Trump did this to Hillary in 2016 - attack her from the left on criminal justice reform - to try and depress black turnout. It was entirely predictable he would also do this to Biden, an even easier target. Don’t say we didn’t warn you, Dems.

People in the replies seem to have forgotten stuff like this from Trump in 2016 (but I haven’t):

Bernie Sanders also voted for the 1994 crime bill, so this ad could still have been released with the names switched out.

Nice try, Frank, but it's much more complicated than that with Bernie - and he was wrong to vote for it btw! - whereas it isn't with Biden:

I don’t know what you saw in 2016. (Trump to the left of Hillary on criminal justice reform..? Come on.) But do you really think that most Black voters who voted for Biden in the primaries didn’t already know this all? It’s a little condescending.

It’s literally what happened in 2016. They tried to depress black turnout by going after Clinton over mass incarceration and super predators - and that’s after Clinton, like Biden, overwhelming won the black (Democratic!) vote in the primaries.

How exactly did Trump run to the left of Hillary on criminal justice reform?

Shhhhh, he's being disingenuous because he secretly wants Trump to win so he can say, "I told you so"

Da fuck? Literally all 70+ year old white men have racist skeletons in their closet. Do you honestly think Bernie Sanders wouldn't be hit with this EXACT SAME SHIT?

Find me some racist skeletons for Bernie then. Just one. Considering how fearful the DNC is of him they would've found something by now.
