Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Dailycaller.com: “Joe Biden Uses ‘Lynching’ Apology To Remind People That Trump Is ‘Stoking Racial Divides’”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Former Vice President Joe Biden apologized Tuesday evening for using the word “lynching” over 20 years earlier.

Following President Donald Trump’s tweet comparing his possible impeachment to a lynching, videos quickly surfaced of Democrats — including Biden — who had used the same terminology to describe the impeachment of former President Bill Clinton in 1998.

“This wasn’t the right word to use and I’m sorry about that,” Biden tweeted, pivoting quickly from his apology to an attack on the president. “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.”

President Trump’s tweet almost exactly mirrored Biden’s 1998 comments calling the Clinton impeachment a “partisan lynching.” (RELATED: Democrats Compared Clinton’s Impeachment To Lynching, Now Say Trump’s Racist For Doing The Same)
