Joe Biden has triggered a fierce backlash for referring to the January 6 Capitol Hill riot as "the worst attack on our democracy since the Civil War" in his address to Congress.

Biden was slammed by conservatives Wednesday over his polarizing remarks that belittle presidential assassinations and major attacks such as 9/11 and Pearl Harbor.

On Wednesday night, the White House released an excerpt from Biden’s speech to a joint session of Congress that included the comment.

"100 days since I took the oath of office, lifted my hand off our family Bible, and inherited a nation, we all did, that was in crisis,” Biden said in his speech.

“The worst pandemic in a century," he adds.

"The worst economic crisis since the Great Depression. The worst attack on our democracy since the Civil War.”

WATCH:

The excerpt was released shortly before Biden made the speech before Congress.

The comment generated immediate pushback from many social media users, who pointed out a variety of national tragedies that have taken place since the Civil War, including the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

“Biden asserts riot was a worse attack than various bombings and deadly attacks on the Capitol, deadly Summer of Rage with its attacks on the WH and federal court buildings, four presidential assassinations, another five assassination attempts, Pearl Harbor, and 9/11,” Federalist senior editor Mollie Hemingway tweeted. “OK.”

"Left wing terrorists literally detonated a bomb in the US capitol in 1983 and one of them was later granted clemency by Bill Clinton," journalist Jon Levine tweeted.

Professor Andy Grewal pointed out that four U.S. presidents have been murdered since the end of the Civil War.

Others wondered aloud why the devastating attack on Pearl Harbor carried out by Japan was overlooked.

“I was at SEAL training in Coronado when Al Qaeda took down the Twin Towers on 9/11Over 3,000 Americans died that day,” Republican Senate candidate Eric Greitens tweeted.

“Thousands more died in the Global War on Terror that followed. Joe Biden forgets their sacrifice.”

Biden addressed Congress at 9 p.m. EST in a speech that highlighting spending package proposals as well as his plan to address the economic devastation caused by the coronavirus.
