«Biden, go away!»: the president was booed by Americans affected by Hurricane Ida

Residents of the city of Manville, New Jersey, booed President Joe Biden. The head of the United States visited the areas most affected by Hurricane Ida. This was reported by the New York Post.

During his visit to New York and New Jersey, the American president encountered angry locals. A group of protesters positioned themselves at a section of the route in the city of Manville. They held placards that read, "Fuck you, Biden!” and “Biden, go back to the basement!” and pointed the middle finger. One of the locals shouted “Resign, you tyrant!” as the president inspected the destroyed house. According to reporters, Biden did not react to the taunts. The locals' main complaint is that the politicians did not do enough to warn them of the impending disaster.

“There was absolutely no warning. I didn't expect the water from my own sewer system to kill me,” said one resident, Danette Rivera.

In Queens, Biden greeted local residents who also came out to meet him.

“Climate change is an existential threat to our lives, to our economy. It's not going to get any better. We can't turn it around, but we can prevent it from getting worse,” he said.

Biden visited areas of Louisiana last Friday where the hurricane also destroyed many homes and thousands of people are still without power.
