Former Vice President Joe Biden unveiled a new campaign bus on Friday — emblazoned with “Joe” and “No Malarkey.”
The “No Malarkey” line was delivered by Biden over seven years ago in a campaign debate against Paul Ryan.
“Former Vice President Joe Biden on Saturday launched his ‘No Malarkey’ bus tour in Iowa, part of a bid to regain momentum among the state’s voters ahead of the nation’s first presidential caucuses,” Fox News reports. “The frontrunner’s eight-day bus tour is part of an effort to sharpen his pitch before the Feb. 3 caucuses as polls have shown Biden slipping in the first-in-the-nation state.”
The former vice president’s campaign was ridiculed on Twitter for the tour.
Here’s some of what people were saying:

Omg, your bus says malarkey?!? What is this the 50's?

Joe you can't post things like this while SNL has a week off. You just can't.
— Miss Laurie Lehner (@AndTheBandAides) November 30, 2019
Pro tip: the people who will decide this election have no idea what malarkey means. It’s not the 50’s anymore, Joe.

I am sorry. I have loved you over the years, but the young people are right. #NoMalarkey is tired and old. This does not connect you to a vast number of voters. Yes, you will have the senior citizens. But you need to reach out to many more. This so does not do that.

Anyone who knows what this even means is already voting for Trump.

I really thought ‘No Malarkey’ was a joke slogan that someone came up with sarcastically. But like… here we are.

you should fire whoever thought this was a good idea

What, was “Tippecanoe and Biden Too” already played out?

This is the freakin' definition of malarkey!

This is the hardest I have laughed today. Thank you, Joe. https://t.co/5hvSgOfwK5

US Democratic rivals trade pre-debate shots as Bloomberg faces major test
Sparring between Mike Bloomberg and the leading Democratic candidates erupted hours before Wednesday night’s debate, previewing what’s expected to be a tense night as the billionaire businessman meets his rivals onstage for the first time.
Both Bernie Sanders’ and Joe Biden’s campaigns took aim at Bloomberg, the former raising questions about the 78-year-old’s health and the latter pointing out reversals in Bloomberg’s stances on key issues.
Will Wednesday’s debate finally prove that Bloomberg is not Batman?
