Freudian slip anyone? Former Vice President Joe Biden just added to his long list of gaffes and this racially-tinged one is a doozy. Within hours of saying he values “truth over facts,” he appeared to conflate poverty with skin color before correcting himself. He says he misspoke – which he does a lot evidently.
The seemingly chosen-one for the Democrat’s 2020 presidential bid told a crowd of supporters in Iowa that “poor kids are just as bright and talented as white kids,” which insinuates that if you are poor, you are a minority and if you are smart and talented, you are white. Just wow. This guy must have a whole team just to cover for his moronic statements.
“We should challenge these students, we should challenge students in these schools and have advance placement programs in these schools,” Biden told the Asian and Latino Coalition PAC, in comments reported by Fox News. “We have this notion that somehow if you’re poor, you cannot do it. Poor kids are just as bright and just as talented as white kids.”
Good luck with mitigating that gaffe. Geez. Uncle Joe is going to be a hoot to watch if he is the nominee for the Democrats… Trump will crush him repeatedly. Pass the popcorn.
Joe Biden slip-up in Iowa tonight.

After the gaffe, Biden paused for the requisite applause and the audience robotically did so. Then Biden seemed to catch himself over the goof (Is that someone in your ear, Joe?) and proceeded to try and fix it by expanding the list of talented kids to include blacks and Asians.
“Wealthy kids, black kids, Asian kids. No, I really mean it. But think how we think about it,” he added. Too little, far too late dude.

This whole unfortunate incident came on the heels of another mind-blowingly dumb comment where Biden seemed to think “facts” and “truth” are somehow opposites. “We choose unity over division. We choose science over fiction. We choose truth over facts,” Joe Biden enthusiastically told a crowd of cheering supporters. Man, how bone-jarringly dumb can you get? And that includes the people clapping.
From The Daily Wire:
“The comments add to the already long list of gaffes throughout his career, including during the 2008 presidential campaign, in which he condescendingly referred to Obama as an “articulate” and “clean” African American.
“I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy,” Biden said. “I mean, that’s a storybook, man.”
“In response to the criticism, Biden told reporters at the time his comments had been taken out of context, which he will likely do when progressives pounce on him for seemingly equating poverty with skin color.
Joe Biden: Donald Trump is the most racisty racist of all the racists!
*rally crowd cheers wildly*
And I’m here to tell you: “poor kids are just as bright and just as talented as white kids!”

“Barack Obama is probably the most exciting candidate that the Democratic or Republican Party has produced at least since I’ve been around,” Biden said in his defense. “And he’s fresh. He’s new. He’s smart. He’s insightful. And I really regret that some have taken totally out of context my use of the word ‘clean.'”
“In this election cycle, Biden issued his biggest gaffe of the campaign when he praised two Democrat segregationists for being examples in political civility. “I was in a caucus with James O. Eastland. He never called me boy, he always called me son,” said Biden, reportedly in a southern accent.
“Sen. James O. Eastland (D-MS) fervently opposed civil rights and has been referred to as the “Voice of the White South.” Biden also held up Sen. Herman Talmadge (D-GA) as an example of political civility — a man whom Biden described as being “one of the meanest guys I ever knew.”
“Well guess what? At least there was some civility,” he said of Talmadge. “We got things done. We didn’t agree on much of anything. We got things done. We got it finished. But today you look at the other side and you’re the enemy. Not the opposition, the enemy. We don’t talk to each other anymore.”
“Beyond the gaffes, the former vice president has largely turned his attention to President Trump this week, whom he has accused of enabling white supremacists through his rhetoric.
“In both clear language and in code, this president has fanned the flames of white supremacy in this nation,” Biden said in the wake of the horrific shooting in El Paso, Texas. “Trump offers no moral leadership, no interest in unifying the nation, no evidence the presidency has awakened his conscience in the least. Our president has more in common with George Wallace than George Washington.”‘
Yet another entry added to the long list of Joe Biden's career of gaffes.

You know, the whole ‘taken out of context’ excuse only works so long before people figure out you’re just as dumb as a box of rocks. And creepy as well. Biden seems to be incapable of filtering himself properly. Trump says what he means and Obama was very selective in his wording, but Uncle Joe is a political trainwreck.
I hope he gets the nomination. Trump agrees: “I saw his comment. Joe Biden is not playing with a full deck. This is not somebody you can have as your president. But if he got the nomination, I would be thrilled.”

And it amazes me that a man who continually accuses President Trump of being a racist (and he isn’t), can make as many racist comments as he has in the past and just be given a pass over it. Hypocrisy, thy name is Biden.
Unfortunately for Biden, not everyone loves him on the left and they may very well use this against him. Politics is a vicious game… not just between parties, but within their ranks. It’s dog-eat-dog and no holds barred. Trust me, I know.
I want to give Biden grace on this slip-up but media rules, as seen with Trump coverage, say otherwise. https://t.co/K04YKWXpx9

I seriously wonder if Biden is suffering from dementia sometimes. Not kidding.
The rapid response team for the Trump 2020 campaign posted the video on social media, where it quickly got many views and retweets. At this rate, Trump won’t have to break a sweat to win another term. Thousands attend his rallies while the Democrats struggle to get a handful. Their candidates are so radical it is laughable and none are going to beat President Trump. Then there is Joe Biden. Keep it up… Trump loves it.
I really hope Joe Biden gets the nomination. The gaffe machine will make the general election so much more fun to watch. https://t.co/KUmAymADs0

VIDEO: Rashida Tlaib: Dems Discussing Arresting Trump Officials
It’s crystal clear..that the left should never ever be allowed into our government. These are dangerous folks.
Maybe Rashida should be arrested for her connections to Islamic terrorists. The fact that this woman is in our government…is despicable!
Via The Daily Wire:
Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) stated on Tuesday that House Democrats were discussing behind closed doors how to arrest the members of President Donald Trump’s administration who did not comply with congressional subpoenas.
“Let me tell you, this is pretty — and this is the last caucus conversation we had. Do you know this is really unprecedented? This is the worst time we’ve ever had a situation like this,” Tlaib said during a town hall meeting. “So they’re trying to figure out — no joke — they’re trying to figure out, ‘Well, is it the D.C. police that goes and gets them?’ No, no.”
“What are we hoping? I mean, I’m not in those kinds of conversations, but I’m asking, like, you know, what happens? And they’re like, ‘Well, Rashida, we’re trying to figure it out ourselves because this is uncharted territory,’” she continued. “No, I’m telling you that they’re trying to be like, ‘Well, where are we going to put them? Where are we going to hold them?’ No, I mean those are the kinds of things they’re trying to tread carefully.”

Accordingly, in an escalating effort to force White House officials comply with congressional subpoenas, House Democrats have reportedly been reexamining holding those members of the administration in inherent contempt — a power that the legislature has not used since 1935.
The Conservative Partnership Institute (CPI) explains that inherent contempt is the oldest of three strategies that Congress can use to enforce subpoenas. According to the Washington, D.C.-based think tank:
“Since 1935, Congress has relied on the executive and judicial branches when people refuse to comply with congressional subpoenas. This practice makes sense: if Congress cannot get the information it needs on its own authority, then it can rely on the authority of the other branches of government. However, there is another option. Instead of turning to another branch, Congress can legally imprison or fine individuals who refuse to comply.”
Tlaib incorrectly suggested that the process could be enforced by the Washington, D.C. Police Department — the procedure actually only involves the chamber that is concerned. Following a contempt citation, the individual is arrested by the chamber’s sergeant-at-arms, and subsequently brought to the floor for punishment, which may include imprisonment.
