About this rating
What's True
The 2008 photograph shows Biden with Robert Byrd, a West Virginia senator who was during the 1940s a member and organizer for the Ku Klux Klan.
What's False
Byrd was never "Grand Wizard" of the Ku Klux Klan, and he later renounced his past white supremacist views and said his membership of the KKK was the "biggest mistake" he had ever made, years before he was photographed campaigning with Biden.

A photograph shared on social media in June 2019 showed former Vice President Joe Biden with the Grand Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan.

Research:
The photo does NOT show Biden with the grand Wizard of the Ku-Klux-clan, and to all we know no such photo exists..

So Snopes actually got the rating wrong, yes.

It's not mostly false, it's 100% false.

He was a kleagal not a grand wizard, fact he was posing with a former high ranking klansman.. Given his praise and support of segragationist policies in the past, and his recent racist gaffes, it's clear he has a racism issue.


Snopes is funny, they call nathan phillips claiming he was a vietnam vet as "unproven" yet this is labeled "mostly false".

Let me try and explain something to you. If Snopes is wrong on too many occasions it would go out of business I would think commonsense would tell you that

Didn't Hillary say that Robert Byrd was her "mentor"?

Yes, I think so...

Actually she said Robert Byrd was "a true American original, my friend and mentor..."

It's not just wrong with the position title, it's also purposefully false with the tense with the intent of insinuating he's with a current klansman and not someone 50+ years removed from their days in the klan.

Even using your corrected title of kleagal, for the wording to not be false it would've had to have said something to the effect of:

Does This Photo Show Joe Biden With A Former Kleagal Of The KKK?

The purpose of the wording was to be misleading. I would disagree with their use of the word "mostly".

Byrd was reformed and realized how despicable his behavior was. There is a former Klansman now who has written a book and speaks about the negativity of white supremacists. There are people who did very bad things like drug addicts and become clean and do things to help addicts.
