During a live stream from the comfort of his now-infamous basement, Joe Biden declared that “10 to 15 percent” of Americans are “not very good” people. The former Vice President was joined on the stream with Hollywood actor Don Cheadle and a man named Ryan Wilson, both of whom are black. It’s not clear what point Joe Biden was trying to make outside of the point that he clearly made.
The most recent misstep from VP Biden comes just days after his “you ain’t black” comments on the Breakfast Club. Biden was at the very tail-end of an interview on the urban radio show with host Charlamagne Tha God. The host asked Biden to come back to the show because he has more questions. For some odd, unknown reason, Biden decided to make a “witty” quip at that moment. The beleaguered former VP then declared “if you don’t know whether or not you’re for Trump or for me, then you ain’t black!”
Biden made the racially charged comment with the biggest smile on his face. As if, this is a thing that is people in his circle commonly say.
Why Would Anyone Support This Man?
It’s actually quite perplexing that Don Cheadle and Ryan Wilson, two black liberal Democrats, would appear on-stream with Biden after his Breakfast Club comments. What’s not surprising is that he made more ridiculous comments.
Joe Biden has a well-documented history of being a gaffe machine. Combine that with his advanced aged and obvious mental problems, that’s a recipe for disaster. And that’s exactly what happens. A disaster takes place very single time Biden presents himself publicly.
History Repeats Itself
The most recent off-the-wall comments made by former President Biden are no different than the infamous “basket of deplorables” remarks made by Hillary Clinton in 2016. The former Secretary of State declared half of Trump supporters as a “basket of deplorables” during some type of campaign event. She doubled down during the talk and assigned every inflammatory adjective to Trump supporters.
Insulting potential voters is not a winning strategy. 10 to 15 percent of Americans are a lot of people. Fifteen percent of 325 million is about 50 million. If all of those 50 million vote, and they all vote red, that’s about 80% of all Trump voters in 2016. If it’s half and half Democrat/Republican, then that’s half of each voting block. So, it’s not just black voters that are insulted. Or Trump supporters. Everyone is insulted. This is not a winning strategy.
