President Joe Biden yelled like a crazed elderly man at reporters from the press late on Thursday concerning, and boy is this rich, “election subversion,” and states across the country that are passing election integrity laws to help protect against voter fraud.
During a strange meltdown on Capitol Hill, the president was asked for his thoughts concerning Arizona Democrat Kyrsten Sinema crushing the Democratic Party’s chances of ending the filibuster in the Senate so that they could pass “election reform” legislation.
“You all ask questions about complicated subjects like ‘can you get this done.’ I hope we can get this done. The honest-to-God answer is I don’t know whether we can get this done. Is this mic on? I guess — anyway — I’m not sure — anyway, I hope we can get this done, but I’m not sure,” Biden said.
“But one thing for certain, one thing for certain, like every other major Civil Rights bill that came along,” Biden ranted on, “If we miss the first time, we can come back and try the second time. We missed this time. We missed this time.”
The president then took aim at state legislatures for daring to pass legislation designed to protect their elections from fraud.
“The state legislative bodies continue to change the law, not as to who can vote, but who gets to count the vote. Count the vote! Count the vote! It’s about election subversion! Not just whether or not people get to vote!” Biden yelled.
Again, that’s rich. It’s amazing how this man cannot even seem to grasp his own hypocrisy. When conservatives questioned the election results from 2020, in the face of evidence, they were labeled crazies who wanted to subvert the outcome of the election.
And yet, that’s exactly what the Democrats are wanting to do with these bills. They want to ensure that the odds are stacked in their favor, cancelling out the voices of those who think differently than they do.
“Who counts the vote!” he yelled again. “That’s what this is about, that’s what makes this so different than anything else we’ve ever done.”
“I don’t know that we can get it done, but I know one thing. As long as I have a breath in me, as long as I’m in the White House, as long as I’m engaged at all, I’m going to be fighting to change the way these legislatures have moving [sic], thank you,” he finished.
Here’s Sinema’s speech about her stance on the filibuster:
