Joe Biden was heckled at a campaign rally in the D.C. suburb of Rockville, Maryland Thursday evening by a man who yelled, “You stole the election!” Biden commented, “Folks, ignorance knows no boundaries.”
The rally took place at Richard Montgomery High School where Biden was able to fill the school’s gymnasium in the Democrat stronghold. Earlier Biden spoke at a fundraiser in nearby Bethesda, Maryland where he accused President Trump and his supporters of “semi-fascism.”
