Democrat President Joe Biden turned in another awful performance that likely blew his chances with the black vote in 2024.
Biden made another of his racist gaffes.
The flub comes as new polls show Biden getting crushed by President Donald Trump in a head-to-head matchup.
On Saturday night, Biden was delivering a speech to the Congressional Black Caucus.
At the event, rapper LL Cool J, whose birth name is James Todd Smith, and MC Lyte received the Phoenix Award for their musical contributions.
Biden was immediately off to a bad start when he first mangled LL Cool J’s name.
He then tried to fix the mistake but slipped up and referred to the rap legend as “boy,” before quickly correcting himself.
The tune of nervous laughter from a stunned crowd said it all.
“Two of the great artists of our time representing the groundbreaking legacy of hip hop in America, LL Jay Cool J, uhhh…” he said as the crowd laughed at the gaffe.
“By the way, that boy — that man’s got biceps bigger than my thighs,” Biden added.

Of course, Biden’s gaffe was barely mentioned by the corporate media.
If Trump made the same comment, it would get round-the-clock coverage.
According to The New York Post, this is not the first time Biden used the racial epithet to describe black men:
Earlier this year, Biden used the word while referring to Maryland’s first black governor, Wes Moore.
The president has frequently used “boy” to refer to younger politicians, though he took flak while on the campaign trail for using the term to describe his ability to work with segregationist senators.
Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ), then competing with Biden for the Democratic presidential nomination, rebuked him in a statement, saying:
“You don’t joke about calling black men ‘boys.’”
