Whoever thinks it’s a ‘clever campaign strategy’ for Biden to call a voter a horse’s a**, threaten to slap the man and say he was “full of s—, is going to have to see a chiropractor after all of this twisting.
Yes, President Trump hits his political opponents back, hard, whenever he is attacked. But comparing this to Biden’s out-of- control temper tantrum when confronted with a legitimate question by a concerned voter is absurd.
And, “nice touch” by MSNBC, to edit the video of the confrontation:
MSNBC's take on Joe Biden attacking a union worker in Michigan, calling him "full of sh*t", a "horse's ass," and threatening to slap the worker?
Just Joe "mixing it up" 🙄
They also selectively edited the video to leave out the insults and the threat. Manipulation! pic.twitter.com/Ub4ZNI3B4z

President Donald Trump turned insulting big-name rivals and celebrities into a form of modern political art. His top Democratic challenger, Joe Biden, has refined it into a post-modern name-calling style exhibited in limited fashion to voters who confront him with cheap shots.
“Don’t be such a horse’s ass,” Biden scolded a worker at an auto plant in Detroit on Tuesday as Michigan voters went to the polls.
The worker had falsely asserted that Biden wants to “end our Second Amendment right” to own guns….
But the heated exchange, in which Biden threatened to slap the man and said he was “full of s—,” was just the latest example of a tough-talk tactic the former vice president has deployed repeatedly to push back on critics on the campaign trail….
They see a candidate who has risen in the polls and in early state primaries by demonstrating his resilience to Democratic voters and one who is telegraphing to the broader electorate that he’s ready to go toe-to-toe with the bombastic Trump if he wins his party’s nomination.
“Kind of amazing that anybody thinks this video makes Biden look anything other than terrific,” David Frum, a former speechwriter for President George W. Bush who supports Biden, wrote on Twitter. “He shushes the aide who wants to lead him away — and then engages a hostile critic face to face, fact to fact. Impressive.”….
