The Daily Wire reports that Joe Biden is expected to attend George Floyd’s funeral. Biden, however, is not expected to attend the funerals of any of the innocent Americans murdered during riots over the past two weeks. Nor will he be attending the funerals of the black men killed by other black men every day in cities across the country.
Floyd’s funeral provides the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee a political opportunity that the others do not. And that, of course, is all this is. Biden is using Floyd’s dead body as a campaign platform, just as he used Floyd’s dying words as a fundraising gimmick. It’s crass, disgusting, and offensive. But that’s not the most outrageous thing about this story.
