Biden Team Pushes Back On Criticism Of Out-Of-Context Obama Assassination Gaffe

By Nicole Lafond
August 24, 2019 4:41 pm

The gaffe-prone former vice president was roundly criticized on Twitter for a strange remark in which he questioned what might have happened if former President Barack Obama had been assassinated.

Former Vice President and 2020 front runner Joe Biden was at an event in New Hampshire, talking about the new generation of young people who have been energized to political activism over President Trump’s election. Biden compared the resistance movement to similar activism he’d seen after the assassinations of Martin Luther King Jr. and Bobby Kennedy.

“I only had two political heroes, one hero was my dad, my two political heroes were Martin Luther King and Bobby Kennedy,” Biden said during an event in New Hampshire on Friday “My senior semester, they were both shot and killed. … Imagine what would have happened if, God forbid, if Barack Obama had been assassinated after becoming the de facto nominee, What would have happened in America? Things changed.”

Biden was dragged on Twitter for the strange remark, but his campaign team pushed back, saying it was just a gaffe-y way of pointing out the trauma of those past assassinations.

Matt – He was putting into perspective, for the young folks in the room, about how traumatic the assassinations of RFK and MLK were for the country. This tweet is chasing clicks. https://t.co/K7cY4NeWyM

This is a sleazy headline. He was talking about the turmoil of the late 60s and asking young people to imagine what the MLK and RFK assassinations did to the country. People deserve responsibility from their news outlets. https://t.co/kMHhoQyoAu

I would challenge reporters tweeting about this to ask a single person in that room today what their takeaway from the event was.

I guarantee it wasn’t this. https://t.co/CW1e7J0ZN1

FACT CHECK, a different gaffe:

My senior semester they were both shot and killed."

Biden graduated from the University of Delaware with a bachelor's degree in 1965.

Twitter? Pfffft! Had Trump done that he would have been roundly criticized by all the TV networks, the print media, late-night shows, academia and Hollywood, and the House would have started impeachment hearings.

Yeah, I was going to post a thread but we seldom get many posts on some topics.

Biden was clearly having a senior moment and it all gets explained away or the major news outlets just refuse to report it. If Trump said anything like this, we'd never hear the end of it.

"If we don't report it, it isn't news. The news is what we say it is, no more, no less."

It's a joke. More #FakeNews operations. In truth, just a naked exercise in partisanship by Lefty editors at the major news outlets like Slimes, WaPo, ABCNNBCBS. Same as usual.

There was wide reporting of a gaffe for going off script about an Obama assassination. I have seen zero reporting or any type of mention of the gaffe I detected. I think it is an LF exclusive. It occurred to me that Biden is older than I am, and I was at my second duty station when RFK was assassinated. I think the Obama crap distracted everyone from noticing that the "senior semester" memory was another senior moment.

Hmmm...there was some reporting.
