Response to George II (Reply #10)

11. Because Biden said "if you were at was a fancy Washington restaurant" in his story.

 

Didn't you read what he said?

"If you were at a fancy restaurant in Washington five or six years ago, and a gay or lesbian waiter came up, or a transgender, spoke with a lisp...and someone made fun of that person, no one would've said anything. Not a joke. I want you to think about this."

And yes, when someone mentions fancy Washington restaurants, like Biden did in his story, I do think of lobbyists and Politicians.

It sounds like he is relaying a personal story, that he actually heard that himself in a fancy Washington restaurant he was dining at.

Did he over hear that from another table, or did someone at his own table make that comment?

If Biden did NOT hear this remark himself in a fancy Washington restaurant, he should have made that more clear.

And on re-reading what Biden said in his story, what's with this "spoke with a lisp" stuff?!?

Talk about perpetuating anti-gay stereotypes.



If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Joe Biden
