During an in-depth interview with “Breakfast Club” Radio host Charlemagne Tha God on Thursday, Joe Biden defended his record on crime, civil rights and his relationship with the black community. When signing off, Biden made a controversial comment suggesting that if people who cannot figure out whether they are for him or Trump, “then you ain't black.” Biden walked back the comment after criticism on Friday. MSNBC’s Ari Melber reports on the interview and how the “framework beneath this controversy still matters” apart from the “gaffe,” reporting on calls for reforming the Democratic party’s representation and policies. (This interview is from MSNBC’s “The Beat with Ari Melber, a news show covering politics, law and culture airing nightly at 6pm ET on MSNBC. ). Aired on 5/22/2020.

  1. Charlemagne Tha God is a contrarian, NOT a seeker of truth. He doesn’t do this for ratings, or to be funny or be an instigator…he’s that guy that will most often, say the opposite of popular opinion…even if he is wrong.

  2. loved it

  3. It is interesting how MSNBC allows comments on this issue. While over on Fox News, this issue is brought up on 3 different videos and the comments are turned off.

    • Fox knows their viewers will go on this channel to vent. It’s a tactic.

    • @Jim Cauchon 😭😭😭❄️❄️❄️

    • @Dizzy Duke DD. No rant here..Joe is URBAN SLIME..URBAN KRYPTONITE…does only what he has to do and says only what he has to say (including that bs faux black voice inflection thing like gore to turn on the urban masses..its tired and old like him..time to bail on this guy..and yes, its time for Pres Obama to hammer him on twitter, pulling his support)

    • @Jim Cauchon ‘You don’t have to do this Joe…’ Obama knew it was a train wreck waiting to happen. Anyone who has spent five minutes with Biden knows his brain is melting and it wasn’t that great to start with. Today I watched some pre-announcement videos of Biden, about a year ago. He was far more lucid and coherent than he is here or in recent appearances (which have been laughably bad). His dementia is real, it’s progressing fast and he’ll be lucky to not need a full time chin wiper by November. Is this truly the best we can do?

    • @Jim Cauchon
      Shut up, slime! He will be your president in January. Whether you like it or not. And your precious Republican Senate will be gone, as well. So get your snowflake tears ready.

    Joe Biden’s new campaign slogan: “You Don’t Know Me” 😂

    • With a big fake smile. Uck.

    • U dont know me, originated as a black saying, Biden be tryna b a little tooo much like a black person. A lot like when he was campaigning in North, South Carolina? trying to get black voters on his side so he lied and said he got put in jail when he went to see Mandela after he got out of prison, which his staff members later changed to, he got separated from his party, lol not quite the same as jail but he was trying to impress the black people so you know it’s a justifiable lie in what remains of his mind

    • Well actually his campaign slogan is “Unite the Country” and a huge majority of Americans in several polls think he can do that unlike Trump.

    • While Trump’s the devil we know–double-triple Uck

    • Jordan who running against Drump wouldn’t use that as a campaign slogan?? If you believe in polls after the last election then you probably believe in Santa Claus

    It’s funny how they show context when it’s Biden.

  6. New Slogan for Biden…. “You ain’t black enough” for democrats.

    Nothing wrong with that

    Ari, thanks for admitting that the corporate media gives softball interviews to Biden @ 3:55.

    MSNBC, why not ask Jim Clyburn & Barack Obama about Biden’s comment? After all, they did endorse Joe Biden.

  9. Just because your black does not mean you speak for all black people. Black voters don’t follow Hip hop artist ,music and it’s Ife styes . Biden represents the black voters ,this show ,host continues stereotyping my community.

    It wasn’t tense… the Breakfast Club always has contentious interviews…

    • I watched the whole thing – it was tense. Joe practically yelled for the whole thing. He has no filter left, no awareness of how he’s coming off. He lapsed into jive a few times. Ugh. Just ugh. He’s used to this spiel working on people, sorta like ‘Hey man, I thought you liked me…’

  11. c’mon man! I’ll decide if your black or not. here’s your hot sauce. now you get back out in that field.

    That IS a different mindset! It’s return to what was.
    That kind of leadership will definitely return us to where we were… but is that were we want to BE?

    The Federal Government has been hollowed out. It must be rebuilt, the foundation is all that’s left.
    Who will be allowed to participate in that rebuilding? Who will benefit once it is done?
    That’s what this election is ALL ABOUT.👏

  13. Who said there were good people on both sides in Charlottesville?

  14. We all knew this was going to happen, that Biden would stick his foot in it. Yet Democrats wanted him over Sanders. We’re going to watch Biden over the months until election day constantly putting his foot in his mouth and providing cannon fodder to the Trump campaign. This election is too important and still too close for him to mess it up like this.

  15. Biden said do you even realize what plantation you on?! 🤣🤣🤣

  16. I think Biden would be a real president. At this point that’s enough.

  17. He knew after people started talking about his words and he admitted he was wrong. He didn’t call it fake news.

  18. Any man, even in jest, who calls himself a God, is a fool, with all caps. Therefore this guy can’t possibly speak or inquire wisely for me. Just sayin’
