Former Vice President Joe Biden addressed a televised town hall on ABC News Thursday night where he instructed police officers to “shoot them in the leg” if attacked while on patrol.
“You have to de-escalate. If someone’s coming at you, instead of shoot-to-kill, you shoot them in the leg. You have to do more background checks to make sure the person coming in passes certain psychological tests,” said Biden.

“You have to be in a position where you’re able to identify the things that have to change. So many cops get called into circumstances where somebody is mentally off. That’s why we have to provide psychologists and social workers,” he added.

Biden made similar comments in an interview earlier this week.
“In order to avoid those very high numbers we have to do several things. One: We have to depend on what the President is going to do right now. First of all, he has to, tell, wait for all the cases before anything happens. Look, the whole idea is he has to get in place things we’re shortages of,” said Biden.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo weighed-in on the ongoing Coronavirus crisis Tuesday; saying “disinformation is dangerous” during a global pandemic as the Trump administration works to slow the spread of the disease.
“Every morning I wake up and I read the data set from across the world… We’ve had one of our team members pass away from this, we’ve had 3,000 Americans die. This data set matters. The ability to trust the data is everything,” said Secretary Pompeo.
“This is the reason disinformation is dangerous… I would urge every nation: Do your best to collect the data, do your best to share that information,” he added. “We’re doing that. We’re collecting and sharing.”

BIDEN on RACIAL REMARKS: Radio Host Was ‘Being a Wise Guy!’
Democratic frontrunner Joe Biden deflected criticism from his recent speaking gaffe during an interview with CNN Wednesday; blaming radio host Charlamagne tha God for being a “wise guy” in their fiery exchange.
“All of this could end up hurting the enthusiasm that you need to win among black voters,” asked a reporter with CNN.
“First of all, it was a mistake. I was smiling when he asked me the question. I shouldn’t have been such a wise guy with him. He was being a wise guy and I responded in kind. I shouldn’t have done that,” said Biden.
