Biden isn’t very popular.
President Biden on Tuesday traveled to New York and New Jersey to tour areas struck by deadly flooding from Tropical Storm Ida, but he received a hostile welcome from some North Jersey residents who heckled him and flashed middle fingers.
Biden repeatedly attributed the flooding that killed at least 50 people last week — 13 of them in New York City — to climate change as he pushed his $4.7 trillion infrastructure and social spending bills.
A Manville, NJ, man interrupted Biden’s message by shouting, “Resign, you tyrant!” as he toured a devastated neighborhood. The heckler stood in his yard with a campaign flag for former President Donald Trump. Reporters positioned between Biden and the man said Biden did not react to the taunts.
Other pro-Trump protesters had greeted Biden’s motorcade along its route through North Jersey.
Multiple protesters were photographed giving the president a middle finger as he drove from Hillsborough Township to nearby Manville.
