It looks like CBS News political correspondent Ed O’Keefe was out on the campaign trail with Joe Biden while the freshman four were having their press conference at which they refused to answer some pretty simple questions, like, “Are you pro-al Qaeda?”

Fortunately for him, O’Keefe didn’t have to sit through that, but he did ask Joe Biden what he’d say to someone — anyone — who agreed with President Trump’s “racist” tweets calling for AOC and her squad to go back to where they came from if they hate America so much.
Biden, who was pounded by Kamala Harris in the first debate for his work with segregationists back in the day, said he’d tell any voter who agreed with Trump, “I’m ashamed of you.”
If you ask us, “Back in Chains” Biden is probably the candidate with the least room to talk when it comes to racism, but hey, it’s his campaign.
WATCH: In Des Moines, I asked @joebiden what he would say to Americans who agree with President Trump’s tweet about freshman Democratic lawmakers. “I’d say I’m ashamed of you,” Biden said. I asked: You’d say that to a voter? Biden: “I’d say that to anybody who’s that racist.” pic.twitter.com/VSwgQ5JgYh

Not a great strategy calling voters racist.

So he would say it to himself?

The correct response probably should've been "its a free country, your free to agree with his comments, I personally disagree with him." #responsetocomments

Apparently Joe wore blinders during the eight years he was VP.

Ok, who had “Biden says racist in the first 30 seconds”?

How stupid is this? You mean to tell me a person who could be our President condones what these women say, on a daily basis, about our country. Wow. Scary.

Go home Joe…you’re just another racist deflecting your racism to/on someone else – constantly. May be your only original good idea.

Woke Joe has no chance. His party leaders "the squad" won't let it happen.

That is a racist attitude, Biden. People of color may say or do anything without being called out on it because of their skin color? And a white person who disagrees with or calls out a person of color is automatically a racist because of color? U r racist.

Anyone gonna ask Biden if he’ll denounce that terror attack on an ICE facility this weekend?
