Biden says Democrats and Republicans can work together, just like he worked with segregationists

This isn’t a gaffe, this is a serious case of foot in mouth disease.

Biden sucks ass. All cons.

Constantly touching women inappropriately and admittedly best friends with Republicans. Centrism is just conservatism/neoliberalism. Which is bad.

I hope this last bit is his nail in the coffin.

Biden is demonstrating really well why his previous presidential campaigns flopped so badly. We can only hope that his poll numbers will tank.

I'm hearing echoes of how people talked about Trump early on.

Trump never ran before 2016 though. Biden has run twice before and barely made any traction either time

There's a stark difference between the left and right.

Trump says treat women like meat and the degenerates who support him like that talk. It works on the right. Al Franken poses for a photo in bad taste, and what's the last you heard from Al Franken? The left doesn't play that [expletive]. We make our Al Frankens go away. The right revels in it, celebrates scumbags like Trump and Judge Moore.

Biden might not need to hold up to very granular scrutiny, he might just need to keep showing up in front of a microphone and a camera to talk his way out of favor with the Dems.

So...I’m not a Biden fan. But he’s saying Booker should apologize for calling him racist, not for saying segregation was bad. He’s saying his record is in standing with civil rights and leading for change on civil rights. So let’s talk about his record and his stances on civil rights, and knock them down when they deserved being knocked down, rather than saying that he wants Booker to apologize for being anti-segregation, which is just a flat-out dumb thing for Slate to print and something that is nowhere in the context of what Biden says in that Tweeted clip. He’s not hitting back over a segregationist senator. He’s hitting back over being called racist. Maybe Biden’s racist: this clip doesn’t demonstrate that.
