Hecklers assaulted the Joe Biden for President campaign in New Hampshire at a rally to call him a “pervert” and “Quid Pro Joe.” These are all names used for the former Vice President in Republican circles. Watched the video below.

Biden yelled back at the hecklers saying, “This is not a Trump rally.”
“I’ve released 21 years of my tax returns, how many has yours? What’s he hiding?” Biden shouted.
The accusation coming from the White House has been that Biden was doing something untoward in Ukraine in 2016. Trump said that Biden threatened to withhold loan guarantees to the Ukrainian government unless they fire their prosecutor general as he was investigating Burisma holdings while Hunter Biden was on the board.
Biden has already responded to the claims that he has touched women inappropriately during his career. Earlier in 2019, he said, “Social norms have begun to change. They’ve shifted. The boundaries of protecting personal space have been reset, and I get it. I get it. I hear what they’re saying. I’ll be much more mindful.”
Biden also said on Saturday that he would consider nominating President Barack Obama to the US Supreme Court if the former president took offer. He made the claim at a campaign stop in Washington, Iowa.
Biden responded, saying, “If he’d take it, yes.”
If Obama was nominated to the Supreme Court, he would be the second president in U.S. history to have done that. President William Howard Taft served as president between 1090 and 1913 and was nominated to the Supreme Court in 1930. He died the following month after his appointment.
Biden had this to say about the claims that his actions in the Ukraine during the Obama administration were inappropriate.
“I want to clarify something I said yesterday. In my 40 years in public life, I have always complied with a lawful order and in my eight years as VP, my office – unlike Donald Trump and Mike Pence – cooperated with legitimate congressional oversight requests,” Biden said on Twitter.
