Turley Blast Biden Democracy Speech 

Daily Report January 06,2024

Fox News Legal analyst and George Washington University law professor Jonathan Turley blasted President Joe Biden’s speech about democracy, adding that the speech seemed conflicting.

Joe Biden, during a Friday speech, claimed former President Donald Trump has promised an assault on democracy. The president claimed that, unlike Trump, defending democracy was a “central cause” of his administration.

Turley, while speaking on Fox News, blasted the president’s democracy comments, adding that Biden’s party was the one trying to strip ballots of Donald Trump’s name.

“He lost me in the specifics,” Turley told Fox News host Martha MacCallum. “He talks about democracy being on the ballot but the ballot isn’t very democratic, his own party is trying to strip ballots of Donald Trump’s name to prevent people who want to vote for what appears to be the leading candidate for the presidency from doing that. So when he’s talking about the freedom to vote and have your vote count, his party is actively trying to prevent that and saying, really, you’re not just voting for me, just think you’re voting for democracy. For those people, they really feel like, if we vote for you, do we get democracy back next time? Are we going to have all of the candidates on the ballot? I don’t think that effort will succeed.”

Turley blasted the president for his Freedom of Speech Comments, maintaining that the Biden administration was the most anti-free speech administration he has ever written about.

“It’s worth noting when he talks about the freedom of speech, the Biden administration I have written before, is the most anti-free-speech administration since the administration of John Adams,” Turley added. “I mean, his administration has carried out what a federal court called an Orwellian censorship program with the help of social media companies. Part of the speech was, in fact uplifting, but then when you got down to the details, it seemed rather conflicting for this president,”
