Biden claims one thing people in jail have in common is they “can’t read”

Without offering an elaboration, former Vice President claimed during an appearance on “The Breakfast Club” that one thing all people have in jail is they “can’t read.”

Joe Biden:

There’s only a couple things everybody has in common in jail. One is they were the victims of abuse or they’re kids — or their mother was.

Number two, can’t read. Number three, they don’t have any job skills. They were in a position where they didn’t get a chance.

Why does it make sense — why did I come along and write the first act that said: when you get out of prison, you don’t just get a…where you get 25 bucks and a bus ticket.

You end up under the bridge. You end up under the bridge and just to the same place. So every single solitary person being released from prison should have access to every single government program.

Why does it not make sense to have African-Americans who’re getting out of prison [cough] serve their time? Everybody, for that matter, be able to have public housing.

Why doesn’t it make sense that they can have Pell grants to go to school? Why doesn’t it make sense that they can have access to health care. What are we, nuts? ‘Cause that’s what we keep doing?

Meanwhile, Biden is under fire for another bizarre comment he made on the same show.

“If you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black,” Biden told Charlamagne, not in response to any question, but to the host’s statement: “It’s a long way until November, we’ve got more questions.”

“It don’t have nothing to do with Trump, it has to do with the fact — I want something for my community,” the radio host shot back.


Donald Trump Jr. reacted to the segment by tweeting:

Retweet if you think this sounds racist AF!!!

Imagine if Donald Trump said this…
