In a rare live appearance earlier this morning, President Biden clarified the “Neanderthal thinking” remark he made on Wednesday.
“C’mon, man. I got my remarks mixed up. It was a brain fart. What I meant was, we don’t need Neanderthal thinking about women anymore, like Governor Cuomo. Hey, I don’t think that was a fart. Can I get some help here?”
White House spokesperson Jen Psaki circled back to the president’s remarks a few minutes later.
“The president definitely meant to direct the Neanderthal thinking comment toward Governor Cuomo,” she told reporters. “What he intended to say regarding Texas and Mississippi is that those guys are assholes.”
