President Joe Biden’s perpetually inarticulate remarks have once again stirred up a controversy. A “bombshell” of a controversy, if you will.

During a trip Tuesday to Fort Worth to visit with veterans, the president delivered a brief speech while standing alongside three Texas lawmakers — Democrat Reps. Colin Allred and Marc Veasey, and Republican Rep. Jake Ellzey.

In introducing the three, he said, “The three congressmen you have here — two of them look like they could, they really could and did play ball. And the other one looks like he could bomb you. And that’s, it’s a tough group but a good group.”

This specific remark wound up going mega-viral on Twitter, where perplexed viewers were left wondering what in the world the president was talking about.

Why did two of them look like they could play basketball? And why did the third one look like he “could bomb you?” And which congressmen in particular was he speaking about when he uttered these stunning words?

Some speculated that perhaps he’d said something racist. They attributed this to his history of spouting blatantly racist rhetoric:

Others wondered if maybe he’d meant to say “looks like Obama.” Everyone meanwhile agreed that, if the president’s remarks are indeed as “racist” as they appear, then the establishment media will jump through hoops to “spin” his remarks.

Or, rather, to “clarify” and “fact-check” his remarks:

But there is no spinning this. The White House’s own transcript proves that the president said exactly what it sounds like he said.

However, the transcript does also provide some context.

Prior to making he “bomb you” remark, the president told the audience that Ellzey was a fighter pilot. This, it turns out, is true.

The lawmaker’s biography notes that he’s a Navy veteran who “flew H-60 helicopters, F-14 Tomcats, F/A-18 Hornets, and Super Hornets in defense of our nation” throughout his 20-year Naval career.

It appears this would explain the “bomb you” remark. But it also proves that when the president had spoken about the two who “play ball,” he’d specifically been referencing the two black congresswomen. Is there an explanation for this as well? Somewhat.

Allred’s biography notes that he played five seasons in the NFL “before sustaining a career-ending injury.” This proves that he’s an athlete, though that doesn’t necessarily mean he could play basketball. Moreover, and this seems to be key, Veasey’s biography says nothing about sports. So what made the president assume he could “play ball?”

The going consensus is that the primary reason the president presumed both Allred and Veasey could “play ball” is because of the color of their skin:

And indeed, the president’s longtime modus operandi suggests that his latest remarks were indeed yet another racist gaffe:
