Student: I Was Humiliated By Joe Biden

The female college student who former Vice President Joe Biden called a "lying, dog-faced pony soldier" during a town hall in New Hampshire has spoken out.

21-year-old Madison Moore, an economics student at Mercer University, was involved in an awkward exchange with Biden after she asked him about his electability following his rough showing in Iowa. Biden, who has developed a reputation in this campaign for getting short with people when asked questions he doesn't like, complained about the Iowa caucus and went after Moore when he asked her if she had ever been to a caucus.

Biden asked her, "You ever been to a caucus?"

When Moore claimed she had, Biden snapped back, "No, you haven’t. You’re a lying, dog-faced pony soldier."

Although Biden insisted he was joking, Moore later told the Daily Mail she was extremely embarrassed.

"It was kind of humiliating to be called a liar on national TV by the former vice president," Moore told the Daily Mail. "Instead of answering that question straightforward, his immediate response was to attempt to invalidate me by exposing my inexperience."
