Former Vice President Joe Biden has been forced to apologize for using the word 'lynching' when describing former President Bill Clinton's impeachment in 1998, just days after he blasted President Trump for using the exact same word.

Biden tweeted late on Tuesday night:

"This wasn't the right word to use, and I'm sorry about that."

During a CNN interview in 1998, Biden used the word 'lynching' when defending then-President Clinton on-air.

But not missing an opportunity to blast Trump, Biden said, unlike him, the current president used the word to 'deliberately' evoke racist connotations.

'Trump, on the other hand, chose his words deliberately today in his use of the word lynching and continues to stoke racial divides in this country daily,' Biden argued.

The former Vice President is now being accused of hypocrisy after describing Trump's remarks as 'despicable' for comparing the impeachment inquiry to 'a lynching.'

In a CNN interview with Wolf Blitzer Biden said the impending impeachment proceedings against then Clinton could be viewed as 'partisan lynching.'

'Even if the President should be impeached, history is going to question whether or not this was just a partisan lynching or whether or not it was something that in fact met the standard, the very high bar, that was set by the founders as to what constituted an impeachable offense,' Biden said.

The term 'Lynching' refers to the horrific extrajudicial killings of African Americans carried out by white supremacists in the UA in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

“All Republicans must remember what they are witnessing here – a lynching,” Trump wrote on Twitter.

“But, we will WIN!”

“So some day, if a Democrat becomes President and the Republicans win the House, even by a tiny margin, they can impeach the President, without due process or fairness or any legal rights,” he wrote.

In contrast, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) last week compared the Democrat-led impeachment effort against Trump to the 'American Revolution.'
