When the President of the United States addresses the country, the world watches.
Typically, presidential addresses are intended to make strong remarks not only to people but to the entire globe.
In his recent address to the nation, President Joe Biden appeared to accuse around half of the voting population of being a threat to the country, in addition to making other incendiary statements.
At one point, Biden stated, “We must be honest with each other and with ourselves.”
“Too much of what’s happening in our country today is not normal. Donald Trump and the MAGA Republicans represent extremism that threatens the very foundations of our republic.”
“MAGA Republicans do not respect the Constitution,” he claimed. “They do not believe in the rule of law. They do not recognize the will of the people. They refuse to accept the results of a free election.”
“MAGA forces are determined to take this country backwards. Backwards to an America where there is no right to choose, no right to privacy, no right to contraception, no right to marry who you love.
They promote authoritarian leaders and they fan the flames of political violence that are a threat to our personal rights, to the pursuit of justice, to the rule of law, to the very soul of this country,” Biden claimed.
Those who seek to Restore America’s Greatness were startled.
The reaction has been intense.
CNN journalist Brianna Keilar, who is married to U.S. Army Lt. Col. Fernando Luján, a Special Forces officer, criticized Biden in a tweet for utilizing U.S. Marines as a backdrop for his address at Independence Hall in Philadelphia.
“Whatever you think of this speech the military is supposed to be apolitical. Positioning Marines in uniform behind President Biden for a political speech flies in the face of that. It’s wrong when Democrats do it. It’s wrong when Republicans do it,” she tweeted.

During her “New Day” program Friday morning, Keilar brought on Allison Jaslow, a former executive director of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee and herself a U.S. Army veteran, to comment.
“There are a lot of people who are taking issue with us just raising this point,” Jaslow — who said she agreed with the “substance” of Biden’s speech — began.
“Listen, you know, there are Marines that could have organically showed up in some frame, sure, those were obviously men that were put there and they’re different than volunteers that would fill up a stage at a campaign event or even an official event that is put together,” she continued, according to Mediaite.
