Joe Biden Calls Out Donald Trump on Anniversary of Capitol Riot

President Joe Biden is speaking out, one year later.

“One year ago today, in this sacred place, democracy was attacked,” he started. “The will of the people was under assault, and our Constitution faced the gravest of threats.”

“He tried to prevent the peaceful transfer of power as a violent mob breached the Capitol, but they failed. They failed…you cannot be patriotic when you embrace and enable lies,” he said.

“Those who stormed this Capitol, and those who instigated and incited, and those who called on them to do so, held a dagger at the throat of American democracy.”

He also spoke about the officers’ testimony following the events, and the mocking some of them faced.

“How dare anyone diminish, belittle or deny the hell they were put through,” he said, also talking about the gallows that were set up on Capitol grounds to “hang” Vice President Mike Pence, who was presiding over the electoral vote count.

“This wasn’t a group of tourists…this was an armed insurrection.”

He went on to say Trump spread the lies about the election “for profit and power,” and also because “he can’t accept that he lost.”

He also said that Trump supporters are “trying to rewrite history” about what happened on that day, while continuing to make claims of 2020 election fraud even though “there is simply zero proof the election results were inaccurate.”

“The lies that drove the anger and the madness in this place, they have not abated,” he said.

There are also some new allegations about Donald Trump.
