Flashback: Biden Tells Auto Worker He’s ‘Full Of S***’ In Resurfaced 2020 Clip

As it relates to the president’s claims that “Bidenomics” is good for the American autoworker, or any other kind of American worker for that matter,  the president is “full of s***” — to steal a phrase from the man himself.

The Biden administration’s push to “electrify” the car industry is going to kill hundreds of thousands of jobs. He’s tried to stave off the backlash by sending billions to “retrofit” existing factories, but even then plenty of well-paying roles will be eliminated in key swing states, according to one study.

To try and pull the wool over the eyes of the striking United Autoworkers’ eyes, Biden recently joined the picket line on Tuesday in Michigan. While there, Biden promised he was on the side of the blue-collar voter, all while ignoring that his administration’s goal of boosting electric car sales will push auto manufacturing to countries like China where it is cheaper to make parts necessary for such vehicles.

For many, the scene brought to mind another time on the 2020 campaign trail when Biden was videotaped lashing out at a Michigan factory worker who dared stick up to him over gun rights. While then-candidate Biden was touring a Fiat Chrysler plant in Detroit, a worker accused Biden of  “actively trying to end our Second Amendment rights.”

“You’re full of s***!” Biden said before calling him a “horse’s a**.”

Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) shared the clip on Wednesday, saying, “Don’t ever forget how Joe Biden actually feels about working-class Americans. What kind of elected leader talks to voters that way?”

Former President Donald J. Trump also spoke in Michigan this week, and pointedly told UAW, “Biden’s mandate isn’t a government regulation, it’s a government assassination of your jobs and your industry. The auto industry is being assassinated.”

He added, explaining that so long as the Biden administration is focused on forcing EVs onto the American people, the auto industry will suffer.

“And it makes no difference what you get, I don’t care what you get in the next two weeks or three weeks or five weeks,” he said of contract negotiations. They’re going to be closing up and they’re going to be building those cars in China and other places. It’s a hit job on Michigan and on Detroit, and that’s not sustainable.”

Indeed, CNN has asked the Biden administration what they have to say to “rank-and-file” union members who oppose EV, in spite of union “leadership” that wants it to happen.

Well, in short, Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg dismissed such concerns with the same attitude Biden had toward the Fiat Chrysler employer in 2020.

“Look, this technology is happening,” he said bluntly this week. “It is coming. It is coming no matter what.”

It should be noted there was an overlooked quote from Biden’s infamous interaction with that autoworker in March of 2020. The worker said to Biden, “You’re working for me, man.”

“I’m not working for you,” Biden retorted — a remark explained away or ignored by legacy media.

Now, as his EV push threatens to destroy the livelihoods of Americans everywhere, that statement seems to be remarkably true. Biden’s not working on behalf of U.S. autoworkers — no matter what he said at his stop at the picket line.
