Let’s just start out by saying that Joe Biden’s speech today was not as outright terrible as it could have been. He even managed to deliver his remarks largely coherently, which is legitimately refreshing. And, unlike Kamala Harris, he didn’t compare January 6 to Pearl Harbor or 9/11, so that’s good.
But if you’re worried that we’re going to sit here and fawn over it, no need to fret. Because this line alone is enough to make your eyes roll right out of your head:
Biden: "You can't love your country only when you win."

He actually said it. With a straight face and everything:
Biden: "You can't love your country only when you win. You can't obey the law only when it is convenient. You can't be patriotic when you embrace and enable lies." pic.twitter.com/07aAAzQL28

Sorry, Joe. But we can’t let this one slide.
And we’re not going to.
It's almost as if you have zero recollection of Trump's 4 years in office as you cried like a petulant child

The lack of self awareness here is astounding.
