Former Vice President Joe Biden just got some insanely bad news.
Biden's campaign hit a huge batch of turbulence.
And now his Presidential bid is going down in flames after this shocking betrayal.
Joe Biden's praise for segregationist Democrat Senators at a fundraiser in New York City turned the 2020 Democrat Presidential primary on its head.
Before this slip-up, the pundits all presumed Biden was on a glide path to the nomination.
But after Biden offered warm words for segregationist Democrats, James Eastland and Hermy Talmadge Biden's opponents sensed an opening.
Biden's lead in the polls is built in part on his strength with black voters.
Both Kamala Harris and Corey Booker took dead aim at Biden to try and pry those voters away from the former Vice President.
"You don't joke about calling black men' boys.' Men like James O. Eastland used words like that, and the racist policies that accompanied them, to perpetuate white supremacy and strip black Americans of our very humanity," Booker declared.
Harris attacked Biden saying she respected him, "But to coddle the reputations of segregationists, of people who, if they had their way, I would literally not be standing here as a member of the United States Senate is … misinformed and it's wrong."
However, no attack on Biden resonated deeper than Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's slam on Biden for being out of touch.
"If you ignore racism and if you don't address issues of race with racists, then everything is fine, right? ... That's how you work with segregationists: By not confronting the racism and their institutionalization of second-class citizenship and a lack of fully recognizing African Americans."
No Democrat outside of Barack Obama has a bigger megaphone or a more devoted following than Ocasio-Cortez.
She already blasted Biden for not backing a Soviet-style Green New Deal.
And Ocasio-Cortez has made overtures to the surging Elizabeth Warren in recent weeks.
If Ocasio-Cortez decides Biden is not socialist or "woke" enough to be the nominee and endorses Warren she could send Biden's campaign into a freefall.
