The big news of the day was Joe Biden leaving DC and heading to Georgia to tout a bill that has no chance of passing.
By the end of the day, that was secondary to who did NOT show up at the rally.
Along with several liberal groups expected to support Biden, Stacey Abrams did not show up.
When Biden was asked about it, he got just a bit testy.
Well what do you know… Joe Biden is a snowflake.
The fact that Abrams is running for office in Georgia and is a major voting rights legislation advocate means she should have figured out a way to make this work.
After all, the speech has been on the books for about a week, so she should have been able to figure out her schedule, right?
We all found out yesterday that Abrams would not be there, though, with speculation that Biden is so toxic, Abrams did not want to be seen with him.
So, rightfully, a reporter asked Biden if he was insulted that Abrams missed the speech.
Biden responded, “I’m insulted that you asked the question.
“I spoke with Stacey this morning; we have a great relationship.
“We got our scheduling mixed up.
“I talked with her at length this morning.
“We’re all on the same page and everything’s fine.”
You might be on the same page in regard to the legislation, but to blow off an appearance by a White House occupant from your party, well, that is pretty big news.
Sorry, Joe… nobody is buying it this time.
What do you think about Abrams blowing off Biden’s speech due to a “scheduling conflict”?
