Reps for President Trump’s reelection campaign and GOP pundits wasted no time ginning up outrage Friday after Joe Biden attacked a group of Trump supporters honking their car horns in protest during his Minnesota rally as “ugly folks.”
“Joe Biden’s staffer who tweets for him tweets about “decency” all the time. Yet when Biden speaks, he regularly insults Trump supporters,” said GOP Rapid Response Director Steve Guest in a tweet. “Last week, Biden called Trump supporters “chumps,” now, he calls us “ugly folks.” Spare us the moral preening, Joe!”
Trump campaign director of press communications Erin Perrine added that “I’d rather be Team Ugly Folks than an anti-vaxxer” — a likely reference to many Democrats public suspicions of a potential COVID-19 vaccine that emerges during the Trump administration.
“Deplorables. Irredeemables. Ugly folks. Remember, Joe’s The “decency” candidate,” added Fox News primetime host Laura Ingraham.
The “ugly folks” video was also widely disseminated by Team Trump on Twitter with appearances on the official accounts for Trump War Room and RNC Research.
“These guys are not very polite, but they’re like Trump,” Biden said of the Trump diehards. “But look, they’re going to be OK. We’re going to take care of them as well. We need to come together. We need to fight for all these folks.”
With the election now just days away, Biden has been consistently leading in both swing state and national polls. Trump trails the former vice president in Minnesota by 4.7 points, according to a polling average from RealClearPolitics.
