WATCH: Biden refers to 29 year old Master’s champion as “Japanese Boy”

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.”

Many found Biden’s choice of words awkward.
