Daniel Turner, an energy executive, noted Biden’s hypocrisy in appearing at a UAW strike while pushing job-killing electric vehicles. “I find it ironic that Joe Biden will join the picket line with striking UAW workers when his EV mandates have put workers out of a job,” Turner tweeted.

Indeed, the Washington Free Beacon described Biden as having a “tenuous relationship with the United Auto Workers” over EVs. The president took no pains to mend that relationship when he abandoned picketers after 12 minutes. Apparently, his pressing engagement with leftist billionaires took precedence. Democrat mega-donors Liz Simons and her husband, Mark Heising, hosted Biden at a Tuesday fundraiser in Atherton, California. The Free Beacon described Simons as a “hedge fund heiress” who, along with her husband, has donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to anti-policing and other leftist causes. Meanwhile, according to Newsmax, former President Donald Trump will meet with those same striking auto workers in Detroit on Wednesday. “Donald Trump will speak to blue-collar workers outside Detroit on Wednesday, seeking to capitalize politically on an autoworker strike one day after President Joe Biden joined a picket line to show solidarity with workers and its union,” Newsmax tweeted.

Trump will stay for more than 12 minutes. The man who made a fortune in real estate while employing construction workers will connect with his blue-collar audience in a way that the man who made a fortune as a corrupt career politician never could. Indeed, Biden’s UAW stunt reminds us of his belated appearance in Maui on Aug. 21 — 13 days after the wildfire. “I don’t want him here,” Lahaina resident Jay Awan said in advance of Biden’s visit. “He’s just coming to Maui to look good in front of the cameras.” No doubt many UAW workers — including “that guy” in the photo — felt the same way.
