Sharpton: Biden’s voting address a “you’re going to hell” speech, not a vote-getting one

Source: Fox News

“MSNBC’s Al Sharpton said President Biden’s emotionally charged address Tuesday didn’t seem like one intended to win support for sweeping Democratic election legislation, calling it a ‘you’re going to hell’ speech. Sharpton …. was on hand for Biden’s Atlanta address, where the president framed the debate over Democratic election overhauls in stark terms: Either you were with reviled figures like segregationist Gov. George Wallace and Confederate President Jefferson Davis, or on the side of civil rights leaders Martin Luther King Jr., and the late John Lewis, whom one of the proposed Democratic voting bills is named after. MSNBC ‘Morning Joe’ host Joe Scarborough said Biden’s rhetoric ‘may have overshot the mark’, as he seeks to persuade moderate Democrats like Sens. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., and Kyrsten Sinema, D-Ariz., to eliminate the filibuster, which creates a 60-vote threshold to advance legislation.” (01/12/22)
