Ryan had been saying if the United States looked weak it would embolden adversaries to test America and instead of letting him finish what he was saying Biden interrupted Ryan with a smile, almost laughing in the Representative’s face.
As a result, many to took Twitter to discuss Biden’s use of the work “malarkey:” not because they agreed or disagreed with what Biden had called malarkey but just for the fact that he had used it.
Political comedian Bill Maher tweeted, “Malarky!' - yes, Joltin Joe taking it to Lyin Ryan! Take note, Barry!”
For those who may not know the exact definition of the word, considering it had been rarely used until Thursday night’s debate, malarkey is defined as meaningless talk or nonsense.
