What Trump forgot to mention: Bernie Sanders' response to the President's announcement

Joe Biden

The openly left-wing MSNBC network has apologized after labeling segregationist congressmen Republicans when they were actually Democrats.

Vice President Joe Biden angrily responded at Sen.

Biden, who spent more than three decades in the US Senate, named late senators James Eastland of MS and Herman Talmadge of Georgia, both Democrats who fiercely opposed desegregation, as opponents who were in his own party when he entered the chamber in 1973.

Speaking to a room full of wealthy donors in New York City's Carlyle Hotel, Biden said he would not "demonize" the rich and promised them that their lifestyles would not change under his watchful eye, the Hill reported. "The fact of the matter is, if we can't get a consensus, nothing happens except the abuse of power by the executive branch". "We can disagree in the margins". "But the one thing, the one thing the Democrat Party can not ever permit is to have anybody in it appear to be even understanding or respectful or friendly with people who they claim are racist, sexist, bigots, homophobes, and what have you".

Klein pointed out that Biden could have cited many examples of compromise.

Eastland, who died in 1986, was an avowed white supremacist known as the "voice of the white south" who came to symbolize white resistance to racial integration during the civil rights era and spoke of black people as "an inferior race".

Hunt made the error while previewing the upcoming coverage on her show.

Those remarks came at the same fundraising event in NY when Biden assured his well-heeled listeners that "nothing would fundamentally change" under his prospective presidency, and that rich people's "standard of living" would not be affected.

"This is all within our wheelhouse, we don't have to punish anybody", Biden said. Anita Dunn, a campaign surrogate for Biden, also didn't correct Hunt or label the former officials as Democrats. Well, after years of being silent on Biden during the Obama years, that "new left" is trying to tear down the man after praising him for so long.

"And old Herman Talmadge looked at me and said, 'Black folks don't like busing".

Mr Raab said the Labour leader was allowing "his anti-American prejudice to skew his moral compass and political judgment". When asked Monday whether he was considering military action against Iran, the president told TIME, "I wouldn't say that".

"Instead, he highlighted his ability to work with two segregationists - James Eastland of MS and Herman Talmadge".

The senior Democrat's remarks were awkwardly timed, coming one day before Juneteenth, the annual commemoration of the emancipation from slavery in 1865. We regret the error.

Biden has also been criticized for repeatedly commenting on the physical appearance of women on the campaign trail, and for refusing to explicitly apologize for his behavior.

Yet with the exception of Joe Biden (more on him in a minute), all of the Democratic candidates-certainly the leading ones-are pushing a massively expansionist agenda, thus putting themselves at odds with their own base.

Asked about why Warren was "catching up to [him] in polls", Sanders said his campaign is running "against a lot of problems", but reiterated that he thinks his campaign has the best chance against Trump.

Throughout his career, Biden has said the civil rights movement was his motivation for entering politics.

In the months before he announced his bid, Biden clarified remarks in which he called Vice President Mike Pence a "decent guy" after activists noted the Republican vice president's opposition to LGBTQ civil rights protections.

California Sen. Kamala Harris, a black presidential candidate, said Biden was "coddling" segregationists in a way that "suggests to me that he doesn't understand. the dark history of our country" - a characterization Biden's campaign rejects. "Eastland thought my multiracial family should be illegal & that whites were entitled to 'the pursuit of dead n*ggers'". What did they deserve to hear from white people like me?

Doing so helped Biden make his point in the starkest terms, but not without a price.
