Fox chose to talk about Bill Gates divorce instead of airing the powerful voting rights speech
President Joe Biden on Tuesday gave his strongest push to date for Democrats’ voting rights bills in Congress as a counter to Republican-backed voter restrictions in dozens of states around the country predicated on former President Donald Trump’s “big lie” of a rigged election.
“No other election has ever been held under such scrutiny or such high standards,” he said in a speech in Philadelphia’s National Constitution Center, amid an exhibit titled “Civil War and Reconstruction.”
“The big lie is just that: a big lie,” Biden continued.
The address was scheduled in part to allay concerns from voting rights advocates that he and his White House are not doing enough to push federal legislation.
Biden said the 2020 election “should be celebrated, an example of America at its best.”
