Joe Biden's "No Malarkey" campaign bus (Twitter)
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.
