Former Vice President Joe Biden’s overtures to the black community hit a road block today when the 77-year-old candidate broke his left hip while attempting a breakdance move called a “windmill” during an online campaign event broadcast from his Wilmington, Delaware basement.
“Crunk up that hippity-hop and peep out this b-boy, man,” Biden rapped to a stunned audience of African-American leaders before launching into a series of high-energy moves that culminated in a botched transition from a Superman to an airplane windmill.
The accident comes on the heels of a controversial comment during a radio interview with Charlamagne tha God last week, when Biden quipped, “If you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, you ain’t black.”
The Biden campaign released a statement saying the septuagenarian ex-Senator would be confined to his basement for six to eight weeks with little to no physical activity.
“There will be no changes to Mr. Biden’s schedule whatsoever,” insisted campaign manager Jen O’Malley Dillon.
