Does a day go by when Democrats aren’t fantasizing about violence or actually practicing it? It’s gotten so bad they’re shooting at Republicans these days, and now we have former Vice President wanting to act out his violent fantasies. Don’t they realize the children are watching?
Joe Biden said he wanted to punch “wiseass” hedge funder Bill Ackman in the face at an infamous Las Vegas dinner showdown.
The former vice president put his fist up at billionaire Ackman after the two got into a testy exchange at an exclusive VIP dinner last month.
According to a witness, towards the end of the dinner as tensions rose, Biden made a fist, held it up to Ackman’s face, and said, with forceful irony, “If I could, I’d punch you in the face.”
It was first reported that the pair clashed after Ackman allegedly made a snarky comment about the death of Biden’s son Beau, who passed away from brain cancer in 2015.
But multiple sources tell Page Six that Ackman didn’t say anything at all about Biden’s son, and the verbal confrontation happened after former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush asked Biden to comment on Donald Trump.
The witness told us that “Biden replied, ‘I am going to have to be careful what I say’ [referring to Trump],” and Ackman quipped, “After all these years, why start now?” Ackman was referring to Biden’s outspoken nature, we’re told.
Biden — who was already testy after being challenged over foreign policy — initially ignored Ackman and talked about Trump, but then added directly to the hedge funder, “Address me with respect,” and calling Ackman a “wiseass.” Another witness added, “Biden clearly didn’t like Ackman. [He] said something like, ‘I’d like to knock this guy on his ass,’ but it was taken as being in jest.”
Biden had also objected to Ackman earlier giving him a friendly slap on the shoulder. “The body language was just off between them,” the source said. “Who is this a – – hole?” Biden reportedly asked a seatmate, unimpressed by the hedgie’s attempts to smooth it over.
Who’s the asshole, Joe? Have you looked in a mirror for clues?
