Today is President Joe Biden’s fiftieth day in office. In commemoration of the mark, below is a list of seven cringeworthy moments since Biden’s inauguration.
1. Biden claims, “minorities … don’t know how to use, know how to get online”
2. Biden labels the desire not to wear a mask as “Neanderthal thinking”
“We are on the cusp of being able to fundamentally change the nature of this disease because of the way in which we’re able to get vaccines in people’s arms. … The last thing, the last thing we need is Neanderthal thinking, that, ‘In the meantime, everything’s fine. Take off your mask. Forget it.’ It still matters,” he said.
Biden said in relation to China’s prosecution of ethnic Uyghurs that he’s “not going to speak out against … what he’s [President Xi Jinping] is doing with the Uyghurs.” Biden then stated, “He [Xi] gets it,” posturing that “culturally there are different norms” about how humans should be treated.
