Biden Defends White Working Class Voters: They’re Good People, Not Racists or Sexists!

bidenVice President Joe Biden sounded off on CNN this morning about Democratic perceptions of white working class voters.

He acknowledged that their concerns were not a “central part of the campaign,” though he did point out Hillary Clinton did have policies that got “drowned out by the most vicious campaign” in recent memory.

Jake Tapper pointed out that Trump’s message to white working class people still resonated. He told the vice president that he surely must have had some frustrations with how Clinton was running her campaign and how she didn’t do enough to reach those voters.

Biden did not dwell on the campaign too much, but he did bring up how Democrats view these people and said, “These are good people, man! These aren’t racists, these aren’t sexists.”
