Civil rights attorney Leo Terrell has issued a challenge to President Joe Biden and several “idiots” in his administration.
In a post on Twitter, Terrell dared Biden, Vice President Kamala Harris, White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre, and trouble Democrat Senator John Fetterman to take an IQ test.
“I will pay for your test!” he added.

Terrell also followed up with a post on his website where he blasted Biden for his repeated lies during a gun-control speech.
“During a speech at the National Safer Communities Summit in Connecticut last week, Democrat President Joe Biden made multiple false claims as he argued for the reinstatement of the notoriously ineffective 1994 Federal Assault Weapons ban,” Terrell wrote.
“It’s time once again that we banned AR-15 rifle-style weapon,” Biden said.
He then explained how gun companies are selling their products in order to receive profits.
“High-capacity magazines — they’re not only a weapon of war, they’re the single biggest driver of profits for the gun industry.
“That’s why they’re selling them.
“Profit, profit, profit. The single biggest.”
“As I said, we did it once before, in ’94, and 10 years after that, the ban was — mass shootings went down significantly — the number of mass shootings,” Biden falsely claimed.
“That’s — when the ban expired, mass shootings tripled. But let the ban on assault weapons and high-capacity magazines come back into vogue.”
Top lawyer Terrell quickly pulled the rug from under Biden’s speech with a fact-check.
“The 1994 Federal Assault Weapons ban referenced by Biden had no effect in reducing gun homicide rates,” Terrell wrote.
“In fact, a 2014 study found ‘murder rates were 19.3% higher when the Federal ban was in effect.’
“Further, school shootings actually increased after the ban was passed.”
