President Donald Trump stopped to speak with the press as he was leaving the White House on Thursday. “I just saw that horrible clip of Joe Biden,” the president said. “He totally insulted and disparaged the black community. You’ll see it. Everyone will see it.” In fact, Biden’s new racist remark is so outrageous, many political pundits are saying: “It could cost him the election.” Don’t miss this.
It’s well-known that the Democrats cannot afford to lose the support of African-Americans. If just an additional percent or two votes for President Trump, then Joe Biden will lose the election. Or if more than a few percent just sit out the race and chose not to vote, it will spell disaster for the presumptive Democrat nominee.
President Trump just couldn’t help but inform the press after he saw the video of Biden. This is the kind of comment a campaign doesn’t recover from. Biden compared Hispanic voters to black voters, and he might never live this down.
Fox News gives the context of Biden’s remarks:
During an interview that aired at the convention of the National Association of Black Journalists and National Association of Hispanic Journalists, NPR’s Lulu Garcia-Navarro pressed the presumptive Democratic nominee if he would “re-engage” with Cuba as president, something she suggested would have an impact on Cuban-American voters in Florida.
“What you all know, but what most people don’t know, unlike the African-American community—with notable exceptions—the Latino community is an incredibly diverse community,” Biden said. “With incredibly different attitudes about different things.”
In other words, he’s saying all blacks think alike (with notable exceptions). He’s also suggesting the African-American community isn’t diverse and all have the same attitude.
Joe Biden just said that Latinos have diversity of thought, unlike Black Americans…

The viral video is doing damage to the Biden campaign on social media.
“Former Vice President Joe Biden has asserted that ‘unlike Latinos’ the black community is basically a monolith who all thinks the same,” conservative reporter Cassandra Fairbanks said. “His comment is perfectly in line with his claim that black people who don’t vote for him ‘aren’t really black.’”
Democrats are breathlessly claiming “it’s taken out of context,” as if that would help. We have the context as reported above, and even seasoned journalists and notable critics piled on.
“Can’t. Make. This. Crap. Up.,” Twitchy reports. “Apparently, the African American community isn’t very diverse. At least according to Joe who spent a large portion of his life celebrating Robert Byrd who just so happens to have been an Exalted Cyclops in the Klan. Can you imagine if any Republican said something this stupid?!”
Conservative pundit and podcaster Jesse Kelly can:
“Just so we’re clear, what Joe Biden said in this 15-second video is more racist than anything Donald Trump has ever said in his life. Ever. It’s not even close. If a Republican or corporate CEO said this, he’d have been forced to resign before lunch today.”

“Without a doubt. My jaw fell open when I heard this. And I am immune to almost all political nonsense,” tweeted Matthew Betley, who is a contributor at Townhall.

“Joe! Dude! No. This is worse than ‘poor kids are just as smart as white kids,'” tweeted Rita Panahi, who is an Iranian-Australian reporter.

These are all journalists who are being critical of Biden, who also made a huge gaffe on Wednesday.
“Biden sparked controversy across social media on Wednesday after a preview clip from the interview showed a separate tense exchange with CBS News correspondent Errol Barnett on whether the former VP has taken a cognitive test,” Fox News reports.
“No, I haven’t taken a test. Why the hell would I take a test? Come on, man. That’s like saying you—before you got on this program—you take a test where you’re taking cocaine or not. What do you think? Huh? Are you a junkie?” Biden told Barnett, who is black.
So, the Democrats will try to downplay all of his recent gaffes and say it was all “taken out of context,” but it’s pretty apparent this is one of those moments in a campaign that we will all remember. When you couple this remark with the presumptive nominee’s other racist gaffes, it paints a man who has real issues when it comes to African-Americans.
So, if you support President Trump and want to see him re-elected, make sure this information is shared. Getting this damning information out is one small way we can all make a difference to ensure Joe Biden and his radical Democrat cohorts don’t take back the White House this November.
