ON THIS DAY IN HISTORY…
1958: US atomic submarine USS Nautilus begins 1st transit of the North Pole “Operation Sunshine.”
The Hill noted that Biden’s taken to calling Trump “the defeated former president of the United States.”
During a virtual address last week, Biden challenged Trump’s patriotism and loyalty to the country.
“You can’t be pro-insurrection and pro-cop. You can’t be pro-insurrection and pro-democracy. You can’t be pro-insurrection and pro-American,” Biden said.
The following day, Biden doubled down on Twitter: “Call me old fashioned, but I don’t think inciting a mob that attacks a police officer is ‘respect for the law.’”
The change didn’t go unnoticed by Fox News host Jesse Watters.
“He needs to drop the tough guy act,” Watters said of Biden.
Democratic strategists told The Hill that Biden’s uptick in Trump insults is intentional.
“Why not compare and contrast the person who truly is the face of the Republican Party?” Democratic strategist Rodell Mollineau told the outlet. “Donald Trump is the face of the opposition, and it’s smart to remind Americans who he is.”
