KEY HIGHLIGHTS
  • Some people claimed that Joe Biden suffered yet another gaffe at the NATO summit welcome address Tuesday.
  • While praising UN General Secretary Jens Stoltenberg, Biden appeared to say 'intellectual rigour.'
  • However, many thought that he actually said 'wigger,' a derogatory term for blackness.
Although President Joe Biden's welcome address was better compared to the first debate, certain moments started going viral on social media with some users saying that they were gaffes. One particular moment was shared hundreds of times in which the president allegedly calls Nato Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg an 'intellectual 'wigger' - a derogatory term for blackness or acting black.
However, as some users pointed out on social media, the president was most likely saying 'intellectual rigour,' as he welcomed Stoltenberg onto the stage during his welcome address at Melon Auditorium in Washington DC.
"So much of the progress we've made in the alliance is thanks to the Secretary. He's a man of integrity and intellectual rigor, a calm temperament in a moment of crisis," Biden said.
However, some users put the clip out on social media saying that it was most likely a gaffe and Biden ended up saying 'wigger.' A debate broke out between people who said the 81-year-old said 'wigger,' and those who said 'rigour.' Here is the clip:
Here are some of the reactions to it:
"I heard “rigor” I’m all for going after Biden, but I disagree with this one," one user said.
Another user said: "Honestly I’m trying to give him the benefit of the doubt but I can’t think of anything close to wigger that he was trying to say. We’ve already come to the conclusion he’s sunsetting and the dnc and any other politicians and federal agency leaders to include the IC are all liable. Someone in his predicament should not have an Executive level clearance. And any doctors that said he is healthy should also be investigated to see if any type of business connections are involved."
"He said it. He’s an old school racist and can’t help himself," said another.
Joe Biden addressed the NATO summit as the conference kicked off in Washington DC on the 75th year of the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO) - a US-led defense alliance of 32 nation-states formed in 1949, shortly after World War II ended. In his speech, the POTUS emphasized that NATO is stronger than it has ever been in its history.
Biden also spoke extensively about the Russia-Ukraine conflict, declaring that even though Putin wants complete subjugation of Ukraine, the latter will remain a free country at the end of the war.
