Democrats like to hurl election denial accusations at Republicans. But now the tables have turned.

Because Joe Biden just threw out these election results in an unprecedented move.

On Tuesday, President Joe Biden referred to Terry McAuliffe, the Democratic gubernatorial candidate who lost to Republican Gov. Glenn Youngkin in 2021, as “the real governor” of Virginia.

CBS News reported that Biden addressed a campaign rally with his supporters in Manassas, Virginia, marking the president’s first joint campaign event with Vice President Kamala Harris for the 2024 season.

The president’s speech centered on defending abortion rights and criticizing Trump for his participation in overturning Roe v. Wade. As Biden ascended the stage, he pointed to McAuliffe in the audience, calling him “the real governor.”

“Hello, Virginia,” Biden began his speech. “And the real governor, Terry McAuliffe.”

In 2021, Youngkin defeated McAuliffe by more than 60,000 votes to become Virginia’s first Republican governor since 2009. McAuliffe previously served as governor of the state from 2014 to 2018.

Biden’s remark at the campaign event on Tuesday perplexed politicians and political pundits, who pointed out that the president has spent his 2024 campaign rehashing Trump’s denial of Biden’s 2020 election victory.

Biden recently compared Trump and his followers to “defeated Confederates” and described the former president as a threat to “democracy.”

In remarks commemorating the anniversary of the January 6, 2021, Capitol riot, Biden even praised the imprisonment of hundreds of Trump supporters who stormed the Capitol in protest of the election outcome.

Youngkin responded to Biden’s remark on Tuesday, saying, “Mr. President, I’m right here.”

Some political pundits described the president’s remark as “bizarre” and “monstrously stupid.”

“This is monstrously stupid, even if intended as a silly joke,” CNN contributor and The Dispatch Editor-in-Chief Jonah Goldberg said.

“If you’re going to make the other side’s election denial central to your campaign, the last thing you want to do is this nonsense.”

“Bizarre,” wrote Alyssa Farah Griffin, a former Trump aide and current co-host of “The View.” “When you’re running on ‘defending democracy’ jokes about elections being stolen are *not* funny at all.”

Virginia Attorney General Jason Miyares asked, “So Joe Biden is an election denier?”

Biden has increased his attacks on Trump and his supporters in recent weeks as he launches his re-election campaign, with all indicators leading to a Biden-Trump rematch.

Trump, the GOP frontrunner, has won the first two Republican primary contests, easily winning Iowa last week and New Hampshire on Tuesday.

Biden handily won the New Hampshire primary on Tuesday night, defeating Congressman Dean Phillips (D-MN) and self-help author Marianne Williamson.

After the Democratic National Committee designated South Carolina as the first state in the party’s primary, the president ran a write-in campaign there.

According to the Real Clear Politics average, Trump is beating Biden by about three points in general election surveys.
