Another of his welcome campaign messages is one that he repeated Friday: “We may be opponents, but we are not enemies. We are Americans.”
It’s absolutely the right tone, but some of his key supporters sound more interested in humiliation and revenge than reconciliation.
His spokesman, Andrew Bates, also said Friday in a statement about Trump that “the United States government is perfectly capable of escorting trespassers out of the White House.”
No doubt that played well with the deep-state haters and resistance crowd, but it smacked of juvenile bravado and Bates deserves a visit to the woodshed. By letting the public know he doesn’t approve of such talk, Biden would be affirming his unity pledge to all Americans.
