“I cringed, no question about that,” he said. “Joe did not do as well as I hoped in responding, but I will say this: I go about my business every day comparing Joe Biden, to the alternative, not the Almighty. He is not a perfect person. None of us are. So what my decision now is to determine who I feel should be the next president of the United States, and I do that by comparing the candidates to each other, not to the Almighty.
“We sometimes say things we do not really mean, they come out a little bit wrong, and that’s what happened here,” he continued, giving Biden a benefit of the doubt that Democrats never grant Trump. “I think all of us know Joe Biden… He knows the African American community very well. I’ve done a lot of stuff for Joe Biden over the years, and I would not have supported him if I did not think that he was best suited to be the next president of the United States. It’s just that simple.”
That’s a very tepid defense of Biden’s comment, which revealed just how Democrats feel about black Americans who stray from the plantation.
