“I’m The First Black Woman” President: Joe Biden

by | Jul 7, 2024 | Opinion

In a world where words matter, and every utterance by a public figure is scrutinized down to the syllable, President Joe Biden has once again gifted us with a nugget of verbal gold. In his latest attempt to reassure voters that he’s still got the chops to lead this great nation, he made a gaffe that can only be described as classic Biden. During an interview on Philadelphia’s WURD black radio station, Biden boldly declared himself the “first black woman to serve with a black president.” That’s right, you heard it correctly – Biden, the 81-year-old white male president, morphed into the first black woman in the blink of an eye.

This gaffe is part of Biden’s Independence Day media blitz, clearly an effort to mop up the mess left by his train-wreck debate performance the week before. It was a verbal trip-up that no doubt left listeners scratching their heads and wondering if they had somehow tuned into a satire show instead of a serious interview.

Let’s set the scene: Biden is chatting with host Andrea Lawful-Sanders, trying to recount his time as vice president under Barack Obama and his decision to choose Kamala Harris as his vice president. In what can only be described as a blender of words and identity politics, Biden proclaimed, “By the way, I’m proud to be, as I said, the first vice president, first black woman, to serve with a black president.” Cue the collective facepalm of the nation.

Elsewhere in the interview, Biden patted himself on the back for appointing Ketanji Brown Jackson to the Supreme Court, the first black woman to hold that position, and for picking Kamala Harris as his VP. It’s almost as if he’s trying to collect a set of diversity trophies. At one point, he bizarrely claimed he was the “first president that got elected statewide in the state of Delaware, when I was a kid.” Now, unless Biden discovered the secret to time travel, this statement is as nonsensical as it sounds.

And then there was Biden’s attempt to empathize with the black struggle for representation. He compared it to his own experience as a Catholic thinking he couldn’t be president before John F. Kennedy’s election. “I looked at John Kennedy and said, ‘Well, he — John — he got elected. Why can’t I get elected?’” Biden mused. Because nothing says “I understand your struggle” quite like comparing religious affiliation with systemic racial discrimination.

Despite the mounting evidence of Biden’s verbal slip-ups, Ammar Moussa, a spokesperson for Biden’s re-election campaign, was quick to defend the president. Moussa fired off a tweet calling the media’s focus on Biden’s gaffes “absurd.” He insisted that the president’s meaning was clear and that this pattern of speech has been “perfectly normal” for Biden throughout his career. Ah yes, because who among us hasn’t accidentally identified as a different race and gender in a public forum?

Biden’s latest interview was a whirlwind tour of verbal missteps, providing ample fodder for late-night comedians and political commentators alike. It’s a reminder that in politics, as in life, sometimes it’s not just what you say but how you say it – and sometimes, how you say it can be utterly hilarious. So here’s to you, President Biden, for keeping us entertained with your unique brand of verbal acrobatics. We can hardly wait for the next episode.
