Biden slams new warning about ‘threats to democracy’ in midterms: ‘Their rhetoric is all false’
The “Outclassed” co-hosts slammed President Biden for his controversial speech at Union Station in Washington, DC, on Wednesday night, when he repeated his warning about “threats to democracy.”
“The threat to democracy is only important when it comes to rhetoric, because it’s all about getting those votes out to the polls,” said co-host Emily Compagno. “This just illustrates that their rhetoric – crime, migrant safety, education – is false, as are their principles.”
“They’re trying to change the optics of what it takes to win an election in five days,” said host Harris Faulkner. “But the truth is, he told half the country, if you don’t vote for him, you’re going to break America.”
During Wednesday night’s address, Biden focused his rhetoric on Republicans, asking Americans to vote Democratic to protect democracy.
Instead of covering the key issues they face voters Nov. 8Biden kept his focus on calling out GOP opponents in what some critics called a “disgusting” move.
“Curious because we haven’t heard him mention crime in a crime-ridden train station,” co-host Kayleigh McEnany said. “Optics matter, but apparently not to a president who has argued that voters must preserve and protect democracy by electing members of his own party.”
“You see mention of zero on the border, zero on crime, zero on inflation, zero on supply chain, zero on gas, zero on China. Lots of big zeros,” she added.
Fox News contributor Guy Benson argues that while there are some aspects of President Biden’s speech, he could be with him, such as the dangers of political violenceanti-GOP rhetoric as well as the Biden administration have killed his credibility on the subject.
“So if somebody wants to express some of the views that he’s making, fair enough. It’s not a priority for most Americans,” Benson said. “But he and his administration, unfortunately, have very little credibility. And I think he should probably have a seat.”
Despite Democrats’ messaging about the threat Republicans pose to democracy, many critics question the party’s refusal to address problems with the kitchen table driving voters to the ballot box.
“These are kitchen table issues that should be a priority in messaging. And we’re missing out,” said Cultureintel & CIien+ CEO Lili Gil Valletta. “And anyone who does their homework and looks at the numbers would rearrange that scenario.”
Time will tell if Biden’s speech and the Democrats’ latest statements will sway Americans to vote blue. With five days to go before states begin counting Americans’ votes, issues like inflation and crime remain top concerns for voters.
Compagno called out Democrats for spending millions to help the so-called “MAGA” candidates in the elections, believing that the democratic candidates will defeat them more easily.
“If it really was an existential threat, if it really was a soul [of America], money wouldn’t matter. They would do everything they can to prevent the ‘dismantling of democracy,'” she said.
“But he was silent about the Democrats raising them a second time.”
