Joe Biden has always been a walking gaffe machine, but this week he took it to a whole new level.
During an interview with host host Charlamagne tha God, Biden told him that if he didn’t support him then he “ain’t black.”
It’s stunning that even Biden would say something so tone deaf, insensitive, and frankly, racist.
The Washington Free Beacon has details:
Biden: If You Don’t Vote for Me, ‘You Ain’t Black’
Presumptive Democratic nominee and former vice president Joe Biden told radio host Charlamagne tha God that he “ain’t black” if he is having trouble choosing between Biden and President Donald Trump.
“If you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black,” Biden said Friday morning during an appearance on The Breakfast Club.
Charlamagne responded that he’s not considering Trump, but he wants more from Biden for the black community, such as the selection of an African-American woman as vice president. He also took issue with a Biden adviser trying to end the interview, saying, “You can’t do that to black media.”

This caused a firestorm everywhere except… CNN.
#YouAintBlack and #JoeBidenIsARacist were top trending topics on Friday. MSNBC, CBS, NBC, ABC and Fox News covered the presumptive Democratic nominee’s widely-condemned remarks throughout the day. One outlet refused to touch it until almost 12 hours later: https://t.co/5AjcMABqxJ

If you didn’t support Hillary in 2016, #YouAintWoman
