For roughly the past week, in nearly every speech, President Joe Biden has deployed the term “ultra-MAGA” in what he believes is an attempt to smear conservatives who still back former President Donald Trump, which is likely in the tens of millions.
Aside from the nickname completely backfiring in the same way that Hillary Clinton’s “basket of deplorables” did in the lead-up to the 2016 election, the new terminology was reportedly the brainchild of a six-month research project, and also from a public relations adviser who allegedly assisted convicted rapist Harvey Weinstein prepare for his trial, The Daily Wire reports.
The revelation came after former White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki tried her best to make it appear as if President Biden came up with the term on his own. Nobody believed her, but the The Washington Post made the doubt official by digging in a little further.
WaPo wrote: “Biden’s attempt to appropriate the ‘MAGA’ brand as a political attack was hardly accidental.”
It added: “It arose from a six-month research project to find the best way to target Republicans, helmed by Biden adviser Anita Dunn and by the Center for American Progress Action Fund, a liberal group.”
The president, in recent days, used a variation to target Trump himself, labeling the 45th president as the “great MAGA king,” which also resulted in a humiliating backfire for the Biden administration, as Trump immediately embraced the name in a statement, and his supporters on social media turned it into an endearing new title, complete with memes.

Biden, like Democrats did in 2016, just keeps giving Trump — and his loyal, massive army of supporters — tons of free ammunition for upcoming races and for the ongoing battle on the social media front.
Regardless, Biden’s latest tactic, which is a total tactical failure on his part, is yet another strong diversion from his mountain of promises of “unity” on the campaign trail. But he’s a Democrat, so continuous lies shouldn’t come as a surprise.
