Joe Biden booed & heckled on streets of Nantucket by people protesting the war in Gaza

‘Shame On You’

  • Protesters were kept about six blocks from President Biden on Saturday
  • Biden’s motorcade even took a different route into town – one that avoided driving past a group of protestors gathered on the side of the road
  • Biden family’s Nantucket stay has been repeatedly interrupted by protesters 


Joe Biden was booed and heckled on the streets of Nantucket on Saturday even as people protesting the war in Gaza were kept far away from the president.

The president’s motorcade even took a different route from where he is staying – David Rubenstein’s $34 million home on Abrams Point – into town to avoid driving past protestors gathered on the side of the road with signs saying ‘Free Palestine.’

A group of about 40 people calling for an end to the fighting in Palestine were kept down one end of Main Street in downtown Nantucket – about six blocks from where Biden was shopping with wife Jill Biden, son Hunter Biden and the first couple’s grandchildren.

The protesters held a large banner reading ‘Ceasefire 4Eva’ and chanted: ‘The pause is just a pause. A permanent ceasefire. Let Gaza live.’

Additionally, people in the crowds that lined the sidewalks shouted ‘shame on you’ and ‘armchair murder’ as the president walked by while others booed. But there were also plenty of cheers mixed in with the cat calls as Biden supporters tried to drown out his critics.

Biden has become a target of criticism over his steadfast support of Israel, whose military has killed tens of thousands of Palestinian civilians in their effort to root out Hamas fighters responsible for the October 7 attack.

The president has spent much of this Thanksgiving holiday dealing with war between Israel and Hamas.

He addressed the first round of hostages released on Friday and spoke about it again on Saturday, saying ‘hopefully we’ll see something soon’ after zero Americans were released by Hamas.

But he also has spent a lot of time shopping with his family. He visited several shops in downtown Nantucket on Saturday, including the Murray Toggery, Mitchell’s Book Corner, The Black Dog, and Nantucket Pharmacy, where he came holding what looked like a smoothie.

He ended his shopping trip by going to 5 pm mass at St. Mary, Our Lady of the Isle Catholic Church.

First lady Jill Biden was with him for the shopping portion of the day. She had her own fans – one group of girls yelled at her ‘You slay Jill.’

It was her second round of shopping for the day. Earlier she was out with granddaughters Finnegan and Naomi.

Dressed in black workout gear the first lady stopped in Murray’s Beverage Store, the local liquor store, and then made her way across the street to the Ralph Lauren store. She and the two girls were trailed by SUVs and a large contingent of Secret Service agents.

Shopping is a traditional outing for the Biden family when they are on the small island off the coast of Massachusetts. 

On Friday, the family had their traditional lunch at Brotherhood of the Thieves, a local pub, before walking the streets for some Christmas shopping and then attending the annual lighting of the town’s Christmas Tree.
