Clyburn ‘Cringed’ At Biden’s Controversial ‘You Ain’t Black’ Remark


House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn said he “cringed” when he heard presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s controversial remarks “you ain’t black” regarding black voters unsure about whether to support him or President Trump.

“I cringed, no question about that,” Clyburn said during Tuesday’s appearance on ABC’s “The View” when asked about Biden’s remarks he made during a radio show last week. “I know [Charlamagne] very well and I know his job is to push the buttons and he does that very well. In this instance, Joe did not do as well as I had hoped in responding, but I will say this — I go about my business every day comparing Joe Biden to the alternative — not the almighty.”
