After Joe Biden declared Wednesday that “MAGA is the most extreme political organization” in US history, reporters questioned White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki if Americans should expect that kind of rhetoric to continue, and she said yes.
CNN reporter Kaitlan Collins noted that Biden “was sharply critical of the MAGA crowd,” asking Psaki “is that what we should expect to speak his message going into the midterms?”
Psaki responded, “I would expect you will hear” more of this rhetoric from Biden “over the next coming months.”

When another reporter asked a similar question, noting how divisive the language is, Psaki responded “I think the president will be judged by Americans by his actions.”
Q: “The ‘MAGA Crowd’ is…almost half the people who voted in 2020. Does the president feel he could’ve done more early on to reach out to those people?”

Fox News White House Correspondent Peter Doocy noted that Biden also claimed that Republicans might use the overturning of Roe vs Wade segregate LGBTQ children from the other children in classrooms.
