President Joe Biden and his Democratic Party faced new criticism over the weekend after he spoke approvingly of transgenderism in an interview with a hard-left organization.
During the interview, Biden expressed “moral” disgust with Republicans who are moving to ban minors from receiving permanently life-altering gender surgeries, a remark that earned him widespread condemnation from conservatives.
The segment with NowThis featured biological male Dylan Mulvaney, a transgender activist who identifies as a woman, the Daily Wire noted.
“This is my 221st day of publicly transitioning,” Mulvaney began.
“God love you,” Biden said in response.
“I am extremely privileged to live in a state that allows me access to the resources I need, and that decision is just between me and my doctors,” Mulvaney noted further. “But many states have lawmakers that feel like they can involve themselves in this very personal process.
“Do you think states should have a right to ban gender-affirming healthcare?” Mulvaney asked, pointedly mischaracterizing surgery to change one’s biological gender — especially minors — as “healthcare.”
In responding, Biden once again brought up his late son, Beau Biden, which he often does.
“I don’t think any state or anybody should have the right to do that. As a moral question and as a legal question, I just think it’s wrong,” Biden declared. “You know, I think I was saying before we started that my son, my deceased son, used to be the attorney general of the state of Delaware. He passed the most broadest piece of legislation that he, as attorney general, was able to convince the legislature and the governor to sign that dealt with all gender-affirming capabilities.”
“I mean, there’s a lot of, you know, you sometimes—they try to block you from being able to access certain medicines, being able to access certain procedures, and so on,” Biden added. “None of that should be available. I mean, no state should be able to do that, in my view. So I feel very, very strongly that you should have every single solitary right including, including use of your gender-identity bathrooms in public.”

Enter the condemnation.
“Just so we’re clear- the official Democratic party position now is that puberty blockers and sex reassignment surgery for kids is good,” Libs of TikTok noted in response on Twitter.
The Democratic Party has gone completely insane.

“It’s two weeks before the midterms and Biden is doing interviews w/ transgender activists about the need to surgically sterilize kids,” political consultant Noah Pollak wrote. “I think the progressives running the WH are actively trying to piss off 80 percent of the country. Never seen anything like it.”
“Checking in on the POTUS… A man dressed as a woman has been given time w/ him to tell him what it’s like to be a woman, at a time of record inflation, education through the floor, food insecurity and security threats to Americans and our way of life growing by the minute,” Hudson Institute Senior Fellow Rebeccah Heinrichs wrote.
“We cannot become inured to this. It’s so dangerous,” Heinrichs added. “I do not appreciate the gross mockery of femininity either. But that’s not even the main point.”
Babylon Bee CEO Seth Dillon tweeted: “Democrats are officially and proudly pro-mutilation for minors.”
