Friday on MSNBC’s Deadline, race hustler Al Sharpton tried to salvage presumptive Democrat nominee Joe Biden’s campaign-killing comment to radio host Charlamagne tha God that black voters who don’t support him over the President “ain’t black.”
“Whether you say it in jest or not, no one should qualify who’s going to be black or anything else,” Sharpton said. “I think that’s inappropriate. I think that clearly, the vice president ought to deal with his record. Many of us questioned the Crime Bill. In fact, I marched on it then.
“Eight years this man was vice president and did things that he can concretely point to, including helping President Obama reduce the federal population of inmates by 38,000. He was there. I sat next to him when they announced the whole thing around policing task force. He has a concrete record to run against a man whose own aide Omarosa Manigault… calls him a racist. So deal with the record. Don’t say things in jest that are inappropriate.”
Biden’s remark wasn’t in jest. It was racist, something Trump has never been.
