President Joe Biden on Monday appeared to downplay liberal activists' weekend harassment of Sen. Kyrsten Sinema, D-Ariz., saying the stunning videotaped bathroom confrontation was "part of the process" and "happens to everybody," further inflaming an issue that's entangled Democrats on all levels — from the grass roots to the White House.
The incident with Sinema occurred Sunday as protesters, who also filmed and posted a video of the encounter, badgered the senator about her steadfast opposition to Biden's $3.5 trillion economic recovery plan. The activists hounding Sinema, who was interrupted as she taught a class at Arizona State University, became so aggressive that the lawmaker fled into a toilet stall. Even inside the bathroom, protesters continued to harangue her — and shoot video, with the clip being viewed nearly 5 million times on Twitter by Monday.
