, 77, was speaking on Sunday night ahead of the state's Feb. 11 Democratic primary, where he is trailing South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, according to RealClearPolitics. A handful of those present interrupted the event on multiple occasions with heckles," the Washington Examiner reported.
"Quite a start to Biden’s event in Milford, NH — He was quickly interrupted near the top of his remarks by a protestor who called him “creepy” & made false claims about him being a “pervert,”" said NBC News's Marianna Sotomayor in a tweet. "Another woman then yelled “quid pro Joe” before another man began to shout about Ukraine."
ABC News reporter Molly Nagle also tweeted, "Wow—quite the start to @JoeBiden’s second event in NH. A man from the back of the room calls Biden a “pervert” and accuses him of touching women and children, before a second man asks Biden where the money is he and his son “earned from Ukraine” from the other side of the room."
Video footage of the event shows a man in the crowd asking Biden about his inappropriate touching of women and children.
“You touch kids on video, and women," the man shouted. "We don’t need another old, white man running for president."
Biden tried turning the situation on President Trump by saying, "This isn't a Trump rally."
The shouted back, stating that he was not a Trump supporter as he said, "Don't touch kids, you pervert!"
"This is democracy," Biden said as he got interrupted by another audience member who shouted, "The truth is going to come out, buddy."
