Well, it's time to play our favorite game. If Joe Biden were a Republican, this would be an election killer, but he's a Democrat. He's "politically black," whatever that means, so he can get away with saying that if you don't support him, you're not really a member of that community. Yeah, some old white guy is lecturing black voters and pretty much saying he's blacker than they are if they support Trump. This is the Twilight Zone. This is Joe Biden unplugged. It's not pretty. And this was uttered over a virtual town hall. Imagine a debate with President Trump on a national stage and he said this nonsense. Well, first, Trump would have a field day.

Biden made these remarks when it was time for New York radio host Charlemagne tha God to ask a question. Charlemagne has been brutally honest with his guests on the show he co-hosts, "Breakfast Club," calling out top Democrats like Sen. Elizabeth Warren and former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg.

Of course, there was a Biden "hey, Black" defense league that came out, saying this remark was a joke, that there was a difference between racially and politically black, etc., all of which is progressive nonsense. Then again, you all know that white Democrats have a lifelong pass on being racist or sexist. Hell, they even give their side a pass when one of their ilk is accused of rape. So, you all know the game here, and leave it to former ESPN writer and social justice warrior Jemele Hill to defend the remarks.

"The issue wasn't what Joe Biden said, because it was accurate. The issue was that it came from Biden. It also was clearly a joke that didn't land. But I'm wondering where all this outrage was yesterday when y'all president declared his public devotion to a Nazi sympathizer," she tweeted.

That last part was a dig at Henry Ford. Yet, the replies to this tweet were quite something. No, these folks aren't Trump supporters, but a lot of folks were plenty offended by what Biden said. Many noted that black voters can be upset about multiple things at once, that the former vice president's remarks were not accurate, and that blackness has no true political affiliation. Also, Biden has a pretty sordid history of peddling policies that decimated black communities, which the Trump campaign has highlighted.

This is the Left in a nutshell. Democrats can do and say horrible things but have a pass because they're liberal. It's just that simple. If there were no double standards, Democrats wouldn't have any. That has become clearer with every passing day. It's been injected with steroids during the Trump presidency.

Biden eventually apologized for his remarks later today.

Also, Ford vs. Ferrari is an excellent movie. Just putting it out there.
