Joe Biden Compares Trump to Segregationist George Wallace

Biden, in California for a two-day swing to campaign and fundraise, told a gathering that Trump is “more George Wallace than George Washington.”

Wallace, remembered for his white supremacist views, served as Alabama’s governor for 20 years, beginning in 1967, and unsuccessfully sought the Democratic presidential nomination several times.

His 1972 presidential bid ended when he was shot, but he survived. Wallace died in 1998.

Biden’s comment came days after Trump said in a tweet that four U.S. congresswomen of color “should go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came.”

The tweet kicked off a week-long furor in Washington, with Democrats, and some Republicans, denouncing the comment as racist. Three of the four congresswomen were born in the United States, and all are U.S. citizens.

“Our children are listening to this. What the president says matters. It matters, because the president is the face of the nation,” Biden said in California.

Trump’s re-election campaign responded with a series of tweets highlighting what they said were Biden’s own past links to Wallace.

Biden, 76, says he was inspired to launch his 2020 White House bid after a 2017 white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, where a woman protesting was murdered. After the rally Trump said that there were “good people on both sides.”

Biden, who served under former Democratic president Barack Obama, the first black U.S. president, has found his own record on race in the spotlight since launching his White House bid.

Presidential rival Kamala Harris, a U.S. senator from California and a woman of color, challenged Biden on the issue during the first Democratic debate, leading to its most contentious exchange.

Biden has also tried to tamp down criticism after recent comments that he, as a U.S. senator from Delaware in the 1970s, worked with two Southern segregationist senators as a way to get things done.

Biden has stressed that he entered politics in the early 1970s to fight for civil rights for minorities and civil liberties.

Biden and Harris are two of 25 Democratic candidates vying to become the party’s nominee to take on Trump in the November 2020 election. The two Democrats will face off in a second televised debate on July 31.

  2. Anyone in their right mind would know what President Trump was referring to when he said those 4 women should go back to their own countries and help their people. 3 of the 4 may have been born in the United States but all 4 still want to be represented by their heritage of another country and not the United States where US Taxpayers pay their salaries and not wages. Wages are EARNED!!!

  3. BIDEN! THIS GUY HAS MUCH BAGGAGE TO BE RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT AND WHILE DOING THAT, HE ATTACKS PRESIDENT TRUMP. COMPARING TRUMP AND BIDEN, YOU WILL THAT THE PRESIDENT IS COMMITTED MAKING AMERICA GREAT AGAIN, HE HAS AND STILL DOING THAT IN SPITE OF THE DEMOC-RATS CONSTANTLY ATTACKING HIM, DAY IN AND DAY OUT 7/24, THE PRESIDENT DOES WHAT HE SAYS, UNLIKE THE LEFT.

  4. Joe Biden just completely goes out of the way to disgrace himself. He has far from a stellar record as it relates to racial issues. He’s like every family’s crazy old uncle who lives in the attic every time he comes out and opens his mouth he makes a bigger idiot and fool out of himself. The only thing that Democrats talk about is how they want to defeat President Trump and they relate everything to race. The Democrats have not accomplished anything for the American people and the US in decades. They’ve made it crystal clear they don’t care about the American workers and the only thing they’re busy doing is stuffing their pockets with American taxpayer’s money and spending the exorbitant expense accounts again all paid for by the American taxpayers while at the same time totally disrespecting and ignoring the needs of the people that they were elected to serve. The Democrats should have no right to vote themselves raises and to having Cadillac medical and retirement plans. They should be covered under the affordable care act and should be paying for their own medical insurance and they certainly should be paying into Social Security and if they need additional pension coverage get their own 401Ks just as we the people have to do. The Democrats, during President Johnson’s tenure, Created a loophole in which the Social Security fund could be raided. That’s one of the reasons why Social Security fund is so low and in such trouble. The Democrats and all politicians paying into the Social Security fund and the closing of that loophole will absolutely secure Social Security for those working class Americans who have paid into it all of their lives. Social Security is not an entitlement program. Wake up America we have to take back our country and we need to do it now and we absolutely must get rid of all divisive, treasonous, socialist anti-American politicians who are only looking out for themselves.

  5. Biden is an idiot – however along with those 4 “woman” whatever their names are PLEASE you all just keep talking that will keep a Republican in the WH for next 10 years at least. I don’t know who is the worst of lot but I do that “aoc” has already destroyed the opportunity for new jobs & money coming into Manhattan by stopping Amazon from opening a warehouse in lower Manhattan. Its the dead brain democrats that are destroying America – we don’t need anymore people in America WE CANNOT SUPPORT THEM – TRUMP STAY HOME & MAKE YOUR COUNTRY BETTER. THEY ONLY WANT TO COME HER FOR THE HANDOUTS.

  6. Biden, along with the 4 radical idiots, are the gifts that keep on giving. If it were not for the anti American main stream media, even ignorant Americans would know all the real racist things that the so called dems have said, especially the last administration.

  7. I can’t see voting for someone like Biden who has an IQ of a 12 year old kid a 12 year old knows how to keep his hands off of females and not being all over them.

  8. Biden – Clearly a CASE STUDY FOR “DEMENTIA”. Listen to the “brain gaps” when he speaks……………he can’t remember what the hell he is saying……………………This is the way Democrats put in office, FIGUREHEAD PRESIDENTS, just like the last one they had. The “shadow” would be dictating Biden. (as it is doing now)
