Former US Vice President Joe Biden speaks during the First State Democratic Dinner in Dover, Delaware, on March 16, 2019.

(CNN)Joe Biden told a popular African-American radio host Friday morning that anyone struggling to decide whether to support him or President Donald Trump in the general election "ain't black." 

The presumptive Democratic nominee's comment came at the end of an at times tense interview with Charlamagne tha God on "The Breakfast Club." 
A staffer interjected that Biden needed to go, and Charlamagne shot back: "You can't do that to black media!"
"I do that to white media and black media because my wife has to go on at 6 o'clock," Biden said, referring to his wife Jill Biden apparently needing to use the broadcast studio they've built in their basement in Delaware as the coronavirus pandemic has knocked Biden off the campaign trail. Glancing at his watch, Biden said, "uh oh, I'm in trouble." 
 
 
 
Charlamagne told Biden that he should come to the studio in New York City for another interview, telling the former vice president that "we've got more questions." 
"You've got more questions?" Biden replied. "Well I tell you what, if you have a problem figuring out whether you're for me or Trump, then you ain't black."
Charlemagne responded, "It don't have nothing to do with Trump. It has to do with the fact, I want something for my community."
"Take a look at my record, man!" Biden shot back.
Biden at times during the 2020 race has quickly become testy when challenged over his record by groups the former vice president believes would fare worse under Trump. In November, he told a protester criticizing former President Barack Obama's record on deportations that "you should vote for Trump." 
The interview was Biden's first appearance on "The Breakfast Club," a popular nationally syndicated radio show broadcast from New York City that other leading Democratic presidential candidates appeared on during the primary. 
Biden's win in the Democratic primary was fueled primarily by his support from African-American voters, particularly older ones, who catapulted him to the win in South Carolina that set the stage for Biden to all but end the race in the following weeks. 
A Quinnipiac University poll released Wednesday found Biden with 81% support among black voters to Trump's 3%. 
"Vice President Biden has spent his career fighting alongside and for the African American community. He won his party's nomination by earning every vote and meeting people where they are and that's exactly what he intends to do this November," senior Biden adviser Symone Sanders said of the interview on Twitter.
She added: "The comments made at the end of the Breakfast Club interview were in jest, but let's be clear about what the VP was saying: he was making the distinction that he would put his record with the African American community up against Trump's any day. Period."
Trump's campaign used Biden's comment to portray him as taking black voters for granted.
Katrina Pierson, a Trump campaign senior adviser, said in a statement that Biden "believes black men and women are incapable of being independent or free thinking."
Trump in 2016 argued that black voters should reject Democrats who he argued had taken their votes for granted and back him, saying, "What the hell do you have to lose?"
Biden has frequently criticized Trump's history of racist comments and actions, which includes questioning former President Barack Obama's citizenship, expressing frustration with immigrants from "s***hole countries" and referring to white supremacist protesters in Charlottesville, Virginia, and counter-protesters by saying there were "very fine people on both sides."
In the radio interview, Biden declined to name people on his list of those being considered for the vice presidential nomination, but said:"I guarantee you, there are multiple black women being considered. Multiple." 
Charlamagne pressed Biden on his role in enacting the 1994 crime bill, which Biden defended, saying Hillary Clinton was "wrong" in 2016 to apologize for it and that Republicans -- had insisted on the inclusion of mandatory minimum sentencing. 
Biden also defended his calls to decriminalize marijuana, rather than legalizing it. He said before legalizing it, he wants to wait and see the results of studies on "what it affects, doesn't affect in long-term development of the brain. And we should wait till the studies are done."
 
"I think we got decades of studies from actual weed smokers though," Charlemagne cut in. 
"Yeah, I do," Biden said. "I know a lot of weed smokers."

Biden needs to drop out of the race. This guy isn't playing with a full deck. I heard Mark Cuban might run. Somebody...

No one drops out when they are winning by default.

 

The only thing Joe needs to do is stay quiet and alive for six months.  He's a lock if he does.

I warned my fellow Democrats that they were picking a loser again. If it's possible to lose it Joe will.

It could be worse, and of course, he'll have a VP.

Surely perpetual race baiter little Miss Marxist will comment in this thread and condemn Biden's blatant racism.

 

Not.😆

I think Democrats are going to be unpleasantly surprised in November. Blacks are either going to stay home or vote for Trump. Trump's prison reform actually means something on the ground.

Plenty of worries. Here he is alienating the African American vote. They told me not to worry when they nominated Hillary.

DNC has a bad habit of supporting the nomination of candidates because it is their turn regardless of whether they can win an election. Pure idiocy.

Since you have 0 control over it, why are you worried about it?

 

Biden can't save us, Trump can't kill us.  The only lesson, which Americans refuse to learn, is stop electing old white men.

 

Until that changes - nothing does.

Or was it Mitt Romney, or Barry Goldwater?  I forget.

I don't have zero control over it; I am a member of the democratic party and in the past was a precinct committee officer. That was during both of Obama's elections and I flatter myself I had some effect on the outcome. Please do not try to convince me that I have no agency leave that to the Republicans.

Why some white people think they know how black people think?

 

Biden is responsible for more black misery than Trump ever was. His voting record on this is abysmal. He still supports criminalizing marijuana. 
 

Biden is a dud and he makes me want to vote for Trump more everyday.
