'Poor kids are just as bright and just as talented as white kids': Biden's bad day at the fair

Conservative Review

The following is an excerpt from Blaze Media’s daily Capitol Hill Brief email newsletter:

Out on the campaign trail, Democrats have descended upon the Iowa State Fair, but front-runner Joe Biden didn’t have the best day on the midway.

He was hounded about using the debunked “very fine people” smear about Charlottesville against President Donald Trump; he was also hounded about whether or not he would call the president a white supremacist. He didn’t; he just eventually settled on saying Trump “encourages” white supremacists.

But it didn’t stop there for the gaffe-prone former VP. He apparently slipped up and told a crowd that “we choose truth over facts.” And to top it all off after a day of campaigning among the rides and food stands, Biden went to a town hall event where he said, "Poor kids are just as bright and just as talented as white kids."

How much the last gaffe will hurt Biden — who has been running from his past statements against school busing and remarks on Senate segregationists — among Democrats remains to be seen. It’s safe to say, however, that this was probably not the performance his campaign was hoping for.
