Well, well, well. Jim Crow Joe has gone and done it again.
You can call it a gaffe, or maybe that's just how he is, but during a speech on Veterans Day at Arlington National Cemetery, Joe Biden went from a respectful speech to full-blown racist in a matter of seconds.
"I’ve adopted the attitude of the great n*gro at the time, pitcher of the N*gro leagues, who went on to become a great pitcher in the pros — in Major League Baseball — after Jackie Robinson. His name was Satchel Paige," Biden said.
Biden then went on to tell a stupid joke/story about Satchel Paige.
"And Satchel Paige on his 47th birthday pitched a win against Chicago. And all the press went in and said, ‘Satch is amazing. Forty-seven years old. No one’s ever, ever pitched a win at age 47. How do you feel about being 47?’ He said, ‘Boys, that’s not how I look at it.’ And they said, ‘How do you look at it, Satch? And he said, ‘I look at it this way: How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you were?’"
This is the same story/joke that he told Pope Francis when he met with him at the Vatican last month.
Liberals want to call President Trump a racist, which is really not rooted in anything substantial. They just want to call him racist because people have said he's racist. It's just a circular argument. So they can say that all they want, but President Trump never stood before a crowd and called someone a negro.
Why does he always want to mention that he was in the negro leagues anyway? He also played in the MLB for many years. Why can't he just mention he was a baseball player? Why mention he was black at all?
