Trump calls Biden's speech 'awkward and angry'
Republican leader Donald Trump responds to US President Joe Biden's speech, questioning his health and cognitve abilities.
Republican mogul Donald Trump responded Friday to US President Joe Biden’s last speech by calling it “angry and awkward,” in addition to questioning Biden’s health and cognitive abilities via his Truth Social account.
In his speech, Biden suggested that the slogan and agenda of Make American Great Again (MAGA) is an “extremism that threatens the very foundation” of the US.
“Someone should explain to Joe Biden, slowly but passionately, that MAGA means, as powerfully as mere words can get, MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN! If he doesn't want to Make America Great Again, which through words, action, and thought, he doesn't, then he certainly should not be representing the United States of America," Trump wrote.
In a fiery address from Philadelphia, Biden said, “It’s in our hands, yours and mine, to stop the assault on American democracy” adding that “I believe America is at an inflection point, one of those moments that determine the shape of everything that’s to come after.”
“Donald Trump and the Maga Republicans represent an extremism that threatens the very foundations of our Republic,” Biden stressed.
"MAGA forces are determined to take this country backwards. Backwards to an America where there is no right to choose, no right to privacy, no right to contraception, no right to marry who you love," he stated.
Trump highlighted that in Biden’s “awkward and angry” speech, the US president essentially threatened the US with the potential use of military force, to which he responded that “He must be insane, or suffering from late stage dementia!"
The US president has broken his promise to attempt to bring the country together, claimed a number of MAGA and Republican leaders who spoke out against Biden's remarks in his Thursday speech, in which he decided to attack the opposition by dubbing MAGA philosophy "semi-fascism."
GOP House majority leader Kevin McCarthy tweeted that "Instead of trying to bring our country together to solve the MANY problems he has created, President Biden has chosen to divide, demean, and disparage his fellow Americans—simply because they disagree with his policies.”

Furthermore, Georgia congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene shared a video that compares Biden’s latest speech to Adolf Hitler, suggesting that Biden’s managers have decided to use “Hitler imagery” to make the “frail, weak, and dementia ridden” US leader look “tough.”

I guess when President Butterbeans is frail, weak, and dementia ridden, the Hitler imagery was their attempt to make him look “tough” while he declares war on half of America as enemies of the state.
Or it’s real..
Inevitable civil war looms on the horizon
This comes as Americans are feeling quite pessimistic about the future of the country, with almost half of them thinking that a civil war could break out soon.
More than two-fifths of US citizens consider a civil war inevitable in the next 10 years, a figure that rises to more than half among self-identified "strong Republicans."
The findings of YouGov and the Economist research follow similar results in previous polls.
US Senator Lindsey Graham warned on Sunday of "riots in the streets" if former US President Trump faces charges over his handling of documents found when the FBI searched his Mar-a-Lago home.
Eyeing the US' long history of political violence and assassination, current rising radicalism and fighting words increase jagged political division and explicitly warn of inevitable political violence.
