When asked about Sen. Kyrsten Sinema being chased into a bathroom by illegal immigrant activists pushing for her to approve his spending package, Joe Biden said that this harassment is “part of the process.”
“Do you think that those tactics are crossing a line?” the reporter asked.
WOW Biden just said Senator @kyrstensinema being harassed and cornered into a bathroom is just “part of the process.”
Joe’s own words.

Biden said that he doesn’t think that they’re appropriate tactics, but added “it happens to everybody.”
The president chuckled and added that the only people it doesn’t happen to are people with Secret Service protection.
“It’s part of the process,” he concluded before taking another question.
The liberal activists had confronted Sinema in a classroom at Arizona State University in Phoenix and followed her as she entered a stall in the bathroom. They continued shouting at her to support Biden’s “Build Back Better” package and filmed through the entire ordeal.
We wouldn’t have to resort to confronting @senatorsinema around Phx if she took meetings with the communities that elected her. She’s been completely inaccessible. We’re sick of the political games, stop playing with our lives.

Sinema and Sen. Joe Manchin have refused to support the $3.5-trillion social policy bill, causing massive outrage on the left.
