Biden Strikes Out with Baseball Praise

Jen Psaki danced like a chicken on a hot plate as she worked to clarify Biden’s baseball stance.

Because Biden told ESPN he “strongly supported” the idea of moving the All-Star game out of Atlanta before MLB made the decision to pull the game.

“I think today’s professional athletes are acting incredibly responsibly. I would strongly support them doing that,” Biden said when asked about the idea during an ESPN interview. “People look to them. They’re leaders.”

That’s right about the time he called Georgia election laws a flashback to Jim Crow.

Now here’s the Psaki dance.

According to Breitbart:

On Friday, the MLB announced Friday their decision to pull the game, prompting vocal criticism from Republicans and supporters of the law. Even Georgia Democrats who opposed the law expressed disappointment with the league for hurting the local economy by canceling the game.

But on Monday, Psaki tried to dodge responsibility for the boycott, suggesting the president was only trying to support MLB players.

“He was not dictating for what Major League Baseball should do, that they should — dictating they should move the All-Star game,” she said. “That was their decision, they made that decision, and as he stated earlier he certainly supports that.”

She said Biden’s remarks should be considered in “context.”

But when asked by reporters if Biden supported the MLB decision to pull the game from Atlanta, Psaki demurred.

“He supports them being able to make the decision, and respond to what their players, you know, asks are given many of them are impacted of course by these laws,” she said.

When asked if she was trying to walk back Biden’s comments, Psaki replied, “I’m trying to articulate clearly to everyone what he said.”

But didn’t Biden major in social justice? On a scholarship. That earned him two degrees. Oops, I must be mistaken, as the President carries so many accolades.

Condemnation Commences

Not everyone is impressed by this move from MLB. In fact, some people see right through the guise of political reform.

The emperor has no clothes. And the village is run by a babbling idiot. But by all means, let’s move a baseball game. That will solved all the world’s problems.
