On Thursday, radio host Charlamagne tha God said he hoped presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden would “shut the eff up forever.”
During The Breakfast Club broadcast, Charlamagne tha God criticized Biden’s latest comments about President Trump being the first racist elected to the office of the presidency and said his talking was comparable to the characters in post-apocalyptic horror/thriller “A Quiet Place.” In the film, characters who make any noise are hunted by creatures; so they must survive in silence.
“I really wish Joe Biden would shut the eff up forever and continue to act like he’s starring in the movie ‘A Quiet Place’ because as soon as he opens his mouth and makes noise, he gets us all killed, okay?” the host said via Fox News. “There’s already so many people who are reluctantly only voting for Joe Biden because he’s the only option and because Donald J. Trump is that trash.”
Charlamagne tha God did not defend the president, rather he said he and Biden were to blame for the problems currently facing the country.
“Old white male leadership has failed America, and there is nothing worse than an old white male [who] can’t recognize the faults and flaws of other old white males,” he said. “Racism is the American way. Donald Trump is not the first. And sadly, he won’t be the last, right? He’s just more overt with his racism than most presidents in recent times.”
He continued: “How are we ever going to atone for America’s original sins if we don’t acknowledge them? How the hell can Donald Trump be the first racist president in a country where 12 presidents before him owned slaves?”
The radio host then urged Biden to go ahead and announce his running mate so liberals can get excited to vote for his ticket.
“Joe, you got to hurry up and announce your Black woman VP [vice president] so I can be enthused about voting for her because I will never be enthused about voting for you, and you know America is a terrible place when Kanye West seems like a viable option,” he said.
He added per Fox News:
I see black communities all across America catching hell regardless of who is in the White House. People like to bring up coronavirus and how it’s hitting black people the hardest. That’s because we have a bunch of underlying conditions created by systemic racism that have never been fixed.
And like I said before, if you created legislation that hurts, then you have to create legislation that helps. It’s just that simple. Like, the whole system needs to be dismantled and rebuilt, and he’s been a very intricate part of that system, whether you’re talking about, you know, in ‘84 with the mandatory minimum sentences for drug dealers, or you’re talking about ‘86 with the crack laws that gave you more time for crack cocaine than powder cocaine, or you’re talking about the ’94 crime bill, like, he was really one of the people on the front line when it came to the war on drugs and mass incarceration.
