this conflicts with the human body
July 17, 2019

Human anatomy means nothing when it's time to form a snappy comeback.

On Tuesday, the House voted to condemn President trump for his racist attacks against four Democratic congresswomen, while Trump tweeted to defend himself by saying "I don't have a racist bone in my body." 2020 contender and former Vice President Joe Biden got a crack at all those developments on Wednesday, and when confronted with Trump's claim of a racism-free skeleton, Biden responded by saying "that means he has no bones."

Biden has repeatedly called Trump "racist" over the course of his presidency, and the recent controversy over Trump telling congressmembers to "go back" to the countries they came from has been no exception. Yet in response to Republicans in the House refusing to do so during Tuesday's condemnation vote, Biden told ABC News "they know better." He did stop short of calling the GOP House members racist themselves. Kathryn Krawczyk
