The chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee had his own words used against him in a hard-hitting new ad from the Lincoln Project.

According to Trump, Biden once said that Antifa is an "idea" not an organization. Biden also said that America is an "idea." Ergo, Biden thinks the United States is Antifa.

It's the same logic used by first-semester philosophy majors: My dog's hair is blond. Trump's hair is blond. Therefore, my dog is president.
