Dark Brandon Returns: Biden to Give Speech Tonight on “Threat of Election Deniers” and Political Violence

Published on

Joe Biden will address the “danger of election deniers” and political violence at a DNC fundraiser in Washington, D.C. on Wednesday evening, according to a release by the Democrats and statements by White House officials. The subject is a rehash of the “Dark Brandon” speech Biden delivered in September in Philadelphia. The 7 p.m. EDT address is slated for a Democrat fundraiser at the Columbus Club in Union Station, a once-vibrant retail and transit center on Capitol Hill that has been overtaken by violence and homeless encampments in recent years.

Anita Dunn, a Biden aide, told Axios on Wednesday morning that the site of the speech was picked to remind voters of the incident on January 6th.

The address is a last-minute addition to Biden’s itinerary, hinting at his desperation to prevent the anticipated Republican wins in the midterm elections next week.

“The president will address the threat of election deniers and those who seek to undermine faith in voting and democracy; and the stakes for our democracy in next week’s election,”

The White House updated Biden’s schedule Wednesday morning:

Senior White House advisors previewed the speech at an Axios forum Wednesday morning.

Axios excerpt:

The big picture: White House Senior Advisor and Assistant to the President Anita Dunn said that the setting of Capitol Hill is important.

“Because on January 6th we saw violence geared towards subverting democratic processes there.”
“It is an appropriate place to make these remarks tonight,” she said.
“The threat of political violence … it’s something that unites almost all Americans and something we can all be united against,” Dunn said.

Observers noted Union Station has fallen on hard times:

Andrew Quinn, Chief Speechwriter and Strategic Communications Director for Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), stated, “It appears that either D.C. or local authorities finally cleared out the homeless tent city in front of Union Station… in time for President Biden to give a speech there tonight”

Free Beacon executive editor Brent Scher photographed the suddenly cleared Union Station:

Mark Bednar, Strategic Communications and Digital Advisor to House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), “Live look at DC’s Union Station, where Biden will make his closing arguments tonight on Democrats’ accomplishments.”
