    NO...He NEVER Said That...
    Biden NEVER used those Exact Words..

    Why mischaracterize things?:bored:

    Are RW "Hey Lookie! Joe Bad!" Talking Points really wearing that thin?:smh:

    Thus, you have 2 options:

    1) Post the Exact Quote (and source) where Biden said (Exactly):

    "The China Travel Ban is Racist"...


    And, NOT some RW BS Spin "He didn't actually say that, but he said something else and that is what he meant" crap.

    The EXACT Quote...

    Or

    2) Just admit that it was mischaracterized BS and you were posting hyper-partisan crap...
    ^Which is the Default Option if you can't post the Exact Quote...


    Option 1) or 2)...
    Which is it?

    I'll wait...

    Oh dear Lord AJ - when someone says 'Trump is making it harder for "black and brown people" to come to the US?" what do you THINK he is saying?

    If someone is against black and brown people, that's the very definition of racism. I mean Geez Louise, that's just being willfully obtuse. But I can't wait to see you spin it otherwise.

    200 countries on earth and the only places he bans are full of black people.

    We can see right through that spin AJ.

    Joe Biden is a racist by his OWN standards.

    We can see you Joe!

    I mean, Jesus. Maybe I'm more sensitive to this because I'm a racial mutt, but how you can say calling someone who is against POC ISN'T calling them racist - it just boggles the mind.

    The sheer amount of mental twisting you have to do to defend Biden - it's like we have people on the left who are Human Pretzels.

    Maybe I should have a mod ruling here - can I tell posters they're against black and brown people and I can't get busted for calling them racist?

    My biggest wish would be that Biden would succeed in convincing the Trumpists to get vaccinated.

    But it seems these people only realize they were wrong when they were near death on a respirator.

    The quarantine, we don't know anything about this new variant of the virus. I wouldn't give it the slightest opening since apparently it's vacc resistant.

    Yeah - she was commenting on the expansion of trump’s Muslim immigration restrictions. Not on the restrictions related to Covid.

    You.

    So one person, who you assume to be (or vote) Democrat said the Covid travel restrictions were racist, and that’s enough to say “Democrats said it was racist”.
    By that reasoning, Republicans support Nazis.

    They called his restrictions from primarily Muslim countries racist. Those restrictions had nothing to do with Covid.

    They did NOT call the restrictions related to Covid racist. I supported those restrictions but I think they did not go far enough, just like these ones don’t go far enough.

    what's political is the double standard reaction to the ban when Trump had the same policy he was called xenophobic and racist

    This was Biden on what he called the "African Ban" last year. Now he's imposed one himself.

    Trump further diminished the U.S. in the eyes of the world by expanding his travel ban. This new “African Ban,” is designed to make it harder for black and brown people to immigrate to the United States. It’s a disgrace, and we cannot let him succeed. https://medium.com/@JoeBiden/statem...onald-trumps-expanded-travel-ban-17ac0ee039b9

    Neither does this ban since Africa and the WHO both say hold on a minute, nothing to be concerned about, so it must be racism right?

    This is the problem with you guys, again and again.
    You take something that is true, then you exaggerate it and expand it and twist it until you end up with an outright lie.

    Here is what Biden said. As quoted on your link.
    "We are in the midst of a crisis with the coronavirus," Biden tweeted early last year while still a candidate. "We need to lead the way with science — not Donald Trump’s record of hysteria, xenophobia, and fear-mongering. He is the worst possible person to lead our country through a global health emergency."

    No mention of travel restrictions.

    And then he said this
    “A wall will not stop the coronavirus.
    Banning all travel from Europe
    any other part of the world - will
    not stop it.
    This disease could impact every
    nation and any person on the planet
    and we need a plan to combat it.”
    All completely true! Travel restrictions may help slow the spread, but they won’t stop the virus.

    You guys have taken these two things, falsely pith them together and you come up with, “ Biden called trump’s Covid travel restrictions racist.” That is a flat out lie.

    But let’s get down to it. Do you support Biden’s travel restrictions???

    Didn't Joe Biden complain that deaths under Trump for Covid-19 were unacceptable? Didn't he promise to win the war on Covid-19? Hey 81,000,000 voters. Your choice is a loser! Wholly inept, both him and his administration!

    Does it have to be just about restricting countries due to covid concerns? Or is you don't want to talk about Democratic leadership calling Trump a bigot?

    Fully agree... the 72 hour delay is mystifying to most...

    I just read Israel is banning ALL travel to their country....

    SNIP
    In addition to the entry ban for non-Israelis, a three-day mandatory quarantine would be required for all vaccinated Israeli nationals, and a seven-day quarantine for those who have not been vaccinated.
    ENDSNIP

    https://www.bbc.com/news/world-middle-east-59448547

    Now THOSE are common sense travel restrictions..

    Here we go again...
