Another day, another Joe Biden gaffe.
The 2020 Democratic presidential candidate added another incident to his growing list of misstatements and verbal flubs by making a strange comment about the “xenophobic” people of Japan and women in the workforce.
Speaking to supporters in Spartanburg, South Carolina on Wednesday, Biden brought up the “economic laws of physics” as he turned to the example of Japan where he said the women remain in the workforce because of the nation’s opposition to having foreign workers.
“You cannot succeed as a country if you leave more than half of your brainpower on the sidelines,” he said. “Not a joke, not a joke.”
