WATCH: Kamala Blasts Biden for Bigotry!

Samantha Snellings, Fox News

As the 2020 Democratic Party primary heats up, one candidate took a swipe at former vice president Joe Biden, currently the party’s leading candidate.

“I have, um, a great deal of respect, uh for vice president Biden,” Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) said to a gaggle of reporters. “He’s done very good work and he’s served our country in a very noble way. But to coddle the reputation of segregationists – of people who, if they had their way I would literally not be standing here as a member of the United States Senate – is, uh, it’s misinformed and it’s wrong.”

Earlier Wednesday, Biden praised late Sens. James Eastland (D-MS) and Herman Talmadge (D-GA), known as two of the Senate’s most ardent segregationists, with whom Biden worked early in his political career.

“Let’s be very clear,” Harris continued. “The Senators that [Biden] is speaking of with such adoration are individuals who made and built their reputations on segregation.”
