Joe Biden Goes Toe-To-Toe With Factory Worker Who Accused Him Of Stripping Away Gun Rights: 'You're Full Of S**t'

The former vice president cursed at another man while defending his views on gun rights.

A video of leading 2020 presidential candidate Joe Biden circulated on social media on Tuesday thanks to some spicy words he used while defending his views, Politico reported.

The former vice president was in Detroit, Michigan, touring a factory with reporters when he was stopped by a construction worker accusing him of trying to "diminish our Second Amendment right and take away our guns."

As one of Biden's aides tried to move him along, he shushed her, telling the factory worker, “You’re full of s**t.”

"I support the Second Amendment. Just like right now if you yell ‘fire,’ that’s not free speech,” Biden said, adding that he owns a number of guns and his sons are avid hunters.

"I'm not taking your gun away — at all. You need 100 rounds?” he said.

The worker responded that he saw a video where Biden and former presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke spoke about passing gun control legislation during a campaign stop. 

Biden continued to use harsh language with the man during the back-and-forth, telling him, “Don’t be such a horse’s a*s.”

“Here’s the deal. Are you able to own a machine gun?” Biden asked the man, adding that legislators simply want to ban AR-15s in the same way. 

The man went back at Biden again, saying most people are killed with handguns and arguing that a ban on AR-15s was unnecessary. By that point, Biden's campaign aides managed to pull him away, and the interaction ended. 

But the video was shared profusely by people on both sides of the debate. President Donald Trump and the National Rifle Association shared the video multiple times to criticize Biden while others on the left criticized him for using foul language with a potential supporter, according to CNN.

Some people praised Biden for his response to the factory worker. 

Good for Joe. 

For decades the @NRA has convinced politicians they had to cower from the issue of gun safety, despite 40,000 gun deaths every year in America.

Despite the criticism, Biden's team considered the incident positive, telling reporters that it was an example of Biden's willingness to take on critics and address tough issues.  

Some even commented on the funny reactions of other workers in the video.

Despite the fraught interaction, Biden managed to handily win primaries in Idaho, Michigan, Mississippi and Missouri on Tuesday over his two remaining Democratic opponents, Bernie Sanders and Tulsi Gabbard.

Biden's win in Michigan has cemented his status as the frontrunner, and he continues to rack up endorsements from Black leaders across the country. The former vice president now leads the race with 837 delegates to Sanders' 689, needing a total of 1,991 to win the nomination.
