Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden's denunciation of the violence in Wisconsin is "very late in coming," "Special Report" host Bret Baier observed on "The Five" Wednesday.

“It is needless violence,” Biden said in a video posted on Twitter. “Violence that endangers lives and guts businesses and shutters businesses that serve the community. That's wrong.”

"You’ve heard this again and again and again about Democrats not speaking out on violence," he went on. "Now, the question is, where does this go?

"I’ve heard Democrats blaming the Trump campaign and the Trump Administration for the chaos … [but] that doesn’t seem to fly."
