Biden Clarifies Thursday Remarks on Friday Morning


The stunning spectacle that America witnessed on Thursday night may have been a step too far for Joe Biden, and it appears as though his PR team knows it.

Biden, who was elected while campaigning under the guise of the grandfatherly figure that America needed to reel in the bombastic biz mogul before him, took on a new tone on Thursday; becoming a character the liberal internet has been calling “Dark Brandon”.

The speech was hyperbolic, combative, and named MAGA Republicans and Donald Trump by name.

By Friday morning, however, the tune had suddenly changed.

President Biden on Friday said he does not consider any Donald Trump supporters to be a “threat” to the U.S., though he said the failure to condemn violence for political gains was “inappropriate.”

The president’s comments were in answer to a question from Fox News’ Peter Doocy who asked if Biden considered all Trump supporters to be a threat to the country less than a day after he blasted “MAGA Republicans” in a speech Thursday.

“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.”

But, back in reality…

“As I stand here tonight, equality and democracy are under assault. We do ourselves no favor to pretend otherwise,” he said. “There’s 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.”

And then, about as bluntly as the septuagenarian could muster:

He further tweeted that Trump and “MAGA Republicans” are “a threat to the very soul of this country.”

It seems as though Sleepy Joe is trying to have his cake and eat it too, which is a heck of a thing for a leader to do when his nation stands before him, divided and wracked with tumult.
