During his appearance at a “Poor People’s Campaign” event last June, Joe Biden got in the face of MSNBC host Joy Reid. Reid asked the Democrat presidential frontrunner how he would take the fight to the Republican-led Senate? In an odd moment, Biden slow-walked up to Joy, as he stared at her, saying, “Joy, I know you’re one of the ones that thinks it’s naive to think we have to work together.” Biden continued, as he got directly in the face of the MSNBC host, telling her, “The fact of the matter is, if you can’t get a consensus, nothing happens except the abuse of power by the executive, zero.”
Biden got directly in the face of the MSNBC host and told her that violence was likely the answer. “There are certain things that just take a brass knuckle fight,” Biden said as he looked at the minister on the stage. “Let’s start a real physical revolution,” he told the crowd.

During the campaign event, Biden also admitted the first thing he would do if elected is to raise taxes on Americans, saying: “The first thing I would do, if president, is repeal the Trump tax cuts, which would raise taxes on the 82% of middle-class Americans that saw a tax cut in 2018 with an average savings of $1,260, and the 90% of workers that saw an increase in pay.”
“There is plenty, plenty of money to go around,” Biden said.
