President Joe Biden took the stage and promptly made a flub that embarrassed the entire country. The Dems are walking into a disaster in 2022 if they keep letting Biden speak. They need, for the good of the country and their chances in 2022, to put Biden back in the basement.
He was always a terrible speaker, this has nothing to do with his stutter, he pauses at the wrong times, emphasizes the wrong words, and makes weird face gestures for effect that do not fit the words or the moment.
This is not a secret to the Dems, they know who Biden is. They put him out there anyway and this is what we get – national humiliation. If you need more proof check out what Biden said today.
Biden said: “I’ve adopted the attitude of the great negro at the time…the pitcher in the Negro leagues…went on to become a great pitcher in the pros, in the MLB after Jackie Robison, his name was Satchel Paige”
Leon Benjamin, a candidate for Congress in Virginia who is African American summed up how embarrassing Joe Biden is to the entire nation saying:
“It’s 2021 and the President of the United States is out here calling people negroes.
“That’s what they call “progressive” these days, huh?”
From The Sun:
Biden’s latest comments have caused social media users to question his choice of wording when referencing the legend.
One user tweeted: “You’ve got to be kidding me. Please don’t anyone make excuses for this. Please.”
Another person wrote: “wtf. How did people vote for this guy? He doesn’t even know what year he is living in.”
A third person said: “You can’t make this stuff up smh.”
Those standing in protest at arguably the most famous historically Black college and university are demanding that the Biden administration, Congress and their most famous alumnus — Vice President Kamala Harris — follow through on a promise.
Funding for the nation’s more than 100 HBCUs is one of many things in the president’s Build Back Better agenda. And from the point of its introduction in the spring, HBCU advocates and students had held out hope that President Joe Biden and Harris would deliver the $45 billion proposed for minority-serving institutions, including HBCUs like Howard.
Now it appears that the number will fall far short of the original proposal. As the Build Back Better framework was negotiated among Democrats, they steeply scaled down its scope in order to satisfy centrist members.
In the process, direct HBCU funding took a significant hit. The latest draft of the legislation calls for at least $2 billion of the $10 billion in MSI funding to go to HBCUs, though with additional money for Pell Grants for those who attend those institutions.
While that’s more than the federal government has ever dedicated to HBCUs and other minority serving institutions (Biden’s FY22 budget request was $1.06 billion for HBCU-specific funding), the same students who felt so hopeful in the spring are increasingly lamenting that the school won’t get the upgrade it needs.
