Joe Biden Just Asked a Black Reporter if He Does Cocaine. No, Really.
Far be it from me to give Democrats advice, but they really need to be careful who Joe Biden gets interviewed by. For a Democrat, he particularly seems to not respond well when the interviewer is a black guy (see Biden Says, “If You Don’t Support Me And You Are African American, You Ain’t Black!” and Biden in 1977 said, ‘Integrating Black Students Would Turn Schools into ‘A Jungle… A Racial Jungle’’). I’m sure he thought this was funny. As someone who has had more than a few jokes not land before, they always sound better in your head. The difference is I’m not a guy running for president and for the most part no one questions my mental facilities. Biden doesn’t have that luxury. Which as you’ll see in this video … I mean, just watch the video.
Reporter: Have you taken a cognitive test?
The Democrat Presidential Candidate: C’mon man. That’s like saying you, before you got in this program, if you take a test where you’re taking cocaine or not, what do you think huh? Are you a junkie?
Reporter: So I take it that’s a no?
America 2020, where the leader of the free world is being decided over who aced a cognitive test more better than the other guy.
I’m not saying Biden had to brag about how well he did on a cognitive test (if he took one). That doesn’t send the message the person bragging thinks it does. But if a reporter asks, you answer with a simple “yes.” Then let the reporter revel in awkward silence because he didn’t have a follow-up. Which, granted, dances around the fact that if Biden had taken a cognitive test, all of his answers would have probably been “potato.” Doesn’t matter what the question was. He just likes potatoes.
The Biden Campaign is working really hard to convince people he really wants to debate Donald Trump. I can’t imagine they’re all that convinced themselves.
