When Joe Biden got into the White House, he put out a lot of talking points about “unity” and the importance of the nation collectively coming together. However, the president repeatedly fails to live up to his own rhetoric.
During debates over whether or not the Senate filibuster should remain in effect, Biden claimed that GOP supporters of the filibuster were similar to segregationists of the past.
The president’s also repeatedly stated there’s no legitimate future for the Republican Party and it may not be around in the years to come.
Now, Biden’s gone on record, confirming in his own words that he doesn’t have any respect for “MAGA Republicans, as documented by Breitbart News.
Biden on MAGA Republicans
During a Maryland event for the Democratic National Committee, Biden claimed that while he holds respect for “conservative Republicans,” this does not extend to “MAGA Republicans.”
In the president’s own words, he declared “MAGA Republicans” endanger US democracy, deny climate change, and embrace a brand of politics that’s in favor of “burning it all down.”

After making these claims, Biden then expressed the American people need to vote for Democrats in the midterm elections for the sake of ensuring democracy survives. To drive this point home, the president declared his comments were “not hyperbole.”
During his time in Maryland, Biden likewise revealed that he doesn’t believe very many “real” GOP members exist anymore.
Pushback From Trump Supporters
Americans who support former President Trump didn’t mince words in sharing their own views about the current president.
Trump supporters expressed that they, too, don’t hold any respect for the current president. Biden was slammed for the way he’s governed and the way he got into the White House, to begin with.
Biden’s also come under fire from Trump supporters, due to his heavy spending that critics warn will worsen economic problems. Just earlier this week, Biden announced waiving $10,000 to $20,000 per individual who owns student loan debt.

Good. It’s mutual, because

b. You stole the office
c. China owns youpic.twitter.com/yqV0HggQcX

Conservatives warned this is passing the bill to everyday taxpayers, many of whom didn’t even attend college or have already paid off their loans. The inflationary impacts that this new measure will have also remain heavily condemned by America’s Trump supporters.
At this point, it’s safe to say that many people who support the 45th president aren’t too concerned about getting in the good graces of Biden.
However, these latest comments about “MAGA Republicans” certainly confirm the president isn’t even trying to care about unity and bringing people together anymore.
