Michigan Trump supporters chant 'F**k Joe Biden' to his motorcade, Rep 'embarrassed'
The 46th POTUS clearly saw the pointed messaging from the window of his motorcade along M-59 in Livingston County
President Joe Biden was given a rude awakening by supporters of his predecessor, President Donald J Trump, as he arrived in Howell, Michigan on Tuesday, October 5.
The 46th POTUS clearly saw the pointed messaging by his dissidents from the window of his motorcade on his way to an event hosted by Gov Gretchen Whitmer. Hundreds of "F*** Biden" flags and signs were carried by a crowd of protesters gathered along M-59 in Livingston County, which is said to be a deeply conservative part of Michigan. Some crowd members were seen giving the middle finger to the presidential motorcade, while one sign held by a woman protester read, "We the people are pissed off."
Democrat Rep Elissa Slotkin told Michigan Live she was "embarrassed" by the profanity leveled against the president as she sat next to him. She said Biden pointed out the signs as they passed by the independently organized MAGA rally. “He said, ‘aren’t we next to a school?’” Slotkin recalled. “I pointed out the school to him and, he said ‘I guess I’m still surprised when people, even if they don’t like me, are willing to be that profane around children.’”

According to the outlet, Voyager Elementary School is situated along M-59 and Northwest Elementary School is a block away from the highway. “It’s just a sad moment when someone can stand blocks from a school with a sign using that kind of profanity,” Slotkin added.
The highway leading to the International Union of Operating Engineers Construction Career Center, where Biden was set to speak, was lined by pro-Trump demonstrators, with several messages peppering the roadway, including a large sign declaring "Trump Won." It's worth noting that Biden lost Livingston County by 23 percentage points in 2020 but managed to win Michigan by 154,000 votes.

The rally, organized by the Livingston County Republican Party and Moms for Liberty, was a hit on social media. Michigan Republican Party co-chair Meshawn Maddock was also billed to attend the event.
"Love to see it! make this normal until he steps down due to dementia," one tweeted. "Anyone who believes that 81 million people voted for him needs to go jump in the river and not come back out," a comment read.
"In Michigan were thousands of president Trump supporters with 'F*** Joe Biden' signs and flags... the kids on the school bus were yelling 'F*** Joe Biden'...Biden is hated in Michigan and he should know better not to darken that state with his stinking presence!" another added.

Biden visited the state Tuesday in order to promote his spending agenda, including a $1.2 trillion infrastructure bill and a $3.5 trillion package to expand social programs. "This is a blue-collar blueprint for how we restore America's pride," he told the crowd. "Other countries are speeding up, and we're falling behind. We have to speed up the pace." He added, "The challenge of the day is one of economic competition. Let's learn from that history. Not because it was perfect — because Americans then did what we need to do now: invest in ourselves to show the world that American democracy works."
