On Friday, Trump trounced Biden over his dearth of black voter virtuosity.
In other words, when it comes to wooing Black Americans, the guy stinks.
You’ve surely heard of Joe’s gargantuan gaffe, claiming to NPR’s Lulu Garcia-Navarro that Hispanics are diverse, unlike black people:
“And by the way, what you all know — but most people don’t know — unlike the African American community, with notable exceptions, the Latino community is an incredibly diverse community, with incredibly different attitudes about different things. You go to Florida, you find a very different attitude about immigration in certain places than you do when you’re in Arizona. So it’s a very different, very diverse community.”

And, of course, there was Joe’s assertion to deejay Charlamagne Tha God — followed by a million-dollar smile:
For more on both those nuggets, see RedState Editor-at-large Kira Davis’s coverage here.
But we can go back farther than that: Check out my 2019 article “Meet Joe Black: Biden Does His Best to Convince Black People He’s Down – By Insisting He’s Not Even Uncomfortable Around Them.”
Following Thursday’s fail, the President of the United States took to Twitter to bomb Biden to bits:
“After yesterday’s statement, Sleepy Joe Biden is no longer worthy of the Black Vote!”

I have to think the “diverse” remarks have severely hurt Joe’s campaign, particularly since it’s not the first time he’s struck out in similar style.
Still, there were people online willing to go to bat for Biden.
Here’s what Dr. Eugene Gu thinks about Donald Trump’s tweet — and you:
After Trump called black NFL football players “sons of bitches” for taking the knee to fight white supremacy and police brutality, he has not been worthy of votes from any American. Trump is a white supremacist who hurts people of color for racist clout to excite his racist base.

He apologized for his comments. When was the last time you apologized for anything? The correct answer is NEVER.

You are not worthy of a single vote

One user even compared a wall built to protect socialism to a fence at America’s southern border:

Back to Biden’s diversity DOH!, on Thursday night, he/his campaign attempted an apology.
“Earlier today, I made some comments about diversity in the African American and Latino communities that I want to clarify. In no way did I mean to suggest the African American community is a monolith—not by identity, not on issues, not at all. Throughout my career I’ve witnessed the diversity of thought, background, and sentiment within the African American community. It’s this diversity that makes our workplaces, communities, and country a better place.
“My commitment to you is this: I will always listen, I will never stop fighting for the African American community, and I will never stop fighting for a more equitable future.”
Is he bound for demographic glory?
As I relayed Tuesday, younger black Americans are showing a change in attitude compared to their parents and grandparents.
Courtesy of JustTheNews.com:
The data collected from April 2-May 13 by the Democracy Fund + UCLA Nationscape project, an initiative that conducted weekly surveys of thousands of potential voters for nearly a year, found that 29% of percent of black voters ages 30-44 and 21% ages 18-29 have a “very favorable” or “somewhat favorable” view of President Trump. This compares to just 14% of black voters 45-64 and 9% of those 65 and older.
And here’s something to really make Biden question things–
Ladies and gentlemen, I give you MAGA Hulk and the Ain’t Blacks:
Amidst the scorn, and despite being called c**ns and Uncle Tom's, a few of us black Trump supporters took to the front to head a collective march thru the streets of Los Angeles, as we all showed support for America, Trump, and our police. #liberalsworstnightmare #BLACKLIVESMAGA pic.twitter.com/d5BMF3sSFl

How many people who Ain’t Black will be pulling the lever for Donald Trump in November?
One thing’s for certain: On Thursday, he sure didn’t ingratiate himself.
And Trump is definitely not gonna let him forget it.
