“If you would like to respond on my behalf, feel free to do so. However, I had assumed that I would be present to respond to my inquiries,” Zeldin stated.
On Thursday, Rep. Lee Zeldin became agitated with authors Ryan Lizza and Tara Palmeri of the POLITICO Playbook when Lizza pressed him to declare categorically that President Joe Biden won the 2020 election.
The New York Republican responded, “Yeah, Joe Biden’s the president of the United States.” And in such manner…
Is it won? In response to Zeldin’s vote against recognizing the Electoral College results in light of Trump’s baseless allegations of electoral fraud, Lizza stated at a POLITICO Playbook event.
I purposefully ask that he be declared the winner of the presidential election, Lizza remarked.
Zeldin replied, “Yes, and I continued with my answer. “If you would like to respond on my behalf, feel free to do so. But I had hoped to be present to respond to my inquiries.
Lizza clarified that he was inquiring as to whether Biden had won the presidency.
“I’ve already said yes twice, but now you’re asking me a third time. I’m unsure of your plans and how many more times you want me to say yes. But frankly, asking me a third time is a bit silly. But feel free to ask me once more,” Zeldin remarked.
Palmeri defended Lizza, claiming that he was simply elaborating to make sure it was accurate.
Zeldin remarked, “You have, a fourth time.”
Palmeri responded, “I wouldn’t call that a question.
Next, you can try for the fifth time, Zeldin said.
Is everything I say a question, I wonder? Palmeri laughed as he spoke. “We can continue.”
Zeldin responded, “Sure, let’s do it a sixth time.”
Zeldin protested the certification of the 2020 presidential election results on the House floor on January 6, following the bloody uprising at the Capitol, citing what he called “evidence-filled concerns” with the election’s administration. The 2020 presidential election did not involve massive fraud, according to the evidence.
Zeldin is actively considering a run for governor of New York in the wake of accusations of groping, sexual harassment, and berating phone calls made against Gov. Andrew Cuomo, who is under fire from many prominent Democrats and is being called to resign.
Cuomo should be removed from office, according to the majority of New York Assembly members, which would be sufficient grounds for his impeachment.
