Joe Biden slams Minnesota Trump supporters as ugly folks

Vice President Joe Biden slammed Trump supporters in Minnesota on Friday, labelling them “ugly folks.”

During the course of Biden’s drive-in rally, Trump supporters drowned out the former vice president by honking in their cars.

“These guys are not very polite, but they’re like Trump,” Biden fumed, raising his fist towards the pro-Trump crowd.

“They’re gonna be okay. We’re gonna take care of them as well. We need to come together. Need to fight for all these folks.” reports: Later, Biden referred to the Trump supporters nearby as “ugly folks” as he explained why he believed a nationwide mask mandate to be a “patriotic duty.”

“Dr. [Anthony] Fauci called for a mask mandate last week,” Biden stated. “This isn’t a political statement like those ugly folks over there beeping their horns. This is a patriotic duty for God’s sake.”

According to those on the scene, there were more Trump supporters who showed up for Biden’s event than Biden supporters.

The Trump supporters gathered outside of Biden’s event also recited the Pledge of Allegiance, which was captured on tape by a reporter.

Biden made a visit to the state in an attempt to shore up support in the face of a determined push by President Donald Trump to win Minnesota, which he came close to doing in 2016.

He repeated much of his typical stump speech — including false claims about Social Security, and debunked claims about what Trump said about soldiers.
