JD Vance wildly suggests Biden is trying to ‘kill a bunch of MAGA voters’

Ohio Senate candidate JD Vance has leveled a bizarre new accusation against Joe Biden, suggesting the president is trying to “kill” MAGA voters with fentanyl sold by drug dealers.

“If you wanted to kill a bunch of MAGA voters in the middle of the nation’s heartland, what better way to target them and their children with this deadly fentanyl?” the controversial candidate insisted in an interview Friday with Jim Hoft, founder of the far-right Gateway Pundit news site.

The venture capitalist and author of “Hillbilly Elegy,” which was endorsed earlier this month by Donald Trump, did not explain how Biden could achieve such a gruesome goal. But he implied that drug traffickers crossing into the United States from Mexico were expressly not being arrested so they could kill right-wing Republican voters.

“It’s really a border crisis that has spread across the country,” Vance said. “It seems intentional,” he pointed out. “It’s like Joe Biden wants to punish people who didn’t vote for him, and opening the floodgates at the border is one way to do that.”

In fact, the amount of cocaine and fentanyl seized at the border at eight Texas ports of entry increased “significantly” last year under the Biden administration, keeping massive amounts of the drug out of the country, according to the United States Department of Customs and Borders. Protection.

“Particularly [there was] a 1,066% increase in fentanyl and a 98% increase in seized cocaine,” CBP reported.

Trump has encouraged his supporters to support Vance, who has no political experience, saying he has the best chance of winning the general election. The primary is May 3.

While welcoming the former president’s endorsement, Vance has in the past reportedly called Trump an “idiot” and “America’s Hitler.”

Critics on Twitter were appalled by Vance’s outrageous statement. They were also furious at the implication that MAGA voters are fentanyl users, while Democrats are apparently largely unaffected by Biden’s ridiculous “plot” that Vance concocted.
