Following the logic of Joe Biden is difficult on a good day, and his appearance on ABC’s Good Morning America on Friday wasn’t a good day for ol’Joe.
ABC played back a clip of Biden during the times of the Clinton impeachment where he said:
It would have been wrong for Richard Nixon to have been removed from office based upon a purely partisan vote. No president should be removed from office merely because one party enjoys a commanding lead in either house of congress.
Anchor George Stephanopoulos then asked, “If a partisan impeachment was wrong in 1974, wrong in 1998, why isn't it wrong now?
“Because it's not a partisan impeachment. He violated the Constitution, period,” Biden replied.
Logic be damned.
“Only Democrats voted for it in the house and one independent,” Stephanopoulos said in attempt fire up some of Biden’s neurons.
“Well, that doesn't mean that the facts, the underlying facts, George, whether the Constitution has been violated."
