Imagine if Trump did this? Biden refers to Masters winner, 29, as “Japanese boy” to prime minister


The following article contains editorial content written by a retired police chief and current staff writer for Law Enforcement Today.

WASHINGTON, DC- Oh, Joe. The gaffe master struck again this past Friday while hosting Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga at the White House.

After first engaging in what many perceived as a presidential snub of Suga by not greeting him and sending Kamala Harris instead, Biden then added injury to insult with his later comments, multiple outlets reported, including the Washington Times.

Biden was trying to show some grace by noting that the Japanese must be understandably proud of their country in light of the Masters win by Hideki Matsuyama. Well that and they also have a leader who knows where he is and what day of the week it is. But we digress.

“You’ve got a Japanese boy coming over here and winning the Masters,” said the increasingly cognitively challenged Biden. “He won the green jacket…the first Japanese player to take home that green jacket.”

Hey, it’s a small win…at least Biden got the color right.

Matsuyama, not exactly a boy at age 29, won the tournament, the PGA tour’s most prestigious, at Georgia’s Augusta National Golf Club last Sunday.

“And Matsuyama was the first Japanese player to take home that green jacket at the Masters tournament this week. So let me say congratulations to Japan as well on that feat.”

Not surprisingly, Biden’s description of the 29-year-old Matsuyama as a “boy” drew a fair amount of criticism online.

“Hideki Matsuyama is 29. Joe Biden just called him a ‘Japanese boy.’ To the Japan PM’s face.”

Yet another:

“Did Biden just use the term ‘Japanese boy’ to describe a grown ass man? Oof.”

During their meeting, where it is assumed Biden remained awake, he and the prime minister spoke about increasing tensions with Japan, the New York Post reported as well as the perceived increase in anti-Asian prejudice in the United States, reporters were told in the Rose Garden.

The Biden administration, off to a rocky start given the turmoil at the border and nightly riots in cities across the US also drew sharp criticism previously when senior White House adviser Jen O’Malley Dillon blew off concerns from Senate Democrats about the lack of prominent Asian American nominees.

At that time, leftist loon Sen. Tammy Duckworth (D-Ill.) promised to block Biden’s other cabinet nominees, applying a litmus test of only voting to approve minorities to upcoming positions. Duckworth called Dillon’s comments “incredibly insulting.”

The equally crazy Sen. Mazie Horono (D-HI) backed up Duckworth’s position on denying Biden’s nominees if they didn’t meet their racial litmus test. 

Duckworth was appeased shortly afterward when the White House said they would appoint a prominent in-house Asian-American liaison officer. It was later reported that someone named Erika Moritsugu will assume the position as a deputy assistant to Biden.

At the beginning of the White House event with the prime minister, Biden made yet another strange statement when he said, “The prime minister’s brought the sun out so we can do about anything.”

Whatever the hell that means.

Biden was also subject to criticism when he blew off greeting Suga, the first foreign head of state to visit the White House since Biden began to occupy the Oval Office.

In fact, Biden’s Twitter account expressed him looking forward to the meeting between the two. Apparently not so much.

PJMedia reported that Biden was a no-show when Suga arrived, instead having his co-occupant of the White House, Kamala Harris greet the Japanese prime minister.

It was an unusual and unprecedented snub by a president to send his surrogate to meet a foreign head of state. And Harris seemed out of her league, according to media reports.

In an even more bizarre twist, nobody greeted Suga at the door. The prime minister and his staff entered the building alone.

The display was in sharp contrast to the scene when former President Donald Trump greeted then Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe at the White House:

Sources say that Biden was “not feeling well” and that was why he blew off greeting Suga. One can imagine that if this was Donald Trump that blew off greeting a foreign head of state, the media would have gone into full meltdown mode.

In this case, they probably just figured Biden was taking his afternoon nap and moved on to the next story. But the White House did make sure to note that Biden had been briefed on the shooting at the FedEx facility in Indianapolis and of course push for more gun control.

No official explanation was given about Biden’s absence in greeting Suga, although he did arrive in time to insult Suga and the Japanese people with his brain-dead comments about Matsuyama.

Hey, it’s just old “lunch bucket Joe” being Joe.

Foul ups, bleeps and blunders are of course nothing new for Biden. Last year, Law Enforcement Today reported on the series of gaffes Biden has made. For more on that, we invite you to:


WILMINGTON, DE – It has been known for years that Joe Biden is prone to gaffes.  In fact, many news reporters have called him “Gaffin Joe” especially during the time he was Vice President under Barack Obama. 

