On Tuesday night, Joe Biden delivered his fiery speech telling voters that democracy was on the line.
It was not about him, but it was about protecting this country.
Shockingly, he chose one of the worst possible backdrops imaginable to make his point.
Biden gave the speech at Union Station.
This used to be a hub of activity, but now it is an utter ghost town.
Just prior to Biden’s speech, there was a massive tent city erected outside, but the homeless were chased out to make it pretty for Joe’s big speech.
I’m guessing only because it’s election week, but DC cleared the tent city from in front of Union Station and it actually looks nice pic.twitter.com/UfRqWxGWSR

For someone that was trying to convince the people of this country that he was the man for the job, he could not have possibly picked a venue that summed up his presidency any better.
Businesses left that station specifically due to the conditions that Democrat policies created.
For instance, when Starbucks left, the company stated, “After careful consideration, we are closing some stores in locations that have experienced a high volume of challenging incidents that make it unsafe to continue to operate, to open new locations with safer conditions.”
Susan Ferrechio took a picture before Biden’s speech showing how empty the station was now…
President Biden plans to deliver an address Tuesday night from Union Station in DC. This once-thriving shopping center is now practically a ghost town. I took this photo of empty stores on Saturday. pic.twitter.com/UqgMwxGOnP

Just about everyone took a shot, even Dana Perino…
Wait wait wait. They’re having him give a major Hail Mary speech at Union Station and THAT’S the backdrop? This can’t be true….

But my favorite was from Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX), who saw things exactly as I did…
President Biden is slated to give a speech at Union Station in Washington, DC tonight.
The location is a perfect symbol of his presidency so far: Rampant crime and struggling businesses.

Just another failure that can be added to a long list of them by this administration.
