Joe Biden pointing his finger at an activist who asked him about abortions has become an instant meme

Despite being the front runner for the Democratic nominee for the 2020 US election, Joe Biden's campaign hasn't been entirely smooth sailing.

Whether he is being accused of inappropriate comments towards 10-year-old girls or saying that he has 'no empathy' for millennials, you have to wonder who is actually backing Biden?

One person who almost definitely won't be supporting him is the woman whose face he got into and pointed his finger at during a rally in the US state of Iowa.

Speaking to women's rights activist K.C. Cayo, the former vice president was quizzed on his recent reversal of the Hyde Amendment, a controversial law that will ban all federal funding for abortions, except in cases of rape, incest or to save a mother's life.

Although Biden has declared that he no longer supports the law, Cayo asked him to take a stronger stance on the issue and provide more protection to assault survivors.

However, the 76-year-old took exception to the Wisconsin activists question, telling her that 'nobody has spoken about it, done more or changed more than I have.'

A picture was captured of this exact moment, with Biden pointing a finger at Cayo, who was wearing a bemused look on her face and quickly made its way onto the Internet.

Cayo's image immediately started to blow up on Twitter, with many criticising the candidate for using such an intimidating action and body language towards a woman.

Cayo did later add that she did feel threatened by Biden's tone and admitted that she thought he was going to hit her.

While this could have some serious implications for Biden and his overall bid to become president, the internet has decided to have some fun with this picture, all at Biden's expense and yes, you guessed it a meme was born.
