Joe Biden: Than You Ain't Black!
Joe Biden: If You can’t Figure Out You’re for Him or Trump than you ain’t Black Yes, Joe Biden popped up out of the basement and uttered a Bidenism to Charlamagne tha God, the host of the Breakfast Club: “If you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black.” Oops! His staff quickly issued an explanation; he meant it as a joke. Later he said “I shouldn’t have been so cavalier.” Of course he got flack. People know their skin color as much as they know anything about themselves. They understand their skin color. It probably won’t affect the November voting by itself, but Sleepy Joe backed himself into a box. He has said he will nominate a woman as his running mate, and anointed next president. The pressure is on him to nominate an African American woman as his woman mate. So much for Senator Amy Klobuchar, who would probably have the most crossover appeal. His statement was just another politically incorrect Bidenism, bordering on racism. So what now: What about “If you have trouble figuring out if you’re for me or Trump, than you ain’t a woman.” Here’s what the then Senator said about Senator Obama’s race for the Presidency: “I mean, you got the mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy, I mean, that’s a storybook, man.” As for his fellow Delaware citizens, he said “In Delaware the largest growth in population is Indian-American, moving from India. You cannot go to a 7/11 or a Dunkin’ Donut unless you have a slight Indian accent, I’m not joking.” Here’s the classic Bidenism that received little publicity “I may be Irish, but I’m not stupid. He can still say “If you have trouble figuring out if you’re for me or Trump, than you ain’t a Hispanic.” Or “If you have trouble figuring out if you’re for me or Trump, than you ain’t a Native American.” Why can’t he good all the way: “If you have trouble figuring out if you’re for me or Trump, than you ain’t an American.” He has a seemingly infinite number of stupid comments left to say before November. He can’t control what he says. That’s his problem. Even while Joe Biden is sequestered in his basement, he still utters Bidenisms. Think of when he’s released! Even the mainstream media will be unable to ignore them. Remember Joe Biden at a campaign rally a few months ago said he was running for Senator. Joe said a few months ago poor folks are just as bright and just as talented as white kids, and then added “wealthy kids, black kids, Asian kids.” Here’s some non-racist Bidenism: “We must choose truth over facts.” Don’t forget he created a new phrase ‘economic intercourse.” He once said to a questioner: “I think I have a much higher IQ than you.” The candidate slips into self- aggrandization: he claimed to have graduated in the top ten percent of his law school class. In fact he was 76/85; the top half of the bottom 10%. He explained the misstatement: “I exaggerate when I’m angry, but I’ve never gone around telling people things that aren’t true about me.” That gets us to the Breakfast Club statements by Biden. He added to the “you ain’t black comment” this gem: “Take a look at my record, man. I extended the Civil Rights Act for 25 years. I have a record second to none. The NAACP endorsed me every time I’ve run. Take a look at the record.” The NAACP quickly issued a correction of his puffery; The NAACP said it never endorsed Joe Biden because it “never endorses candidates for political office at any level.” His remark on the coronavirus is timeless: “We have to take care of the cure, that will make the problem worse, no matter what.” He said on the Obama economic plan: “ If we do everything right, if we do it with absolute certainty, there’s still a 30 percent chance we’ll get it wrong.” Then comes his math problem. His comment on Senator John McCain is a classic: “Look, John’s last minute economic plan does nothing to tackle the number one job facing the middle class, and it happens to be, as Barack says, a three-letter word, JOBS, J-O-B-S.” A few months ago he said at a campaign rally “I’m running for Senator.” Senator Biden dropped out of his first run for the presidency because he plagiarized a speech by a British politician. He mentioned this year that he had an Op-Ed in U.S. News on January 17. It was in USA Today on January 29. What are the odds he didn’t know because a staffer wrote it? He has a classic statement on President Trump: “I just can’t figure the guy [Trump] out. It’s like, I don’t know. It’s like watching a Yo-Yo. I suppose I shouldn’t have said it that way.” Joe said it: “I may be Irish, but I’m not stupid.”
