Joe Biden nails it

President Joe Biden handled the Derek Chauvin trial masterfully, waiting until the jury was locked away in deliberations before announcing his own personal view that Chauvin should be convicted. The President isn’t supposed to weigh in on criminal cases, because the defendant can use it as grounds for appeal. Biden knows that, so he handled things accordingly.

Once the jury announced its guilty verdict, Biden then showed that he understood the importance of the verdict to the Black community by having Vice President Kamala Harris speak about it first, with Biden speaking second.

President Biden then tweeted this: “‘I can’t breathe.’ Those were George Floyd’s last words. We cannot let them die with him. We have to keep hearing them. We must not turn away. We cannot turn away.”
