US President Joe Biden is again heckled by far-left protesters calling for a ceasefire in Gaza, this time during a speech at a church in South Carolina where a white supremacist killed nine Black worshipers in 2015.

Unfazed by the interruption, Biden responds, “I understand their passion, and I’ve been quietly working with the Israeli government to get them to reduce and significantly get out of Gaza.”

A man in the crowd then shouts, “You’re a good man”
