President Biden spoke in Howell, Michigan on Tuesday to push his “Build Back Better” agenda and many thought it was a hot mess full of slurred words, gibberish, odd statements, and highlighted by protesters brandishing “F*** Joe Biden!” signs.
During his speech, Biden repeatedly was unclear in what he was saying, referred to his grandpop and a “jargy station” – likely trying to say “charging station,” and made very little sense at times. The speech confused many and was allegedly almost impossible to understand.
“Parenthetically, when you build a [jargy] station, it’s like back in the day when my grandpop worked for American Oil Company back in the turn of the… in the 1920… in that area… they went from state to state convincing people that they put… they allowed them to put 20,000 gallons of gasoline under the ground. They didn’t want them around,” Biden haltingly stated.
His speech was awkward and extremely strange from the get-go. He spoke at the training facility for the International Union of Operating Engineers. As he took the podium, he said, “Hello, Michigan! It’s good to be back!” Biden was then subjected to an extremely tepid and muted welcome.
I could drink a 12-pack and not slur this much.

Following the extremely lackluster greeting, Biden proceeded to make a strange comment concerning Governor Whitmer.
After praising Whitmer, he oddly thanked her Lt. Governor who “covers her in every way, both in terms of physically, and mentally, and every other way.”

The seating at the union hall and training facility was socially distanced and there were very few chairs. They were evidently not expecting a big turnout for the president’s speech.

The lack of attendance at the speech was overshadowed by the massive group of protesters who reportedly greeted Biden.
They lined the streets as he arrived in Howell. Vehicles and signs enthusiastically proclaiming “F*** Joe Biden!,” “Trump won,” and even a “Let’s Go Brandon!” were seen. One sign said “Build Back Broke,” according to The Detroit News. People gave Biden the finger as he drove past, expressing their disrespect for him and his heavy-handed policies.

The display evidently angered Biden who took a swipe at the protesters during his speech while pitching his $3.5 trillion social spending package.
“And notwithstanding some of the signs that I saw coming… that’s why 81 million Americans voted for me. The largest number of votes in American history, Clear majority are supporting, when they supported me,” claimed a triggered Biden as he spoke to a tiny audience.
" … that’s why 81 million Americans voted for me, the largest number of votes in American history. Clear majority …”

Biden claimed to reporters that the signs energized him.
“Makes me smile,” he declared. “I get more pumped up.”
Those who showed up to protest Biden’s massive spending spree and his destructive policies that have brought the nation to its knees weren’t shy about voicing their opinions.
“The money has to come from somewhere,” protester Londa Gatt told Fox 2 News. “You can’t keep printing it.”
“I think this is reflective of how upset people in everyday America are, when you leave the Washington bubble, about the spending going on in Washington, D.C.,” Meghan Reckling, who is the chair of the Livingston County Republicans in Michigan, stated.
“The easy answer is, he is probably trying to boost Slotkin and give her some props,” Meshawn Maddock, who is the co-chair of the Michigan Republican Party, noted, referring to Democratic U.S. Rep. Elissa Slotkin, who is coming up for reelection in 2022. “I think it is a clear indication of where Slotkin is going to be on this (infrastructure) vote.”
“Slotkin is not the moderate she said she was,” Republican Paul Junge, Slotkin’s 2020 opponent, claimed. “The people of this district are going to see it and vote her out. I intend to be that alternative.”
“Sleepy Joe thinks that this is sleepy little Howell and it’s not,” one of the protesters named Jackie Ludwig asserted.
“We just want Biden to know we’re not happy with his spending,” Ludwig’s husband, Philip Ludwig, remarked. “We’re not happy with the way our country’s going and the job he’s performing. And we would like him to step down.”
Social media went crazy over the protesters’ sentiments towards Biden:
