Former Vice President Joe Biden insulted Trump supporters, calling them “the dregs of society” in a speech at the Human Rights Campaign National Dinner on Saturday night, Sept. 15, at Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C.

“There are a small percentage of the American people – virulent people – some of them the dregs of society – and instead of using the full might of the executive branch to secure justice, dignity, safety for all, the president uses the White House as a literal bully pulpit, callously exerting his power over those who have little or none,” Biden said.

 

Biden began the attack by warning attendees to beware the “forces of intolerance.”

“Despite losing in the courts and in the court of public opinion, these forces of intolerance remain determined to undermine and roll back the progress you all have made. This time, they – not you – have an ally in the White House,” he said, presumably referring to President Donald Trump.

The Human Rights Campaign National Dinner is an annual event held by the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) in support of LGBTQ rights. Other key speakers at the event included HRC President Chad Griffin, former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder and actress Anne Hathaway.
