On Fox Across America with Jimmy Failla, Fox News Contributor Jessica Tarlov explains why she thinks Joe Biden’s interview with “The Breakfast Club” may have given African-American votes a reason to want to stay home on Elecion Day.
“Younger journalists, especially African-American ones, were rightfully outraged by it. It was such an unnecessary comment. Charlamagne Tha God is one of the most riveting interviewers because he balances that seriousness and fun and lightness. But it always has the gravity to it. I think that Biden was genuinely thrown by the tone and tenor of the interview and clearly just got mixed up in there. I personally don’t think that he is a racist so I wasn’t willing to go down that rabbit hole of it, but it was definitely a moment where you’re like, are you kidding me? Right. We’re being given a lay-up essentially on a lot of these issues where President Trump has fallen so far short and he’s still really struggling with black voters. Like why can anyone in that key demographic that swings elections for Democrats, throughout history, a reason to say maybe I’ll just stay home? I don’t think they go and vote for Trump, but they could say I don’t really want this.”
