President Donald Trump has said that Joe Biden is “no longer worthy of the black vote” after the former VP made remarks insinuating they were a monolith.
“Are You A Junkie??”
Earlier this week, Biden had a one-two punch of racist gaffes. First, when a black interviewer asked him if he had done a cognitive test or not, Biden shot back, asking whether the interviewer was on cocaine or not.
“Are you a junkie??” Biden asked him.

Then, on Thursday, Biden spoke to a panel of the National Association of Black Journalists, and insinuated they were all a monolith.
“What you all know, but most people don’t know, unlike the African-American community, with notable exceptions, the Latino community is an incredibly diverse community, with incredibly different attitudes about different things,” Biden said.

“Sleepy Joe Biden Is No Longer Worthy Of The Black Vote!”
“Joe Biden this morning totally disparaged and insulted the black community,” the President told reporters outside the White House on Thursday, in response to Biden’s comments. “What he said is incredible and I don’t know what’s going on with him, but it was a very insulting statement he made.”
Then in a tweet on Friday, the President doubled down.
“After yesterday’s statement, Sleepy Joe Biden is no longer worthy of the Black Vote!” the President said.

There’s Only One Racist Candidate, And It’s Not Trump!
In fact, Joe Biden has shown he isn’t even sorry for his comments!
“In no way did I mean to suggest the African American community is a monolith—not by identity, not on issues, not at all,” Biden said in a statement. “Throughout my career I’ve witnessed the diversity of thought, background, and sentiment within the African American community.”
“It’s this diversity that makes our workplaces, communities, and country a better place,” Biden continued. “My commitment to you is this: I will always listen, I will never stop fighting for the African American community and I will never stop fighting for a more equitable future.”
As you can see, there is actually no apology there at all!
Biden’s team even doubled down on the “junkie” comments, claiming “it was a preposterous question deserving of a response that showed the absurdity of it all.”
If this hasn’t shown just how racist Biden is, I don’t know what will! Biden will keep losing the black community, and more and more of them will vote for President Trump in November.
