Last night, Joe Biden delivered a pointless speech just days before the midterm elections, ignoring all pressing issues in the United States. Instead, he insipidly reminded Americans how much of a threat to democracy Republicans are for questioning the results of the 2020 election, something that Democrats have done for decades.

Biden began his speech by addressing the recent incident that occurred at the house of Nancy and Paul Pelosi. While there are many conflicting details about this supposed break-in and many theories about what happened that night, there is one thing that seems to be clear: the attacker – an illegal immigrant living in Berkeley, CA – had BLM signs and a gay flag outside his home. But, apparently, he was a “far-right extremist.”

Fueling the rumors that Pelosi’s attacker was a right-wing terrorist, Biden began to compare the attack on Pelosi to the Jan 6 Capitol riots, saying,

“After the assailant entered the home asking ‘Where’s Nancy? Where’s Nancy?’… Those are the very same words used by the mob when they stormed the United States Capitol on January the 6th.”

Biden then began to blame Trump and his supporters for fueling the “big lie” that the 2020 election was stolen, accusing the former president of inciting violence and threatening our democracy.

However, Democrats have been refusing the legitimacy of elections for decades without being accused of encouraging political violence or held up as criminals.

Biden continued to warn against the MAGA Republicans, referring to them as “dark forces” that “thirst for power.”

He then declared that it is both “unlawful” and “un-American” if people refuse to blindly accept election results. Apparently, it is un-American to express freedom of thought and speech.

While Biden obsessed over those who question the results of the 2020 election, he failed to even briefly address some of the most pressing issues facing our country. Just six days away from the midterm elections, Biden failed to mention issues at the U.S.-Mexico border, rising crime, record-high inflation, fentanyl crises, education, etc.

Biden has since faced major backlash from both parties for his ineffective, baseless remarks.

RNC Research tweeted a list of all the important topics Biden did not talk about, questioning the President’s priorities as tight races in many states are down to their crucial last few days.

Fox News’s Tucker Carlson tore Biden’s speech apart, saying, “What is going on here? We’re a week from the election – six days. Biden could have given – would, under normal circumstances, have given a speech about his policies and how they’ve made your life better… He could, in other words, have made a pitch for your vote based on what he has done. That’s what politicians do in functioning democracies.”

Fox News host Jesse Watters also bashed Biden’s speech, saying, “That was the President of the United States confessing that he’s about to get wiped out a week from now.”

New York Times, a Left-leaning media outlet, reported on Biden’s speech, saying, “Mr. Biden seemed almost to be arguing with those voters who were not, in his view, prioritizing election legitimacy highly enough. Medicare, Social Security and the other issues were important, he said, ‘but there’s something else at stake: democracy itself.'”

Before Biden spoke on Wednesday, Bernie Sanders’ 2020 campaign manager Faiz Shakir addressed the topic of the speech, suggesting that the president should not be focusing on the issue of democracy this close to the midterms.

“We’re in the last phase where I think you ought to be talking to a persuasion audience, and I hope there are some people at the White House watching, because when you think about this address he’s about to give tonight – I hope they’re re-writing it and focusing on cost of living,” said Shakir.

“If you’re going to vote on democracy… and abortion, I’d posit to you that a lot of those people have made their decision,” he added.

The New York Post’s John Podhoretz criticized Biden’s speech as “forceless,” saying, “Biden didn’t appeal passionately to the better angels of our nature because there was no energy behind his words.”

“It was like he was one of my kids and he was showing signs of having stayed up too late and it was past time for him to go beddie-bye,” Podhoretz wrote.
