In comments at a Wall Street fundraising event at New York's Carlyle Hotel on Monday, Biden cited the late senators James O Eastland of MS and Herman E Talmadge of Georgia as two senators with whom he disagreed, but still worked with and "got things done". The former vice president referenced two leading segregationists he worked with back in there 1970s: Senators James O. Eastland (D-Miss.) and Herman E. Talmadge (D-Ga.), The Washington Post reported.

But Sanders himself says the tweet wasn't a dig, at least not at Warren.
"We didn't agree on much of anything", Biden said of the two men, who were prominent senators when Biden was elected in 1972. (That reads like a sentence I might get to use again.) Under normal circumstances, in a normal campaign, this week might have finished him off before the race even starts. "What other frightful stuff did you manage to build consensus on?" "Not the opposition, the enemy", he added.
"Trump forgot to talk about the gun crisis that we have in this country and the mass killings that we see and the 40000 people a year that die as a result of guns", Sanders said. Since there is no shared understanding of political reality right now - it got "disrupted", and I don't need to explain how or by whom - that's a problem.
Invoking Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders's goal of political "revolution", Biden suggested that he would be the antidote by making marginal changes that would improve the lives of working and middle class Americans without slapping onerous taxes on the rich.

But amid a firestorm of criticism, the ex-US vice-president said he had "detested" the views of late senators who favoured separating the races.
He wasn't the only Democratic candidate to criticize Biden's remarks.
"You don't joke about calling black men 'boys.' Men like [Sen.] James O. Eastland [(D-Miss.)] used words like that, and the racist policies that accompanied them, to perpetuate white supremacy and strip black Americans of our very humanity", Booker said.
Booker's comments came after Biden cited his relationships with former U.S. Sens. "Joe Biden seems to have tremendous support in the African American community. He should", Booker continued. "Eastland thought my multiracial family should be illegal". It's past time for apologies or evolution from @JoeBiden.
