Joe Biden’s usage of the phrase “ultra MAGA,” deployed earlier this month in several speeches by the President to try and alienate the Trump faction of Republicans, isn’t as organic as it was first advertised to be.
After the outcry of “let’s go Brandon,” progressive think tanks and Washington DC’s brightest minds got to work on a counterattack of their own, and “ultra MAGA” was what they came up with.
The Washington Post has revealed that Biden’s usage of “ultra MAGA” to describe members of the Republican party was intentional and not spontaneous or organic. It took six months of research by Biden’s adviser Anita Dunn and the Center for American Progress Action Fund to come up with that. Focus group testing and polls undertaken by the Hart Research and the Global Strategy Group indicated that respondents see the phrase “MAGA” more negatively than other labels like “Trump Republicans.”
This scoop debunks claims made earlier this week by White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki, who said “ultra MAGA” was “the President’s phrase and he made those comments himself.”
