President Biden has a problem, and his name is Charlamagne Tha God, co-host of the massive radio show “The Breakfast Club,” who, by the way, is no Trump supporter.
In early January, First Lady Jill Biden sat down with MSNBC host Mika Brzezinski and asked if President Biden, 81, can handle a second term.
“He can do it,” she said.
“I see Joe every day. I see him out, you know, traveling around this country. I see his vigor. I see his energy. I see his passion every single day,” the first lady said.
Charlamagne was asked if he agreed with Jill Biden’s claims about Joe’s “vigor.”
“No,” he said and then began to laugh.
“I get it because, you know, we’re stuck with what we got, right? Like, I think that the Republican Party should move away from Donald Trump. And I think that the Democratic Party should move away from Joe Biden. But we’re stuck with what we got,” Charlamagne told Fox News in an interview.
“So, I mean, she has to be optimistic. I mean, she has to say those things. What is she going to say? Like, ‘Oh… I don’t think he’s going to make it through four years. You know, I think he’s going to drop dead after 2.’ Like, I mean, what is she supposed to say?” he said.
“Personally, I don’t see that vigor. And I don’t think a lot of other Americans see that vigor anyway,” he continued.
However, he then went on to say that he believes Biden will win and that Trump is too scary. However, then he switch back and wondered if either ticket is “winnable.”
“That’s really the conversation- is Joe Biden and Kamala Harris still a winnable ticket? I think Republicans should be asking themselves that, too. Is Donald Trump still a winnable ticket?” Charlamagne said. “I know the polls say right now he’d beat up Joe Biden in a general election. But I don’t know. I really, truly don’t know. So to answer your question, uh, no. He doesn’t look full of vigor like his wife says. Not to me, anyway.”
“They come around and they court you, and they tell you sweet nothings and tell you all the things that you know you want to hear. But once you get in a relationship with each other, they don’t really back up a lot of those promises,” he said.
He then went on to bash Trump but once again shifted back to discuss how he is expanding his footprint in podcasts and kickstarted a network called Reasoned Choice Media, which welcomes all viewpoints.
“Don’t think that this is a platform that is going to be another liberal echo chamber,” Charlamagne told Fox News. “We’re gonna have hosts that are conservative. And we’re just going to hope that some real dialogue can start happening in this country. We need both sides telling their truths. And people, us, should be able to hear from both sides and make a choice on who they want to support.”
It’s interesting that the radio powerhouse took a swipe at the First Lady; however, note that what he said is what Biden is hoping for.
Biden can’t run on his record because it’s terrible, but despite even Charlegange having a poor opinion of him, he’s voting for Biden.
Orange man is bad.
That’s what Biden is banking on.
