In his ongoing criticism of “MAGA Republicans,” President Joe Biden has even singled out one of them at a rally.
On Labor Day, the president was speaking in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and was once more cautioning against the perils of “MAGA Republicans” when he was distracted by a heckler.
As Secret Service started to remove the man from the gathering, he was yelling, although it was difficult to understand what he was saying.
First, the president tried to pacify his mob of supporters.
“Okay, OK. God is with you. Release him.” The president commanded, “Let him go.”
“Let him go,” he pleaded, “No, No, No, No, No, No, No, No, No, No, No, No, No. Everyone has the right to be an idiot, you know.”
He referred to the heckler as “the person out that door,” adding, “We have to be stronger, more resolute, and more devoted to preserve American democracy than the MAGA Republicans, who are killing democracy.”
“The largest difference between MAGA Republicans, the far right, and Trump supporters. They want to go to Washington, and these MAGA Republicans there are also after your Social Security,” he continued, echoing Democratic talking points from decades past.
It happened a few days after Donald Trump, the previous president, attacked the current president at a rally in Penn.
He was greeted warmly in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, where he held his first rally after the FBI raid on Mar-a-Lago.
But when he addressed the audience, he had a clear objective: to discredit President Biden.
He referred to the president’s address from last week as the “most violent, vile, and divisive speech that has ever been made by a U.S. president.”
If we want to be honest, he claimed that Pres. Biden was “vilifying 75 million Americans, plus another perhaps 75 to 150 million, as hazards to democracy and as enemies of the state.”
He said, “You’re all enemies of the state,” as the audience booed Biden. If you want to know the reality, he is an adversary of the state. He and the organization that controls him, which is around him, are the enemies of the state. Joe, do this and do that.
He noted the mysterious red background that was criticized online before declaring that President Biden’s address was nothing but “hate and wrath.”
How do you like the devilish red glow behind him, he asked.
On his Truth Social platform, former President Trump also dissected President Biden’s address.
“If you examine the language and context of President Biden’s irate and clumsy address from tonight, you will see that he threatened America, and maybe even threatened to use force. He must be crazy or have advanced dementia,” he declared on his Truth Social platform.
“Someone has to patiently and firmly explain to Pres. Joe Biden that the acronym MAGA means: MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!” He stated, “If he does not want to Make America Great Again—and by words, behavior, and thinking, he doesn’t—then he most definitely shouldn’t be representing the United States of America!”
Regarding his address, Biden appeared to say that around half the electorate posed a threat to the country.
