Lets play ‘Political Jeopardy!’ Big fun!!
I’ll take the category “Political Faux Pas” for $500, and – just my luck, its the ‘Daily Double’!
The answer is:
In 2006, he told an Indian-American supporter that “you cannot go to a 7-Eleven or a Dunkin’ Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent. I’m not joking.”
This person then decided to practice that accent on the campaign trail in 2012. In a speech criticizing Mitt Romney for outsourcing, he donned an Indian accent to mock the notion of Indians trying to speak English. “How many times you get the call, ‘I like to talk to you about your … credit card” he said, abandoning the mock accent. “It’s a little over done.”
In January, 2007, he described his now boss this way: “I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy. I mean, that’s a storybook, man.”
In August of 2012, he told a crowd in Danville, Virginia “They’re going to put y’all back in chains.” He then went on and told the crowd that if they get out the vote, “we can win North Carolina again.” Unfortunately, Danville is close to the North Carolina border, but it is, in fact, in Virginia.
BUZZZ! – Who is “Joe Biden“?
Looks like I’ll be a contender in the final round.
