'Where the hell are we?' President Joe Biden throws down on Lindsey Graham over 'riots in the streets'
In a speech at a Pennsylvania college Tuesday afternoon President Joe Biden railed against Republican Senator Lindsey Graham for threatening riots if the Dept. of Justice prosecutes Donald Trump for the theft of some of the nation’s most-secret documents.
Biden, traveling to talk about his “Safer America” plan to battle crime and gun violence while funding an additional 100,000 local police officers across the country, focused his ire on the Republican Senator from South Carolina, although not by name.
“No one expects politics to be patty cake,” Biden told supporters. “They sometimes get mean as hell.”
“But the idea you turn on a television and see senior senators and congressmen saying, ‘if such and such happens, there’ll be blood in the street.’ Where the hell are we?” the President asked, rhetorically.
Over the weekend Sen. Lindsey Graham said, “If there’s a prosecution of Donald Trump for mishandling classified information … there’ll be riots in the streets.”
Trump is believed to be under several criminal investigations. His “mishandling” of classified documents including some of the nation’s most closely-guarded national defense secrets, isn’t just mishandling.
Biden also took aim at Republicans over the weekend, calling Trump’s “ultra-MAGA” philosophy “semi-fascism.” The President’s press secretary later said Graham’s threat of “riots in the streets” formed Trump’s “semi-fascism” belief.
