Christian Author Responds to Biden Gaffe with Over-the-Top Racist Tweet

This morning, Joe Biden said something stupid. (Surprise.) He claimed, perhaps jokingly, on a morning radio talk show with a predominantly black audience, “If you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black.” And then, he apologized for it because it wasn’t funny, it wasn’t accurate, and what-the-hell-are-you-doing-Joe?

If you’re a Republican, that’s fodder for days’ worth of news segments. It doesn’t matter that Trump says far stupider things every day. It doesn’t matter that Trump says far more racist things every day. It doesn’t matter that Trump surrounds himself with and praises white nationalists. Who cares?!

A Democratic slip-up will always get more coverage than a Republican fuck-up.

All you have to do is shut up and let the Biden clip speak for itself.

Enter Christian author Eric Metaxas, a recently named “fellow” at Liberty University’s hilariously named Falkirk Center, who had perhaps the worst response you could imagine:

What the hell…

This is why there’s no conservative version of The Daily Show. Conservatives aren’t funny or clever. Their response to a racist comment is to be waaaaaay more racist. Unlike Biden, Metaxas hasn’t apologized. That tweet is still up. He’s just retweeting supportive comments now.

But there are some interesting responses:

All of this comes just days after Metaxas claimed the only reason people were anti-racist was because of the Bible.

I guess that means he’s never read it.
