Media and Democrats flipped out yesterday over President Donald Trump using the term “lynching” in describing the Democratic effort trying to remove him from office.

“Impeachment is not ‘lynching,’ it is part of our Constitution,” Joe Biden ranted. “Our country has a dark, shameful history with lynching, and to even think about making this comparison is abhorrent. It’s despicable.”

Of course, then it was revealed that virtually every Democrat used the term to defend Bill Clinton. Even CNN, incredibly, used the term in describing the questioning of Hillary Clinton on Benghazi.

If ever there was a wrong usage of the term, that would be it.

And of course, despite deploring the term yesterday, Joe Biden also used it to defend Bill Clinton. Whoops.

He apparently forgot all about how despicable and abhorrent he was then.

But now he’s backtracking on his comments then and apologizing for his use of the term.

“This wasn’t the right word to use and I’m sorry about that,” Biden said. “Trump on the other hand chose his words deliberately today in his use of the word lynching and continues to stoke racial divides in this country daily.”

So wait, he didn’t chose his words deliberately when he said it back in 1998?

Twitchy picks up on some of the stunned responses.

And this guy wants to be president? Yikes.
