If you watched the last debate on Thursday night, you will remember the moment when Julian Castro attacked Joe Biden.
He tried to imply that Biden was unable to remember something he had said just minutes before.
The entire audience gasped.

Liberals did not like this one bit. In fact, the ladies of The View came after Castro for this. Big time.
The Washington Examiner reported:
‘Put a fork in it, the campaign is over’: The View slams Julián Castro’s ‘ageism’
The View hosts took aim at Julián Castro after he attacked Joe Biden’s age during the third Democratic presidential debate.
“Put a fork in it, the campaign is over,” host Meghan McCain said Friday on the show, calling Castro’s attack on Biden a “Trump tactic.”
Joy Behar, who is the same age as Biden at 76, said she and people her age could turn on Castro over his ageism. “I have to question Castro’s intelligence,” Behar said.
“I personally found it cringeworthy,” Abby Huntsman said. “I would say that was probably the nail in the coffin for Castro. I think this is one of the last times you’re going to see him on a debate stage.”
Host Sunny Hostin called the comment “very, very tone-deaf.”

Now, Castro is trying to play the victim.
Castro Fundraises Off Biden Spat: ‘I’m Being Viciously Attacked’
Presidential candidate Julián Castro is trying to fundraise off his controversial spat with former Vice President Joe Biden, whose memory he insulted during Thursday’s Democratic primary debate in Houston.
“I spent every second on last night’s debate stage fighting for you — and now I’m being viciously attacked for it,” Castro said in an email blast to donors and supporters on Friday…
“This is the biggest challenge my campaign has ever faced. I’ve never needed you to have my back with $5 more than I do in this defining moment,” Castro’s fundraising letter said. “I could either play it safe and give Vice President Biden a free pass like everyone else. Or I could speak up, challenge the conversation, and demand answers for you and your family. I’m not in this race to play it safe.”

Looks like Castro can dish it out but he can’t take it.
