Too ‘civil'? What if Joe Biden knows what he’s doing?

Too ‘civil'? What if Joe Biden knows what he’s doing?

He said of his relationships with Eastland and another staunch segregationist and southern Democrat, Sen. "He's asking you to apologize". But waxing nostalgic for the good old times, when racists and non-racists could work together sounds eerily close to the idea of there being "very fine people" on both sides of a white supremacist protest. "I've been involved in civil rights my whole career, period, period, period".

No reasonable person thinks that Biden was defending or even sympathetic to segregation.

The Express, a free daily newspaper published by the Washington Post, wrongly identified segregationist Democratic senators James Eastland and Herman Talmadge as Republicans in a Friday issue. The former vice president recalled the "civility" of the Senate in the'70s and '80s at a fundraiser, touting his experience working with Eastland and Talmadge. James Eastland & Herman Talmadge were Republicans.

Yet even in that Senate, Biden said, "At least there was some civility".

Biden further stated: "We didn't agree on much of anything".

"You know that some of the other issues, he's got to evolve with the times, which he has", O'Brien added. Booker said he was disappointed by Biden's remarks. "I haven't always been right" on criminal justice, he said earlier this year. He was "best known nationally as a symbol of Southern resistance to racial desegregation" and described black people as belonging to an "inferior race", according to his obituary in the New York Times.

Biden's comments drew backlash from his Democratic rivals, including Sens.

"Cory shared directly what he said publicly - including helping Vice President Biden understand why the word "boy" is painful to so many", said Sabrina Singh, a Booker campaign spokeswoman. "And you tried to help me out", Lemon said in an on-air discussion with colleague Chris Cuomo. "I never thought I'd say it".

Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders won the backing of 17%; Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren, 13%; South Bend., Ind. Mayor Pete Buttigieg, 11% and California Senator Kamala Harris 7%.

"He has served our country in a very noble way", Harris said.

Other 2020 candidates, including Rep. John Delaney, D-Md., Sen.

At the NY fundraiser, Biden pushed back against leftist critics of his desire to work with Republicans given the fierce partisanship of President Donald Trump and his allies.

Talking points sent out from Biden's campaign encouraged surrogates and supporters to compare the blatantly racist senators Biden cited with current Republican lawmakers in an attempt to frame his comments. Probably me more than you.

"Here's the deal. I could not have disagreed with them more".

He added that despite those major differences, the Senate was able to sign legislation extending to the Voting Rights Act of 1965.

Senator Cory Booker has called for Biden to apologize for the comments, but Biden refused, saying it's Booker who should apologize. "There's not a racist bone in my body". The New Jersey Democrat's campaign released a statement on Thursday calling on Biden to "take responsibility for what he said and apologize to those who were hurt".

He told CNN: "As a black man in America, I know the deeply harmful and hurtful usage of the word boy and how it was used to dehumanise and degrade". (Laughter) And you wonder - you know, it's apropos of nothing.

Twenty-two Democratic presidential candidates spent the weekend campaigning in SC, where the majority of the state's Democratic primary electorate is black. That is a disingenuous take. That was inartful.' I didn't mean in it that way and I think we have to - sometimes people say things in a conversation and you get what I'm trying to say, but people turn it into something else. "You don't like some of the stuff he has done, say that, but you can't call the dude a racist".
