Presumptive Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden appeared on The Breakfast Club — a self-described black media outlet — Friday morning, and did what he does best: open his mouth to change feet.

As reported by RedState’s Bonchie, Biden chastised African Americans who “have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump,” admonishing them, “you ain’t black” if you do.

Imagine, for a nanosecond, the hyperbolic histrionics among the Democrats — including their “mainstream” media sock puppets — if Donald Trump were to bust out something even close to that remark.

Anyway, needless to say, Joe’s handlers went to work immediately, desperately trying to clean up his latest mess. One such handler, senior advisor Symone D. Sanders, who is black, took to Twitter for a quick round of advanced rationalization, along with a healthy dose of whataboutism — an attack on “racist” Donald Trump — tossed in.

Sanders first went with the “Vice President Biden spent his career fighting alongside and for the African American community” spiel,” a popular go-to with Democrats whenever one of their white candidates puts his foot in his non-black mouth:

Then it got “better” — with Sanders incredulously claiming that ol’ Joe was merely “jesting” with the “you ain’t black” jab, while she also took another shot at Trump:

Really, Symone? “Joking” that blacks really “ain’t black” if they don’t vote the way Joe thinks they should? How is that “funny”?

Or maybe Sanders was attempting jiu-jitsu, a Jedi mind trick, or intellectual gymnastics, designed to “placate a handful of white progressive-leaning voters who really don’t want to be troubled by Biden’s comments, because it would be inconvenient”?

Despite Symone Sanders’s “intellectual gymnastics,” the truth is this. Democrats have believed for six decades or more that black voters are duty-bound to the Democrat Party — beholden, as it were.

Blacks must dutifully line up, every election cycle, without question, and mindlessly vote for the Democrat presidential candidate. Voting for a Republican is tantamount to treason against the Democrat Party.

After all, if it weren’t for the Democrats “looking out” for black Americans, the evil Republicans — and now, the Devil’s own spawn, Donald Trump — would commit unspeakable acts of “racism” against them. Or something. Therefore, America’s blacks must not dare to leave the liberal plantation.

Speaking of racism, what better example is there than assuming, demanding, and even chastising those who “disobey,” that people will vote for one party over the other, based solely on the color of their skin?
