Prominent radio personality Charlamagne Tha God expressed regret over his endorsement of the Biden-Harris ticket in the 2020 elections, according to a recent report by Politico. Charlamagne, known for hosting the popular radio show “The Breakfast Club,” conveyed his disappointment, particularly with Vice President Kamala Harris, whom he felt had become less visible since entering the White House.
Charlamagne’s endorsement in 2020 was heavily influenced by Biden selecting Harris as his running mate, a decision he then saw as a significant step towards political change. He believed Harris would be a dynamic leader and was vocal about his support for her. However, in his recent statements, he shared that this decision has led to backlash from listeners who feel let down by the administration’s performance.
In an interview with Politico, Charlamagne revealed that he has no plans to endorse Biden and Harris for the 2024 election cycle. He explained that his previous endorsement had led to personal and public disappointment, indicating that he felt Vice President Harris had not lived up to the expectations he had set when advocating for her candidacy.
Charlamagne’s interactions with the Biden administration have included notable moments, such as a heated interview with Harris in December 2021 on his Comedy Central show, “Tha God’s Honest Truth.” The interview became tense when he questioned Harris about who the “real” president was, referencing Democratic Senator Joe Manchin’s opposition to certain spending legislation. Despite an attempt by an aide to end the interview, Harris firmly stated that Joe Biden is the President, and she is the Vice President.
The radio host also recalled his 2020 interview with President Biden, which gained notoriety for Biden’s remark that listeners “ain’t Black” if they were undecided between him and Trump. Charlamagne expressed skepticism about the likelihood of either Harris or Biden appearing on his show in the future, given the administration’s current standing and his recent criticisms.
