As you know, Joe Biden is not doing particularly well when it comes to polling, especially when placed against Trump or talking to the black demographic. For Democrat Representative Jasmine Crockett, this means that black voters are too dumb to understand reality.
And yes, she said as much on TV recently.
It happened on Sunday while appearing on CNN’s “State of the Union.” As with just about everything politics-related, the subject of 2024 and Biden’s abysmal campaign came up.
In particular, a poll from The New York Times showing Biden to be lacking considerably in a number of critical swing states was discussed. When placed against Trump, Biden always lost. And when it was black voters were asked about Biden’s support, they usually chose Trump.
The greatest concern is that his biggest liability is the one thing he can't change. Among all the unpredictables there is one thing that is sure: the age arrow only points in one direction.

For those of us in our right mind, we know that just like every other demographic, black voters have been affected by Biden’s disastrous open borders, ongoing inflation, and crime skyrocketing. So it would only make sense that, like every other demographic, black Americans aren’t as willing to support Biden anymore.
But that’s not how Crocket sees it.
Instead, she first blames Biden’s abysmal numbers on “perception.” According to her, they may perceive or “feel” like things are bad. But that’s not “reality.”
And then, if that wasn’t bad enough, she tries to explain that most of them probably are “not understanding exactly how any of this works.”

Anyone else feel like she just insulted your intelligence?
She said, “We’ve got some very popular African American artists that are out here saying things like, ‘Oh, I got checks when Trump was in office. I want those checks again,’ not understanding that that really came from Congress. So we’ve got a couple of things, the perception issue, and then we also have an issue as it related to civics in this country and people not understanding exactly how any of this works.”
As one social media user says correctly, “Wow! This is bad.” And it is.
I mean, she just said that black voters can’t see reality and that they aren’t smart enough to understand politics.
She's essentially calling black people dumb

For a black woman herself, she’s definitely not looking too bright at the moment…
