[ad_1]

President Joe Biden was briefly interrupted by a climate protester Thursday in Arizona, agreeing to meet with the protester after his speech to discuss climate change if he would “shush up.”

The climate protester were pressuring the president to declare a national emergency on the climate crisis which would unlock sweeping new federal regulations and funds to combat the climate emergency.

“Why have you yet to declare a climate emergency?” the protester yelled, interrupting the president’s remarks about protecting democracy and honoring the late Sen. John McCain at Tempe Center for the Arts. “Hundreds of Arizonans have died.”
