Joe Biden and the Democrats must tread lightly before they begin to abandon the ‘Defund the Police’ movement for risk of alienating its leftist adherents who typically vote blue.
The cognitively deficient president has no issue with defunding the police if it means Democrats stay in power, which is the only reason why he’s coming out against it today.
On Thursday, Biden signaled his support for the cops in a speech promoting his administration’s war against gun rights.
“The answer is not to defund the police,” he said during an appearance with New York City Mayor Eric Adams.

During his remarks at NYPD headquarters, Biden addressed New York City Mayor Eric Adams, who spent 20 years with the department, saying, “You and I agree, the answer is not to abandon our streets, that’s not the answer.
“The answer is to come together, police and communities, building trust and making us all safer. The answer is not to defund the police, it’s to give you the tools, the training, the funding to be partners, to be protectors, and the community needs you,” Biden said.
He went on to push for additional funding for community policing, the U.S. Marshals, and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.
Additional funding for the very agency responsible for the seizure of guns from law abiding citizens? Sounds about right.
“We’re not about defunding, we’re about funding and providing the additional services you need beyond someone with a gun strapped to their shoulder,” Biden added.
He also called for more social workers and mental healthcare professionals to work alongside officers.
This is all a complete load of nonsense coming from Biden, who just last year admitted the real story behind his sudden support for law enforcement.
Leaked audio from a phone call with black leaders exposed Biden’s true feelings about the ‘Defund the Police’ movement.
In the call he warned activists that Democrats will continue losing elections if they continue to bash police, but reiterated his support for the movement in general, promising to radically change police departments and their funding
