Just a few constituents following their representative into a large bathroom to air their grievances. What should they have done instead?” it wrote.

Daily Beast editor Molly Jong-Fast dismissed criticism in opposition to the protesters. She shared Biden’s feedback, Jong-Fast tweeted, “This is a good answer that is driving the right nuts.

“Even if you think the bathroom should be off-limits, it’s harder to argue that protesters somehow erred by tracking her down on campus. Call it a learning experience for her.
