In case you pulled the plug early for the start of the MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND, this past FRIDAY  PREMIERE NETWORKS BREAKFAST CLUB’s CHARLAMAGNE interviewed former U.S. VP and likely Democratic Presidential nominee JOE BIDEN, and things took a wrong turn when BIDEN made an off the cuff remark causing him to apologize later in the day. But that didn’t end the hurt feelings.

According to CNN, towards the end of the 18-minute interview an issue occurred when BIDEN rushed to end their conversation to make way for his wife to use the home studio. A staffer stated that BIDEN needed to go. CHARLAMAGNE said, “You can’t do that to black media!” BIDEN said in response, “I do that to white media and black media because my wife has to go on at 6 o’clock.”

CHARLAMAGNE then told BIDEN that he should come to the studio in NEW YORK CITY for another interview, adding, “We’ve got more questions.”

BIDEN responded, “Well I tell you what, if you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or TRUMP, then you ain’t black.”

CHARLAMAGNE commented, “It don’t have nothing to do with TRUMP. It has to do with the fact I want something for my community.” BIDEN responded, “Take a look at my record, man!”

Biden Apologizes For “Ain’t Black” Comment

USA TODAY reports that BIDEN apologized FRIDAY for comments in an earlier radio interview in which he said black voters who supported President DONALD TRUMP “ain’t black.”

“I should not have been so cavalier. No one should have to vote for any party based on their race, their religion, their background. I’ve never, never, ever taken the African-American community for granted,” BIDEN said on a call with members of the U.S. BLACK CHAMBERS INC., adding he “shouldn’t have been such a wise guy.”
