Joe Biden just completely lost it on live television. The presumptive Democratic nominee for president has shocked the nation — and the proof was caught on video. This could destroy his campaign.
Speaking with NPR’s Lulu Garcia-Navarro, Biden said that “unlike the African American community, with notable exceptions, the Latino community is an incredibly diverse community, with incredibly different attitudes about things.”
Of course, Garcia-Navarro “did not ask Biden why he thought the black community was not diverse,” as noted by Breitbart News — she just “moved on to a different topic.” The reason for this interview makes the statement even more awkward.
Biden was taking part in a virtual convention with the National Association of Black Journalists (NABJ) and the National Association of Hispanic Journalists (NAHJ). One has to wonder, then, what would possess him to say such a thing.
Katrina Pierson, a senior advisor to Trump’s 2020 campaign, tweeted out the video of Biden and asked a simple question: “Hey media – Are you guys gonna cover this or continue to pretend that this is acceptable?”
Democrats, of course, have already tried to defend Biden’s remarks, but the damage is done. The media likes to paint Trump as the racist one, yet Biden has said more controversial things on race issues than pretty much any other politician.
