Did Joe Biden use the n-word? President fumbles during speech, Internet says 'y'all thought Trump was bad'
At the 15:33 mark of his speech to the Virtual Munich Security Conference, the president could be heard mumbling a word that could be mistaken for the racial slur
Many on the Internet noted that when President Joe Biden was reading a speech to the Virtual Munich Security Conference, he might have reportedly slipped and used what could be mistaken for the N-word.
In the 18-minute, 22-second-long video, at the 15:33 mark, users could hear what seemed like some mumbling that could be mistaken for the racial slur. "Look, the range of challenges Europe and the United States must take on together is broad and complex. I am either to hear, I’m eager to hear. (pause) ****** to hear, next from my good friends, and outstanding leaders, such as Merkel about her thoughts on the way forward together…" The closed-captioning also caught Biden’s slip up.

Biden also said other things in the speech at the annual international policy gathering of the MSC, including, "We have to push back against the Chinese government’s abuses and coercion that undercut the foundations of the international economic system," adding, "Everyone must play by the same rules."
However, social media users couldn't help but draw attention to the alleged use of the n-word. "Did sleepy Joe drop the 'N' bomb randomly in his speech?? did anyone else catch that?" one user commented under the video on YouTube. "He slipped the N word on black history month!" another user wrote.
"Did...did he just say the "N" word? He did...ok...and no one is concerned about him just randomly blurting out racist remarks?" one asked. ""Ni*****d here next' lmfao where's the outrage," another commented.
And so, many comments under the video of the president's debut before an international audience since taking office called him out for the alleged use of the word. Even on Twitter, people were raging.
"Joe Biden really dropping the n word and no one bats an eye. What the fuck," one tweeted. "so since joe biden said the N word on air can we cancel him?" a social media user asked. "Joe Biden could call say the N Word in the Middle of 5th Avenue and get away with it," another user commented.

Many users were also offended by a list of Biden's latest statements. "Joe Biden said 'poor kids and white kids', he said Black people and Hispanics don't know how to use the internet, now he says the N word because he is senile... America is so much better than electing a joke of a person like this."

During the CNN town hall with Anderson Cooper on February 17, 2021, Biden said, “Not everybody in the community–in the Hispanic and the African American community, particularly in rural areas that are distant and/or inner-city districts–know how to use–know how to get online to determine how to get in line for that Covid-19 vaccination at the Walgreens or at the particular store.”
People couldn't help but compare it with a previous instance of former President Donald Trump. "Remember when people got on Trump because they thought he said 'bigly'? I wonder what they think of THIS gem," one commented on the video. "Don’t worry guys, Joe Biden saying the N word was just a mental typo Imagine if Trump had this sort of misspeak," user tweeted. "Y’all thought Trump was bad, Joe Biden out here saying the 'N Word' in his speech," another tweeted.

During the first presidential debate in 2016, the then-Republican candidate Trump used the word "bigly" in his debate against Hilary Clinton. "I'm going to cut taxes bigly, and you're going to raise taxes bigly," he had said at the time. On social media, he became the butt of jokes for use of the adverb, which, as it turns out, is an actual word.
"Trump never once got caught in 4K using the N word but your messiah Joe Biden just did... this is the man y’all cut off your own family members and friends for LOL," a user finally mocked Biden.

But that could be debated. Trump's niece Mary Trump had gone on record to reportedly say that she had heard the president use racist or anti-Semitic slurs on MSNBC's 'The Rachel Maddow Show'. "I don’t think that should surprise anybody, given how virulently racist he is today," she had reportedly said,
