The war of words between the right and left sides of the aisle is heating up this week, as the fallout from President Joe Biden’s Thursday night speech continues to pile up.
During that prime time address, Biden had no qualms about trashing the supporters of Donald Trump, suggesting that they were a threat to our democracy…and just days after suggesting that they were “semi-fascist”.
The inflammatory message came at a dire time in American history, where our fragile unity seems to be cracking and crumbling, leading many to suggest that the tone of the speech was going to get someone hurt.
The narrative was so nasty, in fact, that Donald Trump himself responded by declaring Joe Biden an “enemy of the state”.
At his first rally since the FBI’s raid on Mar-a-Lago, Donald Trump took aim at President Joe Biden and the Democrat’s recent warnings about “MAGA Republicans.”
Speaking to supporters in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania on Saturday, the former president addressed Biden’s primetime speech by deeming it the “most vicious, hateful, and divisive speech ever delivered by a [U.S.] president.”
Trump claimed Biden was “vilifying 75 million citizens, plus another probably 75 to 150 [million], if we want to be accurate about it, as threats to democracy and as enemies of the state.”
“You’re all enemies of the state,” he told the crowd to boos against Biden. “He’s an enemy of the state if you want to know the truth. The enemy of the state is him and the group that control him, which is circling around him. ‘Do this, do that, Joe.’”
The former President and presumptive 2024 GOP nominee then took a swipe at the optics of the bizarre and tawdry appearance.
Trump railed against the speech further, saying it was nothing but “hatred and anger” from the president. He also noted the red background for the speech, which numerous critics have mocked and criticized.
“How’d you like the red lighting behind him like the devil?” Trump asked the crowd.
Donald Trump appears likely to run for President again in 2024, setting up a possible rematch between he and Biden that could take this hyperbolic battle to some unforeseen levels.
