I just saw that on Rising and did a search for the Breakfast club interview and wow it's a doozy. Biden says that the polls show that he is beating Trump big time and Charlamagne said that the polls showed that Hillary was beating Trump in 2016 too and how'd that work out.

There are tons of articles out there and many are calling for the DNC to pull Biden for what he said. Watch the video and see how condescending he is all through it.

"WTF..." added Virginia Republican congressional candidate Jeffery A Dove Jr. "Because I don't support your failed policies. Things like the '94 crime bill, Obamacare, and others, 'I ain't black' based on Joe Biden's words. That is basically saying the Dem party owns me because of skin color." You can watch below, starting around 16:17.

Come on Man! Get a life!!!!

@snoopydawg

Has anyone watched this at its source? Biden is so hostile all through the interview and has said so many condescending things to Charlemagne and to blacks in general. I am white and refuse to vote for anyone that has made my life harder and Biden is number one in my book because of the policies he wrote and pushed to get passed. So I do not understand why anyone from any race would vote for him. Biden, Obama, Clinton were D presidents that screwed the working class as much as any R president if not more and yet they have gotten a complete pass.

to the "the stable genius"? 'Charlamagne tha god', who is black and the interviewer said, there is nothing stable about that genius.

I did not understand that, but remembered that I had read here somewhere the expression of a reasonable stable genius. Here:

Gëzuar!!
from a reasonably stable genius.

So, who is the stable genius and why is he stable ? Who is the reasonably stable genius and why is that one reasonably? I am looking for the unreasonably stable AND the unreasonably unstable genius. Please help me finding them!

I am more and more feeling unstable and unreasonably dumb and need to take a nap in order not to faint.

And if the Americans just would be so kind and let us know their last names? There are so many Joe men out there and I constantly get confused to which Joe you refer to in your comments. There are so many Johnny men as well, one can't read, the next one is disgusted and ... the third one is pissed off ... and me ...

I take a hike now... I know some people have buttons and might feel I have pushed them.

@snoopydawg It appeared Biden used a stump speech aimed at blacks to monopolize the conversation in an effort to avoid having to answer too many questions.

Overall, I found Biden's attitude extremely condescending and arrogant. But then I am not black, so I cannot speak for those who are. So here are a few comments from blacks on Twitter.

This guy is one of my favorites to follow on Twitter. End Left vs Right it's time for workers to unite @100_Disable_vet His commentary on everything is so spot on.

And finally, a poll from the Breakfast Club. Edit to add, the results will not show up in the tweet unless you vote. So here are the results at the time I embedded the tweet. Almost 90% voted "Wait, what no" and 10% voted "Absolutely." Just under 78,000 people had voted at the time I copied this poll.

There was more, but this was getting long. Also there were tons of similarly scathing comments made by non-black posters. Based upon my feed, no one gave Biden a pass.

Thanks! Arrogance was on display in the interview and I’m absolutely stunned that people can forgive him for what he said. As I said im not black, but he did too much damage to my life to consider voting for him. But I never got sent to prison from his legislation. How many people are spending the rest of their lives in prison for stealing bread or something just as asinine because of the 3 strikes law?

Trump: "if you vote for Biden you ain't no white person".

Biden sorta did the same with the Teamsters during Obama years. He gave a rousing speech trying to shame Teamsters during one of their conventions if they voted Republican. About a month later, Obama's Commerce secretary allowed barely regulated Mexican trucks onto all of America's highways. This was a very hot button issue for the Teamsters.

I don’t think it’s inappropriate at this point to at least consider a different option now. Not Bernie- he had a fair chance and lost- but someone other than this walking gaffe machine who can’t go two months without stepping on his own dick.

So a "different option" other than Bernie...includes the Green Party?
Somehow I think Hillary is the other option.

We all know Joe has a stuttering problem. Clearly that’s what happened here.

/s

(To add a little substance to my snark, between this and dissing Stacey Adams the other day, Biden is sending a middle finger to African Americans. Clearly he is banking on TINA because that’s what the Dems have done for decades. It’ll be interesting to see how this plays in the older AA population. Maybe they’ve already written the youth, who Bernie connected with, off.)

@Dr. John Carpenter Stacey Abrams the other day.

I also missed where the humbly-named "Charlamagne the God" objected to Joe's comment. Did he immediately understand it, coming from a black person's perspective (I ask sincerely, being a person of the white persuasion). Or did he fail to stand up for black folks by not calling it out, as white person Krystal Ball seems to suggest? And, btw, thanks Krystal for letting us know, from your expert perspective, how this should be received in the black community.

Is it too late already, with this half-day story, to invite Symone Sanders on for a feisty rebuttal? Probably. Today was the day for that. When they return from the holiday weekend on Tues, they will have moved on to the next criticism/outrage du jour against Biden/the DNC/Dems. I suspect Krystal and her co-host conservative prefer to just rant on their radar, with no one around to challenge them. So much easier that way and they come away unscathed.

There is no justice. There can be no peace.

