Black voters slam Biden’s desperate ‘pandering’ as many shift their support to Trump

The president’s “black this, black that” pitch to rekindle support was hardly sitting well with the target demographic.

Despite playing into identity politics from the onset, President Joe Biden’s demographic-driven narratives have done little to engender support from his target audiences. Now, as the incumbent has seen worsening support among key voting blocs, ramped-up rhetoric has only stood to further eschew once-ready coalitions.

After Fox News host Jesse Watters played a recent clip of the president on “Jesse Watters Primetime,” his guest, Blexit activist Madeline Brame, responded, “I feel like vomiting…for the simple fact that, you know, it’s so insulting and so racist for every other word to come out of his mouth — black this, black that, black this, black that — like the only reason why we made these so-called accomplishments is because of the color of our skin.”

“Has nothing to do with our intellect, has nothing to do with the merits of nothing. It’s only because we’re black that these things are happening. He is so insulting,” she added.

The particular example came as Biden appeared at a Philadelphia boarding school with a hyperbolic hypothetical on the outcome had the majority of those who had breached the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021, been black.

“I don’t think he’d be talking about pardons. This is the same guy who wanted to tear gas you as you peacefully protested George Floyd’s murder,” he had said, referring to former President Trump.

“It’s not gonna fly,” remarked the mother of murdered Afghanistan War veteran Sgt. Hason Correa, a husband and father of three stabbed to death in New York City in Oct. 2018.

Brame, who noted that she had attended former Trump’s rally in the Bronx raised the comparison of community members’ situations now as compared to four years prior and told Watters, “Many of us work, you know, work hard, every day. And when Trump was in office our paycheck would last us at least paycheck to paycheck, right? And we still had a couple of dollars leftover to save, maybe go on a vacation. We certainly didn’t have to worry about not having food in our refrigerator.”

“I’m scared to even start my car in the morning cause it’s gonna cost me $5 to start my car,” she said with a reference to high gas prices averaging around $3.66 in New York state at the time of this post, according to AAA.

The activist wasn’t alone in expressing disfavor for Biden’s pandering as voters criticized the routine election cycle outreach to communities only to be forgotten the morning after the election, like among black voters where polling had shown 92 percent support in 2020 had sunk to around 69 percent for the incumbent now.

“How can anybody black vote for Biden?” asked one black caller who’d phoned into “The Breakfast Club” after Trump was convicted. “The antics that those people take, he goin’ to black cookouts all of a sudden, it’s like a slap in the face. I respect Trump because at least Trump real. He might sound stupid, he’s not articulate, whatever. My quality of life was better under Trump, we didn’t have all these problems at the border under Trump, we didn’t have none of this goin’ on.”
