Biden, Man Known for Racist Comments, Compares Himself to Lincoln
Maybe invoking Lincoln’s memory wasn’t the best move. President Joe Biden’s inaugural address Wednesday made a stab at calling forth the better angels of American history, but his explicit mention of the 16th president didn’t just remind his countrymen of one of the most eloquent orators to ever grace the national stage. It also brought to mind Biden’s own troubled past when it comes to statements on racial matters — and they’re not all that long ago. It was only in May, remember, that Biden told popular New York radio host Lenard Larry McKelvey – better known as “Charlemagne Tha God” – that black voters who were undecided whether to support the Democratic ticket or President Donald Trump in the 2020 election had a problem with their racial identity.
