Joe Biden sparked a firestorm on Friday during an interview with Charlamagne tha God on the radio show “The Breakfast Club” as he defended his record with the black community.
“I tell you if you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black,” Biden said.
“If you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black.”
Oh really, Joe.

Fox News and MSNBC covered the dust-up throughout the day. ABC News, CBS News and NBC News all addressed the controversy on their evening programs.
However, CNN’s lack of coverage throughout the day was called out by critics.
Fascinating to watch how the left-leaning cable networks have covered Biden’s “you ain’t black” comment.
CNN hasn’t mentioned it once. pic.twitter.com/InRhcMkTUD

It’s been over 5 HOURS since Biden told Black people they “ain’t black” if they support @realDonaldTrump.
How many times has CNN mentioned his bigoted comment on air?
