Democratic presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard got into an impromptu push-up challenge during a Town Hall meeting recently and emerged victorious. The representative from Hawaii was taking questions from attendees in New Hampshire, when a man asked her if she could take on Joe Biden in push-ups.
“Former Vice President Biden has randomly challenged people in the audience to a push-up contest even if they’re in walkers. Do you think you could take him?” the man asked referencing when former US vice-president challenged an 83-year-old retired farmer to do push-ups with him in the middle of an Iowa town hall last month.
“My educated and informed guess would be yes … But I would take most people to a push-up challenge,” Gabbard, a combat veteran who served in Iraq and a member of the Hawaii Army National Guard replied.

Accepting the challenge, the congresswoman donning her white pantsuit and heels got into a push-up battle as onlookers cheered. And after few minutes of sweating it out on the stage, her opponent collapsed and rolled over.

Winning the bout, the congresswoman couldn’t be happier and later told the man to “have fun,” after shaking his hand.
