Now we know why the Pope canceled a live broadcast with Biden on Thursday. When Joe Biden met with the Pope on Friday, he uttered a line that is so awkward that it defies belief. Watch:

“You’re the famous African-American baseball player in America.”

The purported President of the United States actually said this to the Pope. After a 75 minute meeting. This is not the behavior of a serious person, let alone one of the two ‘most powerful Catholics’ in the world.
