The autoworker who was told he was “full of sh*t” and threatened by former Vice President and Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden during a campaign stop in Detroit on Tuesday spoke about the altercation on Fox & Friends Wednesday morning. The autoworker said that he believed Biden went “off the deep end,” and that he was shocked at Biden’s aggressive behavior.
The autoworker, Jerry Wayne, said, “I also asked him how he wanted to get the vote of the working man when a lot of us, we wield arms. We bear arms and we like to do that. And if he wants to give us work and take our guns, I don’t see how he is going to get the same vote.”
He also said he believes he had been respectful to Biden, “I thought I was pretty articulate and respectful. I didn’t try to raise any — any feathers. And he kind of just went off the deep end. I saw that he was digging a hole. And I just kind of let him talk for a while to dig the hole.”
Wayne added that gun control legislation is not the solution, saying, “He doesn’t need to touch anybody’s weapon at all. What we need to do is, we need to concentrate on teaching people how to respect firearms and how to use them, not take them away.”
The incident occurred on Tuesday, when Wayne accused Biden of “actively trying to end our Second Amendment rights.”
“You’re full of sh**!” Biden responded, while pointing his finger in the man’s face. “I support the 2nd Amendment. The 2nd Amendment, just like right now if you yell fire, that’s not free speech. I have a shotgun…my sons hunt. I’m not taking your guns away at all.”
“This is not okay,” Wayne replied, trying to create a buffer between the finger and his face. Biden then called worker a “horse’s a**,” told him that “you don’t need an AR-14” and then threatened to “slap” the man “in the face.”
