A new political 2020 campaign advertisement pinned by President Donald Trump on his Twitter Tuesday unleashes a torrent of past racist statements made by presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden. It was released shortly after Biden selected California Senator Kamala Harris to be his running mate.
Biden, who is known for his gaffes, has been highly criticized by some for his seemingly racist statements but has had little backlash from Democratic leadership or the mainstream media on the issue.
August 5, 2020: “What you all know, but most people don’t know. Unlike the African American community, with notable exceptions, the Latino community is incredibly diverse community with incredibly different attitudes about different things,” Biden said.
May 22, 2020: “If you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black.”
August 8, 2019: “Poor kids are just as talented and just as bright as white kids.”
May 18, 1973: “My Democratic colleagues don’t like me saying this but the two party system is good for the south and good for the negro, good for the Black.”
Listen and watch the full video below and judge for yourself. Would President Trump get a pass if these were statements he had made?

Historic House Vote Expels Rep. George Santos Amidst Scandal
In a turn of events, the House of Representatives made history on Friday with a vote to expel Rep. George Santos (R-N.Y.), marking the first such expulsion in over two decades. A moment fraught with gravity unfolded as Speaker Mike Johnson wielded his gavel to formalize Santos’ removal, setting a precedent in congressional annals.
Santos, indicted on 23 counts related to wire fraud, identity theft, and other charges, has not faced conviction but stands accused of misusing campaign funds for opulent purchases. The bipartisan vote, tallying 311 to 114, signaled robust support for expulsion, with a marginally higher number of Republicans opting to retain Santos.
Questions loomed as Speaker Johnson left the chamber, his silence leaving the fate of the ongoing government spending battle uncertain. According to reports from Fox News, Democratic Rep. Steny Hoyer emphasized the non-partisan nature of the decision, asserting that members concluded Santos had tarnished the House’s reputation and was unfit for representation.
Within the GOP, conflicting opinions emerged, with Rep. Darrell Issa arguing against expulsion, citing the presumption of innocence. The tight-lipped stance of the House Ethics Committee played a pivotal role in the deliberations.
Conversely, members of the New York Republican delegation, led by Rep. Marc Molinaro, asserted Santos’ commission of crimes, justifying expulsion based on a comprehensive investigation.
Santos himself predicted the outcome in an exclusive morning interview on “FOX & Friends.” This vote not only underlines the House’s rare use of expulsion powers but also sets a critical precedent in handling members facing severe legal challenges.
