Joe Biden: ‘poor kids’ are ‘just as talented as white kids’

Joe Biden is in hot water again for yet another of his famous slip-ups when speaking. This time, the former Vice President majorly misspoke when addressing the Iowa Asian and Latino Coalition about education.

“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, then adding, “Wealthy kids. Black kids. Asian kids. No, I really mean it. But think how we think about it.”

So far, Biden hasn’t walked back the comments but I’m sure a correction/apology is coming soon.
