Representative Jim Klyburn, a top African American legislator in Congress and a longtime friend of Joe Biden, admitted that he was “scared” of the former vice president’s “not in the black.”
“I’m afraid, there’s no question about it,” said Clyburn, the House majority whip; He said on ABC’s “The View” on Tuesday.
South Carolina Democrat Biden’s comment – widely slandered by President Trump, his allies and many Democrats – is a mistake.
“They come out a little wrong, and that’s what happened here,” he said of the former deputy head of the caf பா.
“At this point, Joe didn’t do what I expected him to do, but I will say this. In comparison to Joe Biden, I go about my business every day, not the Almighty. He is not a perfect person. I think there should be, comparing candidates with each other, not with the Almighty, ”said Clyburn.
Glyburn endorsed Biden’s presidential election ahead of South Carolina’s primary election in February, a major blow to the campaign to attend Super Tuesday.
Biden made this mistake during an interview on the nationally integrated radio show “The Breakfast Club” last Friday.
He and host Charlamagne God were talking about whether Biden would choose an African-American running mate when Biden tried to cut the interview.
“Do you have any further questions?” Biden asked Charlamagne. “Well, I mean, if you’re having trouble finding that for me or for Trump, you’re not black.”
“This has nothing to do with Trump,” Charlemagne said. “It has something to do with what I want for my community.”
Biden later retracted the comments, saying he was “very guarded.”
A Interview with CNN Biden, who aired Tuesday, made some allegations against Charlemagne.
“Well, first of all, you know, I – that’s a mistake, number one. I smiled as he questioned me, and I shouldn’t have been such a smart man. He’s a smart guy, and I kindly responded, ”Biden said.
