Joe Biden just suffered this humiliating defeat after two Democrats turned on him
Joe Biden tried to reboot his Presidency for the umpteenth time.
This reset failed like all the others.
And that’s because Joe Biden just suffered this humiliating defeat after two Democrats turned on him.
On Wednesday, Joe Biden held a pathetic and rambling nearly two-hour-long press conference to try and talk his way out of crises in the supply chain, COVID, inflation, the border, crime, and Russia.
Biden horrified Americans with a bizarre performance.
He gave Russia the “green light” to invade Ukraine, he lied about his past comments comparing opponents of his election takeover bill to racists and segregationists, and he claimed the 2022 election would be fraudulent.
Just after the press conference ended, Democrats drove the final nail in the coffin of Joe Biden’s latest reboot when Senators Kyrsten Sinema and Joe Manchin voted with Republicans to block an attempt to eliminate the legislative filibuster.
After helping to preserve the Senate and American democracy, Sinema rubbed salt in the wound for Biden by releasing a statement explaining why she supported keeping the 60-vote threshold to end debate in place.
Sinema’s statement read:
Tonight, I voted again to support legislation safeguarding and expanding Americans’ access to the ballot box and strengthening faith in our elections. I also maintained my longstanding opposition to separate actions that would deepen our divisions and risk repeated radical reversals in federal policy, cementing uncertainty and further eroding confidence in our government. Tonight’s votes must not be the end of our work to protect our democracy. That goal requires all Americans everywhere to unite around sustained strategies in support of free, fair, and open elections in which every vote is fairly counted. These challenges cannot be solved by one party or Washington alone.
Tonight also should not be the end of our efforts to make the Senate work better. Senators of both parties have offered ideas — including some that would earn my support — to make this body more productive, more deliberative, and more responsive to Americans’ needs.
Sinema and Manchin defying Biden capped one of the worst first years of any President in American history.
Joe Biden ended the year with sinking approval numbers, an inflation crisis, a supply chain crisis, and a border crisis.
And now Joe Biden lacks the political capital to convince members of his own Party to go along with his agenda.
