(FOX NEWS) – Former Vice President Joe Biden often name-drops his friend and former running mate Barack Obama on the campaign trail, but he made a grim reference to the 44th president in New Hampshire on Friday while recalling what it was like when Martin Luther King Jr. and Robert F. Kennedy were assassinated in 1968.
“My two political heroes were Martin Luther King and Bobby Kennedy,” Biden said at a town hall in Hanover. “My senior semester, they were both shot and killed. Imagine what would have happened if, God forbid, Barack Obama had been assassinated after becoming the de facto nominee. What would have happened in America?”
Several Biden campaign staffers took to Twitter as his remarks were going viral, blasting some journalists for “chasing clicks.”
