Biden tells supporters: ‘Poor kids are just as bright and talented as white kids’

Joe Biden, the 2020 Democratic front-runner, told his supporters in Iowa that “poor kids” were just as clever and able as “white kids.”

Speaking at a town hall for the Asian & Latino Coalition PAC in Iowa, the former vice president said, “The other thing we should do is we should challenge these students. We should challenge students in these schools that have advanced placement classes in these schools. 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, to some scattered applause, before correcting himself, “ — wealthy kids, black kids, Asian kids.”

Earlier Thursday, he made another fumble while speaking at the Iowa State Fair, saying: “We choose truth over facts.” Last week, Biden used the nonexistent word “expodentially” when speaking to reporters.

Watch the video:

As you can imagine, people had things to say about this on Twitter:

Is Biden even going to make it to Iowa?
