President Joe Biden is "playing the race card" in his fight for voting reform, according to Alveda King, niece of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and a former Georgia state representative. King, in an interview on the podcast "John Solomon Reports," claimed that Biden, Vice President Kamala Harris, as well as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, are "stirring up emotions to get their way," in an effort to pass the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act and the Freedom to Vote Act. King noted that before her uncle became a leader in the civil rights movement he was a "prophet and a preacher," and demanded, "You have to put all of that together and represent human dignity from the womb to the tomb."

It's like having temper tantrums when you [are] in the highest seats in this office." King also said that her uncle "believed in appropriate voting and legislation and the laws, but he said, 'the law can't make you love me, but it can keep you from lynching me.' " King's comments follow President Biden's statement on Wednesday regarding the legitimacy of the upcoming midterm elections. Which, Biden says, could depend on Democrats passing voting rights legislation. [tweet_embed] January 25, 2022[/tweet_embed] “I’m not saying it’s going to be legit. The increase in the prospect of being illegitimate is in direct proportion to us not being able to get these reforms passed,” The President said during his second solo press conference at the White House, referring to the 2022 election. He acknowledged that he hasn’t given up on passing voting rights legislation to counteract new voting laws being implemented by Republicans at the state level. “You’re not going to see me, and I don’t think you’re going to see the Democratic Party, give up on coming back, assuming that the attempt fails today,” he said. Senate Democrats are pursuing a doomed effort on the floor Wednesday to pass voting rights legislation. [tweet_embed] January 25, 2022[/tweet_embed] The effort will not succeed because Republicans will block it. Also, Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona, two centrist Democrats, oppose making changes to the filibuster to allow it to pass on a majority vote. The President asserted that it “depends” earlier in the press conference when asked if he thinks the upcoming election results will be legitimate if voting rights legislation doesn’t pass. “Well, it all depends on whether or not we’re able to make the case to the American people that some of this is being set up to try to alter the outcome of the election,” he insisted.
