CNN Anchor Brianna Keilar slammed the White House for its portrayal of Marines at Joe Biden’s speech where he criminalized 70 million Americans, The Daily Caller reports.
Keilar took to Twitter to express her disdain:
Whatever you think of this speech the military is supposed to be apolitical. Positioning Marines in uniform behind President Biden for a political speech flies in the face of that. It’s wrong when Democrats do it. It’s wrong when Republicans do it.

The White House, which apparently listened to Twitter to determine that the speech was a good idea fired back.
Deputy Press Secretary Andrew Bates stood up for the treachery:
Except it's not political. In the same way CNN isn't political but has made the same warnings.

Biden used the speech to attack supporters of Donald Trump calling Republicans “extremists.”
Biden said, “Too much of what’s happening in our country today is not normal… Donald Trump and the MAGA Republicans represent an extremism that threatens the very foundation of our republic.”
The odds are greatly in favor of those Marines being Conservative
It seems that Biden and all who support him, including close members of my family, are the extremists here.
Denigrating millions of Americans with the Marines posed behind this failed president is political. Again this continues the chain of lying and deceit is classic for this clown. He is not fit to represent Americans
I agree with the above comments. Everything he has accused MAGA Republicans of is the very thing this idiot and all Democrats are currently doing,
Biden showed himself to be a demented, totally disorientated person who has no idea of reality, who did not remember what he was saying from one word to the next. He couldn’t finish a sentence. This will come back to bite him just as everything he does comes back. He needs to go ASAP.
If he is impeached, would Harris be any better? NO
An attack on 74+ million Americans because they do not support Joe’s party, or agenda is purely political in nature. Those who say otherwise, are also being political. That speech served no other purpose but to denigrate the opposition pending the midterms.
It’s really ashamed that we, and the rest of the world, has to watch while this senile old man makes a fool of himself on TV. The only thing that is a threat to our republic are the left wing democrats. They are the ones destroying our republic so they can install their version of a socialist government. Unless we purge all of the democrats from our government, at all levels, they will accomplish their mission.
RE: WH staff responses
Nobody could see or hear the laughter as they were typed/sent.
Look at almost any tyrant and you will see him/her/it sporting a military uniform!! They dress themselves up as Generals because they are trying to convince people (including themselves) that they are powerful creatures!!
In this case Brandon couldn’t show up in military garb without creating a firestorm so… some behind-the-scenes puppeteer/tyrant went “next-best-thing” and put the Marines in hoping to have the power thing rub off on Brandon!!!
Being the parent of several career military personnel, I can assure you that the Marines FORCED to do this duty were not happy. The military, with a few exceptions, are about the most conservative group in the United States. It’s only reasonable that conservatives are the ones who don the uniform to protect this nation because they care about the nation not wokism.
