Biden Calls MAGA Supporters ‘The Most Extreme Political Organization’ In ‘Recent American History’

The Biden administration has also criticized Florida for its “Parental Rights in Education” bill that prohibits classroom discussion of sexual orientation and gender identity in K-3 classrooms, and Texas for investigating possible child abuse in the homes of transgender children taking hormone therapies and puberty blockers.

President Joe Biden told reporters during Wednesday remarks that supporters and politicians associated with former President Donald Trump are the “most extreme political organization” in the nation’s recent history.

A reporter asked the president about the Supreme Court draft majority opinion that could reportedly overturn Roe v. Wade. Biden argued the opposers of abortion, mainly Republicans, are stripping Americans of the precedented, inherent right to privacy, mentioning the 1965 decision Griswold v. Connecticut.

“This reminds me of the debate with Robert Bork. Bork believed the only reason you had any inherent rights is because the government gave them to you,” he said. “If you go back and look at the opening comments when I was questioning him as chairman, I said, ‘I believe I have the rights that I have not because the government gave them to me, which you believe, but because I’m just a child of God, I exist.’”
