While discussing his political support on Wednesday, former vice president and presidential hopeful Joe Biden claimed that he came “out of the black community.”
Someone get this man a Snickers bar. You’re not you when you’re hungry….
“I come out of the black community in terms of my support,” Biden said during the fifth Democrat presidential debate. He also claimed that former president Barack Obama chose him to be his running mate because of his “relationship with the black community.”
“One of the reasons I was picked to be vice president was because of my relationship, long-standing relationship with the black community,” Biden said, “I was part of that coalition.”
Obama’s pick of Biden as his running mate in 2007, however, was widely seenas an outreach to white blue-collar voters, as he had roots in Scranton, Pennsylvania.
Biden added that the three former chairmen of the Congressional Black Caucus endorsed him, in addition to “the only African-American woman who’d ever been elected to the United States Senate.”
However, that was a complete gaffe and was quickly corrected by presidential candidates Cory Booker and Kamala Harris. Awkward.
Watch for yourself:
Biden’s record on African-American issues has become a focal point by Democrats in the 2020 primary, who criticized him for supporting segregated busing in Delaware and supporting the 1990’s crime bill that incarcerated black Americans at a higher rate.
Biden was also criticized for proudly recalling working with avowed segregationists in the Senate, such as Democrat Senators James Eastland of Mississippi and Herman Talmadge of Georgia.
“He never called me boy, he always called me son,” Biden said about Eastland.
Either Biden is getting old and senile or he simply can’t keep up with the lies anymore. In either case, he should not be running for president. The man has some serious issues. Perhaps his biggest, aside from being a liar, is his inappropriate hunger for women in and little girls. They don’t cal him Creepy Uncle Joe for nothing!
