President Biden delivered a surprisingly divisive speech Thursday night outside Independence Hall in Philadelphia, PA —Biden bashed MAGA Republicans, calling them a threat to the country.
The GOP backlash on twitter was swift.
“Joe Biden’s hate-filled and menacing rhetoric tonight was disgraceful. His behavior is increasingly erratic. And his threats against half the country – his fellow citizens – are dangerous,” said Senator Josh Hawley (R-MO).
“Biden is talking about “our better angels” in a speech that calls half the country a threat to America. Just incredible,” tweeted Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR).
“They chose this imagery. It’s unreal. Joe Biden is Hitler. #NaziJoe has to go,” tweeted Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA).
“Instead of trying to bring our country together to solve the MANY problems he has created, President Biden has chosen to divide, demean, and disparage his fellow Americans—simply because they disagree with his policies. Mr. President: you owe millions of Americans an apology,” Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (D-CA) said.
“Right now in America families can’t afford food or gas and are living in fear as rampant violent crime takes over their cities. What’s President Biden doing? Calling half the country fascists because they won’t go along with his insane agenda. Shameful,” said House Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA)
