Parade of “Chumps”
Presidential candidate Joe Biden continued his drive-in rally tour on Saturday in Bristol, Pennsylvania, but this time he didn’t appreciate everyone who drove in. As the Democratic nominee was addressing the people and vehicles in attendance, a car parade full of President Trump’s supporters that was parked just outside the rally started making their presence known with waving of Trump flags, honking of horns and people speaking through a megaphone.
An irritated Biden referred to the Trump supporters as “chumps.” “I’m running as a proud Democrat, but I will govern as an American president,” he said. “I’ll work as hard for those who don’t support me as those who do, including those chumps with the microphone out there. Look, that’s the job of the president. The duty to care for everyone. The duty to heal.”
He continued later, “By the way, we don’t do things like those chumps out there with the microphone and Trump guys. It’s about decency.”
Biden was in Pennsylvania for two separate rallies on Saturday. The second was in Dallas, Pennsylvania, and featured rock star Jon Bon Jovi. Wearing a black mask as he took the stage, Bon Jovi removed the mask and played “Livin’ on a Prayer,” “Who Says You Can’t Go Home?” and Do What You Can,” which was recently released and is dedicated to those working on the front lines of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Pennsylvania is considered a crucial swing state for both candidates. Trump won the state by a little more than 44,000 votes in 2016.
