“I had actually let the campaign known I’d pulled back my support of Biden for now,” McInerney told CNBC, adding of Biden’s Thursday debate performance: “I don’t think he did well last night.

McInerney’s public admission marks the first major financier to sever ties with Biden, and may spark others to follow suit.

I would imagine I’m not alone,” he added.

McInerney was a lead bundler for President Obama’s first campaign, helping to raise at least $200,000 according to the Center for Responsive Politics.

Biden set off on a Bay Area fundraising tour Friday which will continue throughout the weekend. The former VP came under fire earlier this month at another fundraiser, where he fondly recalled working with two segregationist Democrats during his time as a Delaware Senator.

“At least there was some civility. We got things done. We didn’t agree on much of anything,” said Biden. “Today, you look at the other side and you’re the enemy.”

At Thursday night’s debate, 2020 contender Kamala Harris pounced on Biden – also knocking him over his opposition to federally mandated school busing programs, while the former VP stood there looking like a sour old man.

“It was hurtful to hear you talk about the reputations of two United States senators who built their reputations and career on the segregation of race in this country,” Harris said, adding “And it was not only that — you also worked with them to oppose busing.”

 

On Friday, Biden did damage control at a Rainbow PUSH Coalition conference in Chicago, telling the group founded by Rev. Jesse Jackson that “I never ever opposed voluntary busing and the program Sen. Harris participated in.”

The longtime former Delaware senator argued he’d long worked to address the “root causes” of education inequality for blacks and whites, including working to desegregate neighborhoods. He to his support for extending the Voting Rights Act, along with his opposition to an amendment that would have effectively banned busing, which “wasn’t the most popular vote in the country at the time.”

These rights are not up to the states to decide,” Biden said. “They’re our federal government’s duty to decide. It’s a constitutional question to protect the rights of every single American, and that’s always been my position.” –NPR

  1. The democrat candidates for president are the most extreme, Marxist collection of incompetents, in terms of real, non-government activities, that America has ever seen.

    Their supporters are one of three types of people – idiots, parasites, or criminals.

    1. You forgot “assholes, liars, cheaters, crooks and scumbags” Otherwise your comment was dead on center of your target.

      I personally believe that on this year’s July 4th we should all buy a gun and go out politician hunting.. The limit should be 100 per person.

      BTW ARE THEY OR ARE THEY NOT THE BIGGEST FIELD OF WHORES AND DIRTBAGS EVER ASSembled who think they should be President? Who wants to be ‘1st Whore ‘ who even her own family denounced or Corey “I never accomplished a God Damn Thing’ Booker’ or ANY of the merry band of idiot asshole moron Demoncraps .

      More than anything we need to imposeTERM LIMITS OF 4 YEARS IN THE HOUSE AND 8 IN THE SENATE . AND NO DOING 4 IN THE HOUSE THEN DOING 8 IN THE SENATE AND ALSO NO 8 YEARS AS VP PLUS 8 MORE AS COMMANDER IN CHIEF

  2. I HAVE NOT SEEN ONE THAT I WOULD VOTE FOR . THIS IS NOT THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY ANYMORE. CANNOT FIGURE OUT WHAT IT IS BUT NOT FOR AMERICA OR AMERICANS. THIS IS A PARTY FOR ILLEGALS AND FREE STUFF. A SOCIALIST IDEALS THAT WOULD TAKE THIS WONDERFUL COUNTRY DOWN . NONE OF THESE PEOPLE WILL BE PRESIDENT. TRUMP WILL BE AND THE DEMS WILL NOT WIN THE WHITEHOUSE AGAIN UNTIL THEY LOCATE THEIR MINDS WHERE EVER THEY WENT

    1. Democrat Chinese Secret, when resting from a long days difficulties bend over and stick your head up Hillaries HUGE DIRTY STINKY FAT ASS!Y2

  3. Kamala Harris claim to fame this week is that she confront Biden’s series of lies. For a month now, media has been showing photos of Biden saying one thing 10-15 years ago, which is totally opposite what he now says, and she simply pointed that out on TV. Being attacked by other Democrats has had the effect of destroying the Democrat Party, and Trump is correct, this makes him the only winner of this silly debate.

    1. Biden has a record of 45 years of public service in the Senate and as VP. How would you like to defend, explain, or even remember everything you said and did in the past 45 years? Trump, in contrast, can’t remember (or doesn’t care) what he said 10 or 15 minutes ago.

      1. That’s the sign of a genius. Do you want someone who dwells on every thing they ever did for 40 years and and think about it, or do you want someone who makes a informed decision and moves on to more important matters. The way Harris tells it she was so affected by busing in her earlier years that it negatively affects every decision she now makes.

  4. Biden is nothing more than a propped up buffoon who is perceived to be a moderate, likable candidate and ripe for vicious attacks by the Socialist leftists like Kampala Harris and her ilk who are now the face of new Democrat Party, (ushered in by the cowardly former moderate democrats like Bart Stupak, Evan Bayb, etc. who caved to the Leftists during the Obama admin. and quietly disappeared into the private sector). Their weapons of choice are phony outrage of ‘racism’ and everything ‘phobic’ because their far left socialist agenda to dismantle our Constitutional Republic isn’t a exactly a ‘winning’ message To woo the hard-working, patriotic voters, aka, deplorables—hence the frantic push for open borders. The emboldened rabid left are destructive predators who smell blood in the water and they have their marching orders to take out Joe Biden because he poses an obstacle to the “ fundamental transformation of America”., plain and simple!

