'Not a Trump rally': Biden says 'no one's paying attention' to hecklers disrupting Virginia event

President Joe Biden brushed off hecklers on Friday while speaking at a campaign event in Virginia for Terry McAuliffe's bid to return for a second term as governor.

A group of people started making a commotion as the president raved about the Republican Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey, who urged residents of her state to get vaccinated against COVID-19.

"Thank God the governor of Arkansas — excuse me, Alabama...," Biden said before the crowd began interrupting his speech.

"This is not a Trump rally. Let 'em holler. No one's paying attention," Biden shot back.

The president was in Arlington to support the gubernatorial campaign of McAuliffe, who previously served as Virginia's governor from 2014 to 2018. His Republican opponent is Glenn Youngkin, a businessman endorsed by former President Donald Trump.

"Terry and I share a lot in common — I ran against Donald Trump, and so is Terry," Biden said Friday. "And I whipped Donald Trump in Virginia, and so will Terry."
