Joe Biden committed one gaffe on camera that could be the final nail in his coffin
Joe Biden was having a good run in the Presidential election.
Biden was leading in the polls, but his momentum just came to a screeching halt.
And Joe Biden committed one gaffe on camera that could be the final nail in his coffin.
Joe Biden may be leading in the polls, but many Democrat Party strategists understand that Biden has an enthusiasm problem with younger voters and especially young black voters.
To cure that problem, Biden’s campaign arranged an interview with popular radio host “Charlamange tha God” on his Breakfast Club on Hot 97.1FM in New York City.
The interview turned disastrous when Charlamagne asked Biden about his disastrous record on issues pertaining to the black community and Biden claimed that if Charlamagne couldn’t figure out if he was for Trump or Biden then he “ain’t black.”
.@JoeBiden: "If you have a problem figuring out whether you're for me or Trump, then you ain't black." @cthagod: "It don't have nothing to do with Trump, it has to do with the fact — I want something for my community." @breakfastclubam pic.twitter.com/endvWnOIV2

With one comment Biden erased 1.3 million black Americans who voted for President Trump in 2016.
A 78-year-old white man told blacks who thought different than him they were not authentically black.
The backlash was swift.
South Carolina Senator Tim Scott wrote, “Joe Biden’s comments are the most arrogant and condescending thing I’ve heard in a very long time. I am offended, but not surprised.”
President Trump is trying to win a greater share of the black vote in 2020.
Joe Biden is struggling to motivate young black voters to turnout for him.
Biden’s gaffe will work against him on both of those counts.
