Diamond And Silk On ‘Race Baiter’ Biden: ‘We’ve Moved On From Charlottesville’
Fox Nation personalities Diamond and Silk attacked former Vice President Joe Biden Friday morning. Appearing on Fox & Friends, Lynnete Hardaway (Diamond) and Rochelle Richardson (Silk) accused Biden of trying to exploit race in order to control Americans.
“First of all, let’s make one thing clear. He is not the racial healer. He is a race baiter,” Hardaway said. “If he thinks he’s going to win an election by attacking our President and playing the race card, he has another thing coming. You know, he is not trying to capture the soul of America. He is trying to control the American people.”
Host Steve Doocy asked why Hardaway used the term ‘race baiter’.
“Because whenever you take and you exploit what happened in Charlottesville and you start playing the race card, it makes you a race baiter. We’ve moved on from Charlottesville. People are thriving in this country. People love jobs. People love their prosperity. And if you know this, Joe Biden had no ideas.”
“You know why? Because he don’t have any ideas. There’s no new ideas when it comes to him. He’s from that old school politics. And people are tired of that.”
“And race baiting is something that the Democrats do that’s part of the Democrat tactics is to race bait to keep everybody scared in the pain of their ancestors,” Richardson added.
The pair then suggested that Biden’s favorable numbers with African-Americans wouldn’t hold out, even seeming to suggest that Hillary Clinton didn’t win African-American support. Though she won fewer black votes than Obama, she still beat Trump overwhelmingly.
“Let me tell you something, African-Americans, black people are waking up,” Hardaway said. “They are tired of these race baiting tactics. The only time you see the Bidens and Bernie Sanders is when they need a vote. They’re tired of it. People love their prosperity. They’re going to be voting for 45 instead of a taking a nose dive when it comes to these Democrats.”
