So, Joe Biden’s at it again, huh?
Joe Biden just said that Latinos have diversity of thought, unlike Black Americans…
This is disgusting!pic.twitter.com/CxzJKkabwY

But if you’re concerned that Biden has once again made a racist gaffe, allow the Washington Post Fact Checker’s Glenn Kessler to set the record straight:
If you listen to the clip, he didn’t actually say this. https://t.co/sU7XeCuHim

Let’s see … here’s what Joe Biden said, verbatim:
“What you all know, but most people don’t know, unlike the African American community, with notable exceptions, the Latino community is an incredibly diverse community, with incredibly different attitudes about different things”?
He didn’t say “diversity of thought” anywhere, you guys. He said “incredibly different attitudes about different things.” Which is totally different!
So what did he really say, Glenn? https://t.co/5mVHcKbV91

I mean, I listened to it myself. He did say pretty much what the tweet says he said. I'm curious what *you think* he said?

Inquiring minds wanna know.
Here is Joe Biden’s full quote from this clip: “What you all know, but most people don’t know: unlike the African American community — with notable exceptions — the Latino community is an incredibly diverse community with incredibly different attitudes about different things.” https://t.co/b3NA1Mk1Wu

What does the entire segment say? What does he say before and after this clip?

Maybe Glenn’s just been working too hard.
I know you guys are really burning the midnight oil keeping Biden's campaign afloat but this may be a little too desperate of a claim. Take a break. https://t.co/IpKU04MjcG
