Biden Heckled During Primetime Speech [Video]
ON THIS DAY IN HISTORY…
1783: The Treaty of Paris signed in Paris ends the American Revolutionary War between Great Britain and the United States of America.
President Joe Biden’s primetime speech in Pennsylvania was interrupted by hecklers repeatedly chanting “f—k Joe Biden” and “let’s go, Brandon.”
Biden’s 24-minute speech, which he called “The Soul of the Union,” centered around the condemnation of former President Donald Trump and MAGA Republicans.
The New York Post pointed out that the “f—k Joe Biden” chant was audible “to anyone listening on the official White House video feed.”
Biden addressed the protestors, saying: “They’re entitled to be outrageous. This is a democracy. Good manners is nothing they’ve ever suffered from.”
Earlier in his speech, Biden went off-script to address the chanters.
“Americans have often made the greatest progress coming out of some of our darkest moments, like you’re hearing in that bullhorn,” he said.
Biden faced criticism over his dramatic choice of backdrop, which Fox News host Tucker Carlson described as a “blood-red Nazi background.”
