Elderly Iowa voter who Joe Biden slammed as a 'liar' during explosive exchange over his son Hunter is revealed to be a Marine veteran, 83, who says the ex-VP has a 'wet noodle for a backbone'
The elderly Iowa voter who became embroiled in a heated exchange with Joe Biden at a campaign stop on Thursday has been identified as an 83-year-old veteran. Merle Gorman, 83, who previously served in the United States Marine Corp, made international news after he accused Biden of selling access to the Presidency by sending son Hunter to Ukraine to work for a gas company. The former vice president branded Gorman as a 'liar' before challenging him to a push-up contest. Biden, 77, finished by furiously telling Gorman 'You're too old to vote for me,' despite the fact the pair are only six years apart in age. Source
