After coining the catchy phrase “Ultra MAGA” last week to describe President Trump’s agenda and supporters, Biden had a new catchphrase to describe Donald Trump himself, “The Great MAGA King.”
While Biden thought the nickname would be an insult, the Ultra-MAGA crowd loved it.
Biden spoke at the IBEW convention in Chicago Wednesday, where the podium made him look like a puny man.

President Biden on Wednesday labeled former President Trump the “great MAGA king” and bashed Republicans, notably Sen. Rick Scott (Fla.), for their plan to combat inflation.
“Under my predecessor — the great MAGA king — the deficit increased every single year he was president. The first year of my presidency, the first year, I reduced the deficit, literally reduced the deficit by $350 billion, first year,” he said in remarks at an International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers conference in Chicago.
Biden has been highlighting deficit reduction as a way to fight inflation in order to respond to criticism from Republicans that his American Rescue Plan, which had the price tag of $1.9 trillion and passed early last year, negatively impacted the economy.
“My Republican colleagues say these programs to help the working class and middle-class people, that, they say, that’s why we have inflation. They’re dead wrong,” Biden said on Wednesday.
He argued that “reducing the deficit is one of the main ways that we can ease inflationary pressures.”
The president brought up Scott’s proposed tax plan, which he has attacked recently while comparing it to his administration’s plan to combat inflation. Scott is the head of Senate Republicans’ campaign arm.
“I call it the ultra-MAGA plan, Make America Great Again plan,” he said of Scott’s proposal.
