There’s no question that Joe Biden encouraged Major League Baseball to pull its All-Star Game from Georgia.
But as my colleague Sister Toldjah wrote yesterday, Jen Psaki tried to deny that’s what Biden said and didn’t seem to give a good gosh darn about the fact that his words may have helped cost Georgia $100 million, with a lot of hard-working people losing a lot of money.
Under questioning from Peter Doocy, Jen Psaki refuses to admit that Biden's support for MLB moving the All-Star Game out of Atlanta was a way of the White House putting their thumbs on the scales.
She also refused to comment on the loss of $100M from Cobb County. Go figure. pic.twitter.com/4i1bW0gWOC

They’re backing off because they don’t want to be held responsible for the consequences of his words.
So let’s go to the video, because he surely did encourage it.
Pulling out of Atlanta for the All-Star game would cost the local economy more than $200 million and countless jobs
Joe Biden “strongly supports” it
I hope GA voters remember this

Not only that, Major League Baseball even indicated in their own statement on the subject that he’d influenced them, as Townhall notes.
Today Jen Psaki tried to distance President Biden from the MLB decision to pull the All Star game from Georgia, but the MLB website specifically refers to Biden's criticism before the announcement https://t.co/B39xqPN4Ud pic.twitter.com/rxlSNqYOW7

“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,” MLB released last week.
So no, you don’t get to say irresponsible things and push a false narrative, but then back off or try to spin when it has harmful consequences that you don’t want to get tagged with.
But that’s not stopping Jen Psaki from trying — she was at it again today.
Peter Doocy asked her about MLB moving the All-Star Game to Colorado which had a very similar law to that of Georgia.
.@pdoocy: "Is the White House concerned MLB is moving their All Star Game to Colorado, where voting regulations are very similar to Georgia?"
PSAKI: "94% of people in Colorado voted by mail in the 2020 election….The Ga. bill is built on a lie. There was no widespread fraud." pic.twitter.com/kYQwXIUl8B

“Is the White House concerned MLB is moving their All-Star Game to Colorado, where voting regulations are very similar to Georgia?”
She claims she’s going to refute what he says, but then she doesn’t actually do so. She talks about Colorado voting by mail. But in order to register to vote in Colorado, you need to show ID and in subsequent voting, there has to be a signature match. If you vote in person, you have to show ID. So according to Psaki logic, Biden now must be cool with voter ID since you need that to vote in Colorado and she’s touting Colorado.
So is Biden being racist now? I mean more than he usually has been?
Bottom line? American voters get that ID is important for election security and 72% are for it, they don’t believe this Democratic malarkey that it’s racist, which claim is in and of itself racist suggesting that somehow minorities are not capable of getting ID.
It seems that Psaki just tripped over herself, now touting a state which has voter ID for its elections.
