At the 46th Annual Gala of the Caucus Institute, Joe Biden made another gaffe while praising Sister Norma Pimental, the executive director of Catholic Charities of the Rio Grande Valley.
Seemingly out of nowhere, Biden then bizarrely expressed admiration for the “Congressional Black Caucus.”
This latest mistake adds to a long list of similar verbal blunders that have been made by Biden during his time in office.
“I know Sister Norma lives the lessons nuns taught me growing up. Lessons based on the Gospel of Matthew: feed the hungry, care for the sick, welcome strangers. They echo what my dad taught me, and I mean this sincerely, my dad used to say, ‘Everyone, everyone is entitled to be treated with dignity and respect.’”
Adding, “The Congressional Black Caucus embodies all those values.”
This, on the heels of his recent suggestion that blacks and Hispanics don’t have high school diplomas.
“We’ve seen record lows in unemployment, particularly, and I’ve focused on this my whole career, particularly for African-Americans and Hispanic workers and veterans—You know, the workers without high school diplomas! And the lowest unemployment rate for women now!” Biden said.
That gaffe was so embarrassing, The White House was forced to quietly edit the transcript.

Four years ago on the campaign trail, Joe Biden asserted that “poor kids are just as bright and just as talented as white kids.”
“We have this notion that some how if you’re poor you can not do it. Poor kids are just as bright and talented as white kids,” Biden said before pausing, catching himself, and adding “wealthy kids, black kids, Asian kids,” Biden said.

And don’t forget, Biden infamously told Charlamagne Tha God “If you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump then you ain’t Black.”
This is disgusting.
