Biden slams when Nantucket business owner asks him to name his favorite chowder

| Top stories | News Today

As America feasted on Thanksgiving, President Biden traveled to New England for the holidays and was asked to choose a side for the clam chowder: New England or Manhattan.

“Do you prefer Manhattan or New England clam chowder?” Sean Dew, co-founder of Nantucket’s TownPool store, asked Biden on Saturday.

“I don’t like it either,” Biden replied.

“Oh my God,” Dew replies before saying, “Okay, good answer.”

Biden then said, “No, no, no, New England clam chowder.”

New England and Manhattan have long argued over who is the king of clam chowder, with New England’s version offering a creamy soup and Manhattan’s one made with tomato.

TownPool told Fox News on Sunday that Dew often asked people in the store what their favorite chowder was, describing it as a “running joke.” The store’s Instagram page shows celebrities and public figures such as James Carville, Amanda Knox, John Hope Bryant, John Kerry and others also answering the same question from Dew.

The store also posted the video of the light swap to Instagram, along with various products it sells on behalf of Biden.

“We’ve received a lot of hate for posting the video and the product we’re selling,” TownPool told Fox News in an email. “Ironically, the majority of our staff did NOT vote for the president, but were honored by his visit.”

The store added that it had already faced a “double irony” when it was “beaten by the left for selling our NanTexas shirts”.

TownPool also stated that Biden was “the first sitting president to stay overnight in Nantucket since President Grant in 1874”.
