White House adviser Keisha Lance Bottom continued to follow the Biden administration’s practice of slamming “MAGA Republicans” and claiming that the followers who support the former president Donald Trump are a threat to the nation.
On MSNBC’s Jonathan Capehart on “The Sunday Show,” Bottoms stated that Democrats, Republicans, and independents must all be worried about this threat.
“There is a MAGA Republican agenda that gives no consideration to the rule of law, that has no respect for a woman’s right to choose, that wants to defund the FBI,” she stated. “There is a MAGA Republican agenda that thought it was okay to attack our nation’s Capitol on January 6.”
In recent weeks, which were highlighted by Biden’s controversial speech in Philadelphia Biden along with his staff have walked in the mud of claiming that they only were speaking about a specific segment within the Republican Party while also painting the GOP as a whole in broad strokes, claiming it was subsumed from MAGA Republicans.
“Not every Republican, not even the majority of Republicans, are MAGA Republicans. Not every Republican embraces their extreme ideology,” Biden declared at the end of the course of his Philadelphia speech. Two paragraphs after, he added, “But there is no question that the Republican Party today is dominated, driven, and intimidated by Donald Trump and the MAGA Republicans, and that is a threat to this country.”
Capehart pointed out that the Biden administration has adopted “a tough line … against Republicans writ large,” and Capehart asked Bottoms to “keep hammering away at that phrase” in the lead up to the November election.
Without specifying exactly what the goals are, Bottoms said the following “it is important for all of us, not just the president, not just me, for all of us to call it out for what it is.”
“It is a danger to our democracy,” she declared. “It is a danger to our way of life.”
