Biden calls MAGA Republicans “Trumpies” and calls Heckler an “idiot” in Labor Day speech in Wisconsin

President Joe Biden introduced a new moniker for MAGA Republicans during a lively speech on Labor Day, which also drew on comments suggesting Donald Trump’s supporters believe in “semi-fascism.”

During his speech in Wisconsin on Monday, the president denounced the former president’s supporters as “Trumpies” and claimed politicians from the GOP’s “far right” were “coming for your Social Security” and destroying workers’ pensions.

At one point, Biden was interrupted by a heckler — despite telling Secret Service to “let him go.”

“Everyone has the right to be an idiot,” the President said to a smattering of laughter.

And while he made it clear early on that “not every Republican is a MAGA Republican,” he later painted the critic and his ilk as working to “destroy democracy.”

“The biggest contrast with the MAGA Republicans, the far right … the Trumpies … is that these MAGA Republicans in Congress are also coming for your Social Security,” Biden said.

Later, at a second event in Pittsburgh, Biden ripped into MAGA again, saying of Trump, “It’s clear where he wants to look. It’s clear which way the new MAGA Republicans are going, calling it “very extreme.”

“You can’t call yourself a democracy if you don’t count the votes that people have rightfully cast,” Biden said.

He also saluted Pennsylvania Senate nominee John Fetterman – after Senate nominee Mandela Barnes was absent from his event in Milwaukee.

“If I have to be in a foxhole, I want John Fetterman with me. Tell you what, I want John in there with me. I mean that sincerely,” Biden said of Fetterman dating Trump-backed candidate Dr. Mehmet Oz was in a campaign brawl.

The 79-year-old leader has escalated his rhetoric against the former president and his allies in recent days since making a fiery debut on the Midterm Campaign Trail in Bethesda, Maryland, late last month.

At a private event with local donors, the President likened MAGA Republican beliefs to semi-fascism and received immediate backlash from all right-wing factions.

President Joe Biden made the first of two Labor Day stops in Wisconsin Monday, where he touted his victories for the unions and cracked down on the “MAGA Republicans.”

Referring back to those comments on Monday, he said: “I want to be very clear in front. Not every Republican is a MAGA Republican. Not every Republican subscribes to this extreme ideology. I know this because I’ve had the privilege of working with mainstream Republicans my entire career.

“But the extreme MAGA Republicans in Congress have chosen to walk backwards — full of anger, violence, hatred and division,” the president said. “But together we can and must choose a different path: forward.”

However, Biden later turned the heat back up when the heckler who interrupted his speech was pulled out by security.

“Democrats, Republicans and mainstream – Republicans and independents, we must be stronger and more determined and more determined to save American democracy,” the president pleaded over the excitement.

“And the MAGA Republicans — that guy out there — are destroying democracy. Because democracy is at stake.”

The president was passionate as he repeatedly drummed up Republican lawmakers — including Sen. Ron Johnson of Wisconsin — for voting against his agenda, including the $1.2 trillion bipartisan infrastructure deal.

He also attacked the GOP for opposing the Butch Lewis Act, a provision in America’s COVID-19 pandemic-era bailout plan that protected the pensions of some 10 million union workers.

Biden claimed that Republicans who supported the bill voted against it over re-election concerns.

“Not a single Republican congressman voted to protect your pensions — not one. And by the way, I know a lot of people wanted to vote for it. They’re scared of losing the primary in this new Republican Party,” he said.

Biden, touting the recently passed Inflation Reduction Act — a climate and healthcare spending bill that passed without Republican support — thundered, “We beat pharma this year, and it mattered.” We finally beat Pharma.’

Notably absent from the event was Democrat Mandela Barnes, Lieutenant Governor of Wisconsin, who is running in November to unseat GOP Senator Johnson.

Biden began his remarks by saying that Barnes “couldn’t be here” but “will be your next United States Senator.”

Barnes’ campaign told DailyMail.com that the Democratic official attended other Labor Day events in his state.

“The lieutenant governor appreciates that the president came to Wisconsin to honor the labor movement in our state,” spokeswoman Maddy McDaniel said in an email.

“Mandela attended the Milwaukee Parade and then supported Wisconsin workers at events across the state, including in Racine, where the UAW Local 180 has been on strike for over 100 days.”

It comes as Democrats across the country are experiencing a surge in approval ratings, which is relatively unusual for the party in power during a mid-election year.

Biden’s own job approval rating had recovered in recent weeks, though Democrats in swing states and districts still appear cautious — especially as the president ramps up his anti-Trump rhetoric.

“When I say democracy is at stake, I mean it literally. You cannot say that you support law enforcement and call the people who attacked police on January 6 “patriots.” This was an attack on American democracy,” the president said in Wisconsin – citing Trump’s support for the Capitol riot.
