So much for unity! Conservatives jeer as Biden BACKS baseball league’s Georgia boycott over controversial voting security law

President Joe Biden has encouraged Major League Baseball to go ahead and pull out of Georgia in response to the state’s new election security law. What happened to all that unity he promised?, conservatives wondered.

Speaking to ESPN on Wednesday, Biden said he would “strongly support” the baseball league moving its All-Star game in July out of the state, in response to a Republican-authored election security law signed by Governor Brian Kemp last week.

“I think today’s professional athletes are acting incredibly responsibly. I would strongly support them doing that,” Biden said, calling the new law “Jim Crow on steroids” and falsely claiming that it would “close the polling place at five o’clock” so “working folks that I grew up with” would be prevented from voting.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Fact check: Georgia's new law does NOT close the polls at 5PM.
