Joe Biden Apologies for Lynching Comment During Clinton Impeachment
The media screws up once again, marvelously. In a stunning ordeal, the media hurried to judge as well as condemn Trump for saying the impeachment resembled a lynching and even the Dem politicians got in on the act.
But as is usual with a media craze seeking clicks and also eyeballs not facts, they got it incorrect. Joe Biden at least had the stones to say sorry when a video clip emerged of his claiming the Clinton impeachment was ‘partisan lynching,” will the media keep pushing forward a fake narrative?
Look, there are plenty of things to slam Trump for– plenty– yet when the media as well as the Democrats create fake scandals to drive a media cycle it discredits them and also squashes any type of prospective future genuine assault– they don’t see it. And also it will hand Trump reelection landslide victory.
Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden on Tuesday denounced President Donald Trump’s comparison of the ongoing impeachment inquiry to a “lynching,” but in a 1998 interview, the then-senator from Delaware also invoked the term in reference to impeachment.
“Impeachment is not ‘lynching,’ it is part of our Constitution,” the former vice president said in a tweet on Tuesday. “Our country has a dark, shameful history with lynching, and to even think about making this comparison is abhorrent. It’s despicable.”
In an appearance on CNN in October 1998, however, Biden said the impending impeachment proceedings against then-President Bill Clinton could be viewed as a “partisan lynching.”
“Even if the President should be impeached, history is going to question whether or not this was just a partisan lynching or whether or not it was something that in fact met the standard, the very high bar, that was set by the founders as to what constituted an impeachable offense,” Biden said.
The Biden campaign declined to comment. Later on Tuesday night, Biden apologized for his words in a tweet.
“This wasn’t the right word to use and I’m sorry about that,” Biden said. “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.”
