During a town hall event on Wednesday, former Democratic Vice President Joe Biden claimed that President Trump is the first “racist” president.
Biden was questioned during the event, which was organized by the Service Employees International Union, about Trump’s tendency to refer to COVID-19 as the “China virus” or “Wuhan virus”, The Hill reported.
“What President Trump has done in his spreading of racism … the way he deals with people based on the color of their skin, their national origin, where they’re from, is absolutely sickening,” Joe Biden said.
“No sitting president has ever done this,” Biden continued. “Never, never, never. No Republican president has done this. No Democratic president. We’ve had racists, and they’ve existed. They’ve tried to get elected president. He’s the first one that has.”
Following Biden’s remarks, host Charlamagne Tha God slammed the former vice president during The Breakfast Club’s segment of “Donkey of the Day”, Thursday.
“I really wish Joe Biden would shut the eff up forever and continue to act like he’s starring in the movie ‘A Quiet Place’ because as soon as he opens his mouth and makes noise, he gets us all killed, OK?” Charlamagne said. Continued Below
“There’s already so many people who are reluctantly only voting for Joe Biden because he’s the only option and because Donald J. Trump is that trash,” the radio host said.
He explained that of registered voters, based off a poll, that 37% are enthused to vote for Biden, but noted that 60% are more enthused about “voting against Trump”, adding: “Now on the flip side, the people that would vote for Trump, 70% are enthused about actually voting for Donald, okay? … The moral of the story is: people aren’t’ enthused about Biden, they just don’t like Trump. … That’s not a great motivator. That’s not something that makes you get up on election day and say, ‘Hey! I have to vote.'”
“When Joe Biden says certain things, he causes even more of a lack of enthusiasm. Case in point, yesterday: America is tired. … We’re really fed up with old white male leadership. Old, white male leadership has gotten us to this point. … Doesn’t matter if you’re Democrat or Republican. Old, while male leadership has failed America. And there is nothing worse than an old, white male who can’t recognize the faults and flaws of other old, white males. We live in country now where everyone is trying to act so woke. … Racism is the American way,” he claimed. Video Below
“Donald Trump is not the first, and sadly, he won’t be the last. He’s just more overt with his racism than most president’s we’ve had in recent times,” Charlamagne alleged. “That’s why when Joe Biden incorrectly referred that Donald Trump as America’s first racist president, okay– like he did yesterday, in virtual town hall. We have to check that immediately … saying Donald Trump is the first racist president is a lie.”
“Joe, you got to hurry up and announce your black woman VP so I can be enthused about voting for her because I will never be enthused about voting for you, and you know America is in a terrible place when Kanye West seems like a viable option,” he added.
In May, Biden told Charlamagne Tha God during an interview: “If you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black.”
