Yesterday, while speaking at a promotional event in Pennsylvania for his ‘Safer America Plan’ to “reduce gun crime,” Joe Biden veered off-script and mocked supporters of the Second Amendment.
“For those brave right-wing Americans who say [the 2nd amendment] is all about keeping America independent and safe. If you want to fight against the country, you need an F-15. You need something a little more than a gun,” rambled Biden.
“No, I’m not joking,” added Biden. “Think about this. Think about the rationale we use – that’s used to provide this. And who are they shooting at? They’re shooting at these guys behind me.”
One takeaway – and perhaps the only one – from this incoherent babble is that, somehow, Biden equates the desire to keep America “independent and safe” with wanting to fight against the country.

Today, during her press briefing, White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre attempted to explain Joe Biden’s shocking remarks when he threatened military action against Trump supporters.
“The ‘president’ thinks there is an extremist threat to our democracy,” KJP said. “The president has been clear as he can be on that particular piece when we talk about our democracy when we talk about our freedoms,” Jean-Pierre said, adding, “The way that he sees is the MAGA Republicans are the most energized part of the Republican party – that extreme, this is an extreme threat to our democracy, to our freedom, to our rights.”

Someone needs to explain the difference between a democracy and a constitutional republic to Biden’s foreign born White House Press Secretary.
