The 21-year-old college student who was jokingly called a “lying, dog-faced pony soldier” by Democratic presidential candidate Joseph R. Biden in New Hampshire on Sunday said after the now-viral moment that she doesn’t believe the former vice president has what it takes to win.

Madison Moore asked Mr. Biden during a campaign event in Hampton how he expected to gain momentum following an embarrassing 4th-place finish in the Iowa caucuses.

“How do you explain the performance in Iowa, and why should voters believe that you can win the national election?” Ms. Moore asked.

Mr. Biden said it was legitimate question but then fired back, “Iowa’s a caucus. Have you ever been to a caucus?”

Ms. Moore nodded yes, to which Mr. Biden responded, “No, you haven’t. You’re a lying dog-faced pony soldier.”

The Biden campaign later said that the former vice president had used the phrase in the past. It’s apparently an allusion to a line in a John Wayne movie.
