PBS Correspondent Asks Biden What Dems Should Do About Republicans Running on 'False Claims About CRT'


PBS NewsHour correspondent Yamiche Alcindor did not attempt to appear impartial during President Joe Biden’s press conference on Wednesday.

Alcindor faced harsh criticism on social media for her conduct, which many deemed unprofessional and an act of activism instead of journalism.

After announcing newly-approved COVID vaccination eligibility for children ages 5-11, Biden was confronted by the outraged Alcindor about what Democrats can do, now that Republicans are “successfully running on culture war issues and false claims about Critical Race Theory.”

“What should Democrats possibly do differently to avoid similar losses in November, especially since Republicans are now successfully running on culture wars issues and false claims about critical race theory?” Alcindor asked.

Biden responded that the Democratic Party needs to “produce results,” he did not address the issue of CRT.

“People need a little breathing room, they’re overwhelmed,” Biden told Alcindor. “And what happened was I think we have to just produce results for them in order to change their standard of living and give them a little more breathing room.”

Unsatisfied, Alcindor continued to insert her opinion into her question, by calling Republicans liars.

“What’s your message, though, to Democratic voters, especially Black voters, who see Republicans running on race and education, lying about critical race theory and they’re worried that Democrats don’t have an effective way to push back on that?” Alcindor asked.

Biden continued to ignore touching on CRT.

“Well, I think that the whole answer is to just speak truth to that, lay out where we are,” Biden responded. “If you look at everything from my view on criminal justice system to my view on equal opportunity to my view on economic issues and all the things that have been what I’ve been pushing in legislation, each of the elements are overwhelmingly popular. We have to speak to them about, we have to speak to them and explain them.”

Biden continued, “look, I just think people are at a point, and it’s understandable, where there’s a whole lot of confusion. Everything from are you going to ever get COVID under control to are my kids going to be in school or they’re going to be able to stay in school to whether or not I’m going to get a tax break that allows me to be able to pay for the needs of my kids and my family. And they’re all things that we’re gonna- that I’m running on, will run on and I think we’ll do fine.”

  1. What do you expect from radical left lunatics, megalomaniacs, psychopaths and greedy corporations trying to turn the world into China so they can have it all. They are fanatical cultists in every sense of the word just like the Nazis and just like Nazis they will never stop trying to rule the world. They have no clue why people are voting them out because they are so fare over the edge they can’t see the simple reality that they have become the very raciest lunatics they say they appose and hate. The big problem comes when they start to realize they are done as they are realizing now they will quickly turn to extreme violence as they have done before and if you think 2020 was off the hinges you aint seen nothing yet.

    If the Dems thinks what there pushing is what people want or need, they are as useless as a broken rubber and have disconnected from reality lol

    They purposefully misconstrue the argument. No one is saying that in elementary school or high school kids are attending CRT 101 classes, they are saying exactly like common core, CRT is used as a part of the framework for developing the curriculum’s in these schools. The CRT priniciples are used and underpin the lesson plans.

    It’s purposefully disingenuous and unethical, but we do live in the age of partisan media where they don’t even pretend to try and be impartial any more and facts are just a thing that get in the way of opinion.

    To be clear… the leader of the free world honk-honk want to temp me with arguably palatable nuggets of propaganda and reeducation until I bend over and change my standard of living? Standard of education? From what, education to… oh, dividing racist bullshit? This guy has been a loser for nearly five decades and he isn’t even trying to go out on a decent note for the history books.

    Virginia spoke. We said no to woke bullshit and Marxist indoctrination. We also said we didn’t want to pay grocery tax anymore. This is the way.
