Mock 'funeral' for the former Vice President's candidacy held in New York

Presidential candidate Joe Biden was faced with chants of “Drop out, Joe!” on Thursday night in New York City after he left a campaign fundraiser, according to reports.

Protesters from the group New York Communities for Change held mock “funeral” for the former vice president's candidacy, featuring a black coffin humorously covered with Biden 2020 stickers.

“The campaign is pretty much done,” one “mourner,” said.

“The people have spoken. Young people have spoken.”

Biden's struggle to connect with young voters has become more apparent despite being touted as the Democratic Party’s frontrunner for its 2020 presidential nomination.

Biden's poor results in Iowa and New Hampshire promoted him to leave early before the primary results were in.

But on Tuesday, Biden told supporters in South Carolina that he wasn't going to give up on the race.

“It is important that Iowa and New Hampshire have spoken, but we need to hear from Nevada and South Carolina and Super Tuesday and beyond,” he said.

“We haven’t heard from the most committed constituents in the Democratic Party -- the African-American community -- or the fastest-growing segment of the party -- the Latino Americans.”

Biden highlighted the importance of the African-American and Latino votes, saying you “can’t be the Democratic nominee and you can’t win the Democratic nomination as a Democrat unless you have the support of black and brown voters.”

According to the New York Post, Biden was in midtown Manhattan courting all Street figures as he hoped to raise at least $1 million.

Scheduled attendees at the Wayfarer restaurant event included former Morgan Stanley CEO John Mack, Centerview Partners executive Alan Hartman, Citigroup exec Ray McGuire, Blackstone operating chief Jonathan Gray, Snap chairman Michael Lynton and former Obama economic adviser Jeffrey Zients, CNBC reported.

On Thursday, Biden declared he could "hardly wait" to get President Donald Trump on the debate stage during an appearance on ABC’s “The View,”

The White House hopefull called Trump “the most corrupt president we’ve ever had.”

"The best thing when you’re attacked, go to somebody else, take your eye off the ball, focus on something else," Biden said.

"I’ll be damned if I’m going to give him that opportunity. I can hardly wait to get him on the debate stage …"
