Biden, Biden, Biden. Do yourself a favor: Don’t have Psaki rush out to your defense, or, in more than one case, altogether deny what you’ve said, only for you to go out and say it again.
In case you missed it, Biden apparently decided getting involved in Georgia was a good idea (never mind the rather serious federal overreach, but that should stun no one by now). In fact, he decided it was such a good idea that he praised the athletes raising a ruckus over legislation that they likely don’t have a clue about, aside from what CNN told them.
Just consider his nonsense commentary last week.
“I think today’s professional athletes are acting incredibly responsibly. I would strongly support them doing that … People look to them. They’re leaders. The very people who are victimized the most are the leaders in these various sports.” [Source: Fox News]
So, pro athletes are simultaneously “leaders” while also being “victimized?” How does that work, exactly? Moreover, how is being paid multiple millions of dollars per year for tossing balls around any form of “victimization?”
And as far as “acting incredibly responsibly?” Would that include one of the most arrogant athletes out there today, Mr. Lebron James, who deliberately incited his millions of followers against the police, resulting in the tragic attack on police in L.A.?
Only in Biden’s snowflake America … And the only thing he got right was that some people sadly do “look to” athletes. Yet the athletes have not exactly been the embodiment of responsibility.
Despite Biden’s utterly inflammatory comments last week, Psaki rushed in to “save the day” (on the surface) once more, and she essentially denied public comments that Biden himself made.
“He was not dictating for what Major League Baseball should do, that they should, dictating they should move the All-Star game. That is, was their decision. They made that decision. And as he stated earlier, he certainly supports that …
I’m not here to call for anyone, on behalf of the President or the Vice President or anyone, to take steps in reaction to the law in Georgia. The President was asked a direct question, and the context of the question was also around the League meeting to discuss this exact issue, and he answered the question.” [Source: Town Hall]
Sure, Psaki, sure. Is that why the MLB cited Biden himself as a big reason for pulling out of Georgia? Consider the perspective of the MLB below.
“Major League Baseball announced on Friday that it will relocate the 2021 All-Star Game and MLB Draft, originally scheduled to take place in Atlanta, to a to-be-determined location. The decision comes a little more than a week after the passage of S.B. 202, a Georgia law that President Joe Biden criticized earlier this week, saying that it will restrict voting access for residents of the state.” [Source: Town Hall]
So, Psaki, care to take on the MLB as well? Or would you give them the same, inane runaround?
Meanwhile, Psaki may have to do a whole lot more running around as Biden apparently felt compelled to open his mouth again even more recently, with vastly more abrasive commentary towards Georgia.
“It is reassuring to see that for-profit operations and businesses are speaking up about how these new Jim Crow laws that are just antithetical to who we are.” [Source: Fox News]
“New Jim Crow laws.” Wow. And people thought Trump was inflammatory?
What’s even worse is Biden has no basis whatsoever for such a radical claim, which is why even The Washington Post called him out for his deception. Which he continued to do anyway, quite clearly, even after the callout.
All of this, again, is over Georgia daring to require voter ID for mail-in voting … then again, since highly fraudulent activities are likely how Biden was elected in the first place, no wonder he’s going so insane over Georgia.
After ranting endlessly about Georgia, Biden finally turned his attention to the individuals of least concern, otherwise known as people who actually work. And, courtesy of Biden’s mouth, quite a few are out of work after the MLB decided to pull a knee jerk reaction instead of actual thought and reflection.
“There’s another side to it too. When they in fact move out of Georgia, people who need help most, people who are making hourly wages, sometimes get hurt the most.” [Source: Fox News]
Gee, Biden, wow, thanks for that enlightenment. News flash: The minute you cancelled the Keystone XL pipeline (while simultaneously gunning for amnesty for millions of illegals), any concern you claim to have for hardworking Americans falls a bit flat, to put it rather mildly.
Now, let’s see how Psaki tries to spin Biden’s latest “Jim Crow” remarks, assuming she bothers to even acknowledge these questions at all.
Then again, since all questions have to apparently be pre-approved in advance, those types of more challenging questions will likely never surface in the first place.
