Biden Tries To Turn The Tables On MAGA Movement After Hateful, Divisive Speech

( Last week during a speech at Independence Hall in Philadelphia, President Biden gave an ominous speech that he reportedly seemed to try to walk back after fierce backlash over his comments that half of the country were a threat to democracy. Biden must have forgotten his comments because he seemed to blame the media for the comments that he himself made.

“Equality and Democracy are under assault. We do ourselves no favor to pretend otherwise,” Biden said while in front of a red ominous backdrop. “Donald Trump and the MAGA Republicans represent an extremism that threatens the very foundations of our Republic.”

A day after Biden’s divisive speech, Fox News reporter Peter Doocy asked the president whether he thought all Trump supporters were a threat, to which Biden answered denying that he ever suggested as much.

“You keep trying to make that case. I don’t consider any Trump supporters a threat to the country,” Biden said. “I do think anyone who calls for the use of violence, refuses to acknowledge an election…changing the way you count votes, that is a threat to democracy.”

During his speech, Biden did make a distinction between some Republicans versus “MAGA Republicans,” but said that “there is no question that the Republican Party today is dominated, driven, and intimidated by Donald Trump and the MAGA Republicans, and that is a threat to this country.”

Despite denying that he ever made this statement—which is likely he simply forgot given the fact that he is nearly 80 years old and forgets just about everything else—Biden reiterated the same sentiment while giving a rally during Labor Day in Milwaukee. After a protestor heckled the president, Biden called him an “idiot,” and then immediately said that “Look, extreme MAGA Republicans don’t just threaten our personal rights and our economic security, they embrace political violence.”
