Biden Attacks Trump

Joe Biden

( – Joe Biden attacked former President Donald Trump at a fundraiser in Greenwich, Connecticut, for being convicted by a Manhattan jury on 34 felony counts.

Speaking at the fundraiser, Biden claimed that Trump wanted America to believe that both the judiciary and election system were rigged.

“It’s reckless and dangerous and downright irresponsible for anyone to say that it’s rigged just because you don’t like the verdict,” Biden said, echoing comments he made in reaction to the verdict at the White House last week.

He added the justice system was a core of American democracy and “we should never allow anyone to tear it down.”

Trump, who is likely to run against Biden in the next election, was convicted on all counts for some payments he made to Michael Cohen legal expenses back in August 2017. Trump slammed the verdict as politically motivated and blamed Biden.

Biden noted that Trump’s was a state case rather than a federal one, was heard by a jury chosen the same way all juries nationwide are chosen, and featured five weeks of evidence. He said the verdict was unanimous, and Trump could appeal.

But Biden went farther and accused Trump of equating the justice system and elections. He said the former president was “attacking both the judiciary and elections system as rigged.”

Looking ahead, Biden warned that Trump’s second term, if it happens, could be even worse than the first. He claimed Trump’s behavior has gotten even more extreme since he lost the last election.

Moreover, Biden was at a fundraiser hosted by Richard Plepler, the former CEO of HBO, and rubbing elbows with Shonda Rhimes, who created such television smashes as “Bridgerton,” “Scandal and “Grey’s Anatomy.”

“Something snapped in this guy — for real — when he lost in 2020,” Biden stated, suggesting the former president was “unhinged” and was the driving force behind a mob of his supporters overrunning the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021.

“He can’t accept the fact that he lost, it’s literally driving him crazy,” Biden continued.

He added that Trump “wants to terminate the Constitution” and “says if he loses there will be a bloodbath in America.”

“What kind of man is this?” Biden asked.
