Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden visited an under-construction auto plant in Detroit on Tuesday morning and had a sharp exchange with a worker who, quoting a “viral video,” accused the former vice president of “actively trying to end our Second Amendment right and take away our guns.”
“You’re full of sh*t,” said Biden, pointing at the man. “I support the Second Amendment. … I’m not taking your gun away. I did not say that. I’d take your AR-14s away.”
“This is not okay,” said the worker, swiping at Biden’s pointed hand.
“Don’t tell me what to do,” Biden responded.
“You’re working for me, man,” said the worker.
Replied Biden: “Give me a break man, don’t be such a horse’s ass.”
Biden was praised on social media following the exchange as ‘Good For Joe’ trended on Twitter:
Good for Joe for not taking any sh*t from ammosexuals — and for standing up against the NRA, gun lobby, and gun manufacturers.— Bill Madden (@maddenifico) March 10, 2020
These are the EXACT blood-soaked organizations, and industries that Bernie Sanders has supported for 40 years. https://t.co/Jipe6GDYRi
