Former Vice President Joe Biden is well-known for being blunt in his political career. Over the years, he spoke on a wide range of issues without mincing his words, and he is continuing to do so. In the latest news, Biden said he doesn’t believe in fellow Democratic presidential candidate Senator Bernie Sanders if at all he is doing enough to put an end to his ardent supporters’ malicious behavior on social media platforms.
NBC’s Chuck Todd asked Biden if Sanders should take any responsibility as a group of his supporters were accused of bullying members of Nevada’s powerful Culinary Workers Union for not aiding the Vermont senator’s Medicare for All proposal. Former Vice President replied - “ Sanders may not be responsible for it at all, but he has some accountability. If any of my supporters did that, I’d disown them. Flat disown them.” While Biden asked Sanders for accountability, tensions rose to a maximum level as the union, which represents over 60,000 hospitality workers in Nevada, indicated that it would not endorse a candidate ahead of the state’s Democratic caucuses.
Geoconda Argüello-Kline, the group’s secretary-treasurer, said Sander’s supporters’ campaign had viciously attacked the Culinary Union and working families in Nevada over its Medicare for All stance. Hours after the response from Geoconda, the Sanders campaign issued a statement asking the supporters of all the campaigns not to engage in targeting or to make any personal attacks. The statement further says - “Our campaign is a multigenerational movement of love, compassion, and justice. We can absolutely disagree on issues, but we must do it respectfully.” Biden concluded the issue by saying - “Fire them. Find out. See what’s going on.”
