Joe Biden stunned the country when he said that, if a black person was supporting Donald Trump, then “you ain’t black.”
After huge backlash from both sides of the aisle–and an apology from Biden–the Democrats are now, apparently, denying it even happened.
In an interview on Fox News with anchor Bret Baier, Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Tex.), who is black, denied that the comments happened.
“I mean, you would say to somebody in your district who’s an African American, who perhaps enjoyed the historically low African American unemployment, the support for historically black colleges and universities, the prison reform and justice reform, and they said, you know what, I’m going to vote for Donald Trump,” Baier said. “They are not less black tonight, right?”
“I don’t believe anyone who saw that exchange would in any way suggest that anyone is blacker, blackest, or less black,” Lee told him. “That exchange was in jest, but on second thought, it could have been spoken differently.”
“And what I would say to you is that that was not what the vice president said in terms of those words,” Lee lied.
Despite the left’s attempts to make Biden’s baffling comments disappear, the Trump campaign seems to be hell-bent on remembering.
By Friday afternoon, the Trump team already had shirts for sale on their campaign website, with the hashtag #YouAintBlack.
