Biden Backtracks, Says MAGA is NOT a Threat?

Well, which is it Joe?

On Thursday night, you tell the world that the “MAGA Republicans” are a threat to democracy.  That they “live in a shadow of lies”, which I’m still not sure even makes sense.  You denigrated a wide, wide swath of this nation, and you got burned for it.

The left and the right both viewed the speech as divisive and inflammatory…and don’t even get us started on the exploitation and politicization of the military.

And so, after just a few hours of having to deal with the consequences of your message, you backtracked.

President Biden on Friday sought to clarify the withering criticism he leveled against “MAGA Republicans” and former President Trump in a prime-time speech Thursday. Over and over in his speech, Biden referred to them as “extremists,” which prompted Steve Doocy of Fox News to ask him Friday if he considered all Trump supporters to be a threat to the country. The answer was no:

Biden: “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.”

Elaborating: “People voted for Donald Trump and support him now, they weren’t voting for attacking the Capitol,” he said, per the Hill. “They weren’t voting for overruling an election. They were voting for a philosophy he put forward.”

The only thing worse than what you said is telling us later that you didn’t mean it.  That it was all for show.  It’s a credibility killer, and for a President already struggling in the polls, it could be a campaign killer too.
