You're right--in that case I also should have asked for the full video. I feel that I'm much more inclined to find the entire piece if it's an interview, rather than a recorded clip of an action. It also might be because, as seen in my response (quoted below), I didn't think him carrying boxes mattered--rather it was him not wearing a mask, and the example that puts out to the public. But, that might just be my biases explaining my actions. I'll try to be more aware of those two scenarios moving forward.Watching the interview, Biden clearly thinks hes been a champion for the Black community. I think the Dems over the years have taken the balck vote for granted and out of that is where Biden feels entitled to it as well. I think he definitely needs to be asked about this comment in his next interview.
Speaking of short clips you sure didn't have a problem with a short, clearly edited clip of Mike Pence carrying empty boxes of PPE when in fact the full clip showed him clearly joking and laughing.
I'm definitely not a Biden fan, but going off that interview alone, I never got a vibe that he thinks he's entitled to the black vote. In fact, one of the primary points of the interview was the host accusing him (and Democrats in general) of that and he pushes back pretty hard.Sure it's funny, but does it really matter? It's not like the entire trip was empty--there was stuff in the first set of boxes. Him going back for a second set of empties for a photo shoot doesn't really make a difference, unless you for some reason thought Pence was the kind of person who wouldn't do this.
I'm more concerned with him not wearing a mask, and the example that sets.
