As Breitbart News reported Thursday that Republican lawmakers in Washington, D.C., and the states are leading a basic election integrity effort, Biden said at his first presidential press conference Thursday that Republicans are acting “un-American” and “sick” in a way that makes “Jim Crow look like Jim Eagle.
I’m concerned about how un-American and sick the whole election integrity effort is,” Biden said. In some states, you can’t give water to people waiting in line to vote, and voting must end by 5 p.m., knowing that commuters are just getting off work at 5 p.m. In the strictest of cases, Republicans don’t allow absentee ballots.”
Democrats often describe basic election integrity measures as “voter suppression.” Schumer said on Wednesday that “some of the voter suppression laws in Joe and other Republican states smack of Jim Crow rearing its ugly head again. it’s been 160 years since the 13th, 14th and 15th amendments abolished slavery, and Jim Crow still seems to be with us.”
Biden said at the press conference, also describing the Republican Party’s basic election integrity measure as making “Jim Crow look like Jim Hawk.” Crow has the English word for crow, and an eagle is certainly a huge shape compared to a crow. Biden explained, “I mean, what they’re trying to do is huge. “
Biden said he “believes” that Democrats can stop basic election integrity measures.”
