One Event with Very Different Responses from Deplorable Trump and Dark Brandon – HotAir

Joe Biden is running for re-election. His campaign is centering around one thought – Trump and his supporters are bad for democracy.

January 6, 2021 is alive and well in the 2024 presidential election. Trump supporters, you are bad and Joe Biden is using you to his benefit, or so he thinks. He’s counting on Trump Derangement Syndrome to still be strong enough among voters that the mere mention of Trump and MAGA Republicans will send Democrats running to their polling places in order to vote for him. It is the 2024 version of Biden’s 2020 reason to run for president – he is the only one who can beat Trump.

The Biden campaign released an ad and I have to say, it is an odd one. All the images that flash on the screen center around January 6 and other events that ended with extreme behavior but Biden speaks about voting rights at the end of the ad. It’s random and it’s weird. Standard Joe Biden, right?

Joe Biden, the man who pledged to unify Americans in 2020, has done everything in his power to divide Americans. He loves to pretend that there are problems for voters in some sort of imaginary Jim Crow era way. For example, Biden led Democrats in trashing Georgia for passing election reform legislation. Instead of the legislation being racist and restricting for voters, Georgians turned out in record numbers to vote and all went well. Sorry, haters. Biden, you may remember, told a mostly black audience during a campaign event in 2012 that Mitt Romney wanted to put them all back in chains. Biden is not a unifer, he is a divider.

As Jazz pointed out earlier, Biden is hitting the campaign trail. He has no accomplishments to tout so he is going to simply slam Republicans, Trump and his supporters in particular. Voters look to the future, not at the past, and want to be inspired by a candidate. Dark Brandon is back and it’s all Team Biden has to offer.

Joe Biden is the first president since September 11, 2001 to not mark that horrible day with a visit to one of the terrorism sites. This year, though, he is all prepared to mark the third anniversary of January 6, 2021. The day falls on Saturday. The weather is predicted to be bad that day so Team Biden is moving the event up to Friday. The destination is Valley Forge, Pennsylvania.

To mark the moment, President Joe Biden plans to visit a site near Valley Forge, Pennsylvania, on Friday where George Washington and the struggling Continental Army endured a tough winter during the American Revolution. Biden’s advisers say the stop in a critical swing state will highlight Trump’s role in the Jan. 6 siege and give the Democrat a chance for him to lay out the stakes of this year’s election. Weather concerns led Biden to move up his appearance from Saturday.

What will Trump be doing on Saturday? He will be campaigning in Iowa.

Former President Donald Trump will spend Saturday’s third anniversary of the Capitol riot by holding two campaign rallies in leadoff-voting Iowa in his bid to win back the White House.

Trump has still built a commanding lead in the Republican primary, and his rivals largely refrain from criticizing him about Jan. 6. He has called it “a beautiful day” and described those imprisoned for the insurrection as “great, great patriots” and “hostages.” At some campaign rallies, he has played a recording of “The Star-Spangled Banner” sung by jailed rioters — the anthem interspersed with his recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance.

Republican strategist Alice Stewart said that “a lot of Republican voters don’t love Jan. 6, but they’re not obsessed about it either” and may support Trump because they oppose Biden’s economic policies.

“Republican voters can hold two consecutive thoughts and say, ‘Jan. 6, that wasn’t great, but that doesn’t affect my bottom line,’” she said.

Which do voters loathe more – the January 6 riot on Capitol Hill or life in Biden’s America? I’m guessing that voters will have the struggles in their everyday lives in mind when they go to vote. Voters vote on pocketbook issues and that is why Biden is in such trouble. Bidenomics is a failure and Americans are tired of hearing the Biden administration’s gaslighting on how well the economy is doing. No one is feeling it. The cost of living is still too high. Prices have not come down. Biden’s bad economic policies caused the pain and I sure hope voters let him know they are not falling for his lies.

Republican voters think too much is being made of the riot on January 6.

A Washington Post-University of Maryland poll released this week found that about 7 in 10 Republicans say too much is being made of the attack. Just 18% of GOP supporters say that protesters who entered the Capitol were “mostly violent,” down from 26% in 2021, while 77% of Democrats and 54% of independents say the protesters were mostly violent — essentially unchanged from 2021.

Democrats see it differently.

A December poll from The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research, meanwhile, found that 87% of Democrats and 54% of independents believe a second Trump term would negatively affect U.S. democracy. Some 82% of Republicans believe democracy would be weakened by another Biden win, with 56% of independents agreeing.

Biden ran on saving democracy, whatever that means, in 2020. He’s doing the same now. Ironically, it is Biden and Democrats who are doing what they accuse Republicans and Trump of doing. Biden’s America often looks like a banana republic. Imagine Republicans taking the name of a Democrat challenger off a primary ballot – as Colorado and Maine did to Trump. Yet, Democrats applaud these measures as though they are constitutional or right. They are neither. It is Joe Biden and Democrats who are destroying democracy, if that is how they wish to phrase it. That is why they must be replaced in November.
