Presumptive Democrat nominee Joe Biden's latest racial gaffe once again shows the level of contempt that his party has for black people who they continue to take for granted.
Only weeks from the convention where he will deliver his acceptance speech from the safety of his home basement, lunchbucket Joe tripped over his own tongue when he said that the black community lacked diversity.
During a conference call with the National Association of Black Journalists, the former vice president strayed off-script and said that:
"What you all know but most people don't know, unlike the African American community, with notable exceptions, the Latino community is an incredibly diverse community with incredibly different attitudes about different things."
Awww, come on man!
Realizing that their candidate had just stepped in it, whoever writes Biden's tweets rushed to put out a statement of clarification.
Per Team Biden:
"Earlier today, I made some comments about diversity in the African American and Latino communities that I want to clarify. In no way did I mean to suggest the African American community is a monolith—not by identity, not on issues, not at all."
It's been a terrible week for Biden in terms of mental misfires with the 77-year-old already having gone off on a black CBS reporter who he asked if he was a junkie on cocaine.
On Friday, President Trump took to Twitter to call out Biden for his slip of the tongue.
Via The New York Post:
Joe Biden “lost the Black Vote” as a result of a disastrous interview he gave this week, President Trump said Friday.
Trump specifically highlighted Biden’s suggestion that Hispanic-Americans were more diverse in “attitude” than blacks.
“Sleepy Joe Biden just lost the Black Vote. This statement is a disaster from which their is no recovery!” Trump tweeted.
The president later deleted the tweet and replaced it with one saying Biden was “no longer worthy of the Black Vote.”
In an interview taped Tuesday with black and Hispanic journalists, Biden said: “Unlike the African-American community, with notable exceptions, the Latino community is an incredibly diverse community with incredibly different attitudes.”
The presumptive Democratic presidential nominee asked a black journalist if he was a “junkie” in the same interview after the reporter asked Biden if he had taken a cognitive test, as Trump has suggested he do.
On Thursday, while speaking to the press outside the White House, Trump told reporters that:
"Joe Biden, this morning, totally disparaged and insulted the black community. What he said is incredible. And I don’t know what’s going on with him, but it was a very insulting statement he made"
"I guess you’ll figure that out. You’ll see it in a little while. But it was a great insult to the black community."
Biden's gaffe brings back memories of his infamous exchange with black radio host Charlamagne tha God on the nationally syndicated "Breakfast Club" show where in the typically condescending manner of the white Democrat establishment said that "you ain't' really black" if you vote for Trump.
Biden who has bet the house on pandering to black voters and will be tabbing a woman of color as his running mate as soon as next week is his own worst enemy and no matter how far that the Democrats keep him from the campaign trail, he is one fatal gaffe away from alienating a good-sized chunk of that crucial demographic.
