Speaking at a roundtable discussion in Philadelphia on Thursday, Democrat presidential frontrunner Joe Biden claimed the death of George Floyd has already had a greater impact on the planet than the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King.
Not only is the sentence blatantly untrue, but to compare Dr. King to the habitual drug user who pointed a gun at a pregnant black woman’s stomach is disgraceful.
Additionally, while MLK unified the country, the death of Floyd has torn the nation apart.
Nonetheless, Joe Biden declared, “Even Dr. King’s assassination did not have the worldwide impact that George Floyd’s death did,” Biden said.

Biden’s comment is only the latest in a long line of bonehead soundbites to come from the former vice president.
