Donald Trump is scheduled to visit Michigan today, about 24 hours after President Biden stopped by a UAW picket line near Detroit. Trump's planned stop had the president of the UAW saying the former president and current presidential candidate works for the "billionaire class":
From The Hill:
United Auto Workers (UAW) President Shawn Fain took a swipe at former President Trump, saying he serves a “billionaire class,” a day ahead of Trump’s visit to Detroit where he will speak to union workers.
When asked on CNN about the former president’s trip to Detroit, Fain said, “I see no point in meeting with him because I don’t think the man has any bit of care about what our workers stand for, what the working class stands for.”
In a totally unsurprising twist, after the union boss said Trump works for the "billionaire class," here's where Biden went after his brief stop at a UAW picket line:

Isn't that weird!?
Actually, Biden -- aka "Union Joe" -- is sucking up to multiple billionaires during his California stop:

Biden sure doesn't seem to mind the company of those billionaires whom he otherwise likes to accuse of not "paying their fair share."

It's almost as if Biden's short stop to visit the picket line in Michigan was done to make sure taxpayers had to pick up the tab for the subsequent fundraising stops to pass the hat among his billionaire pals while a union chief laughably accused Trump of being the one who's in the pockets of billionaires.
I'd better stop before my irony detector blows up.
