Joe the plumber (Samuel Joseph Wurzelbacher) became briefly famous after encountering then-candidate Barack Obama during the 2008 election campaign, while Obama was out talking to voters in a working-class Toledo, Ohio neighborhood. Joe criticized Obama's proposed tax plan so the liberal media went after him.

Joe is like David Hogg and Occupy, relics of the media-poltiical fad past; Greta Thunberg will be forgotten very soon also and join the ranks of Joe...
