Joe Biden ribs Republicans with deadpan response to ‘socialism’ slam

On Friday, President Joe Biden called out and mocked conservative Republicans who called his infrastructure program “socialist” and voted against it – but have since asked his administration for grants.

“I had no idea there were so many socialist Republicans,” Biden said deadpan during a speech at a Volvo plant in Hagerstown, Maryland.

Biden, citing a CNN report, noted how Rep. Paul Gosar (R-Arizona), Rep. Andy Barr (R-Ky.) and Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) were among many Republicans to blast the program. in public – but we are now asking him for money to fund projects in their districts.

“Guys, look, you can’t make this stuff up. You have to say, and I have to say, I was surprised to see so many socialists in the Republican caucus,” Biden cracked.

He then warned, “If Republicans take control of Congress, these historic victories we just won for the American people will be undone.

Republicans have tried to take credit for funding they voted against before, such as COVID-19 relief legislation.
