During the Democrat Primary season, at an LGBT Forum in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, Joe Biden was recorded suggesting that male-to-female prisoners, who are born biologically male and may still have male genitalia depending on whether they chose to have gender reassignment surgery prior to their conviction, deserve to be treated as the gender they declare themselves to be, and thus, should be entitled to see an OB/GYN.
Though obstetrics is defined as “the branch of medicine and surgery concerned with childbirth and the care of women giving birth,” and gynecology is defined as “the branch of physiology and medicine which deals with the functions and diseases specific to women and girls, especially those affecting the reproductive system,” Joe Biden said that transgender inmates deserve to be treated according to their self-defined gender, and should have access to an OB/GYN if requested.
“By the way, in prison, in prison, the determination should be that your sexual identity is defined by what you say it is, not what, in fact, the prison says it is,” Biden declared.
“And in that case, you should be entitled, also, to OB/GYN,” Biden continued, before veering off the unprompted prison discussion and back to the actual question that was asked.

While this gaffe was not new when it went viral on social media for a second time this week, Biden recently seemed to suggest that small businesses will only receive aid from his administration if they are owned by minorities or women.
“Our priority will be Black, Latino, Asian, and Native American owned small businesses, women-owned businesses, and finally having equal access to resources needed to reopen and rebuild,” Biden said, falsely inferring that minorities and women have less access to resources than white men.
“But we’re going to make a concerted effort to help small businesses in low-income communities, in big cities, small towns, rural communities, that have faced systemic barriers to relief,” Biden continued.
Despite credible accusations of widespread voter fraud in key battleground states, Joe Biden is set to be inaugurated at noon on Wednesday, January 20.
