DES MOINES, Iowa Joe Biden Wednesday bragged about time he spent in the "hood," a place where he said he found "women of color" he helped train to do computer coding.
Speaking at a rally, the former vice president elaborated on how U.S. workers need to receive better education to prepare themselves for a changing economy, and used a visit to Detroit, Mich., to describe how businesses went to local organizations that help train minorities various coding and technical abilities.
Through a program we had through community colleges, we can teach people how to code," Biden said. "We went out, literally into the hood, and they found, turns out, 54 [people], they happened to be all women, the vast majority were women of color, no more than a high school degree, aged 25-54, and a third of them only had GEDs.
The use of hood drew nervous laughter from some Democrats in the audience. One person let out a yikes, but later cheered for Biden at the end of his anecdote.
Words like ghetto, hood, and thug have come under scrutiny recently by activists for supposedly having a loaded meaning. In the past, Biden has found himself in hot water for racially insensitive language and opposing efforts to integrate the nations schools.
In 2007, during his last White House run, Biden described then-Sen. Barack Obama as the first mainstream African American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy. During his time in the Senate, Biden opposed a federal busing program to help desegregate schools.
I think the concept of busing that we are going to integrate people so that they all have the same access and they learn to grow up with one another and all the rest, is a rejection of the whole movement of black pride, Biden said at the time.
Biden has previously seemed to try to ingratiate himself with black voters in awkward ways.
I still walk down the street in the black side of town, he told the Washington Post in 1975. Mousey and Chops and all the boys at 13th, and I can walk in those pool halls, and quite frankly dont know another white man involved in Delaware politics who can do that kind of thing.
More recently, as vice president to Barack Obama during the 2012 reelection campaign, Biden told an audience that included many African Americans that Obama's opponent, Mitt Romney, will "put you all back in chains."
People were banned on twitter a while back for telling journalists learn to code.
Now that Art Bell has passed, Joe Biden needs to do the midnight to 5:00am gig. Joe could entertain long haul drivers from coast to coast.
More pedophile bs.
All the women who passed the hair smell test were taught to code.
Now that Art Bell has passed, Joe Biden needs to do the midnight to 5:00am gig.

Get a bigger audience than he does now...
I wouldn’t expect to see them receiving many phone calls after the first couple of days.
BEST part of your ‘scenario’ is that maybe, just maybe, Biden will move to that cave and take BO and his ilk with him.
THEN we can blow up the cave as one of those idiots would just have to reveal its secret location.
“Oh stewardess. I speak jive”
Not only were many of the points he tried to make fallacious, he stumbled and bumbled with every sentence. Brain deterioration is evident.
That bunghole has never spent any time outside of his protected political bubble.
What a liar. Oh wait, he is a dem.
Biden is a laugh a minute. I don’t think the media is going to be able to hide his idiocy and prop him up this time around.
Biden was protected by the media. He was under the Obama umbrella.
Hes used to the MSM being able to control the narrative. But now these slips and stupidity can be shared on social media.
Biden really thinks he is special.
I recall his bragging about holding up the Amtrak train when he was running late. PFFFt to those train riders who wanted to get to work on time.
And he thought that was funny.
A real man of the people.
How did we ever get to this point, where the majority of our elected government are this pathetic and unqualified? Seriously. If you were trying to specifically choose the worst people to hold public office, and you really tried hard, it would be difficult to come up with a group of people more pathetically unqualified, untrustworthy, untalented, and uncreative as those we have now - particularly the Democrats.
Yo, jez chillun wid da homeyz, nome sayin'..? Keepin' it REAL, yo..!
So “creepy Uncle Joe” is really an Uncle Tom.
Were they clean and articulate?
If the Dems put up an old white man theyre dead. If the put up anyone from the rest of the asshats theyre dead. They are basically bankrupt. Its Trumps to lose.
