    Former Vice President Joe Biden (D) referred to President Trump as the first "racist" president during a town hall event on Wednesday.

    Biden was questioned during the event, which was organized by the Service Employees International Union, about Trump's tendency to refer to COVID-19 as the "China virus" or "Wuhan virus."

    "What President Trump has done in his spreading of racism ... the way he deals with people based on the color of their skin, their national origin, where they’re from, is absolutely sickening," Biden said.

    "No sitting president has ever done this," Biden said. "Never, never, never. No Republican president has done this. No Democratic president. We've had racists, and they’ve existed. They’ve tried to get elected president. He’s the first one that has."

    A request for further comment from the Biden campaign was not immediately returned. White House officials have repeatedly denied that Trump's various nicknames for the virus, including "kung flu," are meant to spread racial animus and have insisted instead that the president is merely trying to point to China's failures to contain the virus within its borders.

    Biden went on during the town hall to accuse the president of attempting to "divide" the U.S. among racial lines.

    "The way he pits people against one another is all designed to divide the country, divide people, not pull them together," Biden said. "Look what he’s doing now. He’s blaming everything on China. He's blaming everything on the Chinese. And people don't make a distinction, as you well know, [between] a South Korean and someone from Beijing. They make no distinction. It's Asia. And he's using it as a wedge."

    The former vice president has continuously attacked the president's coronavirus response, which he has called ineffective at stopping the virus from spreading, while accusing Trump of "nakedly xenophobic" distractions from his administration's alleged failures.

    “The pandemic has unleashed familiar forces of hate, fear and xenophobia that he always flames ... that have always existed in this society,” Biden told the Asian American and Pacific Islanders Victory Fund in May. “But this president brought it with him, has brought with it a new rash of racial messages, verbal and physical attacks, and other acts of hate, some subtle, some overt, against the Asian American and Pacific Islanders.”

    I guess that will make doddering old Joe the second racist in our country's history....
    according to every 7-11 store owner, and all the black people who have never been "clean."

    Yet another Demonrat soup sandwich. Lots of words and phrases without substance. It irks me when accusations are made but do not provide specifics.

    Dementia Joe just called himself and his audience all racists. Good god, what an idiot he is. Isn't that the same thing as saying all black people look alike? I think so.

    Trump is a racist president, but certainly not the first.

    The mentally deranged Trump haters love to shout accusations at the tops of their lungs, but other than projecting their own disturbing emotions, they never say much.

    Biden is one stupid SOB. I guess he forgot about Andrew Johnson, FDR, and LBJ. I find it funny that in all of the years of public life Trump has had he was not a racist until he became POTUS. Go figure.

    This dude has always been an embarrassment. An ineffective embarrassment. And a waste of taxpayer's money.

    This guy has so many feet in his mouth. His own were planted in there a very long time ago. It's hard to believe there is any room left in there. If he wasn't such a sad person, he would be comical.

    I remember when DT posited the question.....what exactly has this guy done? He has been in politics for decades upon decades, and what has done? Other than just make an embarrassment out of himself at every turn. Not just silly comments, but outright insulting comments....to even his constituents.

    As to his latest nonsensical statement, some of you have already pointed out the obvious examples of those who have come before DT who actually were racist. Even with his diminishing faculties, JB should still have enough long term memory to remember those guys. Which just means he's being disingenuous, if not a complete liar.

    What is most disconcerting though is as a Democrat, and a white Democrat no less, he has continued to stand by philosophies that actually keep the black man down. Talk about audacity to call out DT.

    Anyone with a functioning, rational brain knows that the real racists are on the left. It was the democratic party that supported slavery, the KKK, Jim Crow, and all of these policies that tell black people there are too stupid to succeed in America without their help.

    Agreed. The democratic party has the racist history. So why, pray tell, is Donald Trump fighting so hard to defend the banner of slavery, the banner of those who were traitors our Union led by Lincoln? (No one knew this until Trump, but didja know Lincoln was a Republican? ~snicker~) Why is he placing more importance on protecting the names of traitors on American bases than he is on funding our military? And why is the KKK proudly endorsing Trump? Things that make you go, "Hmmmmmm...."
