President Joe Biden is treading water and he’s obviously not happy about it. In Atlanta Tuesday, he reaffirmed his desire for a filibuster “carveout” to get “voting rights” legislation passed, and he’s upset that the Senate isn’t handing him what he wants. We’ve covered plenty of clowns who want to abolish the Senate, and Biden is beginning to sound like one of them, despite having been a senator himself for 150 years.
Biden wants majority rule … and that’s what he’s getting. It might be a 50-50 split in the Senate by party, but without Sen. Joe Manchin on board with nuking the filibuster, it’s 51-49. Add on Sen. Kyrsten Sinema and it’s 52-48 … the majority rules, and Biden doesn’t have a majority.

Oh, and we have 51 presidents. He’s not kidding.
Biden again bemoans his lack of sway – and insists it's not a joke. “We have 50-50 in the United States Senate – that means we have 51 presidents. You all thing I’m kidding.”

@JoeBiden doesn’t understand how the Senate works

I feel like it shouldn’t be too much to ask for a guy who’s been involved in the highest levels of US government for 50 years to understand the distinction between legislative and executive functions, but here we are I guess.

Tell me you don't know civics without saying it.
Our "President" is a joke. https://t.co/UiBItSoL0m

He has no idea. No idea how this works

If you have the majority, you do. 52-48 is a majority, voting against you.
It has been 2 years, and this jackass still hasn't learned to stop coughing into his hands. https://t.co/TDenfGBTx0

Now who has the majority?

Good thing the majority is ruling. He is just mad that the majority on this issue isn't on his side.

Bookmarking this for the next time there’s a GOP majority and Biden demands that the minority have more control. https://t.co/KYXdp2ScOj

He was planning his legacy on being shutting down COVID in the first 100 days of his presidency, and then he banked it on Build Back Better. He’s got nothing.
WHAT media bias? WaPo reports Sen. Kyrsten Sinema remains ‘stubbornly opposed’ to ending the filibuster https://t.co/ZZXNFO9JSI
