Joe Biden now even has “woke” language being slipped into his budget.

As we previously reported, when talking about funding for programs, Joe Biden’s budget removed “mothers” and replaced the term with “birthing people.”

Biden’s Director of Office of Management and Budget Shalanda Young was then questioned on why the language had been changed by House Budget Committee Ranking Member, Rep. Jason Smith (R-MO).

“There are certain people who do not have gender identities that apply to female or male and so we think our language needs to be more inclusive in how we deal with complex issues,” Young replied.

What was funny about it was you could tell that Becerra was doing his best to respond but that he really wasn’t on board with it and didn’t understand it any better than anyone else did. He seemed to be searching for an answer as Rep. Lankford pressed him, asking if this was about offending people, doesn’t he wonder if calling mothers “birthing people” isn’t offensive to mothers?
