Biden also used the term ‘lynching’ when talking about Clinton’s impeachment

Yesterday, President Trump came under fire for a tweet where he compared the impeachment inquiry to a lynching.

“So some day, if a Democrat becomes President and the Republicans win the House, even by a tiny margin, they can impeach the President, without due process or fairness or any legal rights. All Republicans must remember what they are witnessing here – a lynching. But we will WIN!,” he tweeted.

Outrage from the left ensued.

Then Joe Biden weighed in, saying:  “Impeachment is not “lynching,” it is part of our Constitution. Our country has a dark, shameful history with lynching, and to even think about making this comparison is abhorrent. It’s despicable.”

Interestingly enough, Biden used the EXACT term when discussing Bill Clinton’s impeachment in the ’90s. Check the video out below.


After that surface, Biden apologized for using the term all those years ago.

“This wasn’t the right word to use and I’m sorry about that. Trump on the other hand chose his words deliberately today in his use of the word lynching and continues to stoke racial divides in this country daily,” he said on his Twitter account.
