‘Give me a break’: Biden slams Georgia election-reform bill as an ‘atrocity’

In the aftermath of widespread uncertainty and speculation surrounding the outcome of November’s election, Georgia lawmakers passed a range of reforms aimed at tightening ballot security and ensuring voter integrity.

Shortly after those measures were signed into law this week by Republican Gov. Brian Kemp, President Joe Biden spoke out to clearly voice his displeasure.

“Nothing to do with decency”

Calling the statewide election-related reforms an “atrocity,” the president went on to hyperbolically compare them to the racist segregation laws implemented during the Jim Crow era.

Biden’s over-the-top comparison came in the form of a formal statement issued by the White House on Friday. He also expressed outrage in remarks to reporters prior to boarding Marine One the same day.

“It’s an atrocity,” the president replied. “The idea — if you want any indication that it has nothing to do with fairness, nothing to do with decency — they passed a law saying you can’t provide water for people standing in line while they’re waiting to vote.”

Biden further asserted that critics “don’t need anything else to know that this is nothing but punitive design to keep people from voting.”

Reiterating his opposition to one specific, he added: “You can’t provide water for people about to vote? Give me a break.”

“Not as strong”

After arriving in Delaware later in the day, Biden fielded a reporter’s question about his “strong words” regarding the Georgia election law.

Instead of backing down from his assertions, however, he said that his remarks were “not as strong” as he had been thinking.

As for a possible response from his administration, Biden affirmed that his Department of Justice “is taking a look” at the Georgia law to determine if it is illegal or unconstitutional and could be challenged at the federal level.

The president is not the only public figure to register concerns about the provision banning volunteers from distributing food and water to voters waiting in line. As PolitiFact explained, however, the measure has been somewhat misconstrued and actually just bolsters existing Georgia law that prohibits any “gift-giving” to voters by candidates or advocacy groups acting on their behalf.

Other provisions in the new law include allowing the state to take control of poorly performing local election boards as well as reducing the span of time during which a special runoff election can be held.

    1. I can only AGREE with you Sandra……In the 51 years I now have lived in the USA, I have NEVER seen anything THIS bad..

  3. What an absolute FOOL – trying to steal another ELECTION 1 STOLEN ELECTION WASNT ENOUGH!!!! BOTER IS NEEDED otherwise no need to vote!!!!

  4. I fail to see why presenting ID to vote is racist. But it appears that everything that does not agree with the left is racist. I no longe4 think they know the meaning of the word anymore. You have to show ID to go to the doctor, buy a car, buy a house, open a bank account. It is needed for a fair election to insure that only people eligible to vote do so.
    They are only against it because then it will be harder for them to cheat.

    1. It isn’t racist at all, Mary! But its the only defense the vacuous liberals have anymore, as they attempt to take away our Constitutional rights and gain voters! The word lost its true meaning long ago, and I believe is beginning to affect millions of people just the opposite of what the Democrats want. It has become so commonplace that I think millions of us have closed our ears to it at this point!! The TRUE racists are those who see color and ethnicity before anything else — seems rather superficial to me, how about you? 🙁

    2. You forgit that you akso need a photo ID driver’s license and every medical procedure I’ve had required a photo ID

  5. Biden the states handle their own business they do not need any outside influence from the likes of you or anyone else in this corrupt government. My advice to you go get a brain transplant of that of a chimpanzee this way you both might just have the same extremely low brain IQ. Just some food for thought.

  6. Shouldn’t Biden and his laughing VP need to be impeached for causing a crisis and death on the border…I suppose they think the families that live on the border that the illegals Biden and Harris allowed in r getting their homes broken into and stolen money…livestock..not saying afraid for their own lives….this is all on Biden and Kamala…get your heads out of your behinds and get this stopped…people in there homes are being abused …I bet money they won’t vote Democrate again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    1. Sorry to say, don’t bet on them not voting democrat any more. The stupidity of the American voter has no bounds.

  7. The rampage they are going on and he is then it is time to take the guns away from this administration. The wild field trip they are taking us thru is amazing.

  8. Of course he is angry. Lax voter security got him his job. It has to remain “security deficient” for his re-election and the ruination of this great country.

  9. Agree with all posts! Mr. Biden, you want to see an atrocity? Look in the damned mirror! You will see the biggest atrocity ever foisted upon the American people!

  10. Are you all looking at what is happening in the seas around China and Taiwan you may be in a war just now against China.
    Apparently the chinese are trying to take over the whole of the seas in the area as well as invading Taiwan.
    Pray this does not happen as it could escalate into the third world war.

  11. Biden is slamming Georgia for tightening its voting rules, yet he is pushing to eliminate the Second item in the bill of rights with an executive order? What’s wrong with picture?

  12. Anything g that stands for truth, righteousness and justice and law and order will be an atrocity to left .Just finished reading The Present Darkness by Frank Perritti.It really shows us the demonic behaviour of the democrats

  13. All Georgia is trying to do is make the voting process on the up and up making it harder for one party or the other to lie and cheat.The democrat party knows that all the illegal aliens and people who have been dead for years will vote for Biden and he doesn’t want anything to hinder them from voting.He got away with it one time he expected to get away with it again.The louder he gets and the more noise the Democrats make the more guilty they look.I only hope the rest of the states follow Georgia’s lead in this regard.

  14. Daffy Duck (Biden) is wacked out. Doesn’t any Demo. read or know the Constitution. Only Americans can vote not all the illegals there letting in the country (along with diseases). Biden has beginnings of dementia (my mother had it) and he’s getting worse. He has no right running a country because he is not president but a puppet for anyone and everyone. This is dangerous and sad for a great country as America. ,

  15. If your cognitive abilities weren’t so severely damaged, then maybe someone would care what you thought.

  16. American’s are not going to put up with this for long we need to stop this communist bull crap 👌🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

  17. Biden explodes??? This is not what we want to see in a President, if he gets mad at Putin again or Putin gets mad at him, is Biden going to explode & blow every one up. He needs to be IMPEACHED!!!
