Oh Joe, this may not have been wise.
By all accounts, God seems to be long-suffering and forgiving, but claiming to speak for him and put words in his mouth claiming they are “God’s truth” with regard to what we all know very well to be a lie may, in fact, not be the wisest thing Biden has ever done.
Then again, he doesn’t do much wise in the first place, so maybe just more par for the course?
Ok my friends, let’s take a look at what the Resident had to say:
"here is God's truth about Jan 6, 2021
"an armed insurrection
"looking to deny the will of the people
"to subvert the Constitution
"the former president has created a web of lies
"because he values power over principle
"his bruised ego can't accept that he lost"

Here’s more, from The Independent:
Joe Biden has given a his much-trailed speech marking the anniversary of the deadly riot at the US Capitol on 6 January 2021 – a searing address in which he condemned Donald Trump for watching TV during the insurrection as his supporters attacked Congress.
He also dismissed the idea that the insurrectionists were “patriots”, declaring that “you cannot love your country only when you win. You cannot obey the law only when it is convenient. You cannot be patriotic when you embrace and enable lies.
“Those who stormed this Capitol, and those who instigated and incited, and those who called on them to do so held a dagger at the throat of America, at American democracy. They did not come here out of patriotism or principle. They came here in rage. Not in service of America, but rather, in service of one man.”
His speech comes as some Democrats are said to be quietly exploring how they could potentially ban Mr Trump from holding office again, following the deadly riot last year in which five people lost their lives.
