Joe Biden lied his head off about Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) when talking about why he hadn’t been able to pass his voting agenda bill.
Biden calling out Manchin and Sinema:
"I hear all the folks on TV saying why doesn't Biden get this done. Well because Biden only has a majority of effectively four votes in the House, and a tie in Senate with two members of the Senate who vote more with my Republican friends." pic.twitter.com/JTImNGFZEk

“I hear all the folks on TV saying: ‘Why doesn’t Biden get this done,'” Biden said. “Well, because Biden only has a majority of effectively four votes in the House, and a tie in Senate, with two members of the Senate who vote more with my Republican friends.”
This isn’t even close to being true. The two senators actually have voted with him 100% of the time, as I previously reported.
Add one more lie to the long list of lies from Biden. It’s all about trying to place blame on someone else for his not achieving the Democratic agenda. What he’s really upset about is that they wouldn’t blow up the filibuster, so Biden and the Democrats can just pistol-whip their agenda on through, that they actually have to get the votes through consensus which Biden hasn’t been able to do. He was trying to put pressure on them. But, lying about it wouldn’t do it.
Media asked Jen Psaki about Biden’s lie today, noting it wasn’t true and asking why Biden “felt the need to call out members of his own party.”
Listen to this steaming pile of horse hockey that she shovels at us.

Talk about a filibuster of an answer. She just refuses to answer the question and calls Biden’s remarks “commentary on TV punditry.”
Then she claimed that the comments shouldn’t be seen as an attack on them at all.
Amazing. CNN's Kaitlan Collins asks Jen Psaki to clarify whether President Biden's comments on Manchin and Sinema should be seen as an attack and Psaki says it shouldn't be seen that way at all.
Of course it was an slight against them. Give me a break. pic.twitter.com/RMwrSRts4Y

Of course it was an attack. The fact that they wouldn’t give us a straight answer and would dissemble about something so obvious really says something about how much they will try to manipulate reality to fit their agenda.
It was a lie and an attack; there’s no way around it.
To make it worse for the Democratic effort, he assigned Kamala Harris to be in charge of pushing his voting agenda. We’ve seen her lack of effort when it comes to the border and what a disaster it was — even before she was assigned to do anything on it. So, it’s basically the kiss of death for his efforts.
