This has been their plan all along.
In a recent interview with Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show,” Congressional Progressive Caucus Co-Chair Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-WA) told host Trevor Noah that Joe Biden is “movable,” later adding that she was “able to significantly push Joe Biden to do things that he hadn’t signed onto before.”
According to Breitbart, Jayapal told Noah, “I will be pushing him. I will — you know, as soon as we get him in the White House, and even before, with these task forces that we had, we were able to significantly push Joe Biden to do things that he hadn’t signed onto before. So, he is movable, he is listening, and he does understand that we need turnout from young people, from folks of color, and I’m going to do everything I can to help get him elected. And then, I’m going to be right out front making sure that we continue to push for the policies that we need as a country.”
