President Joe Biden has pulled back on his aggressive attack on what he termed “MAGA Republicans” just a few days ago.
The tagline “ultra-MAGA” proved to be an abysmal failure when GOP supporters immediately adopted it as a slogan and even fund-raiser. So now it’s “MAGA Republicans.” With strange red backlighting and uniformed Marines behind him, Biden went on the attack.
Clearly because of Trump supporters, there is now an attack on “equality and democracy.” In Biden’s own words, “Donald Trump and the MAGA Republicans represent an extremism that threatens the very foundations of our Republic.”

So the president made his point.
Moving on to Friday, Biden was asked by Fox News’ Peter Doocy if he considered “all Trump supporters” to be a threat to the U.S. This was a fair question considering the vitriol spewed from the stage the night before.
The Democrat responded with his comment about Trump supporters not being a threat. This clearly marked a sharp reversal from Thursday, when the very fabric of the nation was under threat from red caps with white lettering.
In Biden’s words, it is useless to “pretend otherwise.” He qualified his statements — somewhat — by asserting that not every Republican or even a majority are “MAGA Republicans.”
In fact, the diatribe softened to the point where Biden on Friday merely recognized that it is “inappropriate” to not condemn violence or concede elections.
