Joe Biden launch video takes shot at Ron DeSantis, Donald Trump

Biden laiunch
'MAGA extremists are lining up to take on those bedrock freedoms.'

President Joe Biden is running for re-election, and his launch video shows him looking behind him.

The production, which runs for a little more than three minutes, includes shots of so-called “MAGA extremists,” including two Floridians either running for the White House or seriously mulling the decision.

Around the 35-second mark of the ad, after an intro laden with positive and aspirational rhetoric and images, the mood darkens with a shot of the January 6, 2021 insurrectionist riot in Washington, which was intended to derail the certification of the 2020 Presidential Election.

The ad also uses that image briefly in the first seconds, but the narration upon its recurrence reinforces the election’s stakes.

“Around the country, MAGA extremists are lining up to take on those bedrock freedoms,” Biden said.

“Cutting Social Security that you’ve paid for your entire life, while cutting taxes for the very wealthy. Dictating what health care decisions women can make. Banning books. And telling people who they can love. All the while making it more difficult for you to be able vote.”

By the 57-second mark, the minor key fades in favor of a hopeful tone, after establishing the contrast between Bidenism and the right wing.

While Ron DeSantis has yet to weigh in on Biden’s formal launch to his campaign, former President Donald Trump has, with an essay-length statement.

“With such a calamitous and failed presidency, it is almost inconceivable that Biden would even think of running for reelection,” Trump said Monday.

“You know what happened in the last election: they cheated, and they rigged the election. But I promise you this: when I stand on that debate stage and compare our records, it will be Radical Democrats’ worst nightmare because there’s never been a record as bad as they have, and our country has never been through so much.”

    Far right nut job and greedy hog Donald J Trump might have to debate in handcuffs or perhaps they will wheel him on stage in a plexiglass cell. Still indictments coming for “I just need you to find more votes than we have.”

    Rhonda S Panties and Defenolious Javina Trump could chute each other on Beachfront Avenue and nobody would care. Yeah that’s the wrong chute, but the correct chute lands you in mod jail for a couple hours, so here we are, spelling it chute.

    Don’t believe all the far right propaganda from Mike Lindell and Alex Jones. Joe has done well. Tune out the lying GOP cartoon characters and vote Biden in 2024.

      Joe Bidumb and his criminally corrupt family are selling our country to the Chinese. Anyone supporting this curse upon the USA is as guilty of treason as Bidumb is. This generation will go down in history as the worse time in USA history, and Bidumb as the worst president in history by far.

    I can’t believe there are this many stupid people in the USA, but the people have proved it before in Germany, China, Russia, Cuba, Venezuela…….. They are always for the working class, until everyone is the working class, but them. Then they control everything, especially YOU.

      Right? A billionaire tells poor whytes “I am your retribution,” lol. Who believes such garbage? Oh right, poor whytes. If they didn’t want to be poor, they should have learned to do something worthwhile. Instead, they whine and blame people who do know how to do something worthwhile for having been chosen by employers who violate the law by hiring people not properly visa’ed for working in the USA. It ain’t the non-visa’ed immigrants. It’s the CEOs who hire them. You want to march with your Tiki Torches, march on over to Maga Lardo and protest on the lawn of that construction CEO
