George Stephanopoulos Visibly Angered By Stephen Miller’s Lies
White House senior advisor doubles down on unsubstantiated NH voter fraud claims: â€œVoter fraud is a serious problem in this countryâ€ pic.twitter.com/DC6lVPQznz

ABC News host George Stephanopoulos shut down White House senior policy adviser Stephen Miller on Sunday, after Miller doubled down on President Donald Trump’s false claims this week about voter fraud in New Hampshire.Â
“Do you have that evidence?”Â Stephanopoulos asked on ABC’s “This Week.” Â
Miller responded that he once worked on a campaign in New Hampshire, and it’s “widely known by anybody who’s worked in New Hampshire politics.”Â
“Hold on a second, you just claimed again that there was illegal voting in New Hampshire, people bused in from the state of Massachusetts. Do you have any evidence to back that up?” Stephanopoulos said.Â
“George, go to New Hampshire, talk to anybody who’s worked in politics there for a long time. Everybody’s aware of the problem in New Hampshire with respect to bringing in voters,” Miller said.Â
“I’m asking you as the White House senior policy adviser,” Stephanopoulos interrupted. “The president made a statement saying he was the victim of voter fraud, people being bused from Massachusetts to New Hampshire. Do you have any evidence?”Â
“If this is an issue that interests you, then we can talk about it more in the future,” Miller responded. Â
“Just for the record, you have provided absolutely no evidence,” Stephanopoulos eventually said. “You have provided zero evidence that the president was the victim of massive voter fraud in New Hampshire. You have provided zero evidence of the president’s claim that he would have won the popular vote if 3-5 million illegal immigrants hadn’t voted. Zero evidence for either one of those claims. Thanks a lot of joining us this morning.”Â

I know we can’t prove that someone is lying, but look at Miller as he repeats these false claims & tell me he isn’t lying through his teeth. https://t.co/hTzWbFQyrM

Stephen Miller says this is “not the venue” to lay out all the evidence (any?) of NH buses / voter fraud. What is the venue? https://t.co/kfdRIN0MD7

Trump’s MAGA Supporters Chant Profanities Within ‘Clear’ Earshot of Young Kids Biden Was Talking to Outdoors
Trump’s MAGA supporters were out in full force Friday afternoon, chanting “F**k Biden,” waving flags with the same slogan, along with ones that falsely claim “Trump won,” as President Joe Biden spoke with young children outside a Connecticut child development center.

“Around 50 more Trump supporters,” according to the White House press pool, “gathered a street away from the center. They chanted ‘F*** Joe Biden. He’s not our president.’ They also shouted ‘traitors’ as a coda while we walked inside.”
Minutes later the press pool reported President Biden “entered the playground at 1:25, greeted by some gregarious children. One gave him a hug, as he kneeled to talk. Another, wearing an American flag t-shirt, pointed out parts of the playground.”

But then, confirmation that the Trump supporters’ profanity could be heard by the young children and the President.
“From the playground the pool could still hear protesters chanting from the curb outside. More expletives. More yelling,” the pool reports.
NBC News White House Correspondent Mike Memoli also confirms:
Per radio pool, while @POTUS spent time meeting toddlers at an outdoor playground, Trump supporters gathered across street could be clearly heard shouting a now-familiar expletive phrase involving his name

President Biden later made televised remarks promoting his “Build Back Better” agenda, and talking about how improvements to infrastructure will help young children.
Biden Justice Dept. to Formally Petition Supreme Court to Block Unconstitutional Texas Abortion Ban
The Biden Dept. of Justice will formally ask the U.S. Supreme Court to block Texas’ near-total ban on abortion, one many legal experts say is unconstitutional.
CNN reports the DOJ will make the formal request to block implementation of the law “while legal challenges play out, a department spokesperson said Friday.”
The DOJ has been filing requests with lower courts, but in an unusual set of circumstances the Fifth Circuit, one of the nation’s most conservative courts of appeal, has sided with the State of Texas instead of judges who have moved to block the new type of law.
This will be seen as a test of the 6-3 majority conservative Supreme Court, that repeatedly bent to then-President Donald Trump’s frequent requests, as he bypassed lower courts frequently to implement his polices that were often challenged by civil rights groups.
Baseball-Bat Wielding Woman Bites Capitol Police Officer: Report
A woman wielding a baseball bat who “appeared agitated” allegedly attacked U.S. Capitol Police officers Friday morning including by biting one of them.
Police say several officers approached her, but she “did not cooperate” and “instead started yelling at them. When she raised her bat, the officers tried to take it,” WJLA reports.
The woman, identified as Olivia Romano, 25, “allegedly became combative and bit one of the officers, police report.” She was taken into custody.
WFLA points to a tweet in which Romano allegedly accuses the Secret Service of illegally arresting “Indigenious [sic] Water Protectors & allies.”
The Biden White House on Friday pledged “to treat climate change as ‘systemic’ financial risk,” Axios reports.
2) Officers then moved in on the suspect and she bit a USCP officer.
Fox is told she will be charged with assaulting a Capitol Police Officer.
She is now on the ground on the West Front of the Capitol claiming she was “arrested illegally” and claiming police battery.
