Biden Defends Filibuster Even Though It’s a ‘Relic of Jim Crow’

The Democrat’s push to kill the filibuster is falling apart. Now, even President Biden himself is admitting that killing the filibuster will only cause more harm than good. During a CNN town hall with Don Lemon, President Biden said eliminating the filibuster will send Congress into chaos while also blasting it as systemically racist.

According to The Daily Wire:

“The abuse of the filibuster is pretty overwhelming,” the president continued, adding that he is in favor of returning to filibustering by physically standing on the floor.

“I would go back to that where you have to maintain the floor,” Biden said. “You have to stand there and talk and hold the floor.”

“If it’s a relic of Jim Crow, it’s been used to fight against civil rights legislation historically, why protect it?” Lemon asked.

“There’s no reason to protect it other than you’re going to throw the entire Congress into chaos and nothing will get done,” Biden said. “Nothing at all will get done.”

Democrats have been pushing to eliminate the filibuster but have had some pushback from moderates like Joe Manchin.

Right. Sorry, Joe Blow, YOU are the sad reminder of the Jim Crow era. But things have changed. Perhaps we oughta re-christen it ‘JOE CROW!’
