Once again, Fox News’ Peter Doocy clobbered White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki during an exchange.
Doocy hit Psaki on White House support of the Democrats from Texas who fled the state rather than quorum and vote on legislation in the state House.
The knockout punch by Doocy was in asking Psaki to give an example in Joe Biden’s almost four decades in the Senate when he fled rather than cast a vote on legislation.
No Laughing Matter
When Doocy asked the question, Psaki tried to lighten the mood with a joke, but Doocy was not having any of it.
Here is the exchange…
Peter Doocy to Psaki on Texas Dems 🔥🔥: "Do you know any examples from his 36 years in the Senate that Joe Biden just hopped on a train and left town to avoid a vote that he knew he was going to lose?" pic.twitter.com/v6Ml15wCbX

So, again, I point to the fact that Democrats cannot actually point to anything in the bills they are protesting to back up their claims of these being Jim Crow-like legislation.
Ironically, by doing this, Democrats in Texas have created their own type of filibuster while railing against the Senate filibuster.
Obviously, the situation in Texas is far different simply because the Democrats have walked out and are refusing to do the job they are paid to do.
I would also note that the defense Psaki offers is really a massive insult to minorities and rural voters in this country.
They are basically saying people of color and rural voters are incapable of getting IDs or photocopying IDs because of the color of their skin or zip code.
The fact is the Texas laws make it far easier to vote, as long as you can prove you are who you say you are.
In that aspect, it is no different than going through a line at TSA when you are traveling by air.
They are also twisting the facts, such as no food and water in line at voting stations to make it seem like these things are forbidden, when the only thing forbidden is party officials or candidates trying to influence voters by offering these amenities to voters while they are in line to cast their vote.
Everyone in this country right now should be questioning why Democrats are so outraged over enhancements to election security and making a stand to make it easier for fraudulent votes to be cast.
