Constitutional law scholar Jonathan Turley declared President Biden has been lying and his influence-peddling may amount to "one of the greatest corruption scandals in the history of Washington."

During an interview with Reverend Al Sharpton on Saturday, former Vice President Joe Biden compared President Trump’s presidency to the assassinations of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Senator Robert F. Kennedy.

Sharpton asked Biden, “The president announced today that he’s going to have a two-week delay on his announcement that he was sending ICE in after hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants. Nancy Pelosi called him last night and asked him not to do it. He’s going to do a two-week delay. What’s your reaction?”

“I think that Donald Trump may have reawakened sensibilities in this country to say, ‘Whoa, maybe we can do this now,’ just like our generation was awakened when Dr. King and Bobby Kennedy were assassinated,” Biden responded. “Our whole generation [said], ‘I’m back in, man.’ These millennials, they get it, Rev. And now they want to get engaged.”

Give me a break, Joe.

Then Biden went even further, “(Trump) shouldn’t do it at all. Did you see they’re in the 9th circuit right now arguing that kids who are being detained by ICE should not even have blankets, toothbrushes, and the rest? They can sleep on floors. They’re actually making that argument today.”

“And not only is that cruel, but imagine what it says to the rest of the world about who we are,” Biden continued. “Look, we should immediately let the Dreamers in, period. We should be moving in the direction of making sure there’s a pathway to citizenship for the 11 million people who are here.”

Biden Wants Trump To Be More Like Obama

Biden went on and on with Sharpton and then said he and President Obama got it right–apparently he thinks President Trump should take notes?

“What we should be doing is what Barack and I started in our administration, where he released 38,000 prisoners from the federal prison system … No one should go to jail for a drug offense. … There’s so much we can do, and it’s within our capacity to do it. That’s the interesting thing,” Biden said ignoring the fact that Trump recently signed the most significant criminal justice reform legislation in U.S. history!

Joe Biden needs to get a clue if he wants to have any chance of winning in 2020.
