Democrats slam Biden over segregationists comments

The Democrats are eating their own and Uncle Joe is currently on the chopping block.

After comments the former Vice President made about segregationists, several other prominent Democrats running for the Democratic nomination have slammed his statements, including California Senator Kamala Harris.

“To coddle the reputations of segregationists, of people who if they had their way I would literally not be standing here as a member of the U.S. Senate … it’s misinformed and it’s wrong. … The Ku Klux Klan celebrated the election of one of them,” she said.

New Jersey Senator Cory Booker was not pleased either.

“You don’t joke about calling black men ‘boys.’ Vice President Biden’s relationships with proud segregationists are not the model for how we make America a safer and more inclusive place for Black people, and for everyone. I have to tell Vice President Biden, as someone I respect, that he is wrong for using his relationships with Eastland and Talmadge as examples of how to bring our country together,” he said.

He also went on CNN to talk about Biden’s comments.

So far, Biden hasn’t apologized even though Democrats have called for him to do so. But we all know one is probably coming based on previous flip flops by the Democratic front runner.
