Footage has surfaced online of Joe Biden recently using the exact same phrasing—"sexual preference"—that Amy Coney Barrett was condemned for during Tuesday's Supreme Court confirmation hearing.

Earlier Dem. Senator Mazie Hirono scolded Coney Barrett by saying, "Sexual preference is an offensive and outdated term. It is used by anti-LGBTQ activists to suggest that sexual orientation is a choice. It is not. Sexual orientation is a key part of a person's identity. Sexual orientation is both a normal expression of human sexuality and immutable, was a key part of the majority's opinion in Obergefell, which by the way Scalia did not agree with.

"So if it is your view that sexual orientation is merely a preference, as you noted, then the LGBTQ community should be rightly concerned whether you would uphold their constitutional right to marry."

White House spokesperson Judd Deere tweeted in response: "Give me a break! The Democratic nominee for President used the same term in June of this year.

What is offensive is that she assumes I’m offended by this as part of her radical group-think belief.

I assure you Senator, I know what offends me and this does not."

The hypocrisy of Democrats who condemned Coney Barrett was highlighted by Reason's Robby Soave, who quipped, "As Mazie Hirono and Cory Booker made clear, it is NOT OKAY to say 'sexual preference' instead of 'orientation.' This is 'archaic and offensive.' I am thus demanding a swift and immediate apology... from Joe Biden, who used this term during a speech in May."
