BREAKING NEWS – Washington, D.C. – President Biden called a Black adviser “boy” during a Federal Emergency Management Administration (FEMA) briefing.

The president used the term while introducing his senior adviser Cedric Richmond, a former Louisiana congressman.

“I’m here with my senior adviser and boy who knows Louisiana very, very well and New Orleans, Cedric Richmond,” Biden said at a press briefing with FEMA after Hurricane Ida rocked Louisiana.

Biden later attempted to defuse the controversy. “People are always trying to find racism where it doesn’t exist,” he began. “I have the utmost respect for Richmond because he started out with nothing, and I think he put himself through law school while working nights and weekends at several plantations.”
