Biden, Warren Pander to Stacey Abrams, Repeat Debunked Claims About Her Election Loss
“Stacey would be the governor right now, were it not for voter suppression, right this minute,” Joe Biden said Thursday, without evidence.
Though the Democratic candidates for president debated in Stacey Abrams’ home state of Georgia last Wednesday, surprisingly enough her name was only mentioned twice during the debate itself – once by Sen. Amy Klobuchar (MN) and the other time by Sen. Cory Booker (NJ).
Here’s what each of them said:
Klobuchar: And I can tell you right now, one solution that would make a huge difference in this state would be to allow every kid in the country to register to vote when they turn 18. If we had a system like this, and we did something about gerrymandering, and we stopped the voting purges, and we did something significant about making sure we don’t have money in politics from the outside, Stacey Abrams would be governor of this state right now.
Booker: This is a voting issue. This is a voter suppression issue. Right here in this great state of Georgia, it was the voter suppression, particularly of African-American communities, that prevented us from having a Governor Stacey Abrams right now.
In spite of the fact that Abrams wasn’t a focal point of the debate, several of the candidates stuck around the day after the debate for various events, and at each one they repeated an unsubstantiated claim that has been made for over a year now by Abrams and many other Democrats: That the 2018 Georgia gubernatorial election was “stolen” from Abrams.
Joe Biden stated in comments made to journalists in Atlanta that”Stacey would be the governor right now, were it not for voter suppression, right this minute.”
During a speech at Clark Atlanta University Thursday that was also attended by Rep. Ayanna Pressley (MA), Sen. Elizabeth Warren (MA) told the crowd of mostly black voters that Republican Gov. Brian Kemp was “sitting in Stacey Abrams’ chair”:
Touching on last year’s race for governor, Warren said that “Brian Kemp is sitting in Stacey Abrams’ chair,” as a result of voter suppression and the abolishment of the Voting Rights Act, which was designed to protect voters.
“And we are all grateful to Stacey for what she’s doing to make sure that never happens again in this country,” Warren said.
Similar remarks were also posted to her Twitter feed:
Right now, our democracy is broken. How do I know? Because Brian Kemp is sitting in @StaceyAbrams’ chair. And we are all grateful to Stacey for what she’s doing to make sure that never happens again in this country.

As I’ve said before, this falsehood has been debunked over and over by conservatives. But the liberal mainstream media won’t do their jobs by reminding Democrats that 1) they have no evidence to support their claims and 2) by their own standards they are undermining democracy by refusing to accept the results of an election.
Even Politifact notes there is “no proof” that voter suppression kept Stacey Abrams from winning in 2018.
Mike LaChance wrote back in June that affirming Abrams’ delusions has become a rite of passage of sorts for 2020 Democrats like Biden and Warren. The national press makes it all the easier for them to do so by refusing to call them out on the lie (instead, they do their own coddling of Abrams).
There’s a twofold strategy at work when top tier candidates like Biden and Warren continue to do this:
1) Biden wants to maintain his comfortable polling leads with black Democratic voters. Warren would like to cut into that. From the looks of things, she’s making inroads.
2) Biden has openly mentioned Abrams as one of several people he’d consider to be his vice presidential running mate. Abrams has said in interviews she would be open to a vice presidential nod.
Elizabeth Warren hasn’t talked about the vice presidential issue much, but there are reports she’s been considering (and talking to) failed Florida 2018 Democratic nominee for governor Andrew Gillum.
Other Democratic presidential candidates like Sen. Kamala Harris (CA) have remarked they believe Gillum’s election was also stolen.
Isn’t it amazing how in 2016 questioning the legitimacy of an election was considered undemocratic, a “direct threat to our democracy“? Guess that’s another one of may unwritten rules that only come into play depending on which party is making the accusation.

After all is said and done about biden (that he is the most crooked politician this side of clinton and obama), it is most stunning to learn he is also a thug.
His public threats against Lindsay Graham are stunning.
A street-smart Scrantonite …
A Pander is not just a cute bear in Asia.
