Former Vice President Joe Biden (D) just made an embarrassing flub that could cost him significant support among African Americans.
Joe Biden was doing an interview with Breakfast Club co-host Charlamagne tha God, who after so many broken promises from Dems over the years wanted to know if Biden would be different.
To which Biden said “then you ain’t black” if you have to figure out who to vote for.
“I’m not acknowledging anybody who is being considered, but I guarantee you: There are multiple black women being considered. Multiple,” Biden said of his possible vice presidential nominees.
At that moment an aide to the Biden broke in and tried to end 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 said before adding: “Uh oh. I’m in trouble.”
“Listen, you’ve got to come see us when you come to New York, VP Biden,” Charlamagne added.
“It’s a long way until November. We’ve got more questions.”
“You’ve got more questions?” Biden said before making an odd and possibly lethal racial comment:
“Well I tell you what, if you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black.”

Listen to the audio.@JoeBiden: “If you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t Black.”
Biden thinks he can dictate what makes people Black or not. https://t.co/aRBRPQcGXA
