Biden Lashes Out at Protestors During Speech
(TheRedWire.com) – Critics have noted President Joe Biden’s quick temper and tendency to respond negatively to those who irritate him. A report in May 2021 said he had a short fuse, was prone to be impatient, and exploded on those around him. In January, the president called a Fox News White House correspondent a “stupid son of a b**ch.” On Saturday, November 5, he lashed out at protestors during a speech.
While stumping for Democratic candidates in Illinois ahead of the November 8 midterm elections, Biden blasted a group of protestors. Outside the venue, demonstrators carried signs that read “Socialism Sucks” and “Vote Pro-Life.” Another asked, “Where’s Nancy?” referring to the break-in at House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s home earlier in November, where a man with a hammer attacked her husband.

He sarcastically told supporters he loved the signs and said, “Give me a break.” Then, he called them idiots. Additionally, Biden called out Sens. Rick Scott (R-FL) and Ron Johnson (R-WI). Despite The Washington Post fact-checkers giving him Pinocchios, the president repeated the false claim the two conservatives wanted to cut Social Security and Medicare. He wasn’t alone in the attacks on the Republicans. Recently, former Democratic Presidents Barack Obama and Bill Clinton also echoed the claims.
