Biden says today's Republicans are 'worse' than 'real racists' he served with as Senator

"I've served with all these guys that have terrible records on race, but guess what? [Sitting Republicans] are worse."

During a ritzy fundraising gala in the Bay Area this week also attended by former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Joe Biden claimed that today's Republicans were "worse" than "real racists" he's worked with in the past.

The president even went so far as to suggest that segregationist Strom Thurmond had a better record when it came to race than members of the GOP in 2024.

"I've been a senator since '72," Biden told the audience, per the New York Post. "I've served with real racists. I've served with Strom Thurmond."

"I've served with all these guys that have terrible records on race," he continued, "but guess what? These guys [sitting Republicans] are worse. These guys do not believe in basic democratic principles."

Biden's comments quickly spread across social media, and caught the attention of Republican House Speaker Mike Johnson.

"Outrageous," he wrote in a post on X. "The least popular President to seek re-election is now so desperate and so underwater in the polls he's playing the race card from the bottom of the deck."


"Biden & radical progressive Democrats help cartels flood our country with terrorists & fentanyl, fund Hamas to attack Israel, put boys in girls locker rooms, punish cops over criminals, destroy affordable/reliable energy in the name of “climate,” & divide America by race," Rep. Chip Roy added.

The president has repeatedly attacked the GOP, attempting to paint its MAGA wing as a group of radical, far-right, anti-democratic politicians seeking to do away with Americans' rights. During an event in Beverly Hills earlier in the week, he repeated his line that "This is not your father's Republican Party."

"This is a different party, and I mean that sincerely," he said, noting that outside the MAGA sect, "there's a lot of really, really fine members of Congress that are Republicans that I disagree with, but we're friends and they play it straight."
