Charlamagne Tha God is a host on the popular Breakfast Club platform on radio, but is also a host on Brilliant Idiots with New York comedian Andrew Schulz. Charlamagne sometimes uses the platform to separate some of his viewpoints without attaching Breakfast Club. So it is no surprise that he addresses the controversial statement from Presidential candidate Joe Biden of “If you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump then you ain’t black.”
It didn’t take long for the comment to go viral as it led to even President Trump mocking him through a t shirt with the statement “You Aint Black”. Charlamagne reacts to the reaction of the comment on his show.
“I knew what the reaction to the line was gunna be,” he starts. “You know when you got something. You just don’t know how big it’s gunna be,” before adding: “You know when you sitting on that gold.”
Charlamagne continued, “I respect honesty, he said what was honestly on his mind. I don’t know what to tell y’all. I saw his team was spinning at as a joke […] If you think an old, powerful, white politician is ever gunna take full responsibility for his fuck ups then you don’t understand how privilege or politics work.”
