Former Vice President Joe Biden often leaves his friend and former comrade-in-arms Barack Obama on the campaign, but grimly referred to the 44th President in New Hampshire on Friday and recalled how it was with Martin Luther King Jr. and Robert F. Kennedy were murdered in 1968.
"My two political heroes were Martin Luther King and Bobby Kennedy," Biden said in a city hall in Hanover. Imagine what would have happened if Barack Obama had been assassinated after he was de facto named a candidate What would have happened in America? on Twitter, when his remarks became viral and some journalists blew up for "tracking clicks."
"It put young people in the room in the right perspective on how traumatic the killings of RFK and MLK were for the country." Symante Sanders, Biden's advisor, told Matt Viser, a reporter for the Washington Post.
"It's malicious to take this out of context," Andrew Bates, Biden Campaign's Fast Response Director, similarly railed with Chris Cillizza of CNN. "He highlighted to young people how traumatic the killings of RFK and MLK were for the country, and the crowd did not even respond because they understood its point of view." This click-hunt is disgusting. "

The campaign's spokeswoman, Kate Bedingfield, accused The Daily Beast to use "a sleazy headline" to describe Biden's utterances.
