Trump World had a massive meltdown after President Joe Biden denounced “MAGA Republicans” as extremists in a speech in Philadelphia earlier this week. But a 2020 video clip has surfaced showing Donald Trump calling Democrats – wait for it – fascists.
“Donald Trump and the MAGA Republicans represent an extremism that threatens the very foundations of our republic,” said Biden in his speech in Philadelphia this week.
“Now, I want to be very clear – very clear up front: Not every Republican, not even the majority of Republicans, are MAGA Republicans,” Biden added. “Not every Republican embraces their extreme ideology.”
In a speech at a private event last week, Biden also used the phrase “semi-fascism” to describe the MAGA philosophy.
Republicans and conservative pundits have wet their diapers over Biden’s remarks saying the comment unfairly characterizes GOP voters. Right-wingers predictably called Biden’s speech as “divisive.”
And yet – a video clip has surfaced of Trump speaking in Minnesota in 2020 claiming Democrats want to “replace American freedom with left-wing fascism.”
“Fascists – they are fascists,” he added. “Some of them, not all of them. But some of them, but they’re getting closer and closer.”
It seems there’s always a video, no?
1/2: In 2020, Trump called Democrats “fascists” in ’20 while surrounded by military officials.
No one remembers it bc Dems didn’t feel threatened by his false claim.
Today, MAGA Republicans are angry at President Biden for a similar remark. Because they know it’s true. pic.twitter.com/ran6LASOys

In fairness, Donald said “fash-shism” which is a word only bartenders would recognize.

Of course, MAGA World would never call their political opponents “fascists” – or would they?
Fox and the Republicans are losing their minds over Joe Biden calling MAGA “semi-fascist.”
But they’d never call their political opponents “fascists,” right? Right??
You’ll be shocked, shocked I tell you! Roll the tape:pic.twitter.com/lIEiRdjqT7
