Fox News reports Fox Nation host Lawrence Jones said on Monday that presumptive 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden was “ill-prepared” for “The Breakfast Club” interview with Charlamagne tha God, where the former vice president came under fire last week after making a controversial remark about black Americans supporting President Trump.
“He’s been running away from ‘The Breakfast Club’ and Charlamagne tha God for a while,” Jones told “Fox & Friends.
“The Breakfast Club,” a nationally broadcast morning talk show popular with black listeners, has been a platform for presidential candidates to discuss issues pertaining to the black community.
“A lot of politicians have rightfully been running away from ‘The Breakfast Club’ because they don’t have any agenda for black America,” said Jones.
….Jones said that Biden was very “condescending” in the interview with Charlamagne tha God.
“He tried to educate Charlamagne on the crime bill,” he said. “Most people in black America know what happened with the crime bill. He tried to pass the buck, he tried to pretend that he really had a black agenda with the ‘lift every voice.’
“Black America is fed up. They’re tired of giving their votes to Democrats. They’re tired of Republicans not showing up in the community and they would sit this election out if the Democratic Party does not give them something of value. They realize the power they wield and they want reciprocal trade when it comes to this. As the president likes to say: if we’re going to give our vote, we need a tradeoff, we need something that’s going to benefit the community.”
