A heckler accused Joe Biden of molesting children while the former vice president spoke in Wilmington, Delaware, during his book tour on Sunday.

“What about the girls you molested on C-SPAN at the Senate swearing-in?” the man screamed, according to USA Today.


The crowd instantly started booing and yelling in response to the disruptive question.

“This is not Trump’s world,” Biden responded once the crowd settled down, but then restarted the noise following the vice president’s quip.

The outburst came as Biden was discussing his son’s feelings on the Earl Bradley case, a pediatrician who was convicted of molesting hundreds of children. Beau Biden chose not to run for the Senate so he could focus primarily on the case.

Biden’s American Promise Tour focuses on his new book “Promise me, Dad: A Year of Hope, Hardship and Purpose.” The book revolves around the loss of his son, Beau Biden, to brain cancer back in the summer of 2015.

The vice president has considered a potential 2020 presidential bid but has said he won’t make that decision until after the November midterm elections.
