Twitter users, including a GOP national spokesperson and Republican congressional candidate, knocked President Joe Biden Monday after he used the word “boy” and fumbled in his introduction of a black senior adviser.

Biden held Monday a briefing on the government’s recovery efforts after Hurricane Ida wrought havoc in Louisiana. The president met online with Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Administrator Deanne Criswell, Democratic Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards and Republican Mississippi Gov. Tate Reeves, The Hill reported.

At the outset of the briefing, Biden introduced White House senior adviser Cedric Richmond as a “boy who knows Louisiana very, very well, and New Orleans.”

His use of the term that is perceived to be derogatory towards Black people received criticism online. GOP national spokesperson Paris Dennard, who is black, pointed out that Richmond “is a 47 year old man.”

“Joe Biden just continues to insult Black men openly and in public because he doesn’t care,” Dennard wrote.

Lavern Spicer, a Florida congressional candidate, called Biden a “rude, condescending racist,” adding that Richmond is “nobody’s boy.”
