A heckler disrupted President Joe Biden’s speech in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, drawing the attention of the president, who called him an “idiot,” before being escorted out.
In the middle of his speech to a crowd at Laborfest, where labor unions and their members gather annually, a heckler yelled at the president onstage, garnering a reaction.
Biden halted his speech to ask security to “let him go,” delivering a quip in the process.
“All right, God love you. Let him go, let him go,” Biden said as security began to escort the man out. “Let him go. He’s — look, everybody’s entitled to be an idiot.”

His quip was met with laughs and applause from the audience.
“Extreme MAGA Republicans don’t just threaten our personal rights and our economic security — they embrace political violence,” he said, returning to his speech.
The remarks of the heckler couldn’t be immediately determined, but video footage showed him being booed and approached by security.

He returned to the heckler later with a much less charitable approach.
He said everyone in the United States must be “more committed to saving American democracy than the MAGA Republicans and that guy out that door [who] are destroying democracy.”

Biden gave his speech at Milwaukee as part of his Labor Day tour of two key battleground states, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania, in order to tout his administration’s accomplishments for workers ahead of the midterm elections.
The only idiot and liar there that day was holding a microphone. PedoHitler shows his true colors again.
Again…Dems saying “save our Democracy”.
So the Republican party or MAGA people are a threat to democracy? Get out of here.
We are a republic for which it stands…
I wish I could tell you to your stupid evil face… That as much as you are threatened by MAGA, most of the American people, and all the hate you hold in your heart for us, you are hated and despised so much more then you can hate us. I couldn’t imagine what it would feel like, with that much hatred towards me, what it would feel like knowing that we know the truth about the election you stole, because your a small “man” unable to have the knowledge that OUR PRESIDENT TRUMP has, there’s no comparison….. Ever! You were the runt of your family, the unpopular kid in school, no one likes you then and no one likes you now. One way or the other we the people will hold you accountable, and throw your dirty corrupt ass outta PRESIDENT TRUMP’S white house, the house he shares with the American people. There’s reasoning with you I’m sure, your to much of an “IDIOT” to understand the American people. Get ready to scoot yourself out OF OUR PRESIDENTS CHAIR, cause mark my words….. He’s coming for you, and we’re all behind OUR PRESIDENT TRUMP.
