Someday Joe Biden will probably regret saying something this stupid.... Probably.
Former Vice President Joe Biden likened the cultural effects of President Trump's election to the assassinations of former Sen. Robert F. Kennedy and Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., in a Saturday interview with Al Sharpton.
During a discussion in South Carolina that touched on criminal justice reform, Biden argued that Trump's rise to power had awakened an entire generation to the necessity of getting involved in politics, much like the violent murders of political figures did for baby boomers in the 1960s.
"I think what’s happening now is, I think that Donald Trump may have reawakened sensibilities in this country to say ‘Whoa, maybe we can do this now, just like our generation was awakened when Dr. King and Bobby Kennedy were assassinated,'” Biden claimed. "Our whole generation said I’m back in, man.”
