President Joe Biden had strong words for people questioning the seriousness of the January 6 Capitol insurrection.
“I don’t care if you think I’m Satan reincarnated,” he said Wednesday at a CNN town hall in Cincinnati. “The fact is you can’t look at that television and say nothing happened on the sixth and listen to people who say this was a peaceful march.”
Biden was responding to the moderator Don Lemon’s question on whether he had confidence Republicans and Democrats could work together, given that the two sides were having trouble establishing a bipartisan investigation into the Capitol insurrection, per the Associated Press.
A 13-member House committee – consisting of both Democrats and Republicans – was mooted last month to investigate the January 6 attack on the US Capitol.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi earlier Wednesday rejected two Republicans nominated by House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy to be on the committee.
Pelosi questioned whether the two nominees – Reps. Jim Banks of Indiana and Jim Jordan of Ohio – would compromise the integrity of the inquiry. In the hours after the Capitol insurrection, the two voted to overturn election results. They are also vocal supporters of former President Donald Trump.
“With respect for the integrity of the investigation, with an insistence on the truth and with concern about statements made and actions taken by these members, I must reject the recommendations of Representatives Banks and Jordan to the Select Committee,” Pelosi said in a statement seen by the AP.
In response, McCarthy said Republicans would not participate in the investigation if Democrats did not accept the people he picked.
Biden also had strong words for GOP legislators pushing voting restrictions and changes to the way elections are run, calling it “Jim Crow on steroids.”
“I stand by what I said,” Biden told Lemon. “Never before has there been an attempt by state legislatures to take over the ability to determine who won – not count the votes, determine who won.”
never should have been elected and put into office–both are the 2 worst jerks ever to cheat on – in the election–they are ruining this country
My opinion and that of many Americans is that the election was rigged by the shadowy, demonic Left. It suits their agenda. Biden is not in charge.
Now I am certain Joke Biden is the anti-Christ!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Once again ..the idiot rises .the cites ARE supposed to be what determines who wins!! Dems make up their own rules.
He doesn’t care because it’s true. According to The Bible, Satan is a liar. Joe Biden is a liar AND an idiot. His solution to the border crisis is “don’t come” while drug cartels and millions of illegal immigrants come into this country, putting Border Patrol Agents and American citizens lives at risk. Has Mr. Biden been examined for Dementia lately???
And Trump is a saint…
Way to redirect. Maybe Trump wasn’t all that great but that doesn’t mean that gives this clown a free pass. When you mess up you should fess up to it and move on in a better direction. This one doesn’t seem able to realize he’s made a mistake.
A Saint is just a sinner saved by God’s grace. Saint’s are repentant sinners who have pujt their trust in Christ Jesus and His atoning work. The letters of the Apostles are letters “to the Saints.” He is speaking to confessing and believing Christ followers of the New Testament age.
