Joe Biden is taking heat from fellow Democrat presidential candidates for reminiscing about how well he got along with the old segregationist senators Eastland and Talmadge.
Biden was trying to make the point that even in disagreement there should be civility.
Booker, de Blasio, Harris and Beto were the first to jump on him for suspected lack of commitment to civil rights. I’m sure there’ll be more to come. The article doesn’t say if Beto was flapping his arms or not.
I believe Biden is on the side of civil rights. He’s spent his career telling the perpetual lie that he was involved in the civil rights marches.
Any issue he cares about is worth lying about.
