President Joe Biden had strong words for people questioning the seriousness of the January 6 Capitol insurrection.
“I don’t care if you think I’m Satan reincarnated. The fact is you can’t look at that television and say nothing happened on the 6th and listen to people who say this was a peaceful march,” said US President Biden on Wednesday at a CNN town hall in Cincinnati, Ohio.
Biden was responding to moderator Don Lemon’s question on whether he had confidence Republicans and Democrats could work together, given that the two sides were having trouble bridging the bipartisan divide in investigating the Capitol insurrection, per AP.
A 13-member committee — including Democrats and Republicans — was mooted last month to investigate the attack on the US Capitol on January 6 that killed five people when Trump supporters stormed the building.
