The Joe Biden 2020 campaign has hired Symone Sanders, who formerly worked on the 2016 Bernie Sanders campaign and is a frequent guest on CNN. She’s a radical leftist who once called Trump a racist on the air.
It’s odd that she’s now working for Biden since she doesn’t seem very fond of white men.
The Washington Examiner reports:
Biden senior adviser: We don’t need white men leading the Democratic Party
Symone Sanders, who has just joined Joe Biden’s presidential campaign as a senior adviser, must have reconsidered her earlier position on Democratic Party leadership.
In November 2016, shortly after President Trump’s victory, Sanders told CNN’s Brianna Keilar that “we don’t need white people leading the Democratic Party right now.”
“The Democratic Party is diverse, and it should be reflected as so in our leadership and throughout the staff at the highest levels from the vice chairs to the secretaries all the way down to the people working in the offices at the DNC,” she added.
The comments were puzzling at the time, considering Sanders, an African American, had earlier served as press secretary for Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign.
Check out her tweet below and some of the responses.
.@JoeBiden & @DrBiden are a class act. Over the course of this campaign, Vice President Biden is going to make his case to the American ppl. He won’t always be perfect, but I believe he will get it right. PS – all stock photos aren’t created equal 😆. https://t.co/JXvgEGHaRI

Nothing says confidence like joining a campaign with the statement, "He won't always be perfect." https://t.co/bPN0uMpqDF
