Arkansas Republican Sen. Tom Cotton blasted President Joe Biden’s remark that Kyle Rittenhouse is a “white supremacist” in a Twitter post last year.
Cotton shared the comments during a “Fox & Friends” interview Thursday morning.
“I want to focus on what Joe Biden said last year, which is calling this young man a white supremacist based on a few seconds of video,” Cotton said.
“As I often say, when there’s a shooting like this, you shouldn’t jump to conclusions based on some video circulating on social media. You should allow all the facts to be collected and make a reasoned judgment,” he added.
Cotton also commented that Biden’s critical response has become the “go-to” move of Democrats.
“When Joe Biden called Kyle Rittenhouse a white supremacist last year, it really was just the go-to move of the Democrats,” Cotton said.
“They do this all the time when they’re losing an argument on the merits,” the senator argued.
“They don’t like parents going to school boards to protest what their kids are learning or school closures, so those parents are called racists,” he said.
Cotton noted the name-calling is a losing approach and said it’s “not a sign” of a strong party.
“They are constantly losing arguments with the American people, and then they just revert to name-calling towards their opponents. It’s not a sign of a party that is strong or healthy,” he said.
