Watch: Biden Calls 'MAGA Crowd' the 'Most Extreme Political Organization That's Existed' in US History

Share

President Joe Biden is arguing that people who subscribe to the Make America Great Again (MAGA) agenda make up the “most extreme political organization” in the history of the country.

“What happens if you have [a] state change the law saying that children who are LGBTQ can’t be in classrooms with other children? Is that legit under the way the decision’s written? What are the next things that are going to be attacked?” he asked.

The president’s comments refer to a leaked draft of a Supreme Court opinion that appeared to show it is poised to overturn the landmark Roe v. Wade decision.

“This MAGA crowd is really the most extreme political organization that’s existed in American history,” he claimed.

At a separate point, he took aim at an 11-point plan laid out by Sen. Rick Scott (R-Fla.) that created a vision for what Republicans would do if they regain control of Congress.

“Senator Rick Scott of Florida…released what he calls ‘the ultra MAGA agenda,” Biden said.

He continued, “It’s a MAGA agenda, alright. Let me tell you about this ‘ultra MAGA agenda.’ It’s extreme, as most MAGA things are.”

Do you think there have been more extreme organizations?

Biden also ripped into the draft opinion and called it “radical” on Tuesday.

The president was asked if he believes the leak “has irreparably changed the court.”

“Well, you know, if this decision holds, it’s really a radical decision,” Biden responded.

He continued, “The underlying premise — and again I’ve not had a chance to thoroughly go into the decision — but it basically says all the decisions relating to your private life — who you marry, whether or not you decide to conceive a child or not, whether or not you can have an abortion, a range of other decisions, how you raise your child — what does this do?”

“Does this mean that in Florida, they can decide they’re going to pass a law saying that same-sex marriage is not permissible? It’s against the law in Florida. So, it’s a fundamental shift in American jurisprudence,” Biden added.
