While speaking to a theater full of liberal celebrities this week, Joe Biden said that Trump is trying to destroy the nation and American democracy.
Biden says this as he and his party are trying to put Trump in jail and to get his name removed from the ballot in some states.
Biden has the nerve to say this as his policies have driven up inflation, caused an invasion at the southern border, and families across the country are struggling to buy basic items like food.

Biden tells a Broadway theater packed for fundraisers that Trump is determined to destroy the nation
President Joe Biden on Monday told a packed Broadway theater full of big-name stars hosting a fundraiser in his honor that he was running for reelection because Donald Trump was determined to destroy the nation.
Democracy is at stake, he told the audience at the Lunt-Fontanne Theater. Hate groups have been emboldened, he said. Books are being banned. Children go to school fearing shootings.
“Let there be no question, Donald Trump and his MAGA Republicans are determined to destroy American democracy,” he said, referring to the former president’s slogan, “Make America Great Again.” “And I will always defend, protect, and fight for our democracy.”
Biden also accused Trump and his allies of bowing down to authoritarians: “I will not side with dictators like Putin. Maybe Trump and his MAGA friends can bow down but I won’t.”
Don’t you love the cute little sign they put up for the event?
You know how you see polls that show a small percentage of people support Biden and his policies, and you wonder who those people are? It’s these people.