He could be counted on in regular fashion to make a verbal miscue – sometimes, funny, sometimes embarrassing, but always in character. 

More recently, possible issues with dementia have been strongly mentioned, and an example of that was displayed Sunday night during a virtual campaign program from his home in Delaware.  When referring to President Donald Trump, Biden called him “George.”

Biden may have been mixed up with former President George W. Bush, or even George H.W. Bush.  Biden was in office during both of those former presidents’ terms.

 Joe Biden was seated next to his wife and was in a group interview with CNN’s Ana Navarro and eternal Trump-hater and comedian George Lopez when he said he was running against a “George.”

In the video published on Twitter, Biden spells it out:

“Four more years of George, uh, George, uh, he, uh— gonna find ourselves in a position where, if, uh, Trump gets elected, uh, we’re gonna be, uh, we’re gonna be in a different world.”


In another huge gaffe, published this past Saturday, Biden claimed his campaign has assembled:

“… (the) most extensive and inclusive voter fraud organization in the history of American politics.”

In an immediate backtrack, obviously realizing his mistake, he commented:

“What the president is trying to do is discourage people from voting by implying their vote won’t be counted, it can’t be counted, we’re gonna challenge it, and all these things.”

Todd Starnes of expressed his concern for the mental health status of Joe Biden:

“The American people deserve to know if the Democratic nominee is suffering some sort of mental decline. And it’s the Mainstream Media’s job to find answers, not provide cover.”

In another significant gaffe this past week, Biden stated that “10 to 15 percent of Americans just aren’t very good people” and “don’t deserve to vote for Democrats.”

Biden stated:

“Do we really think this is as good as we can be as a nation? I don’t think the vast majority of people think that.  There are probably anywhere from 10 to 15 percent of the people out there who are just not very good people, but that’s not who we are.

“The vast majority of the people are decent. We have to appeal to that and we have to unite people — bring them together. Bring them together.”

These statements are the latest in a long line of questionable comments aimed at Americans, such as calling Trump supporters “chumps.”  Despite these comments, Biden has repeatedly claimed he will be a president for “all the people, not just blue states or red states.”  

Griff Jenkins of Fox News explained:

“Sleepy Joe is obviously doing interviews again. He’s obviously, you know, getting out of the basement and talking to people.  And, we’re going to see, you know, gaffes like this happen over and over and over again. Joe Biden has always been a gaffe machine and this election cycle is not going to change this.”

Rob Smith of Fox News explained further:

“I think that it’s fundamentally a little disappointing and kind of shocking that you have a candidate for a major political party basically writing off millions of potential voters as ‘not very good people.’”

Smith told Griff Jenkins that liberal elitism played a role:

“And, I think that his remarks are indicative of this kind of elitism that’s going on on the left and in the Democratic Party right now where they feel like there is a certain amount of the population that they have to lord over. 

“Look at the difference between how they treated those business owners protesting for the right to open their businesses again compared to how they treated the protesters that were protesting against police brutality and what was going on over the past couple of weeks.”

Droney: Your next president? Here’s a hysterical list of some of the funniest Biden gaffes.

October 06, 2020

Editor note: In this article, we are not seeking to establish the context of which he made the statements – we are simply gathering some of his more cringeworthy moments for your enjoyment.  Because God knows in 2020… we could all use a laugh.  You’ll particularly enjoy the videos.

WILMINGTON, DE – For your edification, we present to you, “Joe Biden’s Greatest Hits.” No, this is not a collection of his favorite hit songs; rather, it is a collection of his greatest gaffes.  And there is a lengthy laundry list; however, this is not even close to a complete collection:

  • “I wanna be clear…I’m not going nuts.”
  • “The president has a big stick” (in reference to President Obama, unknown when Joe saw his stick or under what circumstances)
  • “We choose truth over facts!”
  • “One man stands to deliver the change we desperately need…a man I’m proud to call my friend.  A man who will be the next president of the United States. Barack America!”
  • “Ladies and gentlemen, the President of the United States…Barack Obama (after passing of Obamacare) …this is a big fucking deal!”
  • “Hillary Clinton is as qualified or more qualified than I am to be vice president of the United States of America. Let’s get that straight. And quite frankly, it might have been a better pick than me. But she’s first rate.”

      “….you’re a lying dog-faced pony soldier…”

    • I know I’m called middle class Joe…it’s not meant as a compliment because I’m not really sophisticated enough.”
    • “You’re a damn liar man…that’s not true.  I’m getting things done…that’s why I’m running…and you want to check my shape…let’s do pushups together…let’s run. Let’s do whatever you want to do.”
