During President Biden’s press conference on Thursday, he reiterated that he agrees with Barack Obama that the filibuster is a “relic of the Jim Crow era.”
Republican Sen. Tim Scott pointed out just one reason why that’s an epic self-own on the part of Democrats, because they used it against a bill he sponsored just last year:
Sen. Tim Scott: "It was a frustrating, irritating moment where the Democrats used a filibuster to block police reform that would have positively impacted disproportionately African American communities…They were for the filibuster before they were against the filibuster."

According to Fox News’ John Roberts, the Democrats used the filibuster 327 times last year alone.
