Former Vice President Joe Biden suffered a humiliating blow on Thursday when rapper-turned-radio host Charlamagne Tha God granted Biden the dishonorable “Donkey of the Day” award for his recent attempt at “revisionist history,” Fox News reported.
According to Fox, the remarks came after Biden asserted that President Donald Trump is the “first” racist ever to be elected to the nation’s highest office — an assertion that Charlamagne wasn’t buying.
“Never, never, never”
As Breitbart noted, the controversy that sent Biden’s staffers scrambling began Wednesday during an online event with members of the Democrat-aligned Service Employees International Union (SEIU). There, Biden indicated that President Trump is the first and only racist of either party to ever serve in the White House.
“No sitting president has ever done this, never, never, never. No Republican president has done this, no Democratic president,” Biden said of Trump’s alleged racism, according to Fox. “We’ve had racists and they’ve existed, they’ve tried to get elected president, but he’s the first one that has.”
Indeed, just the barest minimum of an understanding of American history would reveal a legacy of slave-owner presidents and leaders who were accosted as racist. But they all seem to have slipped Biden’s mind.
The former VP’s staff soon released a statement attempting to clarify his remarks, as Breitbart noted — but that didn’t satisfy Charlamagne Tha God, who, according to Fox, said boldly on Thursday: “I really wish Joe Biden would shut the ‘F’ up forever and continue to act like he’s starring in the movie A Quiet Place, because as soon as he opens his mouth and makes noise, he gets us all killed, OK?”
“Hurry up,” Joe
According to Fox, Charlamagne also accused Biden on Thursday of engaging in “revisionist history” with “a lie” that “relinquishes America of all responsibility of its bigotry.”
“How are we ever going to atone for America’s original sins if we don’t acknowledge them?” he said, as Fox noted. “How the hell can Donald Trump be the first racist president in a country where 12 presidents before him owned slaves?”
But just because he’s no fan of Biden doesn’t mean Charlamagne is stumping for President Donald Trump. “There’s already so many people who are reluctantly only voting for Joe Biden because he’s the only option and because Donald J. Trump is that trash,” the ex-rapper said, according to Fox.
Near the end of the segment, the host turned back to the Democrat White House hopeful to offer up some advice: “Joe,” Charlamagne said, “you got to hurry up and announce your Black woman [vice president] so I can be enthused about voting for her because I will never be enthused about voting for you, and you know America is a terrible place when Kanye West seems like a viable option.”
