After 2020 Democratic front-runner Joe Biden got into a spat with Michigan construction worker Jerry Wayne, MSNBC manipulated the footage of Biden, omitting his curse words and threats.
In the original footage, Biden responded to Wayne’s question by saying, “You’re full of sh-t.” He proceeded to shush his female staffer who attempted to mitigate the tense interaction. The more Biden spoke, the more enraged he appeared.
“I support the Second Amendment,” Biden said, going on to say he aims to take away only “AR-14s,” while pointing his finger in Wayne’s face.

MSNBC selectively edited the interaction without Biden yelling, cursing, or threatening the man. Instead, the package shows the cut of Biden talking about owning guns and his sons hunting.
“I have a shotgun, I have a 20-gauge, my sons hunt. Guess what?” Biden said. “I’m not taking your guns away at all.”
MSNBC conveniently edited out the most heated and newsworthy portion of the debacle, which was Joe Biden losing his temper to a voter who asked a simple question about the Second Amendment.
“I thought I was pretty articulate and respectful. I didn’t try to raise any feathers,” Wayne said on Fox News’ “Fox and Friends.” “He kind of just went off the deep end.”
