Joe Biden: Jan. 6 was “Worst Attack on Our Democracy Since the Civil War”

Worse than the 9-11 attack?
The Biden administration released excerpts from his speech tonight to a joint session of Congress.
Joe Biden describes January 6th as the “worst attack on our democracy since the Civil War.

As I stand here tonight, we are just one day shy of the 100th day of my administration.
100 days since I took the oath of office—lifted my hand off our family Bible—and inherited a nation in crisis. The worst pandemic in a century. The worst economic crisis since the Great Depression. The worst attack on our democracy since the Civil War.

Worse than the 9-11 attacks?
Worse than Pearl Harbor?
The only person murdered in the January 6th was Trump supporter and veteran Ashli Babbitt.
