Axios reporter Jonathan Swan highlighted the hypocrisy of congressional Democrats who are still eager to eliminate the filibuster.

On Tuesday, the Axios reporter appeared on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” to discuss his interview with Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., and her comments on the filibuster.

The article goes on to state the following:

During the interview, Tlaib insisted that the filibuster, a Senate procedure to delay or prevent voting on a bill, was a racist tool used for oppressive purposes. Swan, however, pressed Tlaib on the fact that Democrats used the filibuster numerous times during the Trump administration. He also questioned what Senate Democrats would have done without the filibuster during that time.


“It would have been unfortunate, of course,” Tlaib admitted to Swan.

Swan noted the hypocrisy of the Democrats while speaking with Scarborough Tuesday morning, saying, “In 2017, after Donald Trump took office, more than half of Senate Democrats including now Vice President Kamala Harris signed a letter and sent it to Senate leaders urging them to preserve the filibuster. The question that I have, some of the same Democrats talk about the racist history of filibuster being used to block civil rights. That, of course, was true, but it was also true in 2017. Is this an argument about political convenience or is it an argument about morality and ethics?”

“This could come back to bite Democrats if they do actually go down this path,” Swan warned.

  1. Yes, the filibuster was used by racists to fight against civil rights for black Americans. The most famous example was that of Sen. Robert Byrd (D-WV) who filibustered for 14 hours against the Voting Rights Act of 1964. When Byrd, who was also an Exalted Cyclops in the KKK, passed away in 2010, he was eulogized by then-Sen. Joe Biden, who lionized Byrd and acknowledged him as his political mentor.
