President Joe Biden put his pants on today to go outdoors and sign the Emmett Till Antilynching Act into law. The legislation had been pushed hard by Sen. Corey Booker and then-Sen. Kamala Harris. At last, lynching is considered a hate crime.

That’s perfectly fine. But of course, Vice President Kamala Harris had to claim that “lynching is not a relic of our past” and turn the whole thing stupid.

Remember, of course, that Harris had called Jussie Smollett’s attack a modern-day lynching because he had a piece of clothesline around his neck as part of the act.

We have done posts on “lynchings” that turned out to be suicides, although Donald Trump was blamed for a black Muslim teen who hanged himself in 2017. People seem almost anxious for a lynching. But as Harris said, it’s not a relic of the past.

But Biden can say it’s part of his legacy that lynchings are now a hate crime. Because Biden is the least racist person there is.

Bonus Biden gaffe:
