Rep. Andy Biggs Slams Democrats Over Never Ending ‘Demonization’ Of Trump
Rep. Andy Biggs, a Republican from Arizona, stated during an interview that it fits the narrative of the Democrats for President Joe Biden to place the blame for the events that transpired on Jan. 6, 2021 on the shoulders of former President Donald Trump, however, by taking that course of action, they are also continuing forward with the demonization they started of him way back when he first announced he would be running for president.
“When they’re constructing their narrative, they’re trying to set up a demon, and that’s Donald Trump,” Biggs went on to say during an appearance on Saturday’s “The Count.” “It goes back to before he was ever elected, when they came down those big escalators, that they’ve been trying to demonize this guy.”
The select committee investigating Jan. 6 is also part of the plan, Biggs continued, pointing out the group set up by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., has already shifted its focus.
At first, the committee wanted to go after Trump on charges of incitement of an insurrection, but that has shifted to blaming him for not speaking soon enough to stop the people interrupting Congress, “so that somehow is his fault,” Biggs said.
Meanwhile, more than 700 people have been charged in the incidents, but none are charged with insurrection and “nobody should be charged” for that, Biggs added.
“Their narrative is to try to say that Donald Trump was responsible for every bad thing that has ever happened in America, but particularly the violent people who got into the Capitol on Jan. 6,” Biggs stated.
Biggs also referred to Vice President Kamala Harris’ comments on the Capitol riots “reprehensible, particularly when she compared the incidents to other momentous times in U.S. history, such as the 1941 Pearl Harbor attack and the 9/11 attacks.”
“[Her] words were just so out of bounds,” Biggs stated in conclusion. “There is no comparison at all.”
“This is in no way indicative of the war on terror that was engendered by 9/11 that cost thousands of U.S. lives and other lives around the world, or the World War II Pearl Harbor attack,” the congressman said.
