Here’s what President Biden actually said during his Veterans Day speech yesterday:
I’ve adopted the attitude of the great Negro — at the time, pitcher in the Negro Leagues, went on to become a great pitcher in the pros, in the Major League Baseball after Jackie Robinson. His name was Satchel Paige.
Qnut Nation said Biden referred to Paige as “the great Negro at the time.” Biden was obviously referring to the famed Negro League in baseball.
So much work to turn nothing into something, starting with Fox & Friends:
And it took off from there:
Ugh. Biden was referencing the fact that Satchel Paige played in what was then called the ‘Negro Leagues.’ But, ‘Joe Biden called Satchel Paige a negro!’ is the trending topic on MAGA twitter today. Your 2021 Republican Party. pic.twitter.com/b9g8XmSdo9

Joe Biden calling me a negro today but he’s going to be calling me Congresswoman-Elect Spicer this time next year when I go file impeachment papers on his ass.

Old me: Joe Biden was basically trying to say “Negro Leagues pitcher” & fumbled it because he’s kinda senile, so give it a rest. Current me: Joe Biden is a racist because thems the rules… I mean CNN had me on international TV as “pro-lynching” so… got it. https://t.co/ENpxXmemnw

Biden! You were at Arlington on Vets Day; perhaps you should talk about our vets who sacrificed everything; or those now on watch, 24/7 throughout the world so we all can sleep safely tonite. Instead you mumble something about the “Great Negro.” On behalf of all vets, Fuck off. https://t.co/2hdK0IZwkR

In the meantime, their orange-skinned idol is in the news for approving of people who wanted to hang his vice president, but okay.
