Radical left liberal writer for The Atlantic and former ESPN commentator Jemele Hill is now defending former Vice President Joe Biden after he stated that "you ain't black" if you vote for President Trump.
In the past, Hill has accused President Trump of being a "white supremacist" without evidence however she is bizarrely defending Biden who apparently thinks he can decide who and who can't be black.
Instead of condemning Biden for his racist comments, Hill decided to hammer President Trump for his "devotion to a Nazi sympathizer" after the President praised Henry Ford last week.
“The issue wasn’t what Joe Biden said, because it was accurate,” tweeted Hill. “The issue was that it came from Biden. It also was clearly a joke that didn’t land. But I’m wondering where all this outrage was yesterday when y’all president declared his public devotion to a Nazi sympathizer.”
Hill doubled down after the Twitter world called her out for her defense of Biden.
“I don’t have a problem with the statement because he was clearly referring to this from a policy and track record standpoint. If you’re black and you support anti-black policies and positions, then that makes you …? You’re still technically black but you ain’t with us,” she said.
Hill clearly thinks like Biden considering she believes she is the one who can decide who and who isn't black. The far-left former ESPN commentator immediately got shredded online.
“The problem was, in fact, what he said. He’s gaffe prone and Trump said something worse, fine––that’s to be expected. What’s more disturbing is this acceptance of the idea that an ethnic identity *must be wed* to a specific politics. What other ethnic group is policed like this?” Thomas Chatterton Williams tweeted.
“1) Which is it? A “joke” we’re not supposed to take seriously or an “accurate” truth? 2) It not surprising that a known racist does racist things. It is noteworthy (and newsworthy) when the chosen representative of a multiracial, inclusive party dabbles in racial essentialism,” tweeted Briahna Joy Gray.
The contravercial comments from Biden came during an interview with 'The Breakfast Club" hosted by radio show host 'Charlamagne Tha God.'
“You got more questions but I’ll tell you if you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black,” Biden said.
The Biden campaign is now responding to backlash by defending the former Vice President from his claim.
Instead of apologizing, senior advisor to the Biden campaign Symone Sanders tried defending the former Vice President by saying that he has a record of “fighting alongside and for the African American community.” She also claimed that the comments were made "in jest."
"Vice President Biden spent his career fighting alongside and for the African American community," Sanders said. "He won his party's nomination by earning every vote and meeting people where they are and that's exactly what he intends to do this November."
She continued: "The comments made at the end of the Breakfast Club interview were in jest, but let’s be clear about what the VP was saying: he was making the distinction that he would put his record with the African American community up against Trump’s any day. Period."
