During an awkward speech, President Biden referred to 29 year old Japanese Masters champion Hideki Matsuyama as a “Japanese Boy.”
Speaking to Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga, Biden said “Yoshi, I know how proud you are, the people of Japan are…and you’ve got a Japanese boy coming over here, and guess what? He won the Masters. He won the Masters. He won the green jacket.”
President Biden congrats the Japan PM on Hideki Matsuyama becoming the first Japanese golfer to win the Masters:

Many found Biden’s choice of words awkward.
Japanese are actually tweeting about the disrespect from Biden by saying that Japanese boy.
Biden is a disgrace and embarrassment.

The media gives Joe Biden a pass on everything! If Trump had said a “Japanese Boy” won the Masters, the media would turn it into an International Incident.
