On a separate Facebook live stream, filmed outside the Library of Congress, Roseberry addressed President Joe Biden directly, stating: “I’m here for a reason, Joe Biden. I’m here for the American people. And if you want to take me out, take me out. But when the patriots come, your ass is in trouble… So if you blow my truck up man, it’s on you, Joe. I’m ready to die for the cause.”

During his live stream, Roseberry also expressed outrage over the administration’s handling of the situation in Afghanistan: “The first thing I want is air strikes in Afghanistan. Kick that Taliban’s ass and keep them from killing people.”

Roseberry also ranted about the U.S. healthcare system, saying, “They cut off my healthcare. I can’t even get shots anymore.”

He added: “I don’t care if Donald Trump ever becomes president again. Don’t matter to me. I think all you Democrats need to step down. You gotta understand the people don’t want you there.”
