Former Vice President Joe Biden had some choice words for a Michigan auto worker at a campaign stop on Tuesday.

The presidential candidate was visiting the Detroit plant where the Fiat Chrysler is produced when worker Jerry Wayne decided to ask Biden how he planned to help union workers. But he also asked him about his position on the Second Amendment.

“I also asked him how he wanted to get the vote of the working man when a lot of us wield arms,” Wayne said in an interview on Wednesday that was reported on in USA Today. “We bear arms and we like to do that.”

Video of the exchange shows Wayne accusing Biden of “actively trying to end our Second Amendment right” and “take away our guns.”

Biden, whose platform includes extensive plans to tighten gun restrictions, didn’t take very kindly to Wayne’s criticism. “You’re full of shit,” he told Wayne. “I support the Second Amendment.”

Wayne pressed the issue, however, especially regarding Biden’s support for banning semi-automatic rifles, one type of which Biden mistakenly referred to as an “AR-14” (the AR-15 is a common type of rifle). Biden, visibly angry, told Wayne not to act like “such a horse’s ass.”

Biden “went off the deep end,” Wayne said of the exchange.

In spite of Biden’s harsh reaction, Wayne said he didn’t feel insulted by the former Vice President. He felt the real problem was Biden’s lack of a genuine answer. “He wanted to listen to my question and I don’t think that he was ready for it,” Wayne said.

“It was a little bit disturbing to see that a politician wants to take away my right to defend myself,” Wayne continued. “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.”

Wayne said that it had been an “absolute privilege and an honor to be the voice of Americans” regarding the Second Amendment. “This is a right that we need to protect with our heart and soul.”

  1. Joe Biden does not even know what he says, he continues to not remember where is or what he says or know where he is or who he is talking to. Joe’s time is up as a politician and needs to go to a rest home and relax. It is hard to believe that some people want to put this burnt out in office.

  2. Just keep throwing insults and Trump will stomp all over you on election day !! TRUMP. 2020 !!!! Don’t want my comment ok forget it .

  6. Yeah I saw it on video. so the real question is does America want Quid Pro Quo Joe Biden (It was a personal Quid Pro Quo by Joe Biden on video) a proven MADMAN as president? A MADMAN who thinks pushups salves something! ( he also asked the same man to do some pushups) He does PROVE himself as the MADMAN he IS! all the time. his son knows nothing about the oil industry YET the UK pays him millions of dollars, Hunter Biden MUST be investigated! also Joe should be investigated all his criminal activity he has done. vote for Donald J Trump 2020!

  7. If Mr. Biden’s family had any regard for him they would remove him from this campaign and get him some medical help. It is blatantly obvious that he is having mental problems…I saw the same type of behavior in my Mother who had Alzheimer’s. It is a horrifying disease and is bad for patient and family.

  8. Wayne, is correct that we should Protect Right to Bear Arms… We hear everyday that someone was carJack or someone kicks in your front door with out fear, because they think no one can stop them.
