Ron DeSantis denounces ‘American Nero’ Joe Biden

DeSantis Fox News
"One of the most disgusting speeches an American President has ever given."

Ron DeSantis is responding to President Joe Biden‘s speech on the “soul” of the nation, describing the President as “the American Nero” and a “failed leader” in fresh comments this weekend.

“I thought it was one of the most disgusting speeches an American President has ever given. He ran as being a unifier, and he’s basically saying to the vast majority of the country that disapproves of him that they’re effectively a threat to the public.”

DeSantis made the comments during Friday’s episode of the Fox News Channel’s Ingraham Angle. The Governor extended his critic beyond Biden’s oratory, also impugning the President’s age.

“He dodders. He lashes out,” DeSantis lamented, before offering descriptions of Biden policies that have “left wreckage in his wake.”

DeSantis suggested that Biden’s primetime address denouncing Donald Trump and so-called “MAGA Republicans” was an attempt to rally his base amid declining political fortunes.

“I think that he is doing this because he’s trying to energize his base to fend off a real butt whippin’ this November,” DeSantis told guest host Raymond Arroyo.

Arroyo asked DeSantis if “senility or self-preservation” drove the President’s political calculus. DeSantis responded by ripping off an Elon Musk joke, this time without attribution, though he had credited Musk previously.

“It’s been said that the President of the United States is whoever is feeding the teleprompter,” DeSantis quipped. “They fed that teleprompter in in Philadelphia last night. He angrily delivered that speech and lashed out at his fellow countrymen.”

DeSantis noted Biden attempted to ameliorate some of the speech’s stronger depictions Friday, saying he was “asked off the cuff and said something totally opposite.”

“But they’re tweeting from his account the same nasty stuff that he said last night. And so I think the people that are in control of the White House want to drive this message that people who dissent from his policies are somehow second-class citizens.”

    DeSantis is absolutely right. Biden’s speech, with its Comintern overtones and its mechanistic marines, looking something like Darth Vader coming down the ramp from his spaceship, is one of the darkest moments in recent American history. Coupled with is antiquarian sexual perversions and his play-pretend Top Gun persona, it bespeaks a man with militarism on his mind and no sense of restraint. These are frightening times, and they require Republicans to do something to reduce the power of this power-mad presidency.

    The Democrats better wake up because they’ve only got a few months and everything is going to turn upside down for them. Here is a reality check for them:

    Biden has committed impeachable offense after impeachable offense and his impeachment is coming.

    And if you think you can’t deal with Biden being impeached just wait until he’s faced with treason charges, ditto for Hunter. It is not going to be pretty and Merrick Garland, the FBI, and the Department of Justice will not go along with this for much longer; it is going to turn and for the first time in the history in America a president will be charged with treason.
    And within months Biden will be out the door he will either resign before he’s impeached or will be impeached, but he will be out and the impeachment is coming for Kamala, also.

    The speech was an impeachable offense in and of itself among all the other offenses.

    Biden created a war between Russia and the Ukraine and that’s a fact. And for those who are too dumb to realize what’s going on and the Day of Reckoning… when Biden and Kamala are out the door and there’s going to be a Republican Speaker of the House who will fill in the presidency. They will hold the position to 2024 then a Republican will be elected, again.

    Leaders in the FBIi, the Department of Justice, and the Attorney General will be held accountable as well so you people who are mocking Trump and Republicans better wake up because there is an impeachment and jail ahead for your leaders.

    Biden is so deranged over Hunter’s antics and being charged with treason so he is in a deranged state misusing his office of the presidency to weaponize our law enforcement agencies to not only protect Hunter, but to retaliate against Republicans because he is desperate and will do anything to keep himself and his son from facing some of the worst consequences that a president has ever faced in the history of the world.

      Todays Republican Party has co-opted more than a few organizations to support their dangerous MAGA agenda.

      From the Lincoln Project:

      “ Of course, there’s a whole ecosystem of institutions that the Ultra MAGA has either co-opted or created to continue this normalization. The American Conservative Union, Turning Point USA, the Conservative Partnership Institute, Heritage Foundation, and the NRA are all active participants in this attempted destruction of our republic. Just look at how their responses have tracked Trump’s since the FBI raid. If it seems like they’re operating from the same playbook, it’s because they are. ”

      Our job as patriotic Americans is to understand and spread the word that MAGA Republicans and their party must be destroyed.

      Republicans are America’s problem. Vote Republicans out of office.

      Biden was not saying “the overwhelming majority of Republicans “ are a threat! He was talking to you, not about you.

      Biden was talking about violent extremists who got normal people injured or killed on Jan6, and congresspeople who are threatening their colleagues if they dare to vote their own conscience and beliefs.

      That is not half the country—-or even half the Republicans. Biden is calling for unity—-regardless of party—- to protect democracy from the small percentage of people who are trying to destroy traditional conservatism and American values. Look at his record and his actual words. Bipartisanship is, and has always been, his number one goal and source of a sense of accomplishment.
