Biden Given the Middle Finger While Visiting Nantucket on Thanksgiving Day
Biden receives a not-so-warm welcome
Joe Biden received a not-so-warm welcome during his visit to Nantucket on Thanksgiving day after one man reportedly gave the Democrat's motorcade the middle finger.
Biden and the first lady greeted the U.S. Coast Guard members before leaving for their vacation home on Rubenstein’s island.
Coast Guard members received “challenge coins” to commemorate their service.
Biden said to Coast Guard members:
"I’m not joking when I say I’m thankful for these guys – I’m thankful for them, and everybody, I mean it from the bottom of my heart."
"I’ve watched them in the South China Sea, I’ve watched them in Afghanistan, Iraq."
"I’ve watched them in South America … Wherever they are.”
"But one gentleman standing on his porch giving the middle finger to the presidential motorcade as we neared the coast guard station,” the White House pool reporter Zolan Kanno-Youngs said.
The man's gesture appeared to encapsulate how Americans feel about Biden.
This has been seen in conservative stadiums across the country with chants of “Let’s go, Brandon,” which is a euphemistic way to say “f*ck Joe Biden."
Neon Nettle reported on Thursday that Biden's approval rating had hit a new low:
Recent polling shows just 42 percent of the survey’s participants approve of his job performance.
The number is the lowest Biden has received in an NPR/Marist poll since he was sworn into office.
According to NPR, voters’ top economic issue is as follows:
- Inflation 39 percent
- Wages at 18 percent
- Labor shortages 11 percent
- Gas prices and unemployment 9 percent
According to RealClearPolitics, Biden's Thanksgiving approval rating at 41.6 percent.
As Brietbart reported:
Additionally, rising inflation means higher costs for American families on Thanksgiving. According to the U.S Department of Agriculture, the price of a Thanksgiving dinner with turkey and sides is up five percent on average from last year.
However, the American Farm Bureau Federation’s research shows the cost of Thanksgiving dinner up 14 percent.
An Obama-era ethics director, Walter Shaub blasted Biden for staying at the Rubinstein island compound.
"Just a friendly reminder, @WhiteHouse, that @potus will have to pay fair market value for the stay on Nantucket or disclose the gift of free lodging in his annual disclosure in May 2022."
"There’s a disclosure exception for personal hospitality, but that only applies if the head of the Carlyle Group is staying there with the Bidens."
"I suspect the WH is all over compliance with the rule — and oblivious to the ethical optics."
