Joe Biden was booed as he embarked on a nine-day vacation to Lake Tahoe on the West Coast after visiting Hawaii to survey damage from the recent wildfires.
The Biden’s are renting the $18 million home of environmental activist and former Democratic presidential candidate Tom Steyer.
A video of Biden approaching the press and speaking about economic issues before a crowd of onlookers jeered began circulating on social media.
“I’ve been talking to the UAW. Obviously, I’m concerned. I think that there should be a circumstance where the jobs that are being displaced and replaced with new jobs, the first choice should go to the UAW members who had the jobs, and the salary should be commensurate,” Biden said as he was drowned out shouting.
The footage was praised by Biden critics, who slammed the president for his awful response to the Maui fire.
“Good- he deserves it,” Fox News contributor Liz Peek wrote.
“The best part is the look on his face when he hears it,” GOP Rapid Response Director Jake Schneider wrote.
“This is great!” The account representing the Chris Plante Show wrote. “Watch Biden get booed by the [crowd] in Lake Tahoe!”
Biden’s vacation also made headlines when the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) scrambled fighter jets to intercept an aircraft detected within the temporarily restricted area, Fox News reported.
“Two NORAD F-16 fighter aircraft and a U.S. Coast Guard MH-65 Dolphin responded to a civilian aircraft that violated a Temporary Flight Restriction (TFR) area near Lake Tahoe, Nevada, this morning,” NORAD wrote in a statement.
“During this event, the fighter aircraft dispensed flares — that may have been visible to the public — to gain attention from the pilot,” the statement added.
“Flares were employed with the highest regard for the safety of the intercepted aircraft and people on the ground.”
