HotNewHipHop.com Says Biden In Hot Water For His Gaffe About Going To ‘The Hood’
Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden continues to experience fallout from his recent gaffe about traveling to “the hood” to help women Learn to Code.
HotNewHipHop.com reports: “Joe Biden’s found himself in some hot water, once again…Most recently, his comments about his trek to the “hood” have left many wondering just how out of touch he actually is. Joe Biden’s looking to win over the votes of the African-American community but as a politician, referring to inner-city communities as “the hood” is probably not the best way to go about it. During a stop on his campaign trail in Iowa, the former vice president spoke about the efforts to evolve the economy in cities such as Detroit which is when he brought up how he went to the hood to teach women of color how to code.”
Here is Biden’s full quote: “Through a program, we had through community colleges, we said look, put together a program for us where we could teach people how to code. We went out, literally into the hood, and they found, turns out, 54 [people], they happened to be all women, the vast majority were women of color, no more than a high school degree, aged 25-54, and a third of them only had GEDs.”
Biden’s campaign is off to a sluggish start marked by gaffes and tainted by Barack Obama’s non-endorsement of him. Biden claimed on “The View” that he asked Obama not to endorse him to make it look like Biden is not merely the Obama candidate, because they are supposedly such good friends, but that explanation was widely mocked.

Biden cancelled his planned presidential campaign announcement in Charlottesville, Virginia due to liberal activist pressure, and instead made a video announcement.
The cancellation of his planned kick-off due to pressure from the Left spells bad voodoo for Biden, who has been pilloried from all sides after multiple women accused him of sexual misconduct in the form of inappropriate and unsolicited touching, sniffing, and/or kissing.
“Aides to Biden had briefed journalists about the plan for Wednesday, which liberal activist groups in Charlottesville told the Washington Examiner had prompted opposition, with some residents unhappy about the scene a tragedy the city would prefer to forget being used as a campaign launch backdrop,” the Washington Examiner‘s Joseph Simonson reported.
Biden has mounting problems with the Left, and with women everywhere.
Biden recently agreed to listen respectfully to accuser and candidate Lucy Flores, who alleges that Biden came up from behind her and sniffed her hair and kissed her without her consent. This incident occurred backstage at a political rally with actress Eva Longoria.
“In my many years on the campaign trail and in public life, I have offered countless handshakes, hugs, expressions of affection, support and comfort. And not once – never – did I believe I acted inappropriately. If it is suggested I did so, I will listen respectfully. But it was never my intention,” Biden said.
Biden is under fire for working with his daughter-in-law Kathleen’s DC Volunteer Lawyers Project, which covered up sexual misconduct with a teenage boy by one of their representatives in the DC Superior Court bathroom.
