Katrina Pierson — a senior advisor to the Trump 2020 campaign — torpedoed Joe Biden after he attacked President Trump as the country’s “first” racist president.

Pierson reminded “You Ain’t Black” Biden that he’s in no position to lecture anyone about racial justice, given his decades-long history of racist slurs and anti-black policies.
In a scathing statement, Pierson said Biden is hoping black voters will forget his extensive history of racist gaffes and the fact that he was close friends with former KKK bigwig Robert Byrd, a Democrat senator for 51 years.
Pierson — who is black — remarked: “This is an insult to the intelligence of Black voters and is really rich coming from a guy who proudly:
- Befriended segregationists
- Touted an award from George Wallace
- Honored a former Exalted Cyclops of the Ku Klux Klan
- Worried his kids would grow up in a ‘racial jungle’
- Marveled that Barack Obama was ‘articulate’ and ‘clean’
- Bragged about being from a slave state, and
- Repeatedly used the N-word.”
Pierson added: “President Trump loves all people, works hard to empower all Americans, and is supported by more Black voters than any Republican presidential candidate in modern history. No one should take lectures on racial justice from Joe Biden.”
The brouhaha erupted after Biden said this during a virtual town hall from his basement:
“The way [Trump] deals with people based on the color of their skin, their national origin, where they’re from, is absolutely sickening. No sitting president has ever done this. Never, never, never. No Republican president has done this. No Democratic president.
“We’ve had racists, and they’ve existed. They’ve tried to get elected president. He’s the first one that has.”

For the record, the United States has had presidents who were openly racist — much more so than Biden falsely claims President Trump is.
- 12 presidents owned slaves, including Andrew Johnson, a Democrat who was virulently racist against blacks.
- From 1942 to 1945, Democrat president Franklin Roosevelt imprisoned Japanese-Americans in internment camps.
- For decades, the Democrat Party supported the Ku Klux Klan and opposed desegregation.
Then there’s Democrat Woodrow Wilson.

In May, Biden ignited volcanic backlash when he arrogantly told black Americans that “You Ain’t Black!” if you don’t vote for him.
Black commentators said Biden’s entitled statements underscore that Democrats think they own the black vote. Biden’s laughable use of ebonics was also dripping with racist condescension.
In June, street preacher Bevelyn Beatty trashed Joe Biden as a racist and said “Democrats hate black people.”
“These Democrats…they hate black people!” Beatty said. “These are the same people who fought to keep slavery in. These are the same people who built the KKK. The Republican Party is the party of the blacks.”
Civil-rights attorney Leo Terrell is a lifelong Democrat who has repeatedly criticized President Trump.
Last week, Terrell vowed on national TV that he would vote for a Republican in November for the first time in his life. When asked why he’s voting for President Trump, Terrell said he can no longer support the Democrat Party’s racism, lies, and empty pandering.
Terrell doubled-down on his statements on Hannity Wednesday night:
“Let me be very clear to every Democrat on the planet: Donald J. Trump has done more for black America in three years than the Obama/Biden administration [ever did]. The reason I’m voting for Donald Trump is because Joe Biden went on national radio and said, ‘If you vote for Trump, you ain’t black.’ That is insulting! That is racist! Biden is the racist!”
Terrell continued: “You have these old, outdated Democrats who are still trying to pander to blacks [with empty promises]. Blacks, reject this! And with the crime going on in these Democratic cities, it is insulting! Donald Trump is the only person who can resurrect these Democrat cities and save them from lawlessness. Let’s be very clear: Joe Biden is the racist, not Donald Trump!”
