Presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden said Friday morning that if black Americans can’t figure out whether or not to support him over Donald Trump for president, “then you ain’t black.”
Biden made the controversial comment as he ended an interview with Breakfast Club co-host Charlamagne tha God.
“If you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black,” Biden told Charlamagne.
Charlamagne replied, “It’s a long way until November, we’ve got more questions.”
“It don’t have nothing to do with Trump, it has to do with the fact — I want something for my community,” Charlamagne also replied.
Donald Trump Jr. blasted Biden’s comment, calling it “racist.”
“Imagine if Donald Trump said this,” the President’s oldest son asked.
Twitter exploded over Biden’s comment.
Charlamagne challenged Biden on his record on racial issues and also asked if he was considering an African-American woman as his running mate.
“I’m not acknowledging anybody who is being considered, but I guarantee you: There are multiple black women being considered. Multiple,” Biden said.
While Biden’s “you ain’t black” controversy raged on Friday, unsurprisingly it wasn’t his first gaffe of the day.
In another interview Friday, Biden said, “I’m prepared to say that I have a record over 40 years, and that I’m going to beat Joe Biden.”
Every time he opens his might, Joe Biden seems determined to beat Joe Biden!
Charlamagne noted Friday that Biden’s South Carolina primary victory is what saved his campaign and he had black voters to thank for that.
“It goes back to what I said: Joe Biden owes black people his political life. You know what I’m saying?” Charlamagne said. “So don’t disrespect that base by not showing up, especially when, you know, all your other former opponents did.”
“Black people saved his life the past couple of weeks,” added the radio host. “His campaign would be dead if it wasn’t for our O.G. Jim Clyburn in South Carolina endorsing him, and all those black voters in the South going out and voting for him. Plus, you were the vice president for the first black president.”
“You, in particular, definitely need a black agenda,” Charlamage finished.
