Joe Biden Mistakes Words of Communist Dictator for Ancient Chinese Proverb

Another day, another disastrous gaffe from Joe Biden.

There has been plenty of rightful concern over the mental acuity remaining between the ears of former Vice President Joe Biden during the 2020 election cycle, and this week was no different.

Biden, who has secured the presumptive nominee spot for the Democrats, has historically been a gaffe-prone public speaker who has skated by on intent and party affiliation for decades on The Beltway.  The septuagenarian took this gibberish to the next level this year, however, adding a layer of unkempt temper to the mix.

At one town hall, Biden referred to an attendee as both “fat” and “a damn liar” before days later calling a female voter a “lying, dog-faced pony soldier”.  Then, just a few weeks after that, Biden told a Detroit factory worker that he was “full of [expletive]”.

Many have wondered how this sort of absent-mindedness would fare in international diplomatic circles, and rightly so.  As Americans we are facing some fairly serious threats from the likes of China, Russia, and beyond, and the figurehead of the US government will need to remain poised and well-spoken in order to prevent any launch countdowns from commencing.

Unfortunately for Biden, his latest mixup is just another example of the carelessness of his words.

Biden held a digital fundraiser featuring former President Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett. According to The Atlantic’s Edward-Isaac Dovere, the former vice president “cited an old Chinese proverb” while discussing economic relief for women during a Q&A session.

“We’ve got to get real economic relief into women’s hands now,” Biden reportedly said, later saying that “women hold up half the sky.”

But that was not an “old Chinese proverb”.

The saying “women hold up half the sky,” however, is not a proverb but a famous proclamation made by Mao [Zedong] roughly 70 years ago, when he proclaimed gender equality at the beginning of his rule.

Chairman Mao was a notorious dictator with plenty of blood on his hands, and not exactly the sort of leader whose quotes make for acceptable political drivel.

Maybe someone can slip Sleepy Joe a fortune cookie the next time he wants to spout some “Chinese proverbs”.
