Joe Biden is getting a lot of side-eye this morning after a statement he made last night during a campaign appearance in Iowa.

The former vice president and 2020 Democratic presidential candidate said that “poor kids are just as bright and just as talented as white kids,” during a conversation about discrimination expererienced by low-income students, @nbcnews reports.


“We have this notion that somehow if you’re poor, you cannot do it. Poor kids are just as bright and just as talented as white kids,” Biden said during a town hall in Des Moines with the Asian and Latino Coalition. He paused, then quickly clarified, “wealthy kids, black kids, Asian kids. No, I really mean it, but think how we think about it,” he said.

His campaign said that he misspoke and immediately corrected himself. Kate Bedingfield, Biden’s deputy campaign manager, said he was making the point that “all children deserve a fair shot, and children born into lower-income circumstances are just as smart as those born to wealthy parents.”

Regardless of the slip-up, it didn’t take long for Trump’s team to pounce on Biden’s mistake.

“Yikes…have fun mitigating that one,” Andrew Clark, Trump campaign’s rapid response director, tweeted.

That later turned into a back and forth between Trump and Biden’s teams.

“Trump is desperate to change the subject from his atrocious record of using racism to divide this country,” Bedingfield said.

Roommates, what are your thoughts on this one? Let us know.
