Biden: Build a 700-Mile Fence to Keep Out the Illegals
If the president is looking to booster his credibility with xenophobes, this clip might help
It’s time for another round of our favorite game: Who Said It: Trump or Biden?
In a newly resurfaced clip from 2006, one of the two current leading 2024 contenders shouts at a group of donors:
“Folks, I voted for a fence. I voted unlike most Democrats, and some people don’t like it, but I voted for a 700-mile fence… and to punish American employers who knowingly violate the law and hire illegals.”
He goes on, further touting his record: “I’m the guy that wrote the national crime bill. I’m the guy that wrote the bill that set up a drug czar… People are driving across that border with tons (tons! hear me tons!) of everything from byproducts of methamphetamine to cocaine to heroin. And it’s all coming up through corrupt Mexico.”
Who said it?
That’s right, it’s Joe Biden! America’s Most Progressive President, as they love to call him, who was allegedly chosen as Obama’s vice president to win over the conservative vote.
But instead of talking about this evidence, corporate media like MSNBC is gabbing away about how Biden doesn’t need to campaign until the general election because he has no opponent. Meanwhile Cornel West, RFK Jr, and Marianne Williamson are all climbing in the polls, sharing much less hateful messages than our Trumpian president.
And that’s not all Katie and Aaron throw down on this week: Putin unveils the brokered peace deal with Ukraine which was squashed by the West, an extra $6.2 billion magically shows up for weapons dealers, Trump describes his crazy phone call with Putin, corporate media suddenly cares about drug addicts when it comes to Hunter Biden, and Russiagate-expert Aaron analyzes John Durham’s terrible testimony before Adam Schiff.
As long as there’s terrible stuff in our media (and it only seems to increase these days), the Useful Idiots are here with your midweek dose of media madness. It’s our Thursday bonus episode. Let us know in the comments what corporate media monologues, interviews, or anything else you want to see on the next Thursday Throwdown.
