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.
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.

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.
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.

I mean I think he is far from entitled to the African-American vote, which is why over the last month he has released policy proposals that address chief concerns of the African-American community such as healthcare as one of the top priorities as we've seen through the Coronavirus outbreak which has disproportionately effected that community compared to most other groups. While you have the current administration wanting to get rid of ACA with no concrete plan to replace it with anything, just get rid of people's healthcare and punting down the road that things will figure themselves out.

Biden's statement was dumb and he is and will face some backlash for a bit I'm sure, but I have a hard time seeing this one statement right now having a long term effect of depressing turnout over his overarching policy goals in the long run as we get closer to November.

Yup. Dumb comment. Still voting for him as long as Trump is the other party's nominee.

You go on these sad little victory laps any time Biden says something questionable while your guy says 100 completely idiotic things a day. Shows how nervous you are about November . . .
Trump's bad things don't mean Biden's bad things aren't bad.

If you want to compare the two of them, then that's a fair time to bring up the other. But if we're discussing specific actions, this whataboutism doesn't help move the conversation.

Never said they weren't. Was a dumb thing to say on Biden's part. Was simply pointing out that Joe slipping up from time to time pales in comparison to what we're currently dealing with . . .

Wait isn't he supposed to double down and lash out at the haters, I thought that's what a "strong" person does. :conf (5):
"Look, it's fake news. You are so fake it really is quite bad. Tremendously bad. My comments were perfect, you know like the call with Ukraine. It was perfect! I've had so many people come up to me. A lot of people come up to me. They say "sir, that call with the President of Ukraine was unbelievably perfect. It's like the most perfect thing I've ever heard" but the Do Nothing Democrats want to make it out to be a big thing. I call it the Russian Hoax. It's a Hoax. I won in a landslide. No one has ever seen how big I won an election before. No one has ever seen it! Hilary Clinton was supposed to win according to the fake polls but that's what they were fake. Made up. By you, the media. The enemy of the people. But you know I have a lot of supporters out there. Some great supporters. Tremendous supporters. And they see Trump as the one who can do it. They looked at Hilary and said no way. Let me tell you, it wasn't even a contest. I beat her and I bet her badly, ok? I'll do the same with Sleepy Joe Biden, Nervous Nancy Pelosi, she's a sick woman let me tell you. I'm not even worried about Biden. He's a cake walk, believe me. Ok? Anything else? Ok thank you. Thank you. Thank you everybody."

Not nervous at all. A lot of you guys post shit everyday about Trump and other republicans but no one accuses them of taking victory laps. Is this just a board for Democrats and Liberals? I’m getting sick and tired of this bullshit. You can’t post anything that paints Democrats in a bad way without getting attacked and accused of just eating everything up that Trump says. That’s why very few republicans post in here.

Please explain to me how what Biden said today is questionable. Also, please list the idiotic things Trump has said today or even the past week.

Don't play the victim, hit them back!

People aren't just going to accept a Tweet as "Well, he won!"

Also, try to make a point not using Trump as a basis.
