(CNN)As President Joe Biden used the grand Washington stage to bemoan the Capitol insurrection as the worst attack on US democracy since the Civil War, a flurry of Trump-era flashbacks underscored the depth of the still unvanquished threat.
Biden’s address to a joint session of Congress on Wednesday night was a ritual rooted in tradition and featured a President trying to coax America back to normality. To that end, the new commander in chief told lawmakers in the House of Representatives that America was “on the move again” — emerging from a deadly pandemic, reviving its economy, and primed to recapture its role as a leader of nations and to take care of its own citizens better than ever before Biden’s First 100 Days
He made clear the scale of his ambition — not just to heal national divisions opened up by Donald Trump’s tumultuous presidency — but to launch a new epoch in which government is a tool to raise the living standards and ease the plight of workers and the middle class.
But the pageantry of political continuity created by Wednesday’s time-honored address, albeit curtailed by Covid-19, couldn’t quell the raging, inferno that Trump left behind for even a day.
It was striking, and a little unsettling, to hear an American President warn that the democratic foundation on which the nation rests remains fragile — months after a majority of Republicans who sit in the House chamber in which he spoke refused to vote to confirm his election win.
“The insurrection was an existential crisis, a test of whether our democracy could survive. And it did. But the struggle is far from over,” Biden said.
