NYPost reports Joe Biden on Friday told the popular host of a New York City-based syndicated radio show that anyone still pondering whether to support the presumptive Democratic nominee or President Trump in November “ain’t black.”
The former veep’s remarks came during an interview on “The Breakfast Club,” where Charlamagne tha God challenged Biden over his record on racial issues and consideration of a black, female running mate.
“I’m not acknowledging anybody who is being considered, but I guarantee you: There are multiple black women being considered. Multiple,” Biden said on the program, according to Politico.
An aide to the candidate could then be heard trying to cut short the interview.
“Thank you so much. That’s really our time. I apologize,” the aide said.
“You can’t do that to black media!” Charlamagne said.
“I do that to white media and black media because my wife has to go on at 6 o’clock,” Biden snapped back, apparently referring to a planned media appearance by Jill Biden.
“Listen, you’ve got to come see us when you come to New York, Vice President Biden,” Charlamagne said. “It’s a long way until November. We’ve got more questions.”
“You’ve got more questions?” Biden responded. “Well I tell you what, if you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black.”
