In the digital age, every word you type or speak lives with you forever.
Of course, everybody has their gaffes… but Joe Biden has far more than others.
And you won’t believe what Joe Biden called this baseball legend in his latest humiliating gaffe.
Just the other day, Biden was giving a rambling Veterans Day speech at Arlington National Cemetery when out the blue, Biden stammered:
“I’ve adopted the attitude of the great negro at the time, pitcher of the negro leagues, who went on to become a great pitcher in the pros — in Major League Baseball — after Jackie Robinson. His name was Satchel Paige.”
Why he was so off topic, we may never know, but the “great negro?” Really?
In all honesty, it’s not a big deal. Was it racist? No. But off color? Absolutely.
And what is truly amazing is how he brushed off that gaffe so easily.
If any other person on earth – especially Donald Trump – said anything remotely close to that, then we would never hear the end of it.
The truth is, most of the corporate-controlled sports media (ESPN, the Network Sports, and all of the Professional Sports Leagues) are nothing more than woke party apparatchiks.
Biden and his cohorts can do whatever they want and never need to worry about the consequences.
What else is new?
Of course, we should all dream of a day where every little comment and off color remark is not headline news… but that standard should apply to everyone.
In fact just a couple weeks ago, mainstream media was calling Trump a white supremacist for tomahawk chopping along with tens of thousands of Braves fans at a Braves game during the World Series.
Yet not a single offensive word or remark was quoted from Trump.
The lack of coverage from this gaffe of Biden’s is just another case of yellow (sports) journalism at its finest.
