Joe Biden dedicated some of his speech to attacking his predecessor for falsely claiming that the 2020 election was illegitimate. And indeed, Donald Trump was wrong to push that narrative.
What Biden left out of his speech, though, was that he himself had at least once gladly indulged the notion that the 2016 election was rigged by Russia and that Donald Trump was an illegitimate president.

That sentiment was shared by none other than Biden’s illustrious second banana Kamala Harris:

This is part of the problem. Not the whole problem, because 1/6 was far worse; but Dems have never come to terms with how they made the slippery slope more slippery. https://t.co/zGJQn7Ncfv
