Biden Regrets Telling Black Voters Considering Backing Trump ‘You Ain’t Black’

Presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden is regretting remarks he made when he told black voters if they can’t choose between supporting him or President Donald Trump in the upcoming election then “you ain’t black.”

During an interview with radio host Charlamagne Tha God on the show “The Breakfast Club,” Biden sparked controversy when he said, “If you have a problem figuring out whether me or Trump, then you ain’t black,” as IJR reported.

Walking back those remarks, the former vice president said during a phone call with black business leaders, “I shouldn’t have been such a wise guy. I shouldn’t have been so cavalier.”

He continued:

“I don’t take it for granted at all and no one should have to vote for any party based on their race, religion or background. There are African Americans who think Trump is worth voting for. I don’t think so and I’m prepared to put my record against his, that was the bottom line and it was really unfortunate, I shouldn’t have been so cavalier.”

In case you missed it:

The Trump campaign quickly responded to Biden’s remarks on Friday, saying, “It is clear now more than ever, following these racist and dehumanizing remarks, that Joe Biden believes black men and women are incapable of being independent or free thinking.”

Additionally, the Trump campaign is planning to launch a $1 million digital ad blitz focused on Biden’s remarks from the radio show segment.

Biden’s senior advisor Symone Sanders pushed back against the criticism of the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee’s comments.

“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,” Sanders tweeted on Friday.

The radio host also responded as he told Mediaite, “As Biden said in our brief interview when I asked him if Dems owe the black community ABSOLUTELY was his answer. So let’s see what you got!!!”

    1. Biden’s had a stroke. He’s only one blood clot or bleed from drooling all over himself. I wouldn’t be surprised if he dropped before Nov.

  1. Democrats have been using blacks and other minorities for decades, many decades. First, they get them addicted to hand-outs, then they tell minorities if they vote for a republican they’ll lost their free hand-outs. It’s been going on since FDR’s New Deal. Read the empty promises all the 20 Democrat contenders made during the preliminaries. Listen again to the debates. They did it right down the line. The problem is they never deliver.

  2. Mr. Biden’s handlers need to keep a tighter control on his ignorance. “No Joe, you can only say what I’ve written on the teleprompter, nothing off script. People already think you’re a dunce, don’t prove them right.”

  3. No one backpedals like a Democrat. Poor Joe could write the instruction book on it. When is his wife going to step in and stop his pain?

    1. WHAT exactly has Biden said that is AS embarrassing as Trump praising the Revolutionary soldiers for successfully defending the airports or bragging that he received calls from “hundreds of governors”? What is more embarrassing than having a POTUS laughed AT by world leaders at the UN General Assembly? Were you actually NOT embarrassed when Trump claimed on the world stage that he did not believe all U.S. Intel agencies, but instead believed a former KGB agent?? The American electorate should be embarrassed that 63 million voters cast a ballot for a KNOWN con man with a long rap sheet of fines for corrupt business practices that bragged he did NO preparation for the office he was seeking.

      1. For starters rubbing literal children’s shoulders that he isn’t related too. Talking about letting his grandkids “play with his leg hair” rubbing other men’s wives shoulders while leaning in and sniffing their hair at public events no less. Oh then there’s telling those poor ignorant black folks if they can’t stay on the democratic plantation “they ain’t black”. Oh let’s not forget when he previously made a racist derogatory remark against blacks stating their kids could do just as well as white kids referring to black children as “poor kids”. So Phyllis how do you feel about your senile Biden now dude couldn’t even manage to get his tie on for his interview, and he’s a PROVEN racist just look up Biden’s past support for the KKK or his actions prior to being Obama’s token old white dude as VP.

      2. More of Syphilis’s BS. Democrats have been using Blacks since FDR. I think minorities are waking up to the fact that Trump is the one that has actually helped them.

  4. Too bad the lazy, corrupt DNC couldn’t bring themselves to employing people with the imagination and creativity of people who have the balls to name themselves something like “Charlamagne Tha God”.

    You have to admit that that’s BRILLIANT marketing, just brilliant.

      1. Quite the opposite, actually. I recognize creative talent when I see it, Phyllis, and ALSO can acknowledge when it it is missing (DNC).

        That isn’t to say that I agree with his politics. I know little about him otherwise.

  5. The democrat party DOES think black voters aren’t capable independent or free thinking. They tell blacks how they should vote and promise them things; read free stuff and once the election is over they forget them.

  6. If no one had complained, creepy Joe would have been proud of the comment. He would have reminded everyone that he said it like he bragged about his quid pro quo in the Ukraine and having his leg hairs rubbed.

    1. I find it perplexing that anyone that supports Trump would find Joe Biden “creepy.” YOU do realize the entire world is aware of Trump’s comments on the Access Hollywood video? If those comments, the Howard Stern interviews, the videos of him partying with Epstein, being accused of rape of a 13yr old in Epstein’s apartment, and NDA’s with a porn star, being accused of rape or sexual harassment of 24 women, do NOT meet your criteria for “creepy,” what is it that does?
      Regarding Ukraine, you do know in 2015 Senators Rob Portman and Ron Johnson penned the letter signed by the Senate Ukraine caucus PRAISING VP Biden for his actions?? WHAT changed?

