Joe Biden has claimed the radio host who interviewed him when he made controversial and racial remarks last week was being a “wise guy.” On Tuesday, he said Lenard McKelvey, who goes by the name “Charlemagne tha God,” had an attitude that prompted him to respond in kind.

Last week, The Breakfast Club host told Biden “we’ve got more questions” before the presumptive Democrat nominee remarked that black voters considering voting for President Trump “ain’t black.”

The former vice president apologized for his comments while discussing his interview with Charlemagne.

“First of all, it was a mistake. I was smiling when he asked me the question, I shouldn’t have been such a wise guy with him. He was being a wise guy, and I responded in kind.”

In the meantime, Charlemagne has criticized Biden for his political track record. The host pointed out that during his time as a senator, Biden supported drug and jail sentencing bills that hurt the black community.
