‘These guys are not very polite’: Biden calls Trump supporters who disrupted Minnesota rally ‘ugly folks’

Joe Biden lashed out at Minnesotans disrupting his campaign rally, saying the “ugly folks” were not polite for interrupting his speech criticizing Donald Trump over the Covid-19 pandemic.

“Dr Fauci called for a mask mandate last week, this isn’t a isn’t political statement like those ugly folks over there beeping their horns, this is a patriotic duty for God sake,” Mr Biden said.

It is the second time in the past week that Mr Biden insulted disruptive Trump supporters after saying they were “chumps” in Pennsylvania last week, and it evokes the infamous “deplorables” speech from Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election.

Mr Biden’s drive-in rally in Minnesota’s Falcon Heights began with attacks on the president’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic as the apparent Trump supporters attempted to drown out the audio with car horns.

“These guys are not very polite but they’re like Trump. But look, they’re going to be ok. We’re going to take care of them as well. We need to come together, made a fight for all these folks,” he said.

“There’s a reason they want to hear me, because they know the president doesn’t’ say anything. So they’re not used to not hearing anything.”
