Joe Biden was playing with fire.
Sitting in the Oval Office, Biden made a direct threat that could have led to all hell breaking loose.
Joe Biden put out this call that could lead to civil war.
On the second day of jury deliberations in the Derek Chauvin trial in the death of George Floyd, Joe Biden threw a lit match on a tinderbox.
Speaking in the Oval Office—a fully vaccinated but still masked—Joe Biden called the evidence against Chauvin “overwhelming” and declared he was praying for a correct—by that he meant guilty—verdict.
“I’m praying the verdict is the right verdict. Which is – I think it’s overwhelming in my view,” Biden claimed.
No one could believe what they heard.
The sitting President of the United States essentially threatened the city of Minneapolis with riots from left-wing mobs and militias if the jurors did not reach the verdict Biden demanded.
Biden’s comments came on the same day that a local newspaper published biographical details of the jurors making it easy to identify who they were, slapping a bullseye on their backs so rioters knew who to target in the event of an acquittal.
These comments came one day after Judge Peter Cahill rebuked Maxine Waters’ call for insurrection telling the defense that Waters’ comments were grounds to have a conviction thrown out on appeal.
Judge Cahill also begged elected officials to stop intimidating and threatening the jury with their public demands and ultimatums.
In the White House press briefing, reporters gripped press secretary Jen Psaki about Biden trying to bully the jurors into convicting Officer Chauvin under the threat of liberal mobs burning their city to the ground.
“He’s certainly not looking to influence,” Psaki claimed.
Psaki falsely claimed Biden wanted to leave the decision in the jury’s hands and that Biden was not making any kind of prediction about what he wanted to see.
“We’re not trying to provide greater information about predictions of a verdict, we want to leave that to a jury,” Psaki added.
Psaki explained that Biden issued his threat after speaking with George Floyd’s family claiming he“was obviously impacted by his conversation by the Floyd family yesterday as somebody who has lived through loss and trauma himself.”
At the end of the day the jury convicted Officer Chauvin on the counts of second-degree murder, third-degree murder, and manslaughter.
But many Americans question the verdict in the light of the rampaging riots from last summer and the comments by Joe Biden and Maxine Waters that hinted that a violent and bloody replay of 2020 would unfold should the jury acquit Officer Derek Chauvin.
