AWKWARD: Biden Senior Advisor Doesn’t Want White People Leading the Democratic Party

On Thursday, former Vice President Joe Biden announced that he will be running for president.

The Democratic Party as a whole has made it clear that they are tired of old white men so it’s extremely ironic that they are getting behind someone like Biden, an old white male.

Biden has hired former CNN contributor Symone Sanders as a senior advisor to his campaign who, just like the rest of the Democratic Party, has said that she doesn’t want a white people leading her party.

“We don’t need white people leading the Democratic Party right now,” Sanders said on CNN in 2016.

“The Democratic Party is diverse, and it should be reflected as so in our leadership and throughout the staff at the highest levels from the vice chairs to the secretaries all the way down to the people working in the offices at the DNC.” she also noted.

Sanders has a history of talking out against white people. To put it in simpler terms, if she was a white woman talking about black people, she would be seen as a blatant racist.

When discussing the NFL kneeling protests, Sanders said that “white people do not get to tell blacks folks or anybody else what is an acceptable form of protest.”

In an interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper, Sanders said that people like Sarah Sanders need to check their privilege.

“It seems possible, I’m just reading the tea leaves here, that the White House would rather talk about Sarah Sanders being a victim, kicked out of this restaurant, asked to leave this restaurant, than the 2,500 children taken from their parents at the border,” Tapper said to Sanders.

“Absolutely,” Sanders agreed. “They’re using the bully pulpit and I think Sarah Huckabee Sanders thinks she’s Rosa Parks in this situation, and she’s absolutely not. Look, I definitely don’t want anyone coming up to me and putting me out the Shake Shack.”

“But, there is something to be said about the folks calling for civility might need to check their privilege,” she added. “Where is the civility in the press briefing room, Jake? Where is the civility at the border for these children?”

Early Thursday morning, former Vice President Joe Biden formally announced that he is running for President as a Democrat in 2020.

“The core values of this nation… our standing in the world… our very democracy…everything that has made America — America –is at stake. That’s why today I’m announcing my candidacy for President of the United States. #Joe2020″ he said in a tweet with an attached video.

Biden has been hinting that he would be running for President for a while now and he currently is the leading Democrat going into the race.

It didn’t take long for President Trump to weigh in on the announcement.

Welcome to the race Sleepy Joe. I only hope you have the intelligence, long in doubt, to wage a successful primary campaign. It will be nasty – you will be dealing with people who truly have some very sick & demented ideas. But if you make it, I will see you at the Starting Gate!” the President said.
