Biden’s plunge to his lowest point yet came five days after the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, which Democrats have hoped would catalyze a resurgence of support for Democrats.
Biden, in a desperate effort to boost his flagging support, resorted to another hyperventilated, hyperbolic attack on conservatives.
“Folks, let’s get one thing straight: The ultra-MAGA agenda has always been about taking away women’s rights, in every single state,” he tweeted.

Sonia Ossorio, the president of the National Organization for Women in New York, breathed after the SCOTUS decision, “I don’t see how this cannot energize voters. Women are fed up.”
Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) ranted, “”Elect more MAGA Republicans if you want nationwide abortion bans, the jailing of women and doctors and no exemptions for rape or incest. Or, elect more pro-choice Democrats to save Roe.”
Biden has grown fond of the term “Ultra-MAGA.” In early May, during a speech on the economy, Biden whined, “Let me tell you about this ultra-MAGA agenda. It’s extreme, as most MAGA things are.”
“The White House works aggressively to paint Republicans and their policies as an ‘ultra MAGA agenda’ in a push to overcome the president’s brutal approval ratings and voters’ frustration with high inflation to help Democrats maintain control of Congress,” USA Today pointed out.
Former White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki, when asked how Biden’s attacks aimed at “Ultra-MAGA” Republicans would “jive” with his promise to bring unity, answered, “The President’s view is you can do both. He believes that there is work we can continue to do together… He is also not going to stand by and not call out what he sees as ‘Ultra-MAGA’ behavior, ‘Ultra-MAGA’ policies that are out of the mainstream of the country and are not in the interest of the American people.”
“It’s the president’s phrase and the president made those comments himself just last week as you know,” Psaki acknowledged. “I think what has struck him is how extreme some of the policies and proposals are that a certain wing of the Republican Party — that is taking up too much of the Republican Party — are for… So to him, adding a little ‘Ultra’ to it gave it a little extra pop.”
Fox News anchor Dana Perino commented, “Just because he comes out and says ‘Ultra MAGA’ 20 times it’s not going to make inflation go away.”
“If it’s a choice between Biden or Trump, that’s what the team wants — that’s what the Biden team wants,” she added. “But everybody is dealing with inflation every day. It’s a referendum on the president. That’s what the mid-terms are about.”
