White House Insists Biden is Unifying America while Attacking MAGA Crowd – “You Can Do Both.”
White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki claimed that President Joe Biden can both unify the country and attack the “ultra-MAGA crowd.”
Biden promised to bring unity and bipartisanship during his campaign, but his presidency has only served to further expose the divide – Jen Psaki, however, is trying to convince you otherwise.
Psaki made the comments during a recent press briefing — responding to NPR’s Tamara Keith, who asked how Biden’s recent attacks aimed at the “ultra-MAGA” Republicans would “jive” with his promise to represent all Americans and support bipartisanship.
“The President and you have talked about ‘the MAGA crowd’ or the ‘ultra-MAGA.’ How does that jive with his desire to be the bipartisan guy?” Keith asked.
“The President’s view is you can do both. He believes that there is work we can continue to do together,” Psaki insisted, mentioning the bipartisan Innovation Act and saying that there were other pieces of legislation where the parties could find common ground and move forward.
“That can build on the nearly 80 bills that we signed into law last year that are bipartisan,” Psaki continued. “But he is also not going to stand by and not call out what he sees as ‘ultra-MAGA’ behavior, ‘ultra-MAGA’ policies that are out of the mainstream of the country and are not in the interest of the American people, whether that is efforts to prevent a woman from making choices about her own health care or whether that is Chairman Scott’s policy and proposals that would raise taxes on people making less than $100,000 a year.”
“He’s going to continue to call that out,” Psaki concluded, adding, “But he believes there’s still a path to move forward on where we have agreement.”
A number of critics spoke out to expose what a delusional claim Psaki had made.
“Not shocking coming from folks who think that men can get pregnant,” Townhall.com Senior Editor Matt Vespa commented in response to Psaki’s words.
Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) also weighed in on Psaki’s comments, adding, “The Biden doctrine: you can hate the ‘deplorables’ and insult half the country & the press will still call you a bipartisan ‘unifier’!”
“Joe Biden blamed me for a pandemic and then tried to have me fired,” radio host Jesse Kelly tweeted. “If he thinks we’re gonna be ‘working together’ anytime soon, he’s sorely mistaken.”
“They are just giving us this awesome branding for free,” Will Chamberlain noted.
“Haha this is such a dumb messaging exercise that isn’t going to move anyone,” Matt Whitlock concluded.
Biden has been ripped for claiming that the MAGA crowd is the most extreme political organization in American history.
Former Vice President Mike Pence summed it up best saying, “With all due respect, President Biden sounds desperate. It sounds like the rhetoric of an administration grasping for straws. … I mean, look, the president’s approval rating speaks for itself. He is exploring of the bowels of American approval numbers in modern history.”
“And it’s because the American people see the failed policies of this administration at home and abroad,” Pence continued.
