During a speech in Virginia Friday night, President Biden was interrupted by protesters who are against a controversial pipeline project in northern Minnesota, the New York Post reports.
As the protesters chanted, the audience drowned them out by booing and counter chants of “Let’s go, Joe!”
But Biden intervened.
“That’s okay, that’s all right,” Biden said. “No … Let ’em talk … Look, this is not a Trump rally. Let ’em holler. No one’s paying attention.”
As the Post points out, Biden was speaking in front of about 3,000 people in support of Virginia Democratic gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe, who was previously governor of Virginia from 2014 to 2018. Under Virginia law, governors cannot run for a second consecutive term.
