Charlamagne tha God rips Biden: ‘Shut the eff up forever’
Charlamagne tha God ripped Joe Biden on his radio show Friday, saying the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee should “shut the eff up forever” to avoid making gaffes.
“The Breakfast Club” host took issue with Biden’s remarks earlier this week when he suggested President Trump is the first “racist” U.S. president.
“How the hell can Donald Trump be the first racist president in a country where 12 presidents before him owned slaves?” asked Charlamagne, the popular African American host on New York’s Power 105.1.
“I really wish Joe Biden would shut the eff 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?” Charlamagne added.
“Joe, you got to hurry up and announce your Black woman VP 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,” he added.
Biden has signaled he would choose a Black woman as his running mate, though he has also said recently that Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D) are also contenders.
Charlamagne had Biden on his show in May, when the former vice president sparked widespread backlash for saying “you ain’t Black” if you vote for Trump.
Biden later apologized for his comments.
