Sen. Sinema Pressured in Restroom; Biden Says It's "Part of the Process"

  • Executive, The Hill

In Brief: 
Arizona’s Democrat Senator, Kyrsten Sinema, was followed in the restroom by left-wing activists on Sunday who wanted her to pass Biden’s $3.5 trillion “Build Back Better” reconciliation bill. Sinema, who is hardly a conservative, was yelled at by activists and told she would be defeated if she didn’t vote for the bill. When asked about the incident, President Biden said that this “happens to everybody” and is part of the process.”

The Background: 
Biden’s $3.5 trillion “Build Back Better” reconciliation bill will destroy some 5.3 million jobs and plummet America’s GDP.

And there are two Democrats Senators holding up the bill’s approval: West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin and Arizona Sen. Kyrsten Sinema.

Both have been taking heat for their stance on the bill, but only Sinema has been chased into the bathroom by left-wing radicals. 

Despite recent backlash from the left, the Arizona senator has never identified as a conservative and has chosen to spend the majority of her time in office to push the liberal agenda. Sinema was a member of the Green Party until her switch to the Democrat Party in 2004. She has a record of working to pass LGBTQ legislation and is the second LGBTQ woman elected to the House of Representatives and the Senate.  However, Democrats now are standing against Sinema due to her hesitancy to pass Biden’s $3.5 trillion bill. 

The “activists” followed the Senator into a bathroom and videoed her. The video, posted online, shows Sinema entering a stall while one of the harassers tells a story about her grandfather being deported.

Then the activists tell Sinema that “we need the Build Back Better plan right now.”

On Monday, a reporter asked President Joe Biden about the incident, saying, “Do you think that those tactics are crossing a line?”

The President responded, “I don’t think they’re appropriate tactics, but it happens to everybody. The only people it doesn’t happen to are people who have Secret Service standing around them. So it’s part of the process.”

Notable Quotes: 

“Yesterday, several individuals disrupted my class at Arizona State University. After deceptively entering a locked, secure building, these individuals filmed and publicly posted videos of my students without their permission — including footage taken of both my students and I using a restroom.” - Arizona Senator Kyrsten Sinema

“An illegal alien is stalking a US Senator to demand passage of Biden’s reconciliation bill b/c it includes mass amnesty for illegals. In a functioning democracy, ICE would swiftly deport this person, but under Biden’s new edict (as the lawbreaker knows) she’s immune from removal.” - Stephen Miller, former Trump official
