Former Vice President Joe Biden has made a fool of himself on the campaign trail time and time again.
And today was no different.
In a rare interview with a group of Black and Latino journalists, Biden took SERIOUS offense to a reporter’s questioning of his cognitive abilities.
Though Biden previously suggested he is frequently tested on his mental functions, he went with a totally different message this time, lashing out by saying “NO, I haven’t taken a test. Why the hell would I take a test?”
And had he stopped there, he could’ve avoided gaffe territory. But of course, he didn’t.
The Gaffe King continued, saying “C’mon man, that’s like saying, ‘You — before you got on this program you took a test where you’re taking cocaine or not, what do you think? Huh? Are you a junkie?'”
The whole encounter has Twitter fired up and laughing – but the mainstream media has refused to call him out.
They won’t mention the fact that he contradicted his previous statements on CONSTANT cognitive testing, and they won’t bring up the fact that it is pretty offensive to ask a room full of minorities whether or not they have a drug habit.
There’s no doubt that had it been Trump, the only headlines would have MAJOR racial conotations.
Though Biden has NOT made it easy for himself lately, the media continues to help him out. Lucky, Joe.
