The attacks against former Vice President Joe Biden have been coming from all sides after he told Charlamagne Tha God that black voters “ain’t black” if they don’t pull the lever for him in the November election.

After social media had its way with the presidential candidate, Katrina Pierson, a senior adviser to the Trump campaign and leader of its Black Voices for Trump group, denounced the comments as “racist and dehumanizing,” arguing that they were indicative of white liberal privilege.

The article goes on to state the following:

In an appearance on the “The Breakfast Club” on Friday, Biden made his  comment when he told host Charlamagne Tha God told Biden needs to come back on his show to answer “more questions” pertaining to black American issues.

“You’ve got more questions?” Biden said. “Well I tell you what, if you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black.”

Pierson said in a statement posted on the Trump reelection campaign website:

“White liberal elitists have continuously dictated which black Americans are allowed to come to the table and have a voice.

“It is clear now more than ever, following these racist and dehumanizing remarks, that Joe Biden believes black men and women are incapable of being independent or free-thinking. He truly believes that he, a 77-year-old white man, should dictate how black people should behave. Biden has a history of racial condescension and today he once again proved what a growing number of black Americans and I have always known — Joe Biden does not deserve our votes.”

Lara Trump, campaign adviser to the president, and Donald Trump Jr. also commented on Biden’s statement.

Lara Trump tweeted:

“WHAT IF DONALD TRUMP HAD SAID THIS? Will Joe Biden get a pass on this??? I had to watch 3 times to make sure I actually heard what he said.”

Trump Jr. mocked:

“Based on [Biden’s] racist & dehumanizing comments today, I know he thinks he knows more about being black (despite being on the wrong side of every issue that matters to the black community throughout his whole career).”

He linked to this video, featuring an incredulous Senator Tim Scott (R-S.C.):
