Much ado is being made about the spirited exchange between Joe Biden and some corpulent guy in Iowa that took him to task about his son's dealings with some Ukrainian company.
Biden's supposed to have said to the guy :
- Look, fat, look, here's the deal...
Now the use of the adjective on its own as form of invective that can be addressed to someone just like that strikes me as odd. I'd have expected something like fatty, fatso or fat something (pig, cow etc.). I'm not a native speaker and I'm wondering if the transcript is right or if Biden actually said something else.
