Thursday during his meeting with Italian Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni in the Oval Office of the White House, President Joe Biden insulted multiple ethnic groups.
“I just want you to know, I was raised in a neighborhood where I felt self-conscious my name didn’t end in ‘O,’” Biden said.
“And I want you to know I’m the only non-Italian named the man of the year by the Italian Society,” he added.
The president added that while he was getting the award, he named all the Italian names of the families he grew up and said, “I was thinking about this … I deserve this award.”
As if his presence among Italians entitles him to a prize from them.
Biden continued, “I may be Irish, but I’m not stupid,” which sounded very much like a slur to the Irish.
“I married Dominic Giacoppa’s granddaughter. I want you to know that, OK? Be nice to me,” he said to the Italian prime minister, gesturing almost menacingly with his hands, channeling his inner Vito Corleone.
The entire conversation was peculiar and, with any other president, it would have likely escalated into an international incident with bigoted overtones. However, for Biden, this is par for the course.
All Italian last names don’t end in “O”
And not all Indian Americans work at 7/11.
Biden has never met a culture or race that he hasn’t stereotyped. https://t.co/KlMV2BNCu4

Heads of state appear to recognize that the president is analogous to the senile relative you visit at the nursing home — the one who makes racist quips and embraces the women a little too long, but you smile and shake your head because you know he’s not “all there.”
During Biden’s recent trip to the United Kingdom, King Charles III had to delicately steer him away from distractions.
