The failed publicity stunt by Texas House Democrats has been dealt yet another massive blow.
While the Texas Dems were able to get an audience with Kamala Harris, Joe Biden has yet to sit down with them.
Be it the fact they are spreading COVID like wildfire or some other reason, they are now upset that Joe Biden has reportedly refused their requests to sit down with them.
It is really not a surprise that Biden refused to meet with them in person due to their COVID infections, but Biden has also turned them down for a virtual meeting.
The truly amusing aspect of this is that the Democrat Party has been hailing them all as heroes, but Joe will not even talk to them on the phone.
According to local Texas media, Texas state Rep. Richard Peña Raymond (D) told U.S. Rep Lloyd Doggett (D-TX), “He won’t meet with us on Zoom like this, and I’m trying to be tactful, but I don’t know how else to say it, man.
“I’m just pissed off at this point. He doesn’t give us the respect the way you have.”
Failed presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke is also putting pressure on the group to continue to make a plea for a presidential meeting.
He reportedly told the group, “I feel very strongly about this. I think you need to center and focus all of your effort on the president.”
With the snub now going public, there will surely be more pressure on Biden to take the meeting, but it just goes to show that even Joe thinks this is utterly ridiculous.
