Speaking during his opening monologue on ‘Hannity’ Monday night, Sean weighed-in on Joe Biden’s latest gaffe; saying the former Vice President is going to have to answer “tough questions” about his “changing views.”
“Sleepy, Creepy, Crazy Uncle Joe is flat-out trying to re-write history; claiming Russian interference would never happen under his and Obama’s watch,” said Hannity. “All the election meddling happened under Biden and Obama’s watch. It’s a fact. Devin Nunes was warning them and they didn’t listen.”
“Biden is also evoking Obama to try and boost his chances. It doesn’t look like the Obamas are coming to bail him out anytime soon. The questions are only going to get tougher and he’s going to have to answer for his changing views,” he added.
Biden publicly apologized over the weekend; saying he was “sorry” after he praised his willingness to work with segregationist lawmakers during his time in the United States Senate.
“Former Vice President Joe Biden on Saturday apologized for recent comments about working with segregationist senators in his early days in the U.S. Senate, saying he understands now his remarks could have been offensive to some,” reports the Associated Press.
“Was I wrong a few weeks ago?” Biden asked a crowd of supporters in South Carolina. “Yes, I was. I regret it, and I’m sorry for any of the pain of misconception that caused anybody.”
“I’m flawed and imperfect like everyone else. I’ve made the best decisions that I could at the moment they had to be made,” Biden said. “If the choice is between doing nothing and acting, I’ve chosen to act.”
“I’m going to let my record stand for itself and not be distorted or smeared,” he added.
Biden’s political stance on race relations were thrust into the national spotlight after last month’s Democratic debates.

“Sen. Kamala Harris of California has catapulted into a virtual tie with former Vice President Joe Biden in the race for the Democratic presidential nomination — and she’s made significant inroads with black voters — following her widely praised debate performance last week, a new national poll released Tuesday showed,” reports NBC News.
“The latest Quinnipiac University poll of Democratic and Democratic-leaning voters showed Biden with 22 percent support and Harris with 20 percent — a double-digit jump for her since the university’s previous poll last month,” adds the survey.
