Earlier this week President Biden signed a bill declaring Juneteenth to be a federal holiday.
MSNBC’s Joy Reid acknowledged the holiday this way:
Happy Juneteenth!!! — but only to those who believe everyone; Black, white brown, Asian or indigenous, has the right to vote, and that the results of an election should be respected. The rest of y’all should just consider today Saturday. Looking at you, @GOP. Be blessed. pic.twitter.com/6yWf6JLxKt

Happy Juneteenth to everybody except those who don’t respect election results? Oh my…

Reid obviously only meant Republicans who don’t automatically respect the results of an election, or she simply chooses to ignore reality:
Hillary tells @karaswisher "So there is an air of illegitimacy that surrounds Trump’s presidency, and that just infuriates them….Because I was the candidate that they basically stole an election from." https://t.co/NovSU9xxyo

"We had this little election back in 2018. And despite the final tally and the inauguration and the situation we find ourselves in, I do have very affirmative statement to make. We won.” pic.twitter.com/8FED6azZmr

The Left’s efforts to pretend Democrats don’t question the results of elections are nothing short of laughable, but not very surprising.
