Joe Biden has a long history of not being able to take being challenged. He may be the first person ever running for president who seemed to have a habit of insulting voters when they asked him questions that he didn’t like, including calling voters “lying dog-faced pony soldier” and “look, fat,” as well as telling another voter he was lying and “full of sh*t” before saying that he should “take him outside.”
Biden showed that temper again when he was challenged earlier about whether his continued release from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve was “political” to help Democrats in the election.
He also had another moment when he was asked a question by Fox’s Peter Doocy as to which was the top domestic priority for the Administration — inflation or abortion?
Now, we saw how badly House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) handled that question when asked by MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell. Pelosi said she didn’t agree with the polls that said that inflation and crime were the most important issues, not abortion.

She denies what Americans are saying is most important and she wonders why the Democrats are in trouble in this election.
Biden went in the same direction, but instead of just answering the question, he also added an insult against Peter Doocy as well.
DOOCY: "Just hoping to clarify for midterm voters. Top domestic issue, inflation or abortion?"

“They’re all important, unlike you, there’s no one thing,” Biden shot back at Doocy. “It crosses the border…We oughta be able to walk and chew gum at the same time.” Then he raised his fist and beat it out of there.
Now I’m not sure whether there he’s saying “unlike you” meaning Doocy isn’t important, or “unlike you, there’s no one thing” meaning he can do more than Doocy by concentrating on more than one issue/question. Either way, it was an effort to put him down. That’s Biden, just a nasty, small man. He got in trouble before when he was caught on a hot mic calling Doocy a “son of a bitch.” He later called him up but didn’t say he was sorry for what he had done. He also called him a “one horse pony” on another occasion, in yet a third insult.
In addition to insulting Doocy, he also refused to truly answer the question. Saying “they’re all important” means that you’re not treating one as more important than the other. “All are important” means no, inflation isn’t your “top priority.” Once again, that shows voters exactly what you care about — and it isn’t the economy. He doesn’t want to offend anyone on the left by saying abortion isn’t the most important thing and he doesn’t want to talk about inflation because he’s done such a horrible job on it. Indeed, had he cared about the economy or inflation as his top issue, he wouldn’t have driven us into the state that we are in now with the worst inflation in 40 years — he was too busy spending on his agenda items making everything worse.
But it’s funny he said they “oughta be able to walk and chew gum at the same time.” He’s shown that he can’t do that while he’s failed at virtually every issue that he’s faced.
