Yes, what is going on is that the other candidates are nick-picking, and blowing up something extremely trivial in an effort to cause his popularity to drop. His so-called controversial comment was about having to politically work with racists that were elected congressmen because he had have no other option at that time in history; that was his point of his comment. The other candidates are attempting to make him look flawed so that he becomes less popular. They know Biden is not racist, ALL of them have publicly stated he has been a good leader in the civil rights movement, but he lacks the sensitively that comes from being minority who has lived with racism on a regular basis. In other words, they are suggesting he is an older white man who fully believes that racism is bad for the country, but he does not fully under the pain of racism because he never experienced it... that is their criticism.
Given that Biden has been in public service since the 1970, there is an endless supply to official records that can used against Biden by Trump. Biden is simply guilty for doing the best he could at any given time throughout his career. In politics, people are never forgiven for making a poor decision based on hindsight. Bidden could have 95% great record, and Trump will turn the tables making that imperfect 5% appear to be as if Biden spent his entire political career screwing up. If Biden made common error of calling a adult women a "girl", Trump could make it seem that Biden has an sexual obsession with underage girls... It really doesn't matter how trivial an error, Trump will taken it an turn it into a huge story that 99.999% false. Trump just needs a microscopic grain of something, and he will turn it into the biggest pile of scrap anybody has ever seen. Example:
Press to Trump: "Biden said he loves going to baseball games and having a good, American made, hot dog."
Trump: "The truth is Biden is gay, and what he is saying is a coded message to the gay men that he wants to meet them in the men's rest room at the next baseball game so he can give them blow jobs. He is not talking about hot dogs, he is talking about hot you-know-what. That is what he is really saying, he is sending coded messages to gays all the time because he is secretly gay. Look at his tweets and public statements, they're all coded messages. There all about sex, he is obsessed with gay sex. Read them yourself, their all sick coded messages about gay sex!"
It does not matter what the topic, Trump can turn anything into garbage instantly without even thinking about it.
Sorry... I digress.
