Tulsi Gabbard Accuses Joe Biden of Smearing Working Americans
'Biden promised to unite us, but he is doing all he can do divide us'
Former Democrat presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard said Joe Biden’s vile characterization of Americans who disagree with his agenda is worse than Hillary Clinton’s infamous “basket of deplorables” slur.
Though Clinton’s insult was disgusting and probably cost her the election, Biden stooped to a new low by suggesting that dissidents are terrorists and racists.
Biden promised to unite Americans not so long ago, but since he took office, he has been doing the exact opposite, Gabbard said.
“Hillary’s calling tens of millions of Americans deplorable was divisive & disgusting," Gabbard said.
"But Biden has gone further, calling those who disagree with his actions & policies domestic enemies, traitors, and racists,” Gabbard added.
“Biden promised to unite us, but he is doing all he can do divide us,” Gabbard stated.
Biden didn’t spare Trump’s “followers” or even Republicans during his January 6 speech last week.
He said “too many” Republicans are “transforming the party” by supporting “a single man.”

“They seem no longer to want to be the Party of Lincoln, Eisenhower, Reagan, the Bushes,” Biden said.
Biden also said those opposing his partisan voting rights bills are segregationists, racists, and Confederates.
Hillary Clinton famously said in 2016 that Trump supporters were “basket of deplorables”:
“You know, to just be grossly generalistic, you could put half of Trump’s supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables. Right?” Clinton said.
“The racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic—you name it.”
"And unfortunately, there are people like that. And he has lifted them up,” she said.
Clinton later expressed regret over her statement.
She said she was being “grossly generalistic” but expressed regret for “saying ‘half,’” adding: “That was wrong.”
But she also added that "many of Trump’s supporters are hard-working Americans who just don’t feel like the economy or our political system are working for them.”
