A Biden spokesman tries clarifying what was going on with Joe Biden in China

 

“The Obama Administration strongly opposes all aspects of China’s coercive birth limitation policies, including forced abortion and sterilization,” Biden’s spokeswoman Kendra Barkoff told The Daily Caller in an email. “The Vice President believes such practices are repugnant.”

Barkoff explained that Biden was attempting to critique the restrictive system with his comments.

“He also pointed out, in China, that the policy is, as a practical matter, unsustainable,” Barkoff added. “He was arguing against the One Child Policy to a Chinese audience. ”

 

Repugnance certainly didn’t come across in the vice president’s English.
