It’s time once again to play America’s favorite national pastime – What if Donald Trump did this?
President Biden on Wednesday referred to Wes Moore, Maryland’s first black governor, as a “boy.”
His comment came during opening remarks to IBEW union workers in Lanham, Maryland.
“You got a hell of a new governor in Wes Moore, I tell ya,” Biden said, clapping along to the audience. “He’s the real deal, and the boy looked like he could still play. He got some guns on him.”
Moore played wide receiver for Johns Hopkins University.

Cory Booker Explains Biden’s Use of the Word ‘Boy’ is ‘Dehumanizing’
To be clear, President Biden often uses the phrase “boy” when referring to people in speeches that are white as well.
Fox News points out that the President spoke highly of Senator Chris Coons (D-DE) last October, telling those in attendance that the lawmaker also has a divinity degree.
“The boy can preach,” he declared.
And while the phrase is typically mundane, when directed towards a black individual in certain contexts, it can be viewed as a racially derogatory term.
He did the same thing to senior adviser Cedric Richmond two years ago.

Can you imagine if Trump said something along those lines? No matter the intent? Or any Republican for that matter.
Senator Cory Booker has, in the past, criticized President Biden for his use of the word.
In 2019, Cory Booker slammed Biden for using the word “boy”

“As a black man in America, I know the deeply harmful and hurtful usage of the word boy and how it was used to dehumanize and degrade,” Booker said after Biden used the term in remarks about pro-segregation Senators James O. Eastland and Herman Talmadge.

RELATED: Joe Biden’s 12 Greatest Gaffes
Biden’s History of Racially Charged Rhetoric
In a vacuum, President Biden’s comments about Wes Moore do not seem malicious or even all that controversial. That said, he does have a history of making statements that would sink other politicians, if not for the media constantly referring to them as harmless gaffes.
Early on in his Senate career, Biden worried that de-segregation would cause his children to grow up “in a racial jungle.”
The President very famously described Barack Obama in patronizing terms, calling him “the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy.”

President Biden also once bragged about receiving an award from George Wallace, said Delaware was on the South’s side in the Civil War, and touted that Delaware was a “slave state” as recently as 2006.
Then there was that time he complained that the local 7-11 is full of people with Indian accents.
The media barely mentions them, but Joe Biden has a long history of racist comments.

And of course, if you didn’t vote for him, then you “ain’t black.”

White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre recently claimed despite his many verbal missteps and controversial comments, President Biden is still “the best communicator that we have in the White House.”
If that’s true, the White House has a very serious problem on their hands.

Biden is so old that everybody looks like a “boy” to him.
While working with ACTUAL RACIST SEGREGATIONIST KENNETH EASTLAND to keep blacks out of white schools Biden famously said that he “didn’t want his kids growing up in a racial jungle”. This is significant because the historical white wash of these remarks , pun intended, is that he was somehow “for” blacks going to white schools but was “simply” against “forced busing” . Those “racial jungle” comments suggest he was opposed to the fact of integrated busing rather than the “method”.
Biden refused to send FEMA to the chemical spill in Palestine OH because the people in Paletine OH benefit from white privilege and then Sent 2 weeks later under pressure. There is only one race the human race. Let’s get away from implementing equity and get back to treating everyone equally. Equality not equity.
He’s about as worthless as 2 tits on a bull.
Why wouldn’t he refer to the black Governor as a “boy”. Biden has been a steadfast racist for 48 years. All racist legislation has the feeble one’s name all over it. You can deny you are a racist, but if you are truly a racist, racist remarks just fall out of their mouth. He called black children jungle kids and demanded his children would not attend school with kids from the jungle!! He’s the biggest racist in DC! Even cried like a baby when he eulogized Mr Byrd, the Grand Wizard of the KKK when he passed away! Biden could barely speak words he was so broken hearted!! A racist he is and a racist he will always be. I pray he has that last final stroke and goes to hell sooner than later. He’s a reprobate!
So Joe back to calling black men “BOY”?
I have noticed Democrats, especially politicians, can speak that way and nothing happens. Funny, that.
Biden makes a mess of everything!
Ain’t that the truth!
