President Joe Biden had several cringeworthy moments at a CNN town hall event Tuesday night in Wisconsin.
1. Biden claimed at one point that “minorities … don’t know how to use, know how to get online.”

2. After his comments about American minorities, Biden moved on to the topic of Chinese minorities and China’s related human rights abuses against Uyghur Muslims, who are widely believed to live in concentration camp-like facilities within China.
Biden explained he’s “not going to speak out against … what he’s [President Xi Jinping] is doing with the Uyghurs.” He then reiterated by saying, “He [Xi] gets it,” posing that “culturally there are different norms” about how humans should be treated.
