The White House is in full damage control after lying about why Georgia Democrat Stacey Abrams refused to attend President Biden’s inflammatory and divisive speech where he attacked Americans and labeled his opponents as “domestic enemies.”
Abrams and other Georgia Democrats wisely chose to stay away and hardly bothered to make an excuse for their absence. Abrams claimed that she had a “scheduling conflict” that couldn’t even be moved for the President of the United States.
The White House tried to play the situation off. White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said, “He understands scheduling conflicts and how they appear in your life.”
Of course, President Biden betrayed the truth of the situation when he aggressively went after a reporter who asked about Abrams, saying, “I’m insulted that you asked the question. We have a great relationship. We got our scheduling mixed up … We’re all on the same page and everything’s fine.”
The President’s desperate denial only further proves that Democrats are desperate to make space between themselves and President Biden.
President Biden has become a massive liability for Democrats who are trying to win elections both in 2022 and in 2024.
Abrams understands that appearing alongside an immensely unpopular President Biden while he demonizes Americans would be political suicide. Unfortunately for President Biden, most Americans understand that and see right through the White House’s lies.
