Biden blasted for saying it’s racist for airlines to charge passengers for more legroom

Flying is sort of like paying taxes: You don’t want to do it, you don’t have fun while you’re doing it, but it’s a necessary evil.

But according to President Joe Biden, it’s also racist.

During remarks on rising costs and the state of the economy, Biden appeared to veer slightly off track to attack airlines for what he calls “junk fees.” And because he’s a Democrat, he also made sure to throw in how the lack of proper legroom disproportionately affects people of color.


“Some airlines, if you want six more inches between you and the seat in front, you pay more money. But you don’t know it until you purchase your ticket. Look, folks, these are junk fees. They’re unfair, and they hit marginalized Americans the hardest, especially low-income folks and people of color,” Biden claimed. “They benefit big corporations, not consumers, not working families.”
