Amy Klobuchar Bends The Knee, Urges Biden To Pick Black Woman For VP

Democrat Senator Amy Klobuchar has formally removed herself from consideration as Joe Biden's running mate and called for the spot to go to a woman of color.
The Minnesotan had at one time been near the top of the list but with the team Biden having gone all-in on playing the race card and after racist activists demanded that the former veep not choose her because she was white, her goose was cooked.
Klobuchar's political aspirations also suffered a mortal blow when the word got out that when she was a prosecutor that she refused to prosecute rogue Minnesota cop Derek Chauvin for a violent incident.
Chauvin would later become infamous for killing George Floyd, the unarmed black man whose death triggered a wave of domestic unrest including looting, murder, arson and has now morphed into an insurrection against President Trump.
She broke the news on MSNBC in an interview with the unhinged Lawrence O'Donnell where she also urged Biden to select a black female running mate.

Senator Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota took herself out of contention to be Joe Biden’s running mate Thursday, saying the Democratic nominee should select a woman of color for the ticket as the country grapples with racial injustice.
“This is a historic moment and America must seize on this moment,” Klobuchar said in an interview with Lawrence O’Donnell on MSNBC. “And I truly believe, as I actually told the vice president last night when I called him, that I think this is a moment to put a woman of color on that ticket.”
Biden has vowed to choose a female running mate and he has come under increasing pressure to pick a woman of color as protests over police brutality and racism have intensified in recent weeks.
The protests were sparked by the death of a Black man in the custody of the Minneapolis police on May 25. The incident has renewed criticism of Klobuchar’s past experience as a tough-on-crime prosecutor in that city.
Representative Jim Clyburn, whose endorsement helped Biden win the South Carolina primary and set him on the path to the nomination, said the protests after Floyd’s death were “tough timing” for Klobuchar.
Democrat Rep. James Clyburn who is the hidden hand pulling the strings behind the Biden campaign delivered the last rites to Klobuchar's hopes last month when after the video of Floyd's death went viral he told reporters that "We are all victims sometimes of timing, this is very tough timing for Amy Klobuchar, who I respect so much."
Clyburn's comments were the equivalent of being jabbed by a cattle prod to Biden who was then waffling on his commitment to discriminate against more qualified candidates to placate the Congressional Black Caucus and professional activists.
Prior to joining the enormous Democrat field, Minnesota's senior U.S. senator was best known for throwing things at subordinates and eating salad with a hair comb but she managed to emerge as a serious contender until Biden's campaign degenerated into the anti-white hatemongering that the party now represents.
Klobuchar was not on the short list of six finalists for Biden's running mate as was recently reported by the Associated Press.
