Stacey Abrams, perhaps inadvertently, said the quiet part out loud about Joe Biden when she appeared on MSNBC’s “Deadline” on Friday and spoke to host Nicolle Wallace about the president and his popularity.
What happened was that Wallace, obviously trying to boost Abrams in the runup to the Georgia gubernatorial race, one expected to be bitterly fought given Georgia’s surprising current status as a purple state, asked Abrams about Biden and how he relates to the race in Georgia, saying :
“ You’re close to president Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris. They won the state of Georgia. What are the piece that are most popular there, what sorts of things, where is his message most resonant, around infrastructure, or what issues are resonating the most with Georgians. ”
Abrams, in her response, attempted to bash the GOP and the longtime Republican leadership of Georgia, but, in her rambling rant, ended up accidentally saying what no one on the left wants to say about Biden: that he’s just not that popular.
She began by attacking Georgia’s Republican leadership, saying :
“ For twenty years, Georgians have been beating our heads against the wall, demanding of our leadership, Republican leadership, to do something about broadband. 40% of Georgians don’t have access to reliable broadband, or they can’t afford it .”

Why she’d choose to focus on “broadband access” at a time when inflation is sky high and crime is ravaging Atlanta is unclear, but that’s the issue she stuck to, continuing with it and trying to bring up Biden’s once somewhat accomplishment, the infrastructure bill, saying: Because of the infrastructure bill, because of President Biden but also because of Senators Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff and millions of dollars are pouring […]
They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We just launched a GiveSendGo page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
