Psaki on voting rights bills failing: "My advice to everyone out there who's frustrated, sad, angry, pissed off, feel those emotions, go to a kickboxing class, have a margarita, do whatever you need to do this weekend, and then wake up on Monday morning, we gotta keep fighting." pic.twitter.com/WkW4dJz0PB

As I said earlier: Like a good teacher, President Biden’s not mad at GOP, he’s just disappointed…
“I am profoundly disappointed that the United States Senate has failed to stand up for our democracy. I am disappointed — but I am not deterred,” Biden says, adding “We will continue to work with allies to advance necessary legislation to protect the right to vote.” pic.twitter.com/huT21CXMwd

… After news of Willis’s request broke, Trump issued a statement calling the investigation a witch hunt and continuing to insist—despite all the recounts—that the vote in Georgia in 2020 was characterized by “massive voter fraud.” He said: “my phone call to the Secretary of State of Georgia was perfect, perhaps even more so than my call with the Ukrainian President, if that’s possible.”
Our failed media ‘betters’…
Sure, Donald Trump tried to steal the January 6 election, and he cheered on a violent attack on the US Capitol by his supporters. But Joe Biden wants to restore a landmark voting rights law that was gutted by Republicans on the Supreme Court.
So they're the same.
