Biden: I Can Work With 'Mainstream' Republicans, But Not Trumpers

President Joe Biden attempted to walk back his recent smears of Republicans, saying he was willing to work with “mainstream” members of the GOP while warning “Trumpers” are a threat to democracy.

During a Democratic National Committee event in Maryland, Biden discussed abortion, gun control, and climate change before off-loading on “Trumpers.”

“Our democracy is on the ballot,” he said, returning to his recent framing of the upcoming midterms.

“I believe America is at an inflection point. One of those moments where everything changes. The extreme set of MAGA Republicans has chosen to go backward, full of anger, violence, hate and division.”

Biden said “not every Republican is a MAGA Republican,” arguing that not every member of the GOP “embraces extreme ideology.”

“I know because I’ve worked with them in the mainstream Republicans, and there’s still a few of them left,” Mr. Biden said.

Despite pledging to be a “president for all people,” Biden demonized half of America with attacks on Trumpers.

“Semi-fascism”

Biden also labeled former President Donald Trump’s “Make America Great Again” political agenda as “semi-fascism.”

During a prime-time address before a communist-style backdrop, Biden ramed the midterm elections this year as an eternal battle for “the soul of America.”

He accused “MAGA Republicans” of refusing to recognize free and fair elections, talking about violence in response to political policies they don’t like and working to thwart “the will of the people.”

The president then blasted Trump for refusing to accept the outcome of the 2020 election.

“Democracy cannot survive” under their belief system, he said.

But Biden later walked back some of his remarks after a growing backlash from both sides of the aisle.

Backlash

When Biden was asked whether he thought all Trump supporters were threats to the country, he said he drew the line at those who refused to accept the 2020 election results and those calling for violence.

Days after Biden’s Philadelphia speech, a nationwide survey by the Trafalgar Group reported that 56.8% of respondents said the address was a “dangerous escalation in rhetoric designed to incite conflict among Americans.”

Just 35% of those polled viewed the rhetoric as “acceptable campaign messaging” in an election year.

Among third-party and independent voters, 62.4% said the speech was dangerous, compared with 31.2% who said it was acceptable campaign rhetoric.

Biden maintained his stern warning about the threat of Trump supporters.

“The extreme set of MAGA Republicans has chosen to go backward, full of anger, violence, hate and division,” he said.

“That’s what their game is. Together, Democrats, independents, and mainstream Republicans can choose a different path forward for a future of unity and hope.”

He’s right, you know.
And the Republicans he can “work with” are precisely the Republicans that need to be sent to the glue factory.

Dan Bongino Drops Bombshell with Stunning Revelation on Secret Service Failures Surrounding Tump Shooting Former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino made a stunning revelation about security failures which led to former president Donald Trump coming within inches of being assassinated. During an appearance on Donald Trump Jr.'s podcast "Triggered," Bongino revealed that the rooftop from which the failed Trump assassin Thomas Matthew Crooks fired shots, was supposed to be covered by law enforcement personnel. Bongino revealed he was told this by an "unimpeachable source" who was knowledgeable about the situation. "That post, according to my source, that roof was supposed to be a police post. It was supposed to be someone there," he said. "They're now making up excuses, saying the pitch of the roof… my source says to me, no one knows why the post didn't show up," Bongino revealed. He added that Secret Service Director Kim Cheatle has been instructed by Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas to "keep her mouth shut if she wants to remain in her post. Cheatle has refused to resign from her post following the aftermath of the assassination attempt. The Secret Service identified a high-profile security vulnerability in the building but failed to protect the rooftop. Moreover, security forces did not take notice of Crooks roughly 30 minutes before the shooting. One law enforcement asset even managed to snap a photo of the suspect, though he was not confronted. Cheatle attempted to explain why the rooftop wasn't covered. "That building in particular has a sloped roof at its highest point. And so, you know, there's a safety factor that would be considered there that we wouldn't want to put somebody up on a sloped roof," the Secret Service director said in a statement to ABC News. "And so, you know, the decision was made to secure the building, from inside." "They're not putting that out there. But if you get those site post logs and those police instructions and it was a post on there and they didn't show up and no one checked, someone could have got your dad killed," Bongino said. "Within millimeters." Bongino said he would be revealing more details on his podcast. ""You're telling me the best technology you have was deployed and you missed a shooter 130 yards? Say it was 200 yards," Bongino told Fox News. The Secret Service CS team, Pete, the counter-sniper team? And I'm not sure those two guys are Secret Service. We have to remember that we don't always, when we go to New York sometimes with high-level protectees we'll use NYPD ESU counter-sniper. So I'm not really sure." "Either way, they'd still be briefed in. The question we have to ask is, if that's the best technology we have, and we had a CS team up there with a shooter that, you know, we're trained out to a thousand yards in the Secret Service with the counter-sniper team. How did they miss someone at most, you know, one-fifth of the way there? It doesn't make any sense."
