Biden says Charlamagne Tha God was being a ‘wise guy’ with his questioning

Former Vice President Joe Biden received heavy criticism after comments about African American voters on “The Breakfast Club”, a popular radio morning show. When host Charlamagne Tha God suggested to Biden that he might have more questions for him before the fall election, Biden pushed back, saying, “Well, I tell you what, if you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black.”

Biden apologized for those comments, but appears to have had a change of heart, calling the host a “wise guy” in an interview with CNN.

“First of all, it was a mistake — No. 1. And I was smiling when he was asking the question. I shouldn’t have been such a wise guy to him. He was being a wise guy, and I responded in kind,” Biden told CNN’s Dana Bash. “I shouldn’t have done that. It was a mistake.”
