Black Twitter is confused over a recent statement by Joe Biden during a campaign stop in Tampa. In a video uploaded to Twitter, Biden said the reason he was able to remain "sequestered" in his basement is because "some Black woman was able to stock the grocery shelf."
The 77-year-old Democratic candidate never explained what he meant by that remark. Many on social media are struggling to understand whether Biden has a personal grocery shopper who happens to be Black.
One Twitter user wrote, "This is what happens when Joe Biden takes questions without a teleprompter."

Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren has dropped out of the 2020 race for president of the United States.
Warren, 70, announced she was suspending her campaign on Thursday, March 5, a day after Mike Bloomberg ended his run after spending $500 million of his pocket change.
"I know that when we set out, this was not the call you ever wanted to hear," Warren said in a phone call to her staff. "It is not the call I ever wanted to make.”
Warren, once a frontrunner, was tripped up by her own lies and a mountain of half-truths. She once lied about being American Indian on a Harvard job application. She was forced to come clean after she announced she was running for president.
At times Warren was neck and neck with Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders. She was heavily criticized for not dropping out of the race before Super Tuesday to give Sanders more delegates. And she was once favored over the DNC's current favorite, Joe Biden.
The Democratic nomination is a 2-man race between Biden, 77, who is showing advanced signs of dementia, and Sanders, 78, who dubbed himself a Democratic socialist.

Mike Bloomberg hopes Hillary Clinton will help give him a leg up in the crowded 2020 Democratic field. Drudgereport.com broke the news that Bloomberg, a tech billionaire and former mayor of NY, is considering picking Clinton as his running mate in the 2020 Democratic race.
Currently, Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, 78, leads the Democratic field by 10+ points in the polls.
Bloomberg, 77, is said to be considering changing his official residence to one of his homes in Florida or Colorado because the electoral college prevents the president and vice president from residing in the same state.

Clinton and Bloomberg are pictured attending NY's Gay Pride parade in a photo dated June 2006. Polling indicates the Bloomberg-Clinton ticket would be a "formidable force" in the race for the 2020 Democratic nomination, according to London's DailyMail.com.
Clinton is a two-time loser in the presidential elections, having lost to Presidents Obama and Trump in 2008 and 2016 respectively.
Clinton, 72, has previously said she wouldn't rule out being vice president if the Democrats win the election in November.
The ex-first lady and Secretary of State told TV host Ellen Degeneres she would "never say never" to becoming vice president.
Clinton drew a huge round of applause from The Ellen Degeneres Show's audience when she urged voters to kick Trump out of office in November.
