DUH: Biden Apologizes For Calling Clinton Impeachment A ‘Lynching’ After Ripping Trump For Calling His Impeachment A ‘Lynching’

You can’t make this stuff up, people.

President Trump on Tuesday compared the impeachment inquiry to a “lynching.”

“So some day, if a Democrat becomes President and the Republicans win the House, even by a tiny margin, they can impeach the President, without due process or fairness or any legal rights,” Trump wrote on Twitter. “All Republicans must remember what they are witnessing here – a lynching. But we will WIN!”

 

Joe Biden, the frontrunner for the Democratic presidential nomination, was incensed.

“Impeachment is not ‘lynching,’ it is part of our Constitution,” the former vice president said. “Our country has a dark, shameful history with lynching, and to even think about making this comparison is abhorrent. It’s despicable.”

Then it turned out that Biden said EXACTLY THE SAME THING in 1998, when Bill Clinton was impeached.

“Even if the president should be impeached, history is going to question whether or not this was just a partisan lynching or whether or not it was something that in fact met the standard, the very high bar, that was set by the founders as to what constituted an impeachable offense,” Biden said.


As he’s been doing since he first got into the race, Biden was forced to apologize.

“This wasn’t the right word to use and I’m sorry about that,” Biden wrote on Twitter. “Trump on the other hand chose his words deliberately today in his use of the word lynching and continues to stoke racial divides in this country daily.”

So Trump chose his words “deliberately” and Biden just “accidentally” said the words? How is the same word OK when Biden utters it but racist when Trump says it?

Like we said, you just can’t make this stuff up.
