There have been a lot of reactions to Joe Biden’s despicable and divisive speech that he sullied Independence Hall with on Thursday.
We reported a lot of the hot takes including from President Donald Trump. Even Biden himself this morning tried to backpedal from what he had said in his prepared speech. But it was too late, he’d already stepped into it big time by attacking millions of Americans in an unprecedented way.
Sen. John Kennedy (R-LA) delivered a great response, as only he can, noting what a failure this was in a primetime address to use it to attack Americans.

“After listening to the president’s speech, I really understand why it’s an unassailable fact that age does not guarantee wisdom,” Kennedy quipped. [….]
“His speech was a very cynical attempt to fill our heads with stupid,” Kennedy added. “I thought to myself, what a missed opportunity to talk to the American people — straight up — about the reasons when they lie down to sleep at night they can’t. He could have talked about crime, inflation, learning loss by our children, the mountains of fentanyl coming across the border killing our teenagers,” Kennedy noted.
“Instead, he chose to say to the American people: ‘If you don’t agree with me about higher taxes, more government, if you don’t agree with me that moms are ‘birthing people,’ if you don’t agree with me that government has a constitutional right to talk to your five-year-old about sexuality — you’re a bad person and you’re not even an American,'” Kennedy said.
“After it was over I said to myself, you know it’s really true — I’ve said this before — the water’s not gonna clear up in Washington until we get the pigs out of the creek,” Kennedy explained. “And no one is coming to save us but ourselves.”
Exactly, and there are a ton of “pigs” in that creek who need to be cleaned out. Biden showed what his priorities were when given the opportunity to speak to the American people — not any of the issues that were concerning them, but attacking not only his political opponents but their voters as well. He isn’t interested in “Making America Great Again”; he wants to attack those who are, which shows you just where his head is. Because all he and the Democrats care about is holding onto power and doing anything they can — no matter who it hurts — to do that.
Kennedy said that it sounded a lot like Hillary Clinton’s “deplorable” comment. But it was even worse since Biden has been saying things like this for a week and this was a prepared speech, so it was a very prepared statement. Plus Biden was also inciting people against millions of Americans, trying to dehumanize them. “Deplorable” was bad but this was far worse.
“The people that president Biden is talking about — some of whom supported President Trump, some didn’t — are the people who get up every day, go to work, obey the law, pay their taxes, try to teach their kids morals,” Kennedy explained. “They are proud of America. They do want to make America great again.
They just don’t agree with Biden, Kennedy said. That’s their “crime” in a Biden Administration, that’s their “extremism.”
“I think he’s made a political mistake,” Kennedy said. “But it says something about his administration.” Indeed, that’s why Biden was so desperate to backpedal this morning — his handlers finally got that this tactic went too far. But how clueless and messed up are they to not understand that they shouldn’t be attacking Americans? Very.
