Senator Josh Hawley (R-MO) blasted President Joe Biden for recent remarks suggesting the passage of the voting rights bill may have bearing on whether or not the midterm elections are legitimate. Here’s what Joe said earlier this week when a reporter asked him if the midterm elections will be fair if the voting rights bill isn’t passed:
REPORTER: Will the midterm elections be fair and legitimate if the voting bill isn't passed?

“It depends on whether or not we’ll be able to make the case to the American people that some of this is being set up to try to alter the outcome of the election.”
Hawley says Biden is already making excuses for November:
“That’s what this is all about. Democrats don’t accept elections that they don’t win. I mean, it happened in 2000, it happened in 2004, it happened in 2016. Now it’s going to be 2022. If Joe Biden thought that his party was going to win these elections, then all would be fine.”
“But he thinks, and because the polls suggest, he’s going to lose them. His party’s going to lose them — the House and the Senate — and therefore, they’re illegitimate. I mean, it’s dangerous, it’s wrong, it’s ridiculous,” the Missouri senator insisted.
