Does Joe Biden know the difference between someone of Navajo ancestry and someone of Spanish descent? Does he know the difference between the much-used and official government terms Native American and Hispanic? I mean he’s part of the government I hear. Like up high in it!
But judging by this clip, he hasn’t thumbed through ANY of the reading material during his 150+ years as a politician.
Does he know what he’s talking about? Do WE? What’s he getting at? We usurped the land from the … Spanish conquistadors? I thought conquistadoring was bad!!
As dumb as the line is, and of course very unwoke, you’ll be totally not in any way amazed to learn that the exceedingly old Biden has used it over and over and over during his interminable time in offices. I found quotes from him saying this exact thing back in 2011, and even then it was apparently not the first time.
I guess he doesn’t think the tribes who peopled the New World before Spain showed up are as unique as breakfast burritos? Or at least not as important.
