Biden says this a week after pressuring MLB to move its All-Star Game out of Atlanta, GA.
We saw Press Secretary Jen Psaki try to deny President Joe Biden had anything to do with MLB moving its All-Star Game out of Atlanta, GA, over the state’s”Jim Crow laws.”
I guess the blowback was huge because Biden softened his stance when it comes to athletes. He refused to take a side when asked if the Masters golf tournament should leave Augusta, GA, due to those “Jim Crow laws.”
He cannot stop describing them as Jim Crow laws.
Biden on whether the Masters should be moved out of Georgia: “That’s up to the Masters”
“It's reassuring to see that for-profit operations and businesses are speaking up about how these new Jim Crow laws are just antithetical to who we are." pic.twitter.com/zMnDRqp3Cf

WEIRD. So freaking weird.
“I think today’s professional athletes are acting incredibly responsibly,” Biden told ESPN’s Sage Steele in an interview. “I would strongly support them doing that. People look to them. They’re leaders.”
I guess golf players don’t count?DONATE