The left lies about everything else, why not this? They have no problem with voter fraud, it was used on a massive scale to ensure Obama won, but when their candidate loses despite voter fraud it is blamed on voter suppression. I guess what that really means is they didn’t cheat enough to win.
If you learn to lie to yourself all the time you’ll have no problem lying to others.
As George Costanza said, “It’s not a lie, if you believe it”.
Always reminds of something an alcoholic once told me…
“once you learn how to lie to that person in the mirror every morning, it’s easy to lie to everyone else”
“Biden, Warren Pander to Stacey Abrams, Repeat Debunked Claims About Her Election Loss”
Reality is what I want it to be.
There’s a big reason they’re sucking up to her delusion: No matter who the eventual nominee is, it is GUARANTEED that Stacy Abrams is gonna be The Veep candidate. They need a black face on the ballot, they know it, and she’s actively campaigning for it now.
IKf she is picked to fill the VP slot, I am willing to bet that they do their level best to keep her quiet and hideden.
If the DNC sticks in immoral Abrams
then I’ll have every reason to
believe Stacey is Hillary’s Lover!
The point of the VP candidate is to bring in groups to vote for you that aren’t your natural constituency. Biden is already the “Black” candidate, so Abrams brings nothing.
The other modern reason is to pick a VP who would be far worse for your opposition than the POTUS candidate. The last thing you want to do is give any group an impetus to off the POTUS to get the VP they’d rather have.
Based on this Stacey Abrams has no hope of being VP.
Empress Abrams say:
“Warren and Biden are Racist Honkies.
OFF WITH THEIR HEADS!!!!”
With Stacy Abrams on the ticket, the Democrats will have the overweight, gap-toothed demographic tied up.
Put michelle obama on it, and they’ll have the gluttonous, grifting, America-hating, bitter, tasteless, disbarred incompetent racists vote locked-up, too.
Stupid. You forgot stupid. Stupid is a gigantic block of democrat voters.
She lost by 55,000 votes and yet she hasn’t produced a single person who was unable to vote due to “suppression.”
They are being suppressed from talking about it, doncha know!
Stacey lost a “RIGGED” election
just like Hillary!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Biden is a braggadocious popinjay, as well as an exceedingly corrupt politician. I hope Rudy has the goods on this shit-stain, and Durham and Barr bring him and his worthless piece of shit son down so hard the earth trembles.
I’m just getting sick of seeing these bastards continuously getting away with their bullshit.
Biden is thug.
StaceyElizabeth would be the governora public school teacher in Oklahoma right now, were it not for voter suppressionlying about her Native American heritage, right this minute,”
StaceyJoe and his son Hunter would be the governorbehind bars right now, were it not for voter suppressionthe Obama loyalists and a complicit media covering up their crimes, right this minute,”
Just sayin’ …
They’re getting desperate, aren’t they? 12 Characters in Search a Message. Rabble Without A Cause.
Just like the 12 little Indians in Agatha Christie’s
“And Then There Were None.”
I don’t think this is pandering. “Pandering” implies Biden, Warren, and other Democrats are saying things they don’t really believe in order to get votes. I don’t believe that is what is going on here.
The reality is that Democrats are totalitarians who truly believe they alone have the right to rule. And with their unqualified support of BLM and Antifa Democrats are also becoming increasingly comfortable with the idea of terrorizing and murdering ANYONE who gets in their way. Like Hitler, Stalin, and other genocidal monsters from history, Biden and Warren are simply dropping the mask and letting us know their real beliefs.
This talk from Warren and Biden are designed to do two things:
1) stir up the “community”, and try to turn back some who have walked away from the Democrats.
2) set the table for all Democrat losses being the result of “voter suppression”.
Democrats are Experts at “voter suppression”
along with voter fraud.
If these people cant get through their titanium lined skills Abrams is a loser we don’t need them in government at any level.
Stacey has moved on and is doing just fine, she’s opened a chain of all you can eat buffets called “The Fat Lady has Sung”.
Hillary must have been the funder then.
