Jen Psaki has a big job cleaning up for Joe Biden.
It’s gotten worse with the continued decline of Biden’s mental faculties, as some of his old habits are starting to surface.
And Jen Psaki gulped hard when she saw Joe Biden shouting this derogatory term on camera.
Joe Biden recently delivered a Veteran’s Day speech at Arlington National Cemetery where he attempted to tell a joke to honor Secretary of State Anthony Blinken’s father, Donald Blinken, for his service in the armed forces.
Biden began by mentioning Satchel Paige, a great baseball pitcher who pitched in the Negro Leagues and did not sign with a Major League team until he was 41 years old.
Paige, who pitched in the Major Leagues until he was 53, frequently joked around with reporters about his old age.
But when attempting to recount one of Paige’s famous quips, Biden referred to him as a “Negro” – a racially insensitive term that hasn’t been used for decades.
“I know you’re a little younger than I am,” Biden stated. “I’ve adopted the attitude of the great negro at the time, pitcher in the Negro Leagues who went on to become a great pitcher in the pro’s in Major League Baseball after Jackie Robinson. His name was Satchel Paige.”

Joe Biden stumbling through trying to tell a joke was only the latest sign of his cognitive decline.
This is why Biden’s handlers limit his public appearances and only allow him to take scripted questions from pre-selected reporters.
They know his mental faculties are declining.
As a previous POLITICO article reported, anonymous Biden aides are so afraid of what Biden will do or say that they turn off the TV when he speaks.
And Joe Biden going off script and using the racist word “negro” showed exactly why his handlers limit his public appearances and refuse to watch out of fear Biden will veer off the script.
