Joe Biden is the only Presidential candidate from the 2020 election that hasn’t made an appearance on The Breakfast Club, and Charlamagne Tha God is dragging him for it.
The radio personality accused the Democratic front-runner of “avoiding” the show. He went as far as to say that Biden’s “Black surrogates” are keeping the distance. “Why?” MSNBC anchor, Craig Melvin, asked in response to those allegations.
“I really have no idea,” Charlamagne said. “Joe Biden owes Black people his political life, you know what I’m saying? So don’t disrespect that base by not showing up, especially when all of your former opponents did.”
In Charlamagne Tha God’s defense, Sen. Bernie Sanders, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, Sen. Kamala Harris, and former South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg all stopped by the top-rated Hip Hop radio show.
Elsewhere in the interview, The Breakfast Club host revealed that Biden offered to send one of his surrogates last year to represent him for an interview, but Charlamagne declined. “That’s kinda wack if all the other candidates went on themselves and you want to send a surrogate. Who do you think you are?” the 41-year-old said.
The Charleston native admitted that he’s still undecided about who he’s voting for in the next election. But he urged Biden to clearly lay out his “Black agenda” and even suggested that he appoints Harris as his running mate.
“I think Joe Biden fumbles all the time because Joe Biden suffers from old white male entitlement, where he can’t simply say ‘I was wrong’,” Charlamagne speculated. “Or he can’t simply say ‘I’m sorry.’ He can’t say, ‘Hey, you know I thought this way at one time, but now I think a different way.’”
“Black people saved his life the past couple of weeks,” the host concluded.
“His campaign would be dead if it wasn’t for our O.G. Jim Clyburn in South Carolina endorsing him and all those black voters in the South going out and voting for him. Plus, you were the vice president for the first black president. You, in particular, definitely need a Black agenda.”
Do you think it’s necessary for Joe Biden to make an appearance on The Breakfast Club since the former Vice President is riding the coat tail of our forever President Barack Obama who openly embraces Black culture?
