Biden says leaked Supreme Court opinion could cause ‘significant enthusiasm’


President Joe Biden spoke directly about the motivating power of the leaked Supreme Court decision that would overturn Roe v. Wade to turn out voters as he told top donors about his plan to push back ‘ultra MAGA’ Republicans.

‘It has the potential to generate significant enthusiasm to get out and vote,’ Biden said of the leaked opinion, which has galvanized people on both sides of the abortion debate.

‘It also has enormous potential if we fail, what that will mean,’ he warned top party donors in a pep talk Wednesday evening in Chicago.

But he cautioned: ‘Understand that if we miss what’s at stake.’ Biden warned if Democrats lose power: ‘we’ve got a different world we’re in.’

President Biden said that draft-decision to overturn Roe v. Wade was likely to galvanize democratic voters and get them to the polls in the fall midterm elections. Earlier, he tore into 'ultra-MAGA' Republicans in a fiery speech to the 40th International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) International Convention

He spoke in emotional language about the pain of women over the issue.

He mentioned ‘not only the brutality, of taking away a woman’s right to control her own body, at all damage, physically, psychologically, practically.’

But also the risks that other rights such as gay rights and contraception are at stake, Biden said.

Though the GOP is predicted to make gains in the midterm elections, Biden said in his speech that he hopes democrats will gain three senate seats and increase their House majority

Though the GOP is predicted to make gains in the midterm elections, Biden said in his speech that he hopes democrats will gain three senate seats and increase their House majority 

‘We can’t let this happen guys. And it’s going to be hard. Because inflation is going to scare the living hell out of everybody. 

He brought up Jan. 6 and near disbelief about what happened. ‘It was almost like how can that happen? How can that be?’ Biden asked.

As a result, ‘People started to lose faith in the capacity of American government to deliver,’ he said.

Biden made his comments at a fundraiser for top donors at the Marriott Marquis in Chicago. DNC Chair Jamie Harrison and Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker both spoke at the event. There were 42 people seated at the event. The president walked beyond a podium, carrying a microphone as he ripped his predecessor – who he often took pains to avoid talking about early in his term.

Heavy hitters paid as much as $365,000 to attend. One famous face who Biden mentioned in his remarks is former Senator Carol Mosley Braun, an Illinois Democrat. 

‘One of the things that I think we have to do is not just talk about what we’ve done — we don’t do that enough and that’s my fault,’ he admitted.

He made a bold prediction about Democratic prospects in 2022.

‘I think we can pick up three Senate seats and I think we can increase our majority in the House but we have to do it by more than just a couple votes,’ Biden said, despite predictions the GOP is on the move.

‘We can’t let this happen guys. And it’s going to be hard. Because­ inflation is going to scare the living hell out of everybody,’ Biden said.

‘I think they’re the most extreme party, that’s what the Republican Party is now. The fact of the matter is they’ve run the show, the MAGA Republicans.’

At one point during the fundraiser someone’s phone ran. ‘I know that’s Trump calling – he always does this,’ Biden joked, indicating how the former president was on his mind.