@TheOtherMaven any "dissing"or "dangling". If it were so, it would have been major headlines, easily drowning out his latest gaffe. An apology tour by Joe and a fierce clarification that she really really is being considered. Hasn't happened, so I'm assuming this is another misinterpretation.

As for Klobbachair, the female Tim Kaine, I doubt it. And it would be as effective a pick as TK. The vetting is probably just political theater and to reward her for dropping out of the race and endorsing him. Gov Whitmer is likely on Joe's short list, but if Klobbachair is on it, she's probably behind her in the #5 or 6 slot, meaning she's a a bit of a long shot.

Re Stacey Abrams, I go back and forth, probably more back than forth. I'm not sure who she is ideologically, and maybe she doesn't either. A thin political resume, and not much seasoning on the national stage. But analysts I respect tout her potential to enhance the AA turnout, which is the area that doomed Hillary last time, and turnout from the D base is everything. Definitely a better VP pick than Klobbachair.

Is there a reason that you didn't watch any of the videos posted here to find the answer to your question or do you just want us to answer if for you?

In other words no criticism of democrats is allowed? Well MSDNC and CNN fit that bill if you want to see see someone fluff up the utter failing of democrats.

Also on your Stacy Adams question have you tried to find out what happened or are we supposed to answer that question for you too? Gawd made search engines for a reason.

@Dr. John Carpenter

get you a scolding from the dawg faced pony soldiers. But in this case what Biden said was JUST a gaffe and when he says things like this in COMES FROM A POSITION OF LOVE....seriously wtf does that even mean? And if you're black you owe your vote to Biden even though he seriously needs to step up for the black community that saw almost every economic issue get worse during Biden/MyBoss' tenure.

But if you're white you owe you vote to Biden too because of Trump and to stop McConnell from appointing unlimited right wing judges to the federal court. Well then if McConnell needs to be stopped why did so many democrats vote for the most recent one?

I posted this in last night's EBs:

This was not the first time DiFi voted for a judge and let's not forget that Schumer has let McConnell fast track them without getting anything in return except to let dems go home early to fundraise. If democrats are not standing up against Trump's agendas and democrat won't even do a thing about the many things he is doing with executive orders then why the hell should anyone vote for them? Especially since they supported the worst policies of that Obama did? F that idea because it is just grade A BS! BTW lots of diaries today on how the GOP only bailed out the banks and big businesses while there was not one mention that the first CARES act passed the senate 96-0. Another BTW Romney is pushing to gut social security and there are at least 5 democrats that have signed on to support the bill. One of course is JOE F MANCHIN and DOUG JONES that only one his election because blacks came out in droves to vote for him. How is it that they don't know that Jones has voted to gut their rights to get loans from banks? Anyone think that if Biden wins he will reverse that? Me neither.

One tweet reply to Symone telling us that Biden said that in JEST was, amazing how a black women was sent to clean up after a powerful white man. Damn now doesn't that say a lot about how Symone has been covering up for the things Biden says and for his record of making black lives worse throughout his career? Symone is turning a blind eye to his record and what he has done to the black community. From saying that people are in prison because they can't read because their parents were lacking to black parents need to put on records to be better parents. And many other defamatory statements he has made about blacks.

BTW Biden was on the TV news and said again that he WILL NOT support MFA. Nope it will never ever happen here. Way to pull a Hillary. But he did say that if people can't afford the ACA they can buy into Medicaid and then they will have ACCESS to health insurance. Hey, Joe, I have access to a $500 million yacht right now. My problem is that I CAN'T AFFORD IT you doofus a'hole.

Popular with blacks (even to this day) and both have barely concealed contempt for them. Bill Clinton even told Ted Kennedy re: Barack: "A few years ago, this guy would have been getting us coffee," the former president told the liberal lion from Massachusetts, according to the gossipy new campaign book, "Game Change."

Biden called Barack, clean and articulate.

Yet...and yet, they can't shake black love, no matter how very hard they try. And boy do they try.

My prediction? The Breakfast Club is very popular amongst young blacks. They can't stand Biden. Now the black (women) baby-boomers are another story. They could care less about a Breakfast Club. So this Biden-bashing in hopes of unsticking the black community from these aforementioned racists, will have no effect. The baby-boomers (blacks also) love Biden's old azz.

@longtalldrink of the old Bill Clinton strategy where he would insult minorities to their face knowing they would still back him. Sister Souljah anyone?

Speaking to Jesse Jackson, Sr.'s Rainbow Coalition in June 1992, Clinton responded both to that quotation and to something Souljah had said in the music video of her song "The Final Solution: Slavery's back in Effect" ("If there are any good white people, I haven't met them").[5] "If you took the words 'white' and 'black,' and you reversed them, you might think David Duke was giving that speech," said Clinton.

Joe Biden has apologised for saying that if African Americans “have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black”, a remark which prompted a storm of controversy and fierce attacks from supporters of the president.

“I shouldn’t have been such a wise guy,” Biden said on a call with the US Black Chambers, an African-American business group, which was added to his public schedule. “I shouldn’t have been so cavalier.”

Biden also said he would never “take the African American community for granted”.

So Symone was it still just a jest?
