(FOX NEWS) – Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., jokingly suggested President Biden undergo diversity training for his “unconscious bias” on Thursday after the president used the phrase “Neanderthal thinking” to describe Texas and Mississippi rolling back coronavirus restrictions.
The Florida Republican quipped that the president’s “use of an old stereotype” when referring to the decision by some conservative states to lift mask mandates and reopen their economies was “hurtful” to those who share Neanderthalian genes.
“President Biden’s use of an old stereotype is hurtful to modern Europeans, Asians & Americans who inherit about 2% of their genes from Neanderthal ancestors,” wrote Rubio, who linked out to an article in the tweet.
Rubio suggested Biden “seek training on unconscious bias” and called on the president to “apologize for his insensitive comments.”
