Does it hurt politicians who endorse a candidate who compared Biden to a BOWL-OF-SHIT? [View all]

Does it hurt politicians who endorse a candidate who compared Biden to a BOWL-OF-SHIT? What are voters to make of something like that?

Considering the fact that Nina Turner used the "bowl of shit" comment, not once... but TWICE (and in a very public way) it's not as though this is something that flew under-the-radar. It's not as though her endorsers were completely unaware of her vulgar anti-Biden comments. Therefore, it's very unlikely that any of Nina's endorsers had no idea of what she said.

It's also unlikely that any of Nina's endorsers didn't know about the fact that Nina refused to endorse or support Biden in the general election against Trump, and that Nina supported Jill Stein instead of Hillary in the general election against Trump.

It doesn't seem plausible that any of Nina's endorsers have no idea that she abandoned the Democratic party to start her own "People's Party" to undermine and weaken the Democratic party... and that she's now only grudgingly running "as a" Democrat because her People's Party didn't have what it takes to get on the Ohio ballot.

So, with all the negative baggage that Nina Turner has (and all of her anti-Biden and anti-Democratic Party hostility) does it reflect poorly on the politicians who endorse Turner? Does it suggest that her endorsers AGREE with her vulgar statements? Are we to assume that her endorsers also share Turner's hostility toward the Democratic Party?

Basically: Does it hurt politicians who endorse a candidate who compared Biden to a BOWL-OF-SHIT?

Yes. Because of Turner's comments, it reflects POORLY on the politicians who endorse her.

No. It's okay if the politicians who endorse Turner also agree with her vulgar comments.
