In Kenosha, a woman of colour named Portia Bennett attended Joe Biden’s event. She dared to ask a question to Biden that was not on the “paper” she received.
She questioned Biden on the issue of consistent police violence against the black community in Kenosha.
Bennett said “I’m just going to be honest, Mr Biden. I was told to go off this paper, but I can’t.”
She said that her community is furious at the rioters and not at the ones who are protesting.
What Did Bennett Question Biden?
Bennett said that she has always been in Kenosha from the time of her birth. She demanded for there to be more laws against police brutality. Bennett asked why the concerned authorities aren’t “holding the officers accountable”.
Also, “Why are there more police officers in the black neighbourhoods?”
Bennett said she is concerned because she has two children. She believes that her children deserves to have the same rights as everyone else.
After Effect Of The Incident
When the incident got revealed to the masses, it created havoc. It appeared like Joe Biden had controlled his conferences by giving scripts to the media.
Soon social media platforms flooded with posts accusing Biden of being manipulative.
The Trump War Room, tweeted: “Woman at Biden event in Kenosha says she was given a “paper” telling her what to say.”
After the conference, Bennett told the reporters that the script belonged to the organisation where she works.
Biden’s campaign also clarified the same. The campaign negated having provided any papers to the participants of the conference.
