White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki is attempting to deny President Joe Biden is responsible for the Major Baseball League decision last week to move the All-Star Game out of Georgia. 

Last week Biden said during an interview with ESPN that he would support a boycott of the Peach State by MLB. The MLB moved forward with the boycott and eliminated $100 million in "badly need revenue" from Cobb County. 

Now the White House is refusing to acknowledge Biden's role in the situation and argues he never called for a boycott, but instead for voting laws that make it easier to cast a ballot. New Georgia voting laws do just that by expanding early voting to 17 days.
