NAACP Shoots Down Biden's False Claim That It Endorsed Him

Presumptive Democrat nominee Joe Biden will come to rue the day that he agreed to appear on the popular "The Breakfast Club" radio show to pander to a national black audience but instead, managed to alienate the crucial demographic.
The former vice president has been under intense fire - much of it friendly fire - after he stunned host Charlamagne tha God with the proclamation that if you are black and vote for President Trump then you really ain't black at all.
According to Biden:
“If you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t Black.”
Democrats who foisted the borderline senile Biden off on the electorate always feared the killer gaffe and lunchbucket Joe delivered it on a silver platter.
Realizing that all of the work done to incite racial animosity in order to present Biden as the champion of black people was about to go up in smoke, the damage control was swift and led to an apology from Biden that was as insincere as anything ever uttered by Ilhan Omar.
But "The Breakfast Club" interview was disaster as well as a Pandora's box of horrors that the Democrats may never be able to close.
Biden also claimed that he had received the endorsement of the nation's largest civil rights organization The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) which would have been a major feather in his dunce cap.
Only he didn't and the NAACP quickly called him out for being a lying dog-faced pony soldier.
The NAACP on Friday pushed back on a claim by presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden that the civil rights organization had endorsed him “every time I’ve run” -- stating that the group never endorses any political candidate.
“Yesterday, former Vice President Joe Biden made a comment about the NAACP’s endorsement,” the statement by Derrick Johnson, president and CEO of the NAACP, said. “We want to clarify that the NAACP is a non-partisan organization and does not endorse candidates for political office at any level.”
The statement was in response to Biden’s claim during an interview with “The Breakfast Club” that the group had endorsed him every time he had run as he sought to tout his credentials in supporting the black community.
“Take a look at my record. I extended the Voting Rights Act for 25 years. I have a record that is second to none. The NAACP’s endorsed me every time I’ve run,” he said. “Take a look at the record.”
But Johnson in his statement said that “the NAACP has one mission and that is fighting for and advancing our Black communities towards an equitable reality.”
“Our primary focus at this moment is to ensure that our communities that have been victims of domestic terrorism and disproportionately impacted by this pandemic have the opportunity to cast their powerful vote come November,” he said.
The organization's president and CEO Derrick Johnson also rebuked Biden's idea that the Democrats are entitled to the black vote and that black people have an obligation to cast their votes for him.
NAACP President and CEO Derrick Johnson said on CBSN Friday that Joe Biden should not assume he has the full support of the African American community during the election. "You cannot take the African American vote for granted," Johnson told CBSN's Reena Ninan in response to Biden's remark that if black voters are undecided between him and President Trump, then they "ain't black."
Johnson acknowledged that Biden has significant support in the African American community, but said the presumptive nominee should work to maintain that critical support. "You either win or lose with the support of the African American community," he said.
When asked if Biden should apologize for his comments, Johnson said the Biden campaign should take the backlash as a "lesson" moving forward. "In order for his campaign to win he must garner more support from the African American community, and those comments take away from that," he said.
"If his campaign is not taking that serious at this juncture, there's a lot of questions that still need to be answered," he said.
And just like that, all of Rep. Jim Clyburn's hard work and the accumulated goodwill of being the underling of America's first black president has been squandered because of just Joe being Joe.
Whether Biden can repair the damage remains a major question but the corrupt media will do everything that it can to make the story disappear and Democrats will be in lockstep to defend his racist comments and condescension to blacks.
The problem is that Biden is a ticking time bomb that could go off at any moment with a gaffe that could add fuel to the firestorm and cause black voters to stay home like the did when Hillary needed them the most.
Then there is the matter of Barack Obama who has been silent to this point instead of rallying to Biden's defense - perhaps that is not a good omen.
