Joe Biden’s evolving spin for his backfired “you ain’t black” remark in response to radio host Charlamagne The God has taken another turn, and not for the better if you’re Team Biden:
In an interview on @CNN, Biden says Charlamagne Tha God "was baiting me" and "I was referring to him, I wasn't referring to all African Americans."

Somebody on Team Joe should take Biden’s shovel away so he can’t keep digging.
That's actually worse. https://t.co/Gvf99kTvsV

It’s amazing that Biden can still even see straight after stepping on so many rakes.
What the world needs to hear right now is Biden accusing a black man of provoking him into being racist. https://t.co/oL79yr2T4M

ripping yourself away from your handlers, ignoring the yells of secret service, to run to the backyard and take a leaping jump onto the rake https://t.co/ma8jRqhjsn

Charlemagne Tha God was baiting him???
How dare anyone ask a candidate running for president what they will do for the black community if elected….
The arrogance of Joe Biden.

He didn't bait you. He asked you sharp questions.
To now put your ignorance off on another Black man is outrageous. https://t.co/2Beup87b1s

The “cringe” in response to Biden is bipartisan.
