Stacey Abrams, who still thinks Republican voter suppression cost her the governorship of Georgia despite record turnout, told CNN’s Christiane Amanpour that she hasn’t been pitching herself for the job of Joe Biden’s vice president. She has shared concerns that Biden won’t pick a woman of color and told ELLE that she would be an excellent running mate: “I have the capacity to attract voters by motivating typically ignored communities,” she says. And she’s passed the final test by saying that she knows Biden and believes him when he says he didn’t sexually assault Tara Reade … not that Reade’s a liar or anything; Abrams believes women. Sometimes.
Even Democratic Rep. Lacy Clay has had enough of Abrams’ posturing, saying “you cannot show up at the winner’s window with loser’s tickets.”
But no, Abrams hasn’t been pitching herself.

Except for the times when she's been pitching herself.

Yes she has. This is embarrassing

That's all she's been doing for weeks. That would be one thing, but it doesn't help her case that she is best known for losing an election and refusing to concede.

Then who was the Stacey Abrams going around telling everyone she has to be VP?
— Dan Kornfeld (@MediaAdjusted) May 6, 2020
Okay, can anyone else see her lying?
I mean we've seen previous headlines where she is trying to shake Biden's team down to get the VP slot.
Does she really think people will forget so easily?

She’s literally done nothing but pitch herself for the past two months

Today? You haven’t been pitching yourself in the last 24 hours you mean?

"I haven't been pitching myself," she said, in her pitch to be selected as a Vice Presidential candidate.

She will do and say anything for power. Never give in to people like that.

She’s got the personality disorder thing down pat

Power-hungry politicians never fail to seem inauthentic when trying to seem authentic
— Rohun Shroff (@ShroffRohun) May 6, 2020
Even Amanpour isn't buying that.
— NiedsDeadGhost (@NiedsG) May 6, 2020
She is going to blow a literal gasket when she isn’t chosen. It’s going to be great. ?
— Sauby (@jjsauby) May 6, 2020
Perhaps she meant “effectively.” She has clumsily attempted to wield the double-edged sword of pretending to be a victim of past election fraud and holding control over the future African-American vote in 2020.

Stacey you’ve been pitching hard. Almost even making threats.

It's all over for Biden if he picks Stacey Abrams.
— BushidoBlade (@BushidoBlade61) May 6, 2020
A whole lot of people think Biden wouldn’t even make it through his first term; is Abrams ready for the Oval Office? She thinks so.
Joe Biden tells Al Sharpton there are ‘significantly more than one’ black women being considered for VP https://t.co/kZvou2Gi0S