      1. Do you know that no one cares about your BS, Syphilis? All you have are accusations, no proof. You believe the accusations against Trump, but deny the accusations against Biden. You are one stupid hypocrite!!!

      2. I find it perplexing that anyone would be a dem/leftist/prog/socialist.
        Epstein tried hanging around Trump and Trump put an end to that idea.
        Unlike one of your fav dem/leftist, Billy Bob Clinton and even Hillary.
        You do realize that people watch more than the leftist news, right?
        You do know that CNN and MSNBC ratings drop almost weekly, right?
        No? Yeah I guess they won’t tell you, huh.
        But hey, they still got you Babe!

      3. Biden’s creepiness comes out of his own mouth and video of his own actions about children. You can’t compare that to locker room talk when Biden has actually been accused of grabbing Tara Reade’s cat.

        1. Would YOU believe Tara Reade if she was making the same accusations against ANY R? First it was rubbing her neck and she filed a sexual harassment complaint. Then she says she filed a complaint, but she did not call it sexual harassment. No complaint has been located and she has no copy. Four of the individuals Reade provided to confirm her allegation DID NOT verify them. THEN a year after the initial accusation, she claimed sexual assault. She filed a criminal complaint, but did not name Joe Biden as the assaulter. She claims her mother called Larry King’s show, but the call did not mention Biden and came from California where her mother did not live. She has produced no evidence that her mother was in California at the time of the call. Then it was disclosed that she testified as an “expert” when she did not have a degree but did attend a few quarters at a college. Her lawyer, a donor to the Trump campaign, suddenly dropped her as a client. IF READE is your evidence of “creepiness” against Biden, then you must be shaken by Trump’s refusal to provide the a DNA sample in the E. Jean Carroll rape civil suit.

          1. Believe all women. Especially if it’s a D against a R. That’s the Democrats mantra, right? Oh, unless it’s D against a D with no agenda. No complaint has been located? It’s on Larry King from decades ago, it wasn’t just created. There’s more evidence against Biden than against Trump and the difference in investigations is troublesome. How hard do you think it is to get a DNA sample from Trump? That’s a poor excuse.

  7. Maybe he should add you to the shit on list, John. Joe has no principles, anything goes to win telling Blacks their not black,grabbing broads asses, kissing babies, plagerizing Neil Kinnock, talking shit about CornPone, forgetting where he is or quoting wrong statistics, maybe choosing fat Stacey Abrams to placate the blacks. Hes a gem, right?

    1. And you believe the Revolutionary soldiers successfully defended the airport? That medical experts should investigate implanting UV light and injecting disinfectants in human bodies for treatment of COVID??? That wind turbine noise causes cancer? That “3-5 million” illegal entry individuals cast a ballot for Hillary in 2016? That Trump grew 2 inches post inauguration?
      That a 6’1″ man weighing 243 is not obese???—-check out the golfing photos from Memorial Day weekend and tell me Trump has the right to call anyone “fat.” Were you still of the belief that Trump was unaware of the NDA’s or payment source for a porn star and a Playboy model??? I personally hope Biden does not chose Stacey Abrams for his running mate, but not because of her weight or race—because she served as a Minority Leader in a STATE ASSEMBLY. Were you thinking Trump selection of Pence wasn’t to appease the Evangelical Right????

  8. I’m sure the ” there’s my African American ! ” RECTUM-IN-CHIEF and lifelong racist ass hole will be shitting on this for all it’s worth.

    1. John your candidate is literally so senile he can’t even manage to tie his own tie for an interview. That’s the guy who you support unquestionably a literal senile old creepy touching man.

      1. Rrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrriiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiggggggggggghhhhhhhhhhhhhtttttttttttttttttttttt

        Yyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaawwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn.

        Bbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbboooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooorrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrriiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiinnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnngggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggg

          1. When it came time for Chuck to choose taking the red pill or the blue pill, Chuck chose the blue pill, to remain in blissful ignorance.

          2. Porta-john skipped his meds again. Obviously the blue pill represents the democrat party.

          3. Obsidian – Markfart will say anything to defend his stance. He thought the plague was caused by person to person contact and, in his latest gaff, thought the blue pill would represent me being a Conservative. Either drugs or a mental disorder or both are his problem. He should quit while he’s behind.

      2. I must remind you that “your guy” thought the Revolutionary soldiers successfully defended the airports? As far as creepy goes, you appear to be a bit senile yourself in forgetting that Trump is on video at Mar-a-largo partying with Epstein and photographed at Epstein’s NYC apt. Then of course you have the NDA to cover the affair with a porn star.
        If you are actually opposed to creepy and senile, you should re-evaluate YOUR candidate.
