Despite his near-constant campaign promises to be a “healer” to our nation, Joe Biden’s presidency has been filled with insulting rhetoric aimed directly at the Republican Party and the MAGA Movement.
Biden’s latest turgid and tawdry narrative, in which he suggests that GOP is turning authoritarian, was so egregious that members of the Republican Party are now demanding an apology.
Biden, speaking at a Democratic fundraiser in Maryland last week, called out “extreme” Republicans that ascribe to what he called the “ultra MAGA agenda,” referring to former President Donald Trump’s “Make America Great Again” mantra.
“What we’re seeing now, is either the beginning or the death knell of an extreme MAGA philosophy,” Biden said. “It’s not just Trump, it’s the entire philosophy that underpins the ― I’m going to say something, it’s like semi-fascism.”
The comment had some fuming.
New Hampshire Gov. Chris Sununu (R) on Sunday demanded an apology from Joe Biden after the president criticized a wing of the Republican Party for embracing authoritarianism.
“The fact that the president would go out and just insult half of America [and] effectively call half of America semi-fascist,” Sununu said on CNN’s “State of the Union.” “He’s trying to stir up controversy. He’s trying to stir up this anti-Republican sentiment right before the election. It’s horribly inappropriate.”
Just hours after the statement was made by President Biden, “Civil War” was trending on Twitter, demonstrating just how fragile our nation is at this moment, and how careful we must be to keep our union standing.
