President Joe Biden has always refrained from attacking the Supreme Court as a whole, though he has made negative remarks about certain cases. This time, in the wake of the Dobbs ruling, that all changed.
Since Friday, Biden has made unprecedented comments regarding the Dobbs decision that resulted in the overturning of Roe v. Wade, which returns abortion decisions back to the states, where it has always belonged. Democrats are now pressuring the president to take drastic action, as Politico reported.
“With this decision, a conservative majority of the Supreme Court shows how extreme it is, how far removed they are from the majority of this country. It made the United States an outlier among developed nations in the world,” Biden said in an address following the decision.
The president made a number of additional asinine remarks, even showing his lingering Trump Derangement Syndrome symptoms by making sure to blame the three justices appointed by his predecessor as being primarily responsible for the decision.
Nice try, Joe
Included in his faux angry speech was his insistence that this SCOTUS decision immediately rises to the top of the political priority list, assuring those watching that the issue will dominate the ballot in November.
“This fall, Roe is on the ballot. Personal freedoms are on the ballot,” Biden proclaimed.

Except, it won’t be. Biden was dragged on social media by thousands of commenters who know that the only issues on the ballot this November will be grocery store and gas pump prices — and probably things like baby formula and tampon shortages.
Critics pointed out that Democrats will milk the overturning of Roe until it’s dry, in a desperate attempt to distract from how badly they’re destroying America on a policy level.
Pelosi rips justices
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) joined in on spreading dramatic lies about Friday’s landmark decision, even suggesting that Trump’s three SCOTUS picks are Republican “politicians,” while also accusing Trump of “packing” the high court.

Protests erupted on Friday evening after the decision was handed down, and continued over the weekend, though there haven’t been any widespread reports of rioting or looting.
