Are you for real? That’s his hip hop name, and he’s a tastemaker in his circles. He actually tried to help Kamala Harris out with her butchered interview on his show 4 years ago, and softened the blow of the audience reaction.

Charlamagne isn’t an enemy of Biden, and he came up with his stage name as a young guy in the streets who was learning about Charlemagne in night school. It was created at a time that he was aspiring for more and had no success under his belt. Making fun of him for it is kind of messed up in my opinion. His name is iconic in hip hop.

Remember when Biden told him he wasn't black? Oof.

And he was pretty forgiving about that comment too—if dems think Charlamagne is to blame for those two awful interviews, then they clearly didn’t watch them. He did what he could to minimize the damage they did to themselves. If anything, him keeping his distance this time is just sparing them the rope they might hang themselves with again.
