Democrats Infuriated Over Biden’s Inaction: Report
“It’s infuriating,” a top Democratic strategist told The Hill, referring to frustrations with the Biden administration.
“Our house is on fire, and it seems like they’re doing nothing to put the fire out. They’re just watching it with the rest of us.”
The administration has suffered a series of defeats over the past month: the Supreme Court’s overturning of Roe v. Wade, gun violence, and skyrocketing prices of gasoline and consumer goods.
CNN analyst Bakari Sellers, a former member of the South Carolina House of Representatives, voiced her frustration about Biden’s inaction on abortion rights.
“I’m not sure what he’s doing. I can tell you what he ain’t doing,” Sellers said on CNN recently.
Meanwhile, White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre fielded several questions at Tuesday’s press briefing regarding complaints from the left, with Democratic lawmakers and pundits saying Biden demonstrated a lack of urgency and passion.
“This is a president that has been working tirelessly day in and day out since he’s walked into this administration fighting for the American public,” Jean-Pierre said.
“That is what matters to him. That is what is important is delivering every way that he can to make sure that we get things done.”
