All eyes are on Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) as the vote for President Biden’s infrastructure bill falls on Thursday. Sinema met with Biden several times this week. Remarkably, she met with the president three times on Tuesday alone. However, she is still against a bill that costs as much as $3.5 trillion. Meanwhile rumors sprang that she was actually for it.

“Senator Sinema said publicly more than two months ago, before Senate passage of the bipartisan infrastructure bill, that she would not support a bill costing $3.5 trillion,” the statement read. “Claims that the Senator has not detailed her views to President Biden and Senator Schumer are false. Like our bipartisan infrastructure bill, the proposed budget reconciliation package reflects a proposal of President Biden’s–and President Biden and his team, along with Senator Schumer and his team, are fully aware of Senator Sinema’s priorities, concerns, and ideas.”

Yet the Arizona senator is not posturing publicly for the media, like many of her Democratic counterparts have.

“While we do not negotiate through the press–because Senator Sinema respects the integrity of those direct negotiations,” the statement went on. “She continues to engage directly in good-faith discussions with both President Biden and Senator Schumer to find common ground.”

White House press secretary Jen Psaki agreed, refusing to detail negotiations publicly Wednesday. But, she did go as far to say that it seems that Sinema would like a bill to ultimately pass. In addition, Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) has voiced his opposition to the bill.

Biden’s 60 Minutes Interview Horrifies White House: ‘Does NOT Reflect the OFFICIAL Position’

Uh oh. Someone let President Joe Biden speak by himself again and damage control immediately ensued. President Joe Biden’s “60 Minutes” interview which aired on CBS Sunday was 60 minutes of pure torture for viewers and 60 minutes of pure angst for the White House; everyone but the president himself.

60 Minutes’ official Twitter account publicly called out the President’s answers with an embarrassing statement that his own administration was in disagreement with him:

“President Biden tells 60 Minutes that U.S. men and women would defend Taiwan in the vent of a Chinese invasion. However, after our interview, a White House official told us that U.S. policy on Taiwan has not changed.”

CBS’ Scott Pelley also discussed inflation; an issue drastically affecting the welfare and wellbeing of families. Biden deflected with zero sympathy:

As for President Biden’s son Joe, he is sticking with the narrative that Hunter is the “smartest” person he knows and that “there’s not a single thing that I’ve observed at all that would affect me or the United States relative to my son Hunter.”

Biden also said that while the “proof of the pudding is in the eating” in response to being asked if he is fit to be President, Biden did not commit to saying whether or not he will run for re-election. His “intention” is to run again, “but that’s just intention” he said. “Is it a firm decision that I run again? That remains to be seen.”
