In fact this may be the most shameless thing ever written, or possibly even thought:
Just in case your mental flow chart has been disrupted by the event horizon levels of chutzpah on display, the analogy here is that criticizing Al Qaeda would constitute politicizing the commemoration of 9/11.
I wonder what they’ve got on this guy?
“For the first time in our history, a President had not just lost an election. He tried to prevent the peaceful transfer of power as a violent mob reached the Capitol,” Biden said in a speech from the US Capitol that lasted just under 30 minutes. “But they failed. They failed. And on this day of remembrance, we must make sure that such an attack never, never happens again.”
In a direct shot at Trump, Biden added, “His bruised ego matters more to him than our democracy or our Constitution, he can’t accept he lost.”
Biden has typically avoided speaking directly about his predecessor since taking office, and pointedly did not say his name on Thursday — instead making more than a dozen references to “the former President.”But the President’s blistering speech nonetheless confronted Trump’s election lies and post-presidency behavior, accusing him of spreading falsehoods about the 2020 election, refusing to accept defeat and holding him accountable for inciting a violent mob of his supporters to storm the US Capitol.
“A former President of the United States of America has created and spread a web of lies about the 2020 election. He’s done so because he values power over principle, because he sees his own interest as more important than his country’s interest and America’s interest,” Biden said.
