Former Bernie Sanders campaign co-chair Nina Turner on Friday blasted Joe Biden over the comments -- which he later walked back -- about black voters choosing between him and President Trump in November's election.
Earlier in the day, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee raised eyebrows during an interview with Charlamagne tha God on the radio show "The Breakfast Club" as he defended his record with the black community.
I tell you if you have a problem figuring out whether youre for me or Trump, then you aint black, Biden said.
Turner offered a blistering response to the progressive media outlet Status Coup.
"Pure unadulterated hubris, the taking for granted of the black vote, the insult to us as he tried to quote on quote answer that question in a black vernacular," Turner said. "What other racial or ethnic group in this country has to deal with that kind of foolishness? Not one ... where all of a sudden you change your speech pattern to answer the question too? Too many white politicians have a habit of thinking if they change their speech pattern they're really relating to the black community.
She added, "As I said all along, the black vote must be earned; it is not owned, it is earned. For any white person to think that they are the authority on what is and what is not black is the highest insult."

“like an abused spouse, Blacks will vote for the dems and Biden”
You beat me to it. The blacks still will vote RAT — no matter what.
I hate when people here do what I am about to do to you. I believe Bernie is not out. He "suspended" his campaigning. That means he can take more money, hold delegates and is ready if Biden drops out or dies.
If I am wrong, someone let me know. Again, sorry to be the nitpicking type of s.o.b. I hate.
What a maroon!
Oh, please. Enough with the kvetching. Everyone knows Gropin’ is going to get 105% of the black vote. The ballots have already been filled out. They just need to be trucked to wherever they go to be counted.
I am thinking the black complainers “doth protest too much”
By itself it is an insulting remark. But the real reason these people are “outraged” (Hershel excluded) is that it is true, they are indeed “owned” by the Rat Party. They are now forced to claim they choose for themselves and yet time after time vote Rat only, regardless of how slimy, racist, corrupt and condescending the Democrat candidate is.
I guarantee these offended Democrats are going to enter the polling both and pull the lever for Biden or, if not Biden, whatever Democrat is on the ballot - even if he’s wearing a white hood.
Kamala Harris told me her family in Jamaica just got in a fresh stock of kidnapped human beings to be sold into slavery. Every last one will be a Dem voter someday.
To use a quote attributed to FDR regarding the Nicaraguan strongman Samosa,
“Sure he’s a son of bitch, but he’s *my* son of a bitch”.
It’s not nitpicking to just merely disagree. I have no problem with disagreements, as it’s how we go about disagreeing that matters. And you do raise some good points that are potentially valid, but as of right now he is out. The question is will he full throttle get back in, and as of right now I see no evidence that he will.
The little nerd Chris Wallace on Fox just has a website story listing that he says Trump charge of mail in vote fraud is unsupported.
He is wrong and you are right.
Is there a reason Nina Turner did not call out Biden’s comment as flat out racism ?
Nina Turner is a lying dog-faced pony soldier.
This is new territory you see, and while blacks turned out to vote for Biden in the primaries, many were still troubled by the 94 Crime Bill, 3 strikes law, etc.
Biden’s words about “then you ain’t black” have ended his ability to say the 94 Crime Bill and so on is all in the past.
Like democrat women, blacks are socialists, thenIslamists, then Mexican illegal, and then distant 4th place feminist or black...
I have heard of women litteraly raped in leftist circles but not pursuing because , you know, climbing the ladder of thieving gangs...
I guess if it’s possible that he didn’t know that his son was on the payroll of a foreign government (or two), it’s possible that he doesn’t know that he’s on Trump’s payroll.
You’re right, of course.
Speaking of the return of the living dead candidates, will Biden’s replacement by the DNC decision be Moochelle (”I do not choose to run”—Calvin Coolidge wrote on a note to aides before he ran and won), Oprah (but does she have name recognition?), Cuomo (still holding some popular support far over Trump’s-—77% recently and now dropping somewhat-—by stupid voters in NY) or Hillary herself (”I could beat Trump again”—popular vote total).
What a sorry bunch of losers. All of them can boast “You guys hate Trump-—and I am not Trump. Vote for me.”
Happened to hear Glenn Beck sidekicks say today: Michelle O would not feel motivated to barnstorm around Iowa but if the nomination were offered with 4 weeks to go and all she had to do was give marshmallow question puff interviews by the gushing media 100% in her awe and then accept the presidency over Trump, she might do it. She would be far ahead of Trump and just a shoo in winner in the election. Yipes!
Bill O’Reilly has said on his site that he has talked to insiders himself who know Michelle has had several small groups of Dem Party guys come over and talk to her. So far not interested in the hard work of campaigning.
Just think of what’s still to come from Slow Joe from now til November...
I was gonna say, Leftist Yankees mock White Southerners by putting on a bad Southern accent all the time.
Obama couldn’t say anything without the ‘prompter, Biden says too much.
