What a total reframing of what actually happened to try to damage @KamalaHarris.
#Biden raised the issue of segregation.
#Booker---WHO IS BLACK---asked for an apology.
Biden doubled down and claimed Booker should apologize to him.
This went on over a week before the debate as #Biden's history was revealed by journalists like me.
In the debates Biden lost badly to #Harris when he couldn't address his own record.
Biden's numbers plummeted, Harris's rose.
Then Biden went on CNN to attack Harris.
Chris Cuomo gave #Biden TWO WHOLE SHOWS to attack #Harris with no pushback. Biden claimed he was "blindsided" by Harris, who commented on the issue Biden raised 10days earlier.
Biden revealed all his terrible policy ideas he never talks about & also attacked progressive WOC.
In the 2nd hour Cuomo gave to #Biden, several days after the 1st, Jill Biden claimed #Harris tried to set her husband up, saying "the American people aren't buying it." Mrs. Biden all but called Harris a liar.
Then Biden's team called Harris "slippery and slick."
For white people unfamiliar with this specific demonizing of WOC, this is a special off-shoot of misogyny called misogyniore. Targeting WOC who dare to call out white supremacy.

@ChrisCuomo has not offered Harris & her husband two hours of time to refute the Bidens' charges.
Then last weekend, #Biden snubbed #EssenceFest, where #Harris was an undisputed star.
#Biden instead went to SC where he is (inexpllicably) ahead of Harris in the polls and offered a tepid apology for what he said THREE WEEKS earlier about segregationists.
#Biden did not apologize to #Booker or #Harris for attacking them--the only black people in the race. He never mentioned what he said to #Booker or about #Harris.
Biden played victim and the MSM, which always supports white men over women and POC, propelled that narrative.
So no, @KamalaHarris did not "double down." That was @JoeBiden, who could neither explain nor defend his own record in a debate.
Biden claims he is the only candidate with the experience and mettle to take on Trump.
The debate proved otherwise.
#Biden couldn't face a challenge to his own record from his own party in a debate he should have aced. Instead he called a friend in the political TV biz to give him a do-over on prime time TV. Then he asked for a second hour and had his wife attack Harris.
This is what #HillaryClinton experienced in 2016: different rules for the men.
Making @KamalaHarris the villain of a narrative @JoeBiden created is repugnant and should be rejected by everyone, regardless of who your candidate is. We did this before. It got us Trump.
