President Joe Biden suggested he was raised in a Puerto Rican community, adding the qualifier “politically” to the end of his statement – leading many viewers scratching their heads as to the true meaning of his assertation.
Biden was delivering an address to a hurricane-impacted community in Puerto Rico on Monday. Trying to connect with the people on the ground, Biden made this statement:
“I uh, was sort of raised in the Puerto Rican community at home, politically. So we came here for a long time, both for business and pleasure…”
Many have tried to dissect what he meant. Defenders of the president say he meant to say he spent a lot of time in Puerto Rico as a child. Others say he was simply pandering to the people of Puerto Rico by stretching the truth and saying he was raised Puerto Rican.
Most are confused by what he means by “politically”. Did Biden garner political influence by living in a Puerto Rican community? What community did he live in? Many questions remain open as to what Biden meant.
It is not uncommon for the 46th president to misspeak in speeches and at public events. Recently, Biden forgot U.S. Representative Jackie Walorski had died tragically and asked in the middle of a speech, “where’s Jackie?” Biden was also caught saying “God bless you all and may God PRECKT our troops” near the end of a recent Laborfest speech.
