President Biden Draws Tiny Crowd for PA Union Worker Labor Day Speech

President Biden drew an abnormally small crowd of supporters for his Labor Day speech in West Mifflin, Pennsylvania on Monday, reminiscent of the bizarrely tiny groups of supporters he drew to his campaign events during the 2020 presidential election.

Biden spoke at the United Steelworkers event on Labor Day, but it drew very few union members, photos show. The Daily Mail went as far as describing the crowd as “pitifully small” with “dozens” gathered to hear the President of the United States speak. Photos appear to back that assessment up, and according to TribLive, “about 100 attendees took COVID tests” prior to the event:

Further, the event did not just feature Biden, but Democrat Senate hopeful John Fetterman, as well as U.S. Sen. Bob Casey (D-PA) and AFL-CIO President Liz Shuler.

The small crowd generated a good dose of mocking across social media.

“Such a big crowd! Of course these libs won’t really say how many people were there,” one user remarked.

“There are more people that come to my PTA meetings when I (the President) speak! Embarrassing,” another said.

“I’ve seen bigger crowds at a state fair!” one exclaimed, as another noted, “Lucky to have 150 people there. Trump would have had 3000-4000.”

Biden reportedly echoed the sentiments from his dark and angry anti-MAGA speech during his remarks, contending that “democracy is really at stake” in the face of MAGA Republicans.

Similarly, during a Labor Day event in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Biden railed against “extreme MAGA” Republicans, accusing a heckler of “destroying democracy.”

“We have to be stronger and more determined and more committed to saving American democracy than the MAGA Republicans and that guy out that door, are destroying democracy,” he said.

The crowd size in West Mifflin is reminiscent of the extremely small crowds Biden drew as he ran for president in 2020, although he dismissed the criticisms at the time, claiming that he did not want them to “become superspreaders” in the wake of the Chinese coronavirus.
