Biden Campaign Event At Radio City Is Disrupted By Protesters

( – With the election just over seven months away, President Joe Biden has been hitting the campaign trail to drum up support. In some areas, however, he’s facing backlash, and protestors are making their voices heard on a number of issues. That’s what recently happened when he visited New York City, along with former Presidents Barack Obama and Bill Clinton.

On the evening of Thursday, March 30, Biden visited Radio City Music Hall for a fundraiser. Hundreds of pro-Palestine protestors gathered outside the event and chanted about the injustices happening in the Middle East and called the president “Genocide Joe.”

Some made it inside the 5,000-seat event, too, where they made their displeasure known for everyone in attendance to hear. Biden seemed nonplussed with the disruptions, even encouraging one to continue, saying, “That’s alright, let them go. There are too many innocent victims, Israeli and Palestinian.”

Obama, however, wasn’t afraid to engage the demonstrators, telling the group, “You can’t just talk and not listen. That’s what the other side does,” referencing the Republicans. He also defended Biden, saying “he has moral conviction and clarity” and “is willing to acknowledge that the world is complicated” while hearing all sides of the debate to try and “find common ground.”

The war in Gaza is likely to be a strong contending point in this presidential race, particularly among younger voters and Democrats alike. In fact, a recent poll shows that the 18–29 age bracket has turned more in favor of former President Donald Trump, the presumptive Republican nominee, in recent months. They’re very unhappy with the way the White House has handled the conflict from the start.

It wasn’t all bad news for Biden, though. His campaign managed to raise a stunning $26 million for that one single event, which will add to his coffers and help him navigate what’s likely to be a tense campaign.
