House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Thursday said she had "no criticism" of former Vice President Joe Biden invoking his past working relationships with two segregationist senators as an example of "civility."
What I think is most important for all the candidates is authenticity, they are who they are, theyve lived a life and they have grown from their experiences, and I think thats what hes trying to tell us," Pelosi told MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell.
I have no criticism of what he believes is his story to tell the American people, that he will work with anyone to get a good result for the American people.
Biden has faced mounting criticism over the last two days after invoking former Sens. James Eastland (D-Miss.) and Herman Talmadge (D-Ga.) during a speech at a fundraiser Tuesday night.
The former vice president and Delaware senator cited his ability to work with the segregationists as an example of "civility" that no longer exists in Congress, pointing out that Eastland never called him boy.
She forgot to add that she also supports blackface for Dem candidates, just as long as they back her on infanticide.
What about the history of these Segregationist Democrats in the party of Jim Crow laws?
To liberals, the truth is whatever they say the truth is.
These people are the worst among us.
O Right! Except when its Strom Thurmond then people had to be destroyed.

Democrats stick together.
Republicans can’t agree on where to go for lunch.
“what he believes is his story”
As with most things, there’s what someone believes is what happened and then there’s what really happened.
Thanks yesthatjallen. Double standard is the same thing as no standard at all.
Speaking of which - - wasn't Gov. Ralph Northam (Democrat) the guy in the KKK outfit - not the one in blackface in the yearbook?
Not that it matters - the press is so stupid they think Republicans were the party of the KKK... and probably that Northam was a Republican. As stupid as these people are - it's a wonder they can find their way to the MSNBC studio every day.
