BIDEN: “…particularly for African Americans and Hispanic workers and veterans — you know, the workers without high school diplomas” pic.twitter.com/CZyCx23M8Z— RNC Research (@RNCResearch) September 14, 2023
He said “the” not “and”.— 🇺🇸LandoftheFree🇺🇸 (@LandoftheF7420) September 15, 2023
So was the White House trying to cover up another example of Biden’s “inherent racism,” the kind Democrats accuse all white people of? After all, wasn’t he the one who described Barack Obama as “the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy”? Then there was the time he insulted Indian-Americans by saying, “You cannot go to a 7-Eleven or a Dunkin’ Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent. I’m not joking.” And who could forget his “poor kids are just as bright as white kids” gaffe? In this case, to be as charitable as possible, maybe Biden meant to say “and” but simply didn’t get it out. These days he’s not exactly known for his elocution, after all. Or maybe he blurted out exactly what he meant — that African-Americans, Hispanics and veterans don’t have high school diplomas. Given his extensive history of comments that would make a DEI consultant cringe, the latter seems more likely. Whatever the case, did the White House intentionally try to make Biden sound less racist by sneaking a tiny little “and” into the transcript? I don’t think anyone has any question about that.

I don’t hear an “and” in there anywhere.— Brandon Groleau (@BrandonGroleau) September 15, 2023
