This continued footage on NBC of Joe Biden shaking hands, while a (presumed) aide stands between him and @GarrettHaake with a microphone trying to talk to him is something...— Tal Kopan (@TalKopan) June 28, 2019
Finally, Haake was able to ask a question on whether Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) misrepresented Biden’s position on segregation.
“Yes, she did,” Biden replied. “Yes, she did.”
“She mischaracterized it how?” Haake asked.
“I don’t think she intended to, she mischaracterized it because I supported busing to eliminate de jure segregation,” Biden claimed, as he tried to ignore the reporter.
ADDING: ABC already has video of Joe denouncing forced busing, back when a lot of white people were tired of it. He's making the argument he tried to defend last night: that busing is good for schools where there is an "intent" to segregate. That's not an argument he wants to be defending today.
