It looks like Rihanna isn’t here for former Vice President Joe Biden’s recent “poor kids” comments at an Iowa event.
In front of hundreds at the presidential forum with the Asian and Latino Coalition, Biden said: “We have this notion that somehow if you’re poor, you cannot do it. Poor kids are just as bright and just as talented as white kids.”
Awkwardly, Biden tried to recover from the Freudian slip by continuing, “Wealthy kids. Black kids. Asian kids. No, I really mean it. But think how we think about it.”
The FENTY Beauty creator took to Instagram and rightfully dragged Biden for his remarks.
“Whoa! And he’s convinced he said something great here!” Rihanna said. “Even when they fake it, the truth about how they feel about us is blatant!”
Fed up with the political landscape and the current administration, Rihanna recently tore into Trump for his negligent stance following three mass shootings in Dayton, El Paso and Gilroy almost two weeks ago.
“Um…Donald, you spelt ‘terrorism’ wrong!” she said on Instagram. “Your country had 2 terrorist attacks back to back hours apart leaving almost 30 innocent people dead.”
Biden has been on the defensive throughout his 2020 presidential campaign, particularly after his “Go easy on me, kid” comments to fellow presidential hopeful Kamala Harris. His foot-in-mouth tendencies even stretch back to May when he boasted to an Iowa audience about going to "the hood" to find women to participate in coding skill-building programs.
Somebody help Biden get his verbal snafus under control.
