Wait, Huh? Biden Was Able to Stay in Basement Because 'Some Black Woman Was Able to Stack Grocery Shelves'

“Biden Unplugged.” Doesn’t get any better. Or any worse, if you’re “Sleepy Joe” or a member of the campaign team tasked with electing him President of the United States in 37 days.

Given that he’s had some classic Biden moments when he’s tried to stick to his trusty teleprompter, Joe Biden riffing — sans teleprompter — is a nightmare for Democrats — and comedy gold to Republicans.

Such was the case with this beauty at a recent campaign event in Tampa — not a teleprompter to be seen — when he made yet another excuse tried to explain why he remained in isolation in his home, month after month, during the COVID pandemic and beyond.

“The American public, the blinders have been taken off. They’ve all of a sudden seen a hell of a lot clearer. Geez, the reason I was able to stay sequestered in my home is because… some black woman was able to stack the grocery shelf.”

Um, huh?

“Infidel Angela” tweeted a hilarious clip with music from “Jaws” added to Biden’s comment — and a surprise ending to make it even funnier.

She later suspected Twitter was removing retweets of her tweet — no way Twitter would do that, right? —  of Biden’s bizarre comment, suggesting “they don’t want it to get out.”

Whether or not Twitter has removed retweets of Infidel Angela’s tweet, there are more than enough available examples of Biden’s controversial comments about Black people to satisfy even the most discriminating of Biden gaffe aficionados.

Biden’s best effort of the campaign came during an interview with Charlamagne tha God, when he appeared flabbergasted by the notion that a Black person might vote for Donald Trump instead of him.

“I tell you if you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black.”

Again, gold. But there’s more, of course. There’s always more.

In a Saturday RedState piece titled Biden Talks About Imaginary People, Says He’s Been in the Senate 180 Years and Has to Be Helped by MSNBC Host, my colleague Nick Arama reported on an MSNBC interview with Biden, in which he lost his place and had to be helped by host Stephanie Ruhle, talked about random people without explaining who they were, and appeared to attempt to joke about being in the Senate for 180 years. Let’s just say his “comedic timing” was off.

Did I mention that during the “unusual” MSNBC interview, Biden also compared Donald Trump to Joseph Goebbels, Adolf Hitler’s Reich Minister of Propaganda of Nazi Germany?

Ruhle was horrified by the vile comparison, of course, angrily admonishing Biden with [Cue the crickets].

Incidentally, the first presidential debate is little more than 48 hours away, as I write. The time has come, America. For popcorn.
