Joe Biden made some racially insensitive remarks which triggered a major reaction by his Dem opponents. The Daily Caller reports:
New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio took former Vice President Joe Biden to task Friday over comments he made that were widely panned as racially insensitive.
Biden caused a firestorm Thursday when he stated that “poor kids are just as bright and just as talented as white kids” at a campaign event in Iowa. De Blasio responded by saying people shouldn’t “quickly dismiss” the former vice president’s comments as a slip of the tongue.
“To quickly dismiss [Biden’s] words as a mere ‘slip of the tongue’ is as concerning as what he said,” the mayor said on Twitter. “We need to have a real conversation about the racism and sexism behind ‘electability.’”
De Blasio is currently in the midst of a long-shot presidential campaign, with most polls showing the New York City mayor polling at zero or 1%.
Biden’s slip could hurt his chances in the primary, but most importantly, is he mentally sound enough to become President?
