(Washington Examiner) CNN anchor Brianna Keilar got into a heated back-and-forth Monday with Biden campaign spokesperson Symone Sanders about the former vice president's recent comments about "poor kids."
The conversation centered on comments the 2020 front-runner said last week at a town hall for the Asian & Latino Coalition PAC in Iowa. While speaking about the importance for a strong education regardless of wealth he said, "Poor kids are just as bright and just as talented as white kids — ” but then he quickly corrected himself, “ — wealthy kids, black kids, Asian kids.”
