Like many other times with Joe Biden, the light is on and no one is home. The latest Biden gaffe is a particularly strange one.
This particular gaffe deals with race as Biden makes an awkward point about why he was able to stay "sequestered" in his home.
"They're saying, 'Jeez, the reason I was able to stay sequestered in my home is because some Black woman was able to stack the grocery shelf,'" Biden says in the clip.
"And they say, 'Well, why in the hell would you say that Biden? You just talked about all these difficulties.' Well, I’ll tell you why. Because the American public, the blinders have been taken off," Biden said to the roundtable attendees. "They’ve all of a sudden seen a hell of a lot clearer. They’re saying, 'Jeeze, the reason I was able to stay sequestered in my home is because some Black woman was able to stack the grocery shelf. Or a young Hispanic is out there, these dreamers are out there, 60,000 of them acting as first responders and nurses and docs.' Or all of a sudden people are realizing, 'My Lord, these people have done so much. Not just Black, White, across the board, have done so much for me. We can do this. We can get things done.' And I think they’re ready."

Political commentator Dave Rubin tied it to Biden's "you ain't black" gaffe in a tweet:
You ain’t black if you ain’t stocking a grocery shelf for Joe Biden. https://t.co/IyIwm9TmbC

Imagine the uproar if President Trump said something like that.
Close your eyes. Picture Trump saying this. Now picture the media reaction. Enjoy your evening! https://t.co/bs1bnhNamj

This is what happens when you stay angry for four years instead of finding a good presidential candidate.
