(The Post Millennial) – Earlier today President Biden visited North Carolina amidst a White House push to get people to take the COVID vaccine.
He spoke to a crowd in Raleigh as he met with workers and community members. With this state in particular being “behind the national average for vaccinations,” the President spoke bluntly to the audience about the situation.
“It’s awful hard as well, to get Latinx vaccinated as well. Why? They’re worried they’ll be vaccinated and deported.”
That was immediately following Biden’s remarks about the black population and potential vaccine hesitancy.
“There’s a reason why it’s been harder to get African Americans, initially, to get vaccinated. Because they’re used to being experimented on. The Tuskegee Airmen and others. People have memories. People have long memories.”
It wasn’t the first gaffe moment President Biden had today. When Joe had a press conference to talk about the bi-partisan deal reached on the new infrastructure bill, he broke into bouts of whispering at key points. Vice President Harris had to remind Biden to talk about the Florida condo building collapse at the event.
The last time an occasion like this had happened to Joe Biden was at the G7 conference, overseas, earlier this month.
