The former First Son wrote, “Happy Fake Insurrection Day!!!” He added, “The first ever insurrection with armed tour guides and unarmed participants! I do hope that it was the start of something real though, where people realize that their government is not what they thought it to be and unite to take back their country!!”

On January 6, Trump also spoke about the riots and stated, “They ought to release the J6 hostages. They’ve suffered.” He continued by urging the president to free them, “I call them hostages. Some people call them prisoners. I call them hostages. Release the J6 hostages, Joe. Release them, Joe. You can do it real easy, Joe.”

In a 30-minute speech, the president warned, “Donald Trump’s campaign is obsessed with the past, not the future. He’s willing to sacrifice democracy to put himself in power.”

A former D.C. officer, who was attacked during the riots, asked the president to fight harder for democracy. Michael Fanone said on MSNBC, “I think it’s an all-hands-on-deck effort to make sure that Donald Trump doesn’t assume the presidency in 2024.” He added, “We all know what that’s gonna look like, he’s told us as much.”

The former officer Fanone added, “I’ve gotta point out some of the disappointments I’ve had over the past three years.” He explained, “Where’s the outrage on behalf of the current administration? You know, I give credit. Joe Biden has given some fiery speeches concerning MAGA and its effort to overturn a free and fair election. But that’s something that this country needs to hear every single day, specifically younger people, young voters.”

The Pennsylvania speech marks the first campaign speech for the POTUS, and he was visibly excited. Biden told the crowd, “The legal path just took Trump back to the truth. That I’d won the election, and he was a loser.”

“Trump lost 60 court cases — 60. Trump lost the Republican-controlled states; Trump lost before a Trump-appointed judge and then judges. And Trump lost before the United States Supreme Court. All of them. He lost. Trump lost recount after recount after recount and state after state,” Biden reminded his supporters.

The president also reminded the audience how MAGA crowds treated then-Vice President Pence and then-House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. Biden said, “He talks about an intruder, whipped up by the big Trump lie, taking a hammer to Paul Pelosi’s skull, echoing the very same words used on Jan. 6, ‘Where’s Nancy?’ And he thinks that’s funny, he laughed about it. What a sick….” Biden stopped his fiery speech to avoid an expletive but continued, “I think it’s despicable, seriously, not just for a president, for any person to say.”
