Former Vice President Joe Biden on Thursday got in a tense back-and-forth with an audience member during an Iowa campaign stop after the man claimed the former vice president sent his son, Hunter Biden, to work for an energy company in Ukraine.

"You're a damn liar, man. That's not true," Biden shot back at the man, who said the claims, which have been circulated by some on the right, were backed up by reporting on television.

Biden then went on to challenge the man to a push-up contest.

"You want to check my shape, man, let's do pushups together here, man," Biden told him. "Let's run. Let's do whatever you want to do. Let's take an IQ test. Ok?"

"I'm not sedentary," Biden said, growing agitated.

When the man replied that he wouldn't be voting for Biden, the former Delaware senator replied: "Of course you're not; you're too old to vote for me!"
