During an interview with 'The Breakfast Club" hosted by radio show host 'Charlamagne Tha God,' former Vice President and 2020 Democratic candidate Joe Biden claimed that black people are not actually black if they vote for President Trump over him in the 2020 election.
“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 comment immediately received harsh backlash online including from several prominent lawmakers on both sides of the isle. One of these lawmakers was Republican Senator Tim Scott of South Carolina.
“1.3 million black Americans already voted for Trump in 2016. This morning, Joe Biden told every single one of us we ‘ain’t black.’ I’d say I’m surprised, but it’s sadly par for the course for Democrats to take the black community for granted and brow beat those that don’t agree,” Scott tweeted.
Scott wasn't the only one to unload on Biden. Donald Trump Jr. tweeted: "Based on @JoeBiden's racist & dehumanizing comments today, I know he thinks he knows more about being black (despite being on the wrong side of every issue that matters to the black community throughout his whole career) than @TimScottSC, but you may want to give this a listen."
Democratic Congressman Vernon Jones unloaded on Biden in this epic video below: "I’ve been black all my life. But I’ve never been anyone’s property, especially not @JoeBiden. You’re not entitled to black support, Joe. You haven’t even earned it."
Senator Lindsey Graham also joined in, tweeting, "The comments from @JoeBiden were truly offensive, but a rare and honest insight into liberals thinking. Liberals believe you really can’t be black, Latino, female, or intelligent unless you support their liberal agenda."
Black conservative activist Candace Owens unloaded on Biden, tweeting, "WOW!! @JoeBiden tells @cthagod that if blacks have to think about whether they are for Trump or for Biden then, “YOU AIN’T BLACK”. Disgusting! @TheDemocrats view black people as trained chimpanzees who should not ask questions, but perform the same circus act every 4 years."
James Woods joined in by keeping it simple:
Even far-left activist Shaun King weighed in, saying, "what the f**k":
Lara Trump wrote: "WHAT IF DONALD TRUMP HAD SAID THIS? Will Joe Biden get a pass on this??? I had to watch 3 times to make sure I actually heard what he said. Here it is verbatim: “if you have a problem figuring out if you’re for me or Trump, then YOU AIN’T BLACK”"
