White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki had to plow through MSNBC host Mehdi Hasan’s interruptions to complete her answer on President Joe Biden’s push for voting rights.

Ms. Psaki was Mr. Hasan’s guest on Thursday night’s edition of MSNBC’s The 11th Hour, during which the subject of voting rights came up.

Hasan asked about the president’s speech in support of the Freedom to Vote Act and the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act, during which he called for an exception or other change to the Senate rules.
