Joe Biden, the Democrats’ presumptive presidential nominee, has finally decided he can come out of his basement. The former vice president, who had not left Delaware since mid-March, went to a black church this week to meet with community leaders.
Taking a page out of Hillary Clinton’s famous “listening tour” when she carpetbagged her way into a U.S. Senate seat in New York, Biden is emphasizing that he is “listening.”
He even took a knee with a young black American to show his solidarity with protesters, then tweeted out the picture of him kneeling and said, “I will listen, just as I did today.”
Biden was a U.S. senator from Delaware from 1973 to 2009, then served as vice president for eight years alongside the first African-American president. Are we to believe he has never met with these Delaware community leaders before?
