Leading Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden called a Detroit factory worker “full of s—” in a testy exchange on gun policy Tuesday as voters cast ballots in Michigan’s crucial primary.
Video shared by reporters on Biden’s tour of the Detroit auto plant shows the former vice president surrounded by workers as he argued face to face with a man in a hard hat and an orange high-visibility vest.
The worker accused Biden of “actively trying to end our Second Amendment right.”
Biden immediately responded: “You’re full of s—.”
Biden was visiting with members of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers who are building a new Fiat Chrysler assembly plant, CNBC reports.
“I support the Second Amendment. But the Second Amendment — just like right now, if you yell ‘fire,’ that’s not free speech.”
“I have a shotgun, I have a 20-gauge, a 12-gauge,” Biden said. “You’re not allowed to own [just] any weapon. I’m not taking your gun away at all. You need 100 rounds?” Biden said
The worker then claimed Biden had said he was going to take guns away.
“I did not say that! I did not say that!” Biden fired back, raising his voice.
The worker said he had heard Biden make that claim in a viral video.
“It’s a viral video like the other ones that came out” that were “lies,” Biden said.
“Don’t be such a horse’s a–,” Biden added as the exchange grew more heated.
