If there is anything that the people of Iowa take more seriously than their caucus, it’s their commitment to the principle of “Iowa Nice.” One thing is clear, when he’s in the Hawkeye State, Joe Biden refuses to embrace the state’s important creed.

Using today as evidence, Joe Biden may not always know that he’s in Iowa or when he was vice president for that matter. However, that does not excuse his behavior towards caucusgoers with concerns about his campaign.


When a retired farmer, concerned about the unusual circumstances that surrounded Joe and Hunter Biden’s dealings with Ukraine asked the former vice president for answers, he was met with a very angry and rude candidate. After telling the caucusgoer “to get his words straight, Jack,” by calling him “a damned liar,” Biden chose to take it one step further by attacking him by calling him, “fat,” and “sedentary,” while challenging him to an “IQ test” or a “push-up” contest.

“Joe Biden is looking for a three-peat in Iowa. No matter how Joe Biden’s campaign looks to spin this, it’s clear he’s not ‘Iowa Nice.’” – RNC Spokesperson Preya Samsundar
