On September 28, 2023 Biden was speaking in Arizona to honor former Senator John McCain.

During the speech, Biden was heckled by activists, and the President seemingly had trouble concentrating.

At one point, an audience member stands up and yells, “When will you stand against corruption Mr. President?”

They were booed by the audience and another member yelled, “Sit down!”

However, the audience member was picked up by a microphone demanding the President declare an emergency.

“Why you have yet to declare a climate emergency? Why have you yet to declare a climate emergency? Hundred of Arizonians have died!” The heckler said.

Below is a partial transcript from the White House Press Office:

AUDIENCE MEMBERS: Sit down!

AUDIENCE MEMBER: We need your leadership, Mr. President.

THE PRESIDENT: Well, I tell you what, if you shush up, I’ll meet with you immediately after this. Okay?
