Biden: Trump ‘fanning the flames of white supremacy’
Trump "has more in common with George Wallace than George Washington," he added.

Joe Biden on Wednesday accused President Donald Trump of "fanning the flames of white supremacy" in his most aggressive attack yet on the character of the man he would like to defeat in 2020.

"Trump offers no moral leadership," Biden declared in Burlington, Iowa. The president "seems to have no interest in unifying the nation."

Biden's remarks, which have been echoed in some form by most of the Democratic presidential candidates, signaled how sharp and bitter the nation's cultural and political divides will be on the long road to Election Day.


They also marked a moment of unity for Biden and his presidential rivals, who have turned on each other in recent weeks. But on Wednesday, they were nearly unanimous in their support of an aggressive plan to confront gun violence just days after another series of mass shootings elevated the issue to the forefront of the party's presidential primary.

.....Biden promised to ban assault weapons and high-capacity magazines, reminding voters that he helped enact the now-expired law in the 1990s that originally outlawed such weapons. He also signaled support for a federal program to buy back assault weapons from gun owners.

Turning to the president, Biden said, there was "no evidence that that the presidency has awakened his conscience in the least." Trump "has more in common with George Wallace than George Washington," he added.

Trump derided Biden's remarks on Twitter as "sooo boring!"

Gilda Cobb-Hunter, a South Carolina state legislator, who has been critical of Biden at times, said it's beyond time for elected leaders to embrace gun control, even if it turns off some rural voters.

"I want to see Democrats take a stand on this issue," she said. "Enough with the words. It's time for action."

Biden took Trump out to the woodshed and tanned his backside today.

At one point he said Trump was "low energy" when he tried to speak about the weekends shootings.

He did? I got the impression that he looked like every other dumbass who is blaming a shooting on a President because Hillarious Hillary lost.

Sleepy Joe can't even come up with anything original.

The only time Sleepy Joe is on his game is when there are women and children around to grope.

Joe Biden is Presidential

There's nothing presidential about taking tragedies like this and making them political. The actual president is expressing sympathy for victims and urging Americans to come together and fight the bigotry that feeds these events.

Professional politicians like Biden are doing everything they can to score political points by trying to blame the acts of a madman on a political opponent. That's sick and it couldn't be less presidential.

Trump doesn't own slaves, but the visa workers he imports work for slave wages.

Democrats are frothing at the mouth in their race to blame Trump for these murders. All Trump has done is condemn bigotry and racism and express sympathy for the victims and their loved ones. Democrats want to score political points by scapegoating the president. It's disgusting. Even more disgusting is the fact they will accuse him of divisive rhetoric. They need to look in the mirror.
