Lemon Presses Biden: The Filibuster Is a Relic of Jim Crow, Why Protect It?
LEMON: "But isn't that the only way you're going to get it done right now?"
BIDEN: "No, I don't believe that. I think we can get it done."
LEMON: "If you — you agree with the former president. He has called — as you called him, your old boss, that it's a relic of Jim Crow."
BIDEN: "It is."
LEMON: "If it's a relic of Jim Crow, it's been used to fight against civil rights legislation historically, why protect it?"
BIDEN: "There's no reason to protect it other than you're going to throw the entire Congress into chaos and nothing will get done. Nothing at all will get done. And there's a lot at stake. The most important one is the right to vote. That's the single most important one.”
