President Joe Biden refers to LL Cool J as 'Boy' at event of the Congressional Black Caucus

President Joe Biden (D) is receiving criticism for mispronouncing LL Cool J's name and using a derogatory term when referring to the rapper on Saturday at an awards dinner in Washington, DC.

According to the New York Post, Biden made his remarks during a speech at the Congressional Black Caucus event where LL Cool J and MC Lyte received Phoenix Awards, as Breitbart News reported.

“Two of the great artists of our time representing the groundbreaking legacy of hip hop in America, LL Jay Cool J, uhhh…” he stated, video footage of the moment shows.

The audience can be heard chuckling as Biden pauses before continuing,  “By the way that boy’s got — that man’s got biceps bigger than my thighs.”

Social media users responded swiftly to the clip, with one user writing, “The real Joe Biden. Old habits die hard,” while another said, “His true colors come out. Again.”

Breitbart News previously reported on Friday that the aging president mistakenly praised the Congressional Black Caucus while delivering remarks at a gala for the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute in the capital.

Biden made the error while harping on Sister Norma Pimental, the executive director of Catholic Charities of the Rio Grande Valley and award recipient.

“I know Sister Norma lives the lessons nuns taught me growing up. Lessons based on the Gospel of Matthew: feed the hungry, care for the sick, welcome strangers,” Biden stated.

“They echo what my dad taught me, and I mean this sincerely; my dad used to say, ‘Everyone, everyone is entitled to be treated with dignity and respect.’ The Congressional Black Caucus embodies all those values,” Biden said, identifying the wrong group completely.

Oddly, Biden did not pause to correct his statement but opted to continue without addressing it: “Just think of the work we’ve done together on civil rights, labor rights, healthcare, education,” Biden continued.

“Folks, we’ve fundamentally changed the direction of our economy to grow it from the middle out and the bottom up.”

According to Breitbart News, a recent CNN poll found that nearly half of Democrats and independents leaning Democrat are concerned about Biden's age.

The majority are concerned that his age of 80 affects his physical and mental competence, the news source reported.
