GOP Consultant Says Biden’s Anti-MAGA Speech Made Her Cry, Gave Her Hope


A GOP strategist said she was moved to tears by President Joe Biden’s recent speech condemning extremist election-denying Republicans for the risks they pose to American democracy.

“Every part feels really dark. Really heavy. We’re in uncharted territory,” Rina Shah told MSNBC on Saturday, citing the invention of classified documents at former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate. “We’re in [an] absolutely unbelievable moment right away, where we’ve got a one that desires to hijack the country for his own gain.”

“So what I heard from Joe Biden last night gave me tremendous hope,” she continued. “Actually, to be very honest with you, it made me cry like a toddler. Since it jogged my memory of my late father, who got here to America in 1970 and my mother, who got here in 1980. And as a daughter of those two immigrants, who was raised to imagine within the goodness of America, not only as an idea, but I used to be raised to imagine within the goodness of American people.”

“I used to be told by my parents that Americans are inherently good. By virtue, they’re accepting people. My, how far we’ve come away from that.”

“So what I heard from Joe Biden was, again: There are particular Americans amongst us who’ve been radicalized and are extremists. And it’s as much as each certainly one of us not simply to be vigilant and to ward off but to take a complete recent responsibility.”

In his prime-time address from Philadelphia on Friday, Biden called on Americans to defend against extremist Republicans and Trump supporters who’ve attacked law enforcement, sought to delegitimize election results and undermined the nation’s electoral process.

“For a very long time, we’ve reassured ourselves that American democracy is guaranteed. But it surely is just not. We now have to defend it. Protect it. Get up for it. Every certainly one of us,” Biden warned.

“MAGA Republicans don’t respect the Structure. They don’t imagine within the rule of law. They don’t recognize the need of the people, refuse to simply accept the outcomes of a free election.”

Biden acknowledged that not every Republican embraces this extreme ideology but said there was “absolute confidence” that the fashionable GOP is dominated and intimidated by Trump and his base.

Many Republicans have slammed Biden’s rhetoric as divisive, including Trump himself, who called it probably the most “vicious, hateful, and divisive speech ever delivered by an American president.
