CNN senior political analyst John Avlon took to the air to drop some truth bombs on President Biden for his recent speech reaming Republicans, calling them fascists.
“Avlon said Tuesday on ‘New Day’ that President Joe Biden calling MAGA Republicans semi-fascist is ‘not befitting the office of president,'” reported Breitbart.
Senator Maggie Hassan, a Democrat from New Hampshire, said that Biden “painted with way too broad a brush” with the semi-fascism remarks.

Ashley Allison, network political commentator said, “Joe Biden’s campaign was about saving the soul of our nation, and we’re in a very dangerous moment around democracy. I also want to put context into what the president said. He did not call half of America fascist. He said people who believe that the 2020 election was stolen, people who want to ban books, people who are taking these steps. We’re on a very dangerous line.”
The discussion continued, with Avlon and more commentators speaking out about the president’s ill-spoken remarks.
Avlon added, “The term semi-fascist is not helpful. It’s not befitting the office of president. While you can absolutely call out the dangers to our democracy — but it makes perfect sense for someone like Sen. Hassan because, look, in New Hampshire, more than 40 percent of registered voters are Independent, another 30 and change are Republican. Democrats are the third category among registered voters. So, she needs to be able to reach out, and that language doesn’t help her do that.”
Alice Stewart, network political commentator, said, “You can parse it how you want, but that’s the takeaway. Maggie Hassan was right. He painted the Republican Party as a bunch of fascists.”
