In what was claimed to be a “soul of the nation” speech, Joe Biden targeted “MAGA Republicans” as enemies of democracy, and he is now facing a serious backlash from Republicans for his insane intimidation tactic.
The president told Americans in prime time that the nation’s democratic values are under threat. He went on to accuse “MAGA Republicans” of extremism that “threatens the very foundations of our Republic.”
Apparently for emphasis, he made the comments with uniformed Marines lined up behind him. Biden decried the modern GOP as “dominated, driven, and intimidated” by former President Donald Trump and his supporters.
For the best response in a night of dynamic words from the nation’s conservatives, look no further than Sen. John Kennedy (R-LA). Joking that age clearly does not equate to wisdom, the Republican went on to describe the remarks that of course were “not” political.
Kennedy called Biden’s diatribe “a very cynical attempt to fill our heads with stupid.”
The senator said the Democrat could have addressed issues that concern Americans such as crime, inflation, losses of learning opportunities by children, and waves of fentanyl pouring across the border.
Tonight, Joe Biden vilified millions of Americans in a divisive & angry speech that was detached from the reality of his political failures.
He isn’t actually interested in restoring the soul of the nation, he’s only interested pitting his fellow Americans against one another. pic.twitter.com/6YfYAKiph9

But that didn’t happen. Instead, Biden used his bully pulpit to denigrate Americans who do not agree with him on higher taxes, larger government, calling moms “birthing people,” and talking to five-year-olds about sexuality.
If you do not agree with the president on these issues, Kennedy said you are seen as “a bad person and you’re not even an American.”
How’s that for Biden healing the soul of the nation?
Kennedy did not stop his spot-on critique there. Defending “MAGA forces” and “MAGA Republicans” who were the targets of the president’s remarks, Kennedy recalled Secretary Clinton’s description of Republicans as “deplorables.”
