“You finally got out of the basement!” a man could be heard shouting off-screen. “Hey Joe, who paid for those pizzas? Hey Joe, who — Trump would have gave us steak!”
Biden pulled down his mask briefly and shouted, “don’t jump!” but it was unclear whether it was directed at the heckler. (RELATED: Joe Biden Stumbles Trying To Describe Impact Of COVID-19)
A key swing state critical to both campaigns, Pennsylvania went Republican in 2016 for the first time since 1988. In a speech in Pittsburgh Monday, Biden tried to pin the blame for ongoing riots and lawlessness on President Donald Trump, calling the graphic scenes “images from Donald Trump’s America.”
