While touring New Jersey early Tuesday to ostensibly survey the damage incurred by Hurricane Ida, President Joe Biden was heckled about the dishonor he brought to America with his decision to abandon U.S. citizens in Afghanistan.
He responded during a speech later that afternoon by bizarrely claiming the hecklers were out-of-towners upset with his “climate change” views. And then at the tail end of the speech, he hollered at a 7-year-old boy at the behest of Sen. Chuck Schumer.
Video footage of the president visiting a neighborhood in Manville that morning shows a male heckler shouting, “He’ll leave them [presumably Afghanistan] in ruins and leave Americans behind!”
“He will leave you behind! You guys protecting him — he’ll leave you guys behind,” the man added, addressing the police officers escorting Biden.
A woman can then be heard shouting something similar, though, it’s hard to decipher exactly what she’s saying.
The man then utters someone’s name and says that person was “buried in Arlington [in] 2011 for what? He lost his life for what?”

According to the New York Post, the unidentified man “stood in his yard with a campaign flag for former President Donald Trump. Reporters positioned between Biden and the man said Biden did not react to the taunts.”
The fact that the man had been standing “in his yard” makes it clear that he actually lives in Manville, contradicting the president’s claim later about out-of-towners.
The man wasn’t alone in his anger.
“Other pro-Trump protesters had greeted Biden’s motorcade along its route through North Jersey. Multiple protesters were photographed giving the president a middle finger as he drove from Hillsborough Township to nearby Manville,” according to the Post.
Hours later, the president delivered a veritable campaign speech in which he blamed Hurricane Ida on so-called “climate change” and claimed that his infrastructure and social spending packages that economists have warned would be disastrous for the economy would fix it.
“Folks, the evidence is clear: Climate change poses an existential threat to our lives, to our economy. And the threat is here; it’s not going to get any better. The question: Can it get worse? We can stop it from getting worse,” he said.
“And when I talk about ‘building back better,” he continued, referencing the slogan for his exorbitant infrastructure package, “I mean … you’ve got to build better, so if the storm occurred again, there would be no damage.”

It’s not clear if it’s even technologically possible to prevent a hurricane from wreaking havoc.
The president then pivoted to talking trash about the people who’d heckled him earlier that morning.
“Walking these neighborhoods, meeting the families and the first responders, seeing how folks are doing after this destruction and pain and another devastating storm, is an eyeopener,” he said.
“The people who stand on the other side of the fences who don’t live there, who are yelling that we’re talking about interfering with free enterprise by doing something about climate change — they don’t live there,” he added.

His statement made zero sense. The reason the hecklers were standing “on the other side of the fences” is because they live in the homes the fences surround.
The president also suggested the hecklers were out-of-towners angry over his “climate change” views.
“[P]eople are beginning to realize this [climate change] is much, much bigger than anyone was willing to believe. And a whole segment of our population [is still] denying this thing called ‘climate change,'” he said.
Biden not pleased with angry shouting from NJ Trump supporters as he walked through the streets.
“The people who stand on the other side of the fences who don’t live there….”
He claims they opposed action on climate change, but it was obvious they were angry about Afghanistan

At the end of the speech, the president was urged by Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer to “look at” a “nice kid with the American flag” and “say hello,” and so Biden did as he was told.
“How are you, pal? … How old are you,” the president said to the child.
“Seven,” the child replied.
“Oh, you’re getting old,” Biden replied, going off on a completely different tangent.
“And, by the way, the neat thing about America: Every time we end up with a problem going into a serious circumstance, we come out better than we went in. That’s because we’re so diverse. That’s America. Be proud of it,” he said.
It’s not clear what so-called “diversity” has to do with American obtaining success in its endeavors. In fact, it’s not even clear what America obtaining success in its endeavors has to do with Biden, because thus far he’s obtained failure at every single step.
Meanwhile, as tens of thousands of Afghan allies and hundred of U.S. citizens remain trapped in Afghanistan, the Biden administration is focused on calling out the Taliban for its “patriarchy.”
“The State Department on Tuesday expressed concerns over the makeup of the new interim Afghan government announced by the Taliban, including the lack of female leaders and the past actions of some of those appointed to top posts,” according to The Hill.
“We have made clear our expectation that the Afghan people deserve an inclusive government,” a State Department spokesperson reportedly said.
Unfortunately for the Biden administration, members of the Taliban don’t give a damn about “inclusion,” “diversity” or “climate change.”
