"Look, everybody's entitled to be an idiot," Biden said regarding the heckler.
"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 added regarding the heckler.

The speech continued with Biden's angry rhetoric toward Trump voters in sharp contrast to the promises the president made to unify the nation. The ongoing attacks against conservatives show a leader angry against half the nation's voters when his party needs every vote possible during the upcoming midterm elections.
The heckler may have interrupted Biden's speech, but he was not destroying democracy. Democracy is what gives Americans the freedom to speak out, regardless of a person's view, rather than being forced to accept a single view.
