Pro-Palestine Protesters Picket Biden Fundraiser

Hundreds of protesters gathered in New York City against President Joe Biden Thursday, demonstrating in favor of the Palestinian cause. The president was attending a high-profile fundraiser when the protesters chanted a number of offensive slogans.

Biden and former Presidents Barack Obama and Bill Clinton held a fundraiser at Radio City Music Hall in New York City on Thursday. Outside protesters shadowed the event and clashed with police.

Some of the protesters were caught on video mocking police officers while former President Donald Trump was attending the wake of slain NYPD officer Jonathan Diller.

Protesters were heard chanting slogans, including one calling Biden mentally unwell with another saying “Genocide Joe, it is time to go.”

While Obama spoke at the event, protesters interrupted him.

“You can’t just talk and not listen,” Obama said.

Other footage from the event captured protesters calling for the downfall of the United States and saying that Hamas was coming.

The president was expected to bring in about $25 million from the fundraiser, which was attended by a number of celebrities and offered a chance to be photographed with him and the former presidents for $100,000.

The fundraiser came in sharp contrast to Trump’s solemn visit to the memorial for the officer killed in a traffic stop. Trump called the death a “sad, sad event; such a horrible thing, and it’s happening all too often; and we’re just not going to let it happen.”

The former president called police “the greatest people we have.”

“I just visited with a very beautiful wife that now doesn’t have her husband. Stephanie was just incredible. Their child, brand new, beautiful baby sitting there–innocent as can be and doesn’t know how his life has been changed,” Trump said.

The former president was greeted by Diller’s family, as well as local leaders and police officers.
Speaking after the wake, the former president called for “law and order.” The suspect in the case was arrested more than 20 times.
