Biden drew criticism Sunday after he called a woman a 'lying dog-faced pony soldier' at a campaign event. In an exchange shared on social media, 21-year-old Georgia college student Madison Moore asked him to explain his poor performance in Iowa.

'It's a good question,' replied Biden, whose status as national frontrunner for the Democratic nomination was shaken by a damaging fourth-place showing in Iowa's caucuses.

'Have you ever been to a caucus?' he asked the Mercer University student, who nodded.

'No, you haven't,' Biden said. 'You're a lying, dog-faced pony soldier.' 

Moore told The Washington Post it was 'totally irrelevant whether I've been to a caucus or not. Joe's been performing incredibly poorly in this race. His inability to answer a simple question from a nobody college student like me only exacerbates that reality.'

In his defense, I would remind readers of what his staffer said, that that was a line from a John Wayne movie. However, it almost sounded like an Asperger's response.

Except it turns out that Wayne never said it.

According to the UK Guardian, you are correct:


"Mr Biden told the crowd: "As my brother who loves to use lines from movies, from John Wayne movies, there's a line in a movie, a John Wayne movie where an Indian chief turns to John Wayne and says, 'This is a lying, dog-faced pony soldier.'"

But Mr Biden's references to John Wayne's sentimental westerns - mashing together lines from 1949's She Wore a Yellow Ribbon and 1953's Hondo, as well as Tyrone Power-starring Pony Soldier - don't include that quote."

Maybe it is a form of Tourette's syndrome, rather than the neurological afflictions mentioned in the above comments?

This story even made Reuters coverage all over the world:
