Biden to Iraq War Protester Shouting ‘My Friend Died’: ‘So Did My Son’

Vice President Joe Biden coolly responded to an Iraq War protester at a Hillary Clinton campaign event earlier tonight who talked about a friend who died in the war.

When the crowd first tried to drown out the protester, Biden said it’s okay and engaged with him on his objections.

And when the man again shouted to Biden “My friend died!”, Biden responded, “So did my son.”

Beau Biden served in the military for a number of years and passed away last year after his battle with brain cancer.
