WASHINGTON, DC - APRIL 28: U.S. President Joe Biden addresses a joint session of congress as Speaker of the House U.S. Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) (L) looks on in the House chamber of the U.S. Capitol April 28, 2021 in Washington, DC. On the eve of his 100th day in office, Biden spoke about his plan to revive America’s economy and health as it continues to recover from a devastating pandemic. He delivered his speech before 200 invited lawmakers and other government officials instead of the normal 1600 guests because of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

Democrat President Joe Biden faced intense backlash over the speech he delivered to Congress on Wednesday night with many critics calling it extreme, full of false statements, and divisive.

Those numbers do not include attacks on the federal courthouse in Portland or the violent riot that broke out in Kenosha, Wisconsin, in September 2020.
