The double standard is truly DEPLORABLE
Vice President Joe Biden has had his fair share of gaffes. We all do. However, when you’re running for President Of The United States, you’re held to a different standard. Or, we thought so.
Democrats have been silent through most of Biden’s gaffes. They think he’s the ONLY person that can defeat Trump in November. Gaffe after gaffe has brought Biden much criticism from the right.
The dustup occurred 17 minutes into the former vice president’s interview on “The Breakfast Club” – a nationally broadcast morning talk show popular with black listeners – when a Biden aide tried to end the interview, prompting the host to charge, “You can’t do that to black media.”
The presumptive Democratic presidential nominee stressed that his wife had an upcoming engagement, and suggested he would have to go whether dealing with “white media” or “black media.”
“Uh, oh … I’m in trouble,” he joked as he referred to making his wife late. Biden and his wife Jill Biden share the same studio in the basement of their home in Wilmington, Del.Fox News
Prominent Republicans immediately seized upon Biden’s gaffe, including the party’s only black senator, Tim Scott of South Carolina, who called the former vice president’s statements “the most arrogant, condescending comment I’ve heard in a very long time.”
“If you think about the numbers, 1.3 million African Americans voted for Trump. He’s saying [to] the 1.3 million African Americans that you’re not black,” Scott told Fox Business. “Who in the heck does he think he is?”
Lindsey Graham, Scott’s fellow South Carolina senator, tweeted that Biden’s comments “were truly offensive, but a rare and honest insight into liberals’ thinking. Liberals believe you really can’t be black, Latino, female, or intelligent unless you support their liberal agenda.”
Trump’s reelection campaign also weighed in on the controversy, posting a video of Biden’s exchange with Charlamagne to its official Twitter account along with the accompanying message: “Sorry to inform all the Black Trump Supporters that #YouAintBlack in @JoeBiden’s book.”
Some Democratic political consultants balked at Biden’s remarks, as well. “This is so embarrassing and hurtful I don’t even know where to begin,” tweeted Rodericka Applewhaite, a former staffer on Pete Buttigieg’s presidential campaign.
Meanwhile Biden’s campaign sought to manage the fallout online, with his senior adviser Symone Sanders insisting that the “comments made at the end of the Breakfast Club interview were in jest.”
Still, Sanders tweeted, “let’s be clear about what the VP was saying: he was making the distinction that he would put his record with the African American community up against Trump’s any day. Period.”Politico
Let me be clear. Joe Biden will get a pass. The Democratic party will not hold Biden accountable for his racist words. This happens often in the Democratic party. Their goal is to hold everyone who thinks differently accountable. They just don’t hold themselves accountable. The double standard is truly DEPLORABLE
