Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., has apologized for making "politically incorrect" jokes earlier this week at an event hosted by the Las Vegas Asian Chamber of Commerce.

“My comments were in extremely poor taste and I apologize. Sometimes I say the wrong thing," Reid said Friday, according to Politico.

On Thursday, Reid told a predominately Asian-American audience at an event in Las Vegas: “I don’t think you’re smarter than anybody else, but you’ve convinced a lot of us you are.”

He then quipped at the conclusion of his remarks: “One problem that I’ve had today is keeping my Wongs straight.”
