Former Vice President Joe Biden challenged a reporter to a wrestling match on Friday.
“You want to wrestle?” Biden asked Huffington Post reporter Igor Bobic, in reply to a request to release his medical records. Bobic declined the challenge.
The exchange was reported by NBC News correspondent Mike Memoli and Jewish Insider reporter Ben Jacobs, who was body-slammed by Republican candidate Greg Gianforte after asking a question about health care policy.
The next day, Gianforte was elected to Congress.
