Joe Biden Commits to a Woman to Be His Vice President, Bernie Sanders Says He 'Likely' Would Too

Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders are addressing their potential vice presidential running mates.

The 77-year-old former Vice President and the 78-year-old Vermont Senator went head-to-head once again during the latest Democratic Debate on Sunday night (March 15) at the CNN Studios in Washington, D.C.

During the debate, Biden committed to choosing a woman to be his Vice President if he won the Democratic candidate nomination.

“There are a number of women qualified to be president tomorrow,” Biden said. “I would pick a woman to be my vice president.

Bernie also said that “in all likelihood” he too would choose a woman to be his vice president.

“For me, it’s not just nominating a woman. It is making sure that we have a progressive woman and there are progressive women out there,” Bernie said. “So my very strong tendency is more in that direction.”

Potential women in the running include former Georgia House of Representatives Member Stacey Abrams, Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren, California Senator Kamala Harris, New Hampshire Junior Senator Jeanne Shaheen, and New Hampshire Junior Senator Maggie Hassan.

Bernie Sanders Thinks Joe Biden Can Beat Donald Trump In Election: 'Between You and Me'

Bernie Sanders believes his current rival, front-runner former Vice President Joe Biden, could beat President Donald Trump in the general election.

While sitting down for an interview on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon on Wednesday (March 11), the 78-year-old U.S. Senator and Democratic presidential candidate said that he thinks Americans were ready to move past the Trump presidency, saying that Biden, who most analysts now see as the clear favorite to win the Democratic nomination, could win.

“I do,” Bernie told Fallon when asked if Biden could beat Trump. “And I think, you know, when you have a president who is a pathological liar,” he continued. “When you have a president who truly– apparently has never read the Constitution of the United States, who thinks he is above the law, who is a racist and a sexist and all of that stuff, I think even Republicans and moderates are gonna say you know what, we can’t have four more years of this guys.”

Senator Bernie Sanders also talked about President Trump‘s mistakes handling the coronavirus pandemic, what he thinks the current administration should do to combat the illness and how his grandkids influence his politics.

Flavor Flav Issues Cease & Desist For Bernie Sanders Campaign Because of Public Enemy Rally Performance

Bernie Sanders was hit with a cease and desist from Flavor Flav.

After hearing that Public Enemy member Chuck D was slated to perform under the group name, Flavor Flav reacted with a cease and desist letter to the campaign.

Rolling Stone reports that Flavor Flav’s lawyer Matthew Friedman, accused the campaign of using his client’s “unauthorized likeness, image and trademarked clock” to promote the upcoming rally, although the musician has not “endorsed any political candidate.”

The letter also emphasizes that the “planned performance will only be Chuck D of Public Enemy, it will not be a performance by Public Enemy. Those who truly know what Public Enemy stands for know what time it is, there is no Public Enemy without Flavor Flav.”

Chuck D issued a statement to the magazine following the letter.

“Flavor chooses to dance for his money and not do benevolent work like this. He has a year to get his act together and get himself straight or he’s out,” he shared.

A lawyer for Chuck D added, “From a legal standpoint, Chuck could perform as Public Enemy if he ever wanted to; he is the sole owner of the Public Enemy trademark. He originally drew the logo himself in the mid-80’s, is also the creative visionary and the group’s primary songwriter, having written Flavor’s most memorable lines.”
