President Joe Biden lobbed another unfounded criticism at Republicans when he claimed they are trying to keep the votes of black Americans “from even counting.”
The president made his false claim during remarks Monday at the White House as he spoke during a Black History Month event.
“We’re protecting our country’s threshold liberty, the sacred right to vote, which I’ve never seen as under such attack,” Biden said.
“You know, it’s always made it harder for blacks to vote but this is trying to be able to figure out how to keep the black vote, when it occurs, from even counting,” he added, getting a handful of claps in response to his blatant lie.
Former United States senator for Georgia, Kelly Loeffler slammed the remarks as “reprehensible” in a tweet on Monday.
These comments from the President are reprehensible. Republicans want to make it easy to vote and hard to cheat.https://t.co/beoF26PQaE

Biden went on in his speech to call on Congress again to subvert the Constitution and pass his voting initiatives, the Freedom to Vote Act and the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act, which would effectively nationalize federal election laws.
Just trying to keep up. I’m:
1: Responsible for the pandemic
2: Don’t deserve to work because of my vaccine status.
3: Trying to stop black people from voting.
Don’t ever ask me to “rally around” Joe Biden. I wouldn’t piss on Joe Biden if he was on fire. What a piece of trash. https://t.co/Sqy4kb4WAE

Many Twitter users noted the not-so-thunderous applause when the president made his claim about Republicans.
Can we get captions? I didn’t catch the end because of the thunderous applause of the totally super real statement.

Others just wondered if a fact-check would be coming from the left-leaning media lapdogs. Not likely.

This is misinformation designed to undermine confidence in elections.
I thought Twitter didn’t allow that? https://t.co/4Q56oqvh9G

it’s absolutely amazing how Dems propose such ludicrous ways they are “protecting” everyone from Repubs.
Even worse is that people truly, wholeheartedly believe it without question.
