‘He Kinda Went Off the Deep End,’ Says Blue-Collar Worker of Biden

A blue-collar worker who was cursed out and threatened by former Vice President Joe Biden says he’s just a “working guy.”

A blue-collar worker who was cursed out and threatened by former Vice President Joe Biden says he’s just a “working guy.”

Biden got into a heated exchange with Jerry Wayne over the Second Amendment during a campaign stop at a Chrysler assembly plant. 

“You are actively trying to end our Second Amendment right and take away our guns,” he told the former veep.

You’re full of sh—t,“ Biden told Wayne.

"I support the Second Amendment. The Second Amendment — just like right now, if you yelled ‘fire,’ that’s not free speech,” Biden replied. “And from the very beginning — I have a shotgun, I have a 20-gauge, a 12-gauge. My sons hunt. Guess what? You’re not allowed to own any weapon. I’m not taking your gun away at all.”

Biden denied saying he wanted to take away anyone’s guns. At that point Wayne reminded him of remarks he made in a “viral video.”

In one video, Biden affirmed his anti-gun stance during an interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper:

Anderson Cooper: "To gun owners out there who say a Biden administration means they’re going to come for my guns?“

Biden: "Bingo. You’re right — if you have an assault weapon. The fact of the matter is they should be illegal. Period. Look, the Second Amendment doesn’t say you can’t restrict the kinds of weapons people can own.”

And during a campaign rally he announced that former Texas congressman Beto O'Rourke would be heading up the country’s “gun problem.”

Biden: "I want to make something clear. You’re going to take care of the gun problem with me. You’re going to be the one to lead this effort. I’m counting on you.“

Last September, O'Rourke told voters, "Hell yes, we’re going to take away your AR-15s.”

Biden denied the authenticity of the videos.

“It’s a viral video like the other ones they’re putting out that are simply a lie,” he said.

“This is not OK, alright?” the blue-collar worker said, to which Biden replied, “Don’t tell me that, pal, or I’m going to go outside with you, man.” “You’re working for me, man!” Wayne said.

“I’m not working for you,” Biden replied. “Don’t be such a horse’s ass.”

Wayne defended his questions during an interview on “Fox & Friends,” pointing out that the former vice president had welcomed the interaction.

“Yeah. I thought I was pretty articulate and respectful,” said Wayne. “I didn’t try to raise any feathers. And he kind of went off the deep end. I saw he was digging a hole. I just kind of let him talk for a while to dig a hole.”
