Sounds like an over-reaction to me.

The second tweet is by a senior advisor to Biden and it might be at the root of this story. The advisor gets a key thing wrong, however; Harris wasn't criticizing Biden for working with Eastland/Talmudge on the Voting Rights Act. It was for his work with them on the anti-busing bill.

@JamilSmith
The @JoeBiden team said that @KamalaHarris is “doing exactly what Trump wants,” per MSNBC. Fails on two levels. First, he doesn’t want a charismatic black candidate telling the truth about racism. Second, the idea Trump wants Biden out of the race, after tonight, seems laughable.

Let’s get real. @JoeBiden fought for civil rights for his entire life. He started his career as a public defender. To attack him because he worked to convince Repubs (yes, some with horrible views) to vote for the Voting Rights Act is outrageous and is exactly what Trump wants.
If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Joe Biden
