In comment, Biden implies that all Latinos are illegal aliens

The man who gave you such gems as “Poor kids are just as bright as white kids” and recalls a time when it was acceptable “to make fun of a gay waiter” has come out with his latest hit. And I do mean hit.

So in Biden’s world, if you’re Latino, you’re automatically an illegal alien. That news flash would certainly come as a surprise to Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor, who was born in the Bronx.

To show how liberated he is from himself in an earlier life when he equated segregation with black pride, Biden used the work gender-inclusive term Latinx (which he pronounced as if it rhymed with “Kleenex”) in his observation. But as Evita Duffy notes at The Federalist, the word is unknown to the vast majority of people in the U.S. of Latin ancestry, and only 3% of those who are familiar with it use it. The rest appear to be strenuously opposed to the term, as suggested by tweets like this one:
