When all is said and done, Joe Biden’s team is really going to regret he did the interview on “The Breakfast Club” because he went over the edge during the interview.
First, he made the horrible comment to Charlamagne tha God that offended a lot of people, “If you have a problem with figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black.”
Then, when he was talking about criminal justice reform with Charlamagne, he also made a crazy comment that there were a couple of things that everyone in jail has in common — that they, or their mothers, were abused, they had no skills and they couldn’t read. Yikes.
But according to Fox News, there was another comment as well. During the interview, Biden claimed that the NAACP had endorsed him “every time I’ve run.”
“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.”
Except there’s a small problem with that, as the NAACP made clear on Friday.
The group doesn’t endorse political candidates, ever, as they made clear in rebuking Biden’s claim.
“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.” [….]
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.
When interviewed on CNN after the furor over Biden’s remarks, Charlemagne tha God, indicated that he was concerned about what the candidates had to offer now and that Biden had been harmful to the black community in the past with his legislative actions.
“My takeaway from the conversation was I heard him talking about things he did for black people back in the day, but you know ‘what have you done for me lately’ is my motto,” he said on CNN late Friday.
He also said Biden was “really one of the people on the front line when it came to the war on drugs and mass incarceration.”
So why is Joe lying about being endorsed by the NAACP “every time I’ve run?” At what point do Democrats say, enough of the farce? Problem, of course, is all their candidates were awful and this was the best they had, which says a lot.
