WATCH: Bill de Blasio Dances to R. Kelly Song at South Carolina Church

It may sound like an Onion headline, but the video evidence doesn’t lie.

New York City mayor and potential 2020 Democratic Party presidential candidate Bill de Blasio awkwardly danced along to an R. Kelly tune at a South Carolina church on Sunday.

“I wonder if the @NYCMayor realizes who sings this song,” said local reporter Courtney Gross on Twitter, attaching a video of de Blasio’s dance.

The mayor was grooving – if one can rightfully call it that – to “I Believe I Can Fly,” as led by the church choir and pastor. Some women in the congregation sat, despite the pastor’s encouragement to stand up and dance along.

Perhaps none of them understood the cultural significance of the song at this given moment in time. R. Kelly was arrested for 10 counts of felony aggravated criminal sex abuse at the end of February. The charges stem from criminal complaints filed by four women who allege that Kelly sexually abused them from 1998 to 2010. The indictment charges Kelly with three counts of sexual abuse of girls older than 13, but younger than 17.

The multiplatinum recording artist faces scrutiny in three other criminal investigations – a second investigation in Chicago, one in Atlanta, and one in New York City. CNN also confirmed that it has seen a sex tape that Kelly made with an underage girl.

Kelly was acquitted in 2008 after going to trial for allegedly having sex with and urinating on a 13-year-old girl.

With all that in mind, watch de Blasio flail around Kelly’s hit tune:

Joe Biden Admits He Wasn’t “Arrested” In South Africa After Exaggerated Claims

Biden said he was arrested trying to visit Nelson Mandela.

Joe Biden is walking back an exaggerated campaign talking point, after being questioned on his claims of being ‘arrested’ in apartheid-era South Africa trying to visit Nelson Mandela in prison.

Biden all but admitted his claims of being arrested were false in an interview on CNN Friday.

He’s claimed that he was “arrested” in several South Carolina campaign speeches trying to visit the South African political leader.

This day 30 years ago, Nelson Mandela walked out of prison and entered into discussions about apartheid. I had the great honor of meeting him. I had the great honor of being arrested with our UN ambassador on the streets of Soweto trying to get to see him on (Robben) Island,” Biden claimed at a Columbia campaign event earlier this month. He’s repeated the claims two times since then.

Biden admitted to CNN’s Joe Berman that he was merely stopped by customs police at the airport for a short period of time when arriving in the country with the Congressional Black Caucus for a visit in the 1970’s.

His claims of being arrested during a direct attempt to visit Mandela are equally dubious, considering he was merely stopped in the city of Soweto. Soweto is hundreds of miles away from Cape Town’s Robben Island, where Mandela was imprisoned for decades by the apartheid-era government.

For what it’s worth, the western political leaders such as Joe Biden who were acutely interested in South Africa during the Apartheid era of political repression have largely forgotten about the country and its declining standard of living since then.
