CNN’s Don Lemon confronted President Joe Biden during Wednesday’s town hall about killing the filibuster.
Many Democrats have said the filibuster should be nuked because of Republicans blocking legislation, but some Democrats like Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema have opposed such a move.
One town hall attendee asked the president if it’s “logical to get rid of the filibuster” in the name of protecting democracy and voting rights.
Biden continued to decry election laws pushed by Republicans across the country and called it “Jim Crow on steroids.”
He went on to criticize “abuse of the filibuster” and suggested the Senate should go back to the days of having to “stand on the floor and hold the floor.”
