Joe Biden did it again! He gaffed again while trying to pander to the gay community in Seattle.
He spoke at a Pride fundraiser on Saturday in Seattle.
According to the Seattle Times, guests had paid a minimum of $1,000 to dine at the home of public relations executive and gay rights activist Roger Nyhus and to meet the candidate.
Nyhus posted Instagram photos of Biden during the fundraiser:
Biden told the crowd that he was one of the first Obama administration officials to support same-sex marriage.
He gaffed again when he spoke about how far the country has come in terms of recognizing the rights of the LGBT community:
Red State reports that Joe Biden said that “just five years ago, it would have been acceptable for a businessman to make “fun of a gay waiter.”
His remark was not received well by guests who called out, “Not in Seattle!”
It wouldn’t have been acceptable anywhere in the U.S. to make fun of a gay waiter five years ago or even fifteen years ago. In fact, why would anyone make fun of a gay waiter anyway?

Joe Biden has been a one-man gaffe machine during his time as a candidate for the Democratic nomination for president in 2020. He really can’t help himself. He’s being exposed little by little every time he speaks.
BIDEN’S “GANGBANGER” MOMENT WAS ANOTHER AWKWARD GAFFE:
It’s interesting that the media and the Democrats are just now bringing out Joe Biden’s past dealings with race. Where were they in 2008 and the eight years of Obama’s presidency? This is nothing new, but now the media isn’t giving him a pass since the powers on the left realize he’s not the candidate. It doesn’t help that Biden keeps making self-inflicted mistakes and big gaffes.
Biden had a dreadful debate performance and then came out the next day to try and recover. He made the remarks at Jesse Jackson’s Rainbow Push headquarters. Biden immediately began pandering to the crowd mentioning race and the perceived injustices of being black in 2019. Biden made several cringe-worthy remarks, but one stood out to Cory Booker:
Joe Biden had this to say about “that kid wearing a hoodie”…
“We’ve got to recognize that kid wearing a hoodie may very well be the next poet laureate and not a gangbanger.”
Cory Booker tweeted out to admonish Biden:
“This isn’t about a hoodie. It’s about a culture that sees a problem with a kid wearing a hoodie in the first place. Our nominee needs to have the language to talk about race in a far more constructive way.”

Funny how you didn’t hear any of the negatives about Biden when he was running with Obama. Biden has a huge record of saying racially insensitive things even about Obama.
And then I said, “Not a gangbanger.”
