“We have put together, I think, the most extensive and inclusive voter fraud organization in the history of American politics,” the former vice president said in the video.

Democrats, the media, and even Fox News, immediately went into damage control mode. Fox News raised the point that the left is trying to use to cover for Biden’s statement, reporting that “Biden may have been referring to his campaign’s massive ‘election protection program,’ which includes former Attorney General Eric Holder and hundreds of other lawyers in preparation for a legal battle in the event of a contested election.”
Despite Democrats’ excuses, many conservatives reacted strongly to Biden’s comments in the video clip.
“BIDEN ADMITS TO VOTER FRAUD! Joe Biden brags about having the ‘most extensive VOTER FRAUD organization’ in history!!” White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany wrote on Twitter on Saturday.

Conservatives on Twitter began to point out the double standards, asking what the Democrats and the media’s reactions would have been if it was President Trump who had made this gaffe.
Ask how they'd feel it it was Trump: "[W]e have put together and you guys did it for President Obama's administration before this, we have put together I think the most extensive and inclusive voter #fraud organization in the history of American politics." https://t.co/KfGHBfH9wi

Biden has a history of gaffes, including saying that he was running for the Senate earlier this month, calling President Trump “George,” and his claim last month that 200 million Americans had died from COVID. The president has repeatedly criticized Biden’s misstatements.
“Joe also said yesterday he’s running for the U.S. Senate (again) and totally forgot where he was (wrong State!). Joe has never been a nice or kind guy, so it’s easier to find this obvious [and] rapidly getting worse ‘dementia’ unacceptable for USA!” ,” Trump wrote on Twitter on Oct. 13.
Mitt can’t be thrilled about this! Joe also said yesterday he’s running for the U.S. Senate (again) and totally forgot where he was (wrong State!). Joe has never been a nice or kind guy, so it’s easier to find this obvious & rapidly getting worse “dementia” unacceptable for USA! https://t.co/QIpH7RDfAV
