President Joe Biden, jovially chatting with Fort Myers Beach Mayor Ray Murphy on Wednesday, was caught on a live microphone saying, “No one f–ks with a Biden,” and chuckling as the mayor collegially appeared to agree with him, although the mayor was possibly just being polite.
Biden traveled to the devastated part of Southwest Florida to see first hand the damage caused by Hurricane Ian late last month.
Biden told residents of the area that he empathizes with their plight due to a house fire that destroyed an “awful lot” of his own home some two decades ago.
Speaking to the mayor, he said, “You were raised the same way I was.”
“I was, I was,” Mayor Murphy said.
No one f—s with a Biden,” Biden continued.
“Goddamn right,” Mayor Murphy replied, although it’s hard to know if he understood the president’s comment.
“And you can’t argue with your brothers outside the house,” Biden said.
“That’s exactly right, that’s exactly right,” Murphy said, politely.
