‘Do you expect us to believe you over our own ears?’
Washington Post fact-checker Glenn Kessler got roasted Friday for insisting Joe Biden didn’t say what he said.
Biden, in a video interview Thursday with Yahoo News, essentially said the black community lacks diversity of thought.
“Unlike the African American community, with notable exceptions, the Latino community is an incredibly diverse community with incredibly different attitudes about different things,” said the presumptive Democratic nominee.
That sounded straightforward to the Bongino Report, which asked Kessler, “Do you expect us to believe you over our own ears?”
Here’s the Biden remark that started it all:

Fox News said the Biden comment “was widely considered an inadvertent dig at the African American community.”
Biden later said he didn’t mean to suggest “the African American community is a monolith.”
But David Marcus at the Federalist wondered, “How long can the media cover for Biden’s racial gaffes?”
“Joe Biden has stepped on another racial landmine. As the country is torn apart by ethnic strife, the former vice president continues to frustrate his campaign and his loyal supporters in the corporate media by saying goofy things about black people that at least border on abject racism,” he wrote.
