They really feel like, ‘Hey, Black males, Black ladies, they’re our most loyal voting bloc, and so they present up for us it doesn’t matter what.’ And I believe that that’s one thing that he in all probability stated as a result of he was listening to different folks round him say that… It may need been stunning to listen to, however he didn’t say something that people didn’t already know or people didn’t already really feel like hey, the Democratic Celebration takes the Black vote without any consideration.”

Hey, it’s cool to pardon all people that’s in jail on a federal degree for easy possession. However guess what? There may be no person in jail on a federal degree with easy, easy possession. You’re nonetheless the president. Should you actually needed to, you would’ve with the stroke of a pen expunge so many alternative data and let so many individuals out on a federal degree when you actually needed to take it there.”
“They volunteer these lies. I say this on a regular basis. They volunteered to say, ‘Hey, we’re going to do that. We’re going to try this.’ After which they get in workplace and may’t get issues executed. Properly, why volunteer to lie, ?” he added.
Through the interview, Charlamagne lamented that Biden is the Democrats’ “most secure wager” going into 2024 however wasn’t assured sufficient to say he would beat Trump in a rematch.

I imply, the truth that Biden remains to be their most secure wager, ugh. I believe that’s unhappy, too.”

What’s going to make them suppose that he can’t win a nationwide election? Sorry to inform y’all, man. I’m from the south. I’m from South Carolina. Extra of the nation is extra like Florida than we might wish to consider.”
