The last thing Biden needs is another scandal on his hands. But it’s almost like he can’t help himself.
Because Joe Biden made a shockingly racist statement in the worst place imaginable.
Many Americans question whether Joe Biden is fit to be the Commander-in-Chief of the United States.
His racist outbursts just add fuel to the fire for the already scandal-ridden president.
Who can forget when he told African American voters “if you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black.”
And now Joe is back at it again.
During a Black History Month event, President Biden told a White House audience, “I may be a white boy, but I’m not stupid,” in a cringeworthy attempt at self-deprecation.
The unusual remark came after the president, who is 80, joked that House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY), who is black, no longer talks to him.
“I may be a white boy, but I’m not stupid. I know where the power is … you think I’m joking. I learned a long time ago about the Divine Nine,” Biden said, referring to a group of African American fraternities and sororities.
Jeffries “is here in spite of the fact that when he ran the first time, I campaigned for him,” the president added before giving a shout-out to Congressional Black Caucus chairman Steven Horsford (D-Nev.).
“I campaigned for him too. You know what this means is, they don’t talk to me anymore,” Biden said. “I’m only kidding.”
The oldest president in history has a history of making embarrassing racial remarks.
In January 2022, Biden informed students at Atlanta’s historically black institutions that he was detained during civil rights marches, despite the lack of evidence.
During the 2020 campaign, the then-Democratic candidate was chastised for stating blacks were less diversified in terms of political thinking than Hispanics — before asking a black journalist if he was a “junkie” after the reporter questioned whether he had passed a cognitive test.
Biden also falsely claimed during the 2020 campaign he “had the great honor of being arrested … trying to get to see [Nelson Mandela] on Robbens [sic] Island.” He then conceded that wasn’t the case and claimed that he was considering being separated during a congressional trip to Lesotho, however a Democratic colleague on the trip contradicted that account as well.
During the 2020 campaign, Biden was again chastised after a 2017 recording surfaced of him reminiscing about young black youngsters messing with his blonde leg hair while he was a lifeguard.
Going further back, to 2007, Biden praised his fellow Democratic presidential candidate (and future boss) Barack Obama as “the first sort of mainstream African American who is articulate and bright and clean. That’s a storybook, man.”
During his Black History Month remarks on Monday, Biden praised Rep. James Clyburn (D-SC) for endorsing him ahead of the 2020 South Carolina primary, saving him from a rout by left-wing Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.).
Biden also emphasized that he chose a black woman, Sen. Kamala Harris, as his vice president and another black woman, Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson, as his first and so far only Supreme Court candidate.
Unfortunately for Biden, his comments only prove that he is a pandering politician, and a bad one at that.
