Vulnerable Democrats Are Running Away From Biden’s Toxic Anti-MAGA Speech

Joe Biden’s anti-MAGA speech last week was so toxic that Democrats who are facing tough reelection campaigns are desperately trying to distance themselves from it.

Even these Democrats know that attacking half of the country before a midterm election was a stupid strategy.

Their party may pay a heavy price for it.

The Washington Examiner reports:

Democrats run from Biden’s divisive MAGA speech

Democrats in tough reelection races want nothing to do with President Joe Biden’s recent campaign to label half the country as a “threat to democracy.”

Asked to comment on Biden’s Philadelphia speech, Sen. Maggie Hassan (D-NH) told WMUR, “I think President Biden’s comments just painted with way too broad a brush.” Hassan will not have a set Republican opponent till after the Sept. 13 primary, but a recent University of New Hampshire poll showed her up only 1 point over the Republican front-runner.

Sen. Mark Kelly (D-AZ), who is also locked in a close reelection fight, denied even watching Biden’s speech. “I think a president has a right to give his opinion,” Kelly told the Associated Press. “You know, I don’t share all of his opinions. But he has a right to give his opinion.”

Hassan and Kelly have every reason to distance themselves from Biden’s divisive rhetoric. A new Reuters poll shows that the vast majority, 59%, said Biden’s speech would only further divide the country.

The Washington Times has another example:

Wisconsin Democratic Senate candidate skips Biden speech for other ‘events across the state’

The Wisconsin Democrat running to oust Republican Sen. Ron Johnson was absent from President Biden‘s side during his trip to Milwaukee on Monday, marking the latest example of Democrats in tough races bucking appearances with their party’s leader.

Lt. Gov. Mandela Barnes, who’s running against Mr. Johnson, had other engagements and was unable to attend Mr. Biden‘s Labor Day campaign speech.

“The lieutenant governor appreciates the president coming to Wisconsin to honor the labor movement in our state,” campaign spokeswoman Maddy McDaniel told the Daily Mail. “Mandela walked in the Milwaukee parade and then went to support Wisconsin workers at events across the state, including in Racine, where UAW Local 180 has been on strike for over 100 days.”

There might be some bad polling over the speech coming out soon.

It was, without a doubt, one of the worst speeches ever given by an American president.