  5. So, Joe, how are you going to integrate the housing, mandatory moves?
    Or are you going to buy $1million houses and move people in who can’t afford the Real Estate Taxes?

    The first one isn’t allowed under our Constitution.
    The second one has been tried and led to the Real Estate driven depression of the 21st Century.

  6. I remember Bill Clinton promised in his campaign he would wipe out student debt. Guess what? He lied! History repeats itself. Dems are offering freebies and we all know nothing is free!

  7. I had my theory that Trump asked Biden to talk something about a racism issue before Kamala was very angry at him because he has had a high voting percentage than other Democratic president candidates which means he would for sure wipe Trump’s fatty ass out on Election Day next year. So, my theory is that if Biden refused addressing about a racism issue, he would threaten Biden or if he wanted to save himself or got paid by Trump, he had to bring a racism issue. Like I said, after Kamala yelled at Biden, it led people to lose in their interests or respects to Biden which means they would probably focus on Trump more than focusing on Biden, so that Trump would win if any Democratic president candidate besides Biden lost a voting result. If Biden didn’t say, it means more and more people would vote for him. That is why it looked like to me that Trump has tried to rub everyone’s ass to just hope that he could win. After Kamala confronted, Biden didn’t say anything and sealed his mouth because he can’t tell the truth or Trump would threaten him. If he told the truth, Trump would be stuck for sure. Look at Trump’s long lost cousin or future husband Barr, he defended Trump and refused to show up the net following day. Robert Mueller didn’t make it to testify on a first day. About 2 or 3 weeks later, he finally showed up, but he didn’t explain everything very deep and all he said was “He (Trump) is a criminal”, that is it. I wouldn’t surprise that Trump already threatened to Barr and Mueller. Also, Trump also threatened Michael Cohen to not show up for his testify. About a month later, he finally testified. See, my point that Trump has loved to play games with people I mentioned their names here. I feel sorry for Cohen because Trump made him to do anything before he was sent to a prison for 3 years. Trump looked for a safe “environment” for him, instead of going to a prison and having him to either get impeached or jailed. Yes, Trump really is a very BIG SICKO and PSYCHOPATH guy at BIG TIME! I hope he will lose his vote next year.

    1. I agree with your conclusion but I don’t think we need to rely on conspiracy theories to get us there. All we have to do is listen to his remarks or follow hie tweets for a day

  8. Vote for the El Chapo Act, to fund the WAll and our nation will have funds to support the legal immigrants who are here. You Democrats are the ones who are “Stonewalling” “posturing” “Stalling” “All YOU ALL DO IS LOOK ANGRY AND MEAN ON TV. IF YOU ARE DO FULL OF ANGER TO WILL NOT AND CANNOT BE THE PRESIDENT OF AMERICA. OBAMA GOT AWAY WITH MANY CRIMES ALONG WITH HIS COHORT HILLARY. BUT THERE ARE THOSE LIKE JUDICIAL WATCH, FAITH AND FREEDOM COALITION, WHO I SUPPORT AND HAVE A LOT OF SHIT ON OBAMA AND HILARY. YOU NEED TO ALL GET ON YOUR KNEES AND REPENT. CALL UPON THE LORD AND HAVE HIM FORGIVE YOU, CLEANSE YOU, AND RESTORE YOU IN BODY SPIRIT AND MIND. “AN ANGRY DOG CAN NOT LEAD THE PACK INTO THE BATTLE AND WIN. ” YOUR SOCIALIST VALUES, YOUR MARXIST VALUES. YOUR FABIAN PHILOSOPHY, YOUR LIES ABOUT THE “RUSSIAN HOAX” THE “WASTED STONEWALLING, CUNNING MANIPULATING MUELLER INVESTIGATION WAS A JOKE, AND AN EXPENSIVE ONE. THE TOTAL CONCEPTS, DISTORTED VALUES, THE TWISTED REPORTS, THE TWISTED POLLS-ALL STACKED BY DEMOCRATS WHO ARE FUNDED BY GEORGE SOROS, AND THE CLINTONS, WHO ARE THE NUMBER ONE CRIMINALS IN AMERICAN POLITICAL HISTORY. THEY ARE WORSE THAN BONNIE AND CLYDE. HILARY-THE WITCH, NECROMANCER SHE IS… SHE IS A MODERN DAY JEZEBEEL, AND THE WITCH OF ENDOR IF YOU HAVE EVER READ THE BIBLE YOU KNOW WHAT I AM REFERRING TOO… MAY THE LORD JESUS CHRIST HAVE MERCY ON YOU DEMS WHO ARE NOT HONEST, REMEMBER VOTE FOR THE EL CHAPO ACT. I’M GOING TO WRITE TO SOMEONE TO MAKE IT A POLITICAL ISSUE BECAUSE THE REPUBLICANS WANT IT AND I AM ONE WHO WANTS IT AND I TALK TO PEOPLE ABOUT TELLING YOU DEMOCRATS TO VOTE FOR IT. ITS MORE THAN ENOUGH FOR THE MUCH NEEDED WALL, WITHOUT THE TAX PAYERS PAYING FORIT.
