Biden Tries to Shift Blame After His "You Ain't Black" Comment

Leave it up to a Democrat to try and blame someone else for something that you yourself said.

That's exactly what former Vice President Joe Biden is doing following his interview with "Charlamagne Tha God" on his program "The Breakfast Club".

He's trying to blame Charlamagne for the comment he made instead of just manning up and taking the blame himself.

He explained his viewpoint in an interview with CNN.

“Well, first of all, um, you know, I, uh, it was a mistake, number one,” Biden said. “And I was smiling when he asked me the question.”

“I shouldn’t have been such a wise guy with him,” Biden continued. “He was being a wise guy and I responded in kind, I shouldn’t have done that.”


Biden was widely slammed for his remarks by prominent members of the black community, including athletes, business owners, politicians, and celebrities.

Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) said during an interview on Fox News: "Well, I’m not going to whitewash his arrogant, insensitive, painful comment that he made,” Scott said. “It tells me that he has taken the black vote for granted and he will continue to do so. This is not the first time we have had rhetoric from the vice president that has been offensive."

“It was Senator Kamala Harris that called attention to vice president Biden’s ignorance on the issue of school busing,” Scott continued. “It was Senator Cory Booker who called him onto the carpet for the crime bill. So, his record has been called into question by his own party. The thing I hear right now from his party, however, crickets. It is quiet as a church mouse right now on the left. I’m tired of hearing people put democrats on a perch when it comes to offensive, racially offensive comments and they hold Republicans to a very different standard.”
