Imagine being a White House press aide in the Biden administration. You have no idea what the boss will be saying next. Will he reminisce about Corn Pop? Perhaps he will invite a Teletubby to a summit conference? But even Joe Biden, a man who lost grip of his senses some time ago, will not long for the restoration of cordial social meals with men who would treat black Americans like interiors? No way. Right? I mean, impossible. Right? Wrong.
FNC: “President Biden raised eyebrows during his trip to Ohio when he reminisced about his time in the Senate when he broke bread with ‘real segregationists.’
Biden visited the United Performance Metals facility in Hamilton and was accompanied by both Ohio senators, Democrat Sherrod Brown and outgoing Republican Rob Portman.”

“You know, things have kind of changed since I first got there… I got elected there when I was 29 years old to the United States Senate from a very modest background. And I was there for 36 years before becoming vice president,” Biden said Friday. “We always used to fight like hell even back in the old days when we had real segregationists like Eastland and Thurmond, all those guys, but we ended up eating lunch together. Things have changed. We got to bring it back.”
Wow. It’s becoming surreal, like he’s an RNC deep cover mole. Of course, conservatives pounced. “Segregationists were famously chill about who got to eat lunch together,” National Review senior writer Dan McLaughlin quipped.
“Nothing like a hot lunch with a segregationist… ” political pundit Dave Rubin tweeted. “[O]f course you ate lunch together. [Y]ou were allowed to sit at their counter,” National Journalism Center program director Becket Adams clarified.
“Brunch with Bigots, am I right?!” The Lafayette Co. president Ellen Carmichael exclaimed. “For one, Biden admitting just casually sharing meals with ‘real segregationists’; second, ‘real segregationists’ seems to be an implied admission that when he says stuff today like ‘Jim Crow 2.0’, he knows it’s not real,” Pluribus editor Jeryl Bier wrote.
“Joe Biden be like ‘ultra MAGA is so extreme and I just long for the days of when I could eat lunch with segregationists,'” Abigail Marone, press secretary for Sen. Josh Hawley, R-Mo., remarked.
White House aides are so afraid that Biden will say something wacky, like wanting to break bread with Kluxers, that they’ve restricted him to a fake White House backdrop instead of the real thing.
“Biden aides prefer the fake White House stage built in the Old Executive Office Building next door for events, sacrificing some of the power of the historic backdrop in favor of an otherwise sterile room that was outfitted with an easily read teleprompter screen,” a press report noted. Ouch.
