Former Vice President Joe Biden joined other misguided critics in condemning President Trump’s response to the violent riots across from the White House and in cities nationwide (RELATED: Anti-Police Protests in D.C. Turn Violent [VIDEO]). They have also savaged Trump for threatening to invoke the ‘Insurrection Act’ to employ federal troops to help quell the chaos in D.C. and other American cities.
Many screamed falsely that invoking the Act would be unconstitutional. Most ignore that President George H.W. Bush legally invoked the Insurrection Act to send U.S. troops to California to quell riots in Los Angeles in 1992, and the Constitution remained intact.
It is clear Biden does not believe U.S. troops should be used to help protect life and property in riot-torn U.S. cities, but apparently he does believe the U.S. military should be used to remove a U.S. President.
In a bizarre and dangerous interview, Biden advocates for the U.S. military to remove Trump from office in the absurd scenario that Trump refuses to leave office.
According to NBC News, when Biden was asked the question by The Daily Show’s Trevor Noah whether he’s thought about what would happen if he (Biden) wins the election but Trump decides not to leave the White House, Biden responded:
“Yes I have.” After mentioning the retired flag-rank military officers who spoke out about Trump’s response to the protests last week, Biden added — “I promise you, I’m absolutely convinced they will escort him from the White House with great dispatch.”
So, to be clear — Biden is against using U.S. troops to protect American citizens from violent chaos in American cities but expects U.S. troops — not law enforcement — or other legal and means — to be used unconstitutionally to forcibly remove a U.S. President from the White House if he absurdly refused to leave.
Where is the outrage? Where are the breathless news headlines condemning Biden? Most importantly, where are the retired generals and admirals screaming about Trump’s threat to the Constitution when the Democratic Party nominee for the presidency of the United States just advocated Banana Republic military tactics to remove his opponent from office?
So far — all the “concerned” retired generals and admirals who condemned and undermined the sitting lawful Commander in Chief — Donald Trump — are staying very quiet on Democratic presidential nominee — Joe Biden’s — outrageous and dangerous remarks.
