Biden to 'racist' Trump voters: 'Let's heal'

Larry Elder on

After four years of attacking President Donald Trump as "illegitimate," "fascist," "Nazi," "tyrant," "dictator," "racist," "anti-Semitic," "Russian stooge," "traitor," "grifter," "xenophobe," "sexist," "homophobe," "ignorant," "fat" and "lazy," Former Vice President Joe Biden, the presumptive president-elect, now says, "Let's heal."

In his "victory speech," Biden said: "And to those who voted for President Trump, I understand your disappointment tonight.

"I've lost a couple of elections myself. But now, let's give each other a chance.

"It's time to put away the harsh rhetoric. To lower the temperature. To see each other again. To listen to each other again.

"To make progress, we must stop treating our opponents as our enemy. We are not enemies. We are Americans.

"The Bible tells us that to everything there is a season -- a time to build, a time to reap, a time to sow. And a time to heal.

 

"This is the time to heal in America."

Well, that's lovely. But please forgive Trump supporters for not being in a mood to "heal." How bogus was the Trump-Russia collusion investigation that consumed most of the Trump presidency? Neither Joe Biden nor Kamala Harris bothered to mention it during the campaign. Ditto for Trump's impeachment. Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and former FBI Director James Comey now admit that, knowing then what they know now, they would not have signed off on FISA warrants that were crucial to the investigation.

National Review wrote: "Former Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein testified to Congress on Wednesday that he would not have signed off on a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act warrant renewal to spy on former Trump campaign associate Carter Page had he been aware then of the unreliability of the underlying evidence.

"'If you knew then what you know now, would you have signed the application?' Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham asked Rosenstein during his testimony.
