Joe Biden got a much-deserved welcome from the crowd of attendees during a stump speech for failed gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe.
Campaigning on behalf of the radical Democrat governor, who openly stated on the 2021 campaign trail that parents should have less input into their own children than the government, Biden got off to a rough start after being interrupted by a speech-halting chorus of “We want Trump!”
It was enough of a problem that McAulliffe could only stand their helpless with a stupid grin while Biden stopped his remarks and made various failed efforts to acknowledge, talk back, and ignore them.
Take a look as Joe Biden gets a warm Virginia welcome:
The 2021 governor’s race eventually went to Republican challenger Glenn Youngkin, whose victory was largely seen as a repudiation of the government mishandling school issues. In addition to McAuliffe declaring the government knows what’s best for kids, The Daily Wire also broke a huge story detailing abuse, scandal, and coverup of a high school rape at the hands of a transgender student.
Perhaps a third reason for the surprise upset victory was the fact that the Democrat machine made a tired effort to make the governor’s race all about former president Donald Trump. The New York Post noted that in the same speech, which Biden was eventually able to give, he named Trump over twenty times despite neither featuring him in the contest nor him having made a political endorsement in the race at the time.
President Biden on Tuesday seemed fixated on former President Donald Trump in a Virginia stump speech for Terry McAuliffe, the Democratic candidate for governor.
Biden mentioned Trump by name 24 times during a brisk, 17-minute speech in a park near the Pentagon in northern Virginia, attempting to use his predecessor’s legacy to bash Republican Glenn Youngkin, who is tied with McAuliffe in polls in a state Biden won by 10 points just a year ago.
Trump has neither campaigned for Youngkin nor made an endorsement in the race.
The Biden family, along with their former boss Barack Obama, have all been on the receiving end of numerous chants and heckles. Biden is famously roasted at sporting events and other venues with large crowds when “Let’s Go, Brandon!” or the more hilarious, albeit more vulgar, version breaks out.
And Obama, the self-annointed political messiah, finally had his aura busted when stumping for another Democrat governor in 2022. Obama is a deft public speaker, but it’s not often we have seen him confront heckles. It was a welcome change.
Here was Obama taking some heat during a 2022 midterm rally among what he thought was a friendly crowd.

Breitbart reported on that interaction, in which a clearly-flustered Obama was struggling to figure out the best way to respond.
“Come on,” Obama complained as he paused his speech for more than two minutes to address the heckler.
“But this is what I mean. This is what I mean. I mean we’re having a conversation,” Obama said as the crowd attempted to drown out the heckler by chanting “Obama” repeatedly.
Right now, I’m talking, he urged. “You’ll have a chance to talk sometime soon. We don’t have to interrupt each other. We don’t have to shout each other down, that’s not a good way to do business. You wouldn’t do that in workplaces. You wouldn’t just interrupt people in the middle of a conversation. It’s not how we do things.
“So listen,” Obama said in an attempt to regain control of the crowd. “No, no, no no. Wait, wait, wait,” Obama repeatedly said.
“Quiet down,” Obama told the crowd. At one point, he shouted, “Hold on a minute,” at the crowd to regain their attention.
