A man is said to have given US President Joe Biden his finger during a Thanksgiving Day stop.

President Joe Biden’s approval rating has been epic low, but at a Thanksgiving Day stop at a New England Coast Guard station, they suddenly reached single digits.

The New York Postreported that a man from Nantucket presented Biden’s car procession with his middle finger on Thursday when the unpopular commander made the holiday stop during his stay at a billionaire’s island facility.

Biden’s approval rating collapses in the midst of the highest inflation in 31 years, which has pushed up the cost of everything from turkey dinners to gas, and he has been increasingly greeted with vulgar gestures and rhymes even when visiting deep blue states.

White House Pool Reporter Zolan Kanno-Youngs wrote that it was a general friendly welcome when Biden’s car procession made the visit, but that reporters “saw a gentleman standing on his porch and pointing the president’s car procession as we approached the Coast Guard station.”

Other spectators thumbed up and applauded. “One person appeared [be] wearing a dinosaur costume. A couple of people wore turkey hats “, according to a pool report.

Biden and first lady Jill exchanged treats with sailors at the station before returning to their vacation home, which is owned by billionaire David Rubenstein.

The president gave the Coast Guard members “challenge coins” that some soldiers collect to celebrate their service.

“I’m not kidding when I say I’m grateful for these guys – I’m grateful for them, and everyone, I mean it from the bottom of my heart,” the president said of Coast Guard members when asked what he is. thankful for.

“I’ve seen them in the South China Sea, I’ve seen them in Afghanistan, Iraq. I’ve seen them in South America … wherever they are. People wonder what America is? [inaudible] Look and see them. These are the ones they see. They do not see us here. They see them. It makes me proud. ”

Jill Biden told the group that the first family planned to attend Massachusetts Island’s Christmas tree lighting ceremony on Friday.

This year, inflation has driven the cost of the classic Thanksgiving dinner with turkey and sides up 14 percent, according to the American Farm Bureau Federation.

The US Department of Agriculture said last week that the cost of Thanksgiving foods such as turkey, sweet potatoes, green beans, milk and potatoes only increased by 5 percent on average. It is unclear why the figure was lower than the private sector estimate.

Biden has received an ugly welcome during other recent trips to the highly democratic northeastern part of the country.

In September, North Jersey residents hacked Biden and also gave his cortege long fingers. “Resign, you tyrant!” shouted a man when Biden toured in a storm-damaged neighborhood.

And last month, Biden told a child at a playground in Connecticut that “I like children better than people” – when a crowd nearby shouted “F-k Joe Biden!”

Former President Trump also regularly drove past protesters. In 2007, a DC resident “remembered” a memorable Trump car procession as he made a trip up Connecticut Avenue from the White House.
