Biden gets hostile welcome in NJ touring damage caused by Hurricane Ida

DM

President Biden on Tuesday traveled to New York and New Jersey to tour areas struck by deadly flooding from Tropical Storm Ida, but he received a hostile welcome from some North Jersey residents who heckled him and flashed middle fingers. Flooding killed at least 50 in the Northeast last week, 13 of them in New York City. In Manville a man shouted “resign, you tyrant!” as Biden toured a devastated neighborhood. A pool report said the heckler was standing with a Trump flag in his front yard. Reporters positioned between Biden and the irate local said the president did not react to the taunts. 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. One person held a US flag-turned-protest banner that said “F— Biden And F— You For Voting For Him.” Still, other people appeared to appreciate the president’s visit. He gave out hugs and words of encouragement while walking past Manville front yards strewn with water-damaged furniture.
