We got the British TV host leaving Staples Center Tuesday night and asked about Trump's "lynching" tweet to describe his potential impeachment, and he points out many politicians have used the language for many years ... so going after the Prez is totally disingenuous.
Or, as he puts it ... it's just another fake scandal.
Morgan's case in point is Biden -- who called Trump's tweet "abhorrent" -- using the same term in 1998 to describe the impeachment process at the time against President Bill Clinton.
Joe said in a CNN interview ... "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."
After the clip surfaced, Biden apologized for using the word, but stuck to his criticism of Trump ... claiming POTUS chose his words deliberately to continue to stoke racial divides in America.
10:21 AM PT -- Common's echoing Morgan about one thing -- dropping the "lynching" term when discussing politics shows a major lack of understanding of the negative history of the treatment of people of color in the U.S.
The rapper/actor/activist adds that going forward ... it's the wrong choice of words, period.
