Liberal radio personality Charlamagne Tha God took aim at President Biden for what he insisted was inaction towards Republican election reform efforts nationwide, declaring him the “donkey of the day.”
“We are citizens of America, like it or not, and it is our job as citizens to hold our elected officials accountable,” Charlamagne told his listeners on Wednesday. “Doesn’t matter if you voted for them or not, doesn’t matter if the person that represents your party is in power or not, it is your job as a citizen in the United States of America to hold our elected officials accountable, period. And since I do this thing called radio, I get to voice that accountability to millions of people.”
Charlamagne then played a clip from Biden’s speech on Tuesday, where he decried the “ongoing assault on voting rights” and that it’s the “greatest challenge to American democracy since the Civil War.”
“Now, I’ve been saying this for months- No. 1. They’ve been trying to take yo n—as’ right to vote and we keep hearing things like ‘democracy is at stake,’ then dammit, Democrats need to act like it and I still don’t think they’re acting like it,” Charlamagne exclaimed. “I’m glad, you know, that President Biden said something, but he’s still not going hard enough, he’s still being delusional about how to stop this problem.”
“Why does he think that the same people who are clearly for voter suppression would ever vote for For the People Act or the John Lewis Voting Rights Act? Okay? When people show you who they are, believe them,” the radio host continued.
