Biden Has His 'Please Clap' Moment During Debate

Former Vice President Joe Biden asked the crowd at the New Hampshire debate on Friday to clap for Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman to show how much Democrats support him.

"Col. Vindman got thrown out of the White House today, walked out," Biden said. "[President Trump] should have be pinning a medal on Vindman and not on Rush Limbaugh. I think we should all stand and give Col. Vindman a show of how much we supported him. Stand up and clap for Vindman. Get up there...that's who we are!"

Vindman was reassigned on Friday as part of a restructuring of the National Security Council. 

“Today, Lieutenant Colonel Alexander Vindman was escorted out of the White House where he has dutifully served his country and his President.  He does so having spoken publicly once, and only pursuant to a subpoena from the United States Congress," Vindman's attorney said in a statement.

During his testimony in the House impeachment inquiry, Vindman admitted to leaking information during questioning from Republican Rep. Devin Nunes. 

Other Twitter users criticized Biden for attacking Limbaugh.
