In an attempt to defend his racist remark saying black voters "ain't black" if they vote for President Trump, Joe Biden has come up with a lame excuse.
Biden claimed that the radio host was being a "wise guy."

According to Biden, "He was being a wise guy and I responded in kind."
Whatever you say.
During the interview, Biden told the host, "If you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t Black."
This was after the host suggested that he would like to meet with Biden to ask more questions about his platform.
That sounds like a legitimately engaged voter to us, not like a "wise guy." There's nothing wrong with voters wanting to learn more about candidates and their platforms!
This is exactly why President Trump hosts so many rallies and speaks freely to the press!
He wants the country to have access to him, his policies, and his philosophies.
But apparently that makes you a "wise guy," if Biden has anything to say about it.

Can you imagine the outcry if President Trump called a black radio host a "wise guy?"
To the far-left liberals, it would be another "example" of Trump being a racist.
But so far, Biden's "wise guy" comment has gotten hardly any attention after his "you ain't black" controversy.
Fox News confirms that Biden called Charlamagne tha God a "wise guy":
Joe Biden suggested Tuesday that Charlamagne tha God was also being a "wise guy" during their interview Friday when the former vice president made his controversial "you ain't black" remark.
During an interview Tuesday on CNN, Biden acknowledged he made a "mistake" last week in making the comment, in which he referred to black voters who have yet to decide whether to support him or President Trump in the 2020 election. He walked back the comment later in the day, saying he should not have been so "cavalier" and acted like a "wise guy."
However, the presumptive Democrat presidential nominee told CNN he wasn't the only "wise guy" during "The Breakfast Club" interview.
"First of all, it was a mistake -- No. 1. And I was smiling when he was asking the question. I shouldn't have been such a wise guy to him. He was being a wise guy, and I responded in kind," Biden told CNN's Dana Bash. "I shouldn't have done that. It was a mistake."
The former vice president went on to insist that he has "never, never" taken the black vote for granted, saying he's "worked like the devil for it and have to earn it every time."
Biden faced swift backlash across the political landscape, from the Trump campaign to progressives who had previously backed Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt.
BET co-founder Robert L. Johnson said Biden should apologize to "every black person he meets."
This is just the beginning, folks.
The more Joe Biden goes out in public, the more mistakes and verbal gaffes like this he'll continue to make.
Biden was largely protected during the Democratic primaries because the attention was on Sanders and Warren.
But you can bet that Trump's campaign will not ignore the terrible things that Joe Biden says!
Black leaders are still reeling from Biden's offensive comments.
Even Representative Clyburn, who is a staunch Biden supporter, appeared on The View and said that Biden's "you ain't black" comment made him "cringe."
And this is coming from a HARDCORE DEMOCRAT!
According to ABC News:
South Carolina Rep. James Clyburn weighed in on presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden suggesting that African American voters who support Trump “ain’t black,” saying he “cringed” when he heard the comments
“I cringed, no question about that,” Clyburn said in an interview with “The View” Tuesday morning.
"In this instance, Joe did not do as well as I hoped in responding, but I will say this, I go about my business every day comparing Joe Biden, to the alternative, not the Almighty. He is not a perfect person. None of us are. So what my decision now is to determine who I feel should be the next president of the United States, and I do that by comparing the candidates to each other, not to the Almighty,” Clyburn said.
Biden came under fire Friday for comments he made during an interview with “The Breakfast Club” radio program, in which he quipped that if African American voters support President Trump over him in November, they aren’t “black.”
"Well, I’ll tell you what, if you have a problem figuring out whether you're for me or Trump, then you ain't black," Biden told radio personality Charlamagne tha God, who hosts the program, which is particularly popular among black millennials, a voting bloc the former vice president is hoping to woo.
