Democrat presidential candidate and former Vice President Joe Biden may have already made his first campaign gaffe within hours of its launch, telling a reporter that his message to the world is that America used to be “straight.”
Biden launched his presidential campaign early this morning with a video, and has already been subject to increased scrutiny for over the past few weeks after multiple women came forward alleging he had inappropriate physical contact with them that made them feel uncomfortable.
Now, Biden may have already made his first campaign gaffe, as he told a reporter that under Biden, the country will return to how it used to be: “straight.”
The gaffe came as Biden was asked by a reporter, “Do you have a message for the rest of the world?”
“Yes, America is coming back like we used to be,” replied Biden. “Ethical, straight, telling the truth.”
Is this the first Biden gaffe?

Naturally, Biden meant his response to be a dig against President Donald J. Trump, who apparently is not “ethical” or “straight” in his view.
However, in today’s sensitive political environment, the fact that Biden would describe honesty as “straight” may make him unpopular with the same members of the LGBT community the Democrats are desperately courting for votes.
In the battleground state of New Hampshire, Biden is currently tied with the openly gay Mayor Pete Buttigieg for second place, with Sen. Bernie Sanders in the lead by several points.
Buttigieg, who launched his presidential campaign by passionately kissing his husband Chasten, has already been subject to adulation from far-left media outlets for his sexual preference.
The Daily Beast recently published an article slamming those who are “discounting (Buttigieg’s) sexual preference,” suggesting that those who do so are diminishing the struggles faced by the LGBT community.
New York Young Republicans Call for Order After Chaos at the Capitol
Order Must be Restored
On January 6, 2020 the New York Young Republican Club issued a statement calling for an instant restoration of law and order after protests escalated at the United States Capitol.
The protests were originally in support of President Donald Trump and his efforts to challenge the results of an election marked by massive irregularities. Several protesters pushed the envelope by breaking into the Capitol and interrupting the Senate and House of Representatives proceedings.
The Republican organization issued the following statement on the incident:
Today, what we see at the United States Capitol the result of American elites permitting general malaise to foment tangible destruction. We unequivocally condemn the interruption of Senate and House of Representatives proceedings. Anyone who breached the Capitol should be arrested and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law because destruction and vandalism of property cannot be permitted by any actor.
We are the party of Law and Order, and we expect citizens all to operate in accordance with these standards.
U.S. policymakers will have to take a long hard look in the mirror. The lack of leadership has created a vicious cycle of radicalization that is increasingly getting out of control. Such developments could put America’s political system on the ropes if not addressed properly.
On the Republican side, there must be a clean break during the 2022 primaries, where the overwhelming majority of incumbents should face nationalist challengers. The current leadership has clearly failed and must be replaced.
