In an interview with Sean Hannity on Fox News Channel, South Carolina Senator Tim Scott discussed his view that the mainstream media often neglects to report or emphasize stories about President Joe Biden’s controversial remarks, which he considers racially insensitive. He specifically mentioned comments Biden made about Barack Obama and his statement regarding black voters who support other candidates.

As context, Biden has made several remarks over the years that have stirred controversy. Notably, in the lead-up to the 2020 election, he made a comment saying, “if you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black,” which received widespread criticism. Additionally, in 2007, he described Barack Obama as “the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy. I mean, that’s storybook, man.” In 2012, he told a predominantly Black audience that Romney and Republicans would “put y’all back in chains.”

Hannity broached the subject of those comments and Biden not being criticized for saying them during the interview, asking Scott, “How is it that Joe Biden — we played that tape of Joe Biden and the things he said: “You ain’t Black,” and, you know, ‘They’re gonna put you all back in chains.’” Scott, interjecting, said, “‘Back in chains.’ Disgusting comment.”

Hannity continued, noting that the media would have criticized Biden for his past comments if he were on the other side. However, due to his left-leaning views, his remarks are largely ignored. He said, “The thing that was the most unbelievable to me, and if it were a Republican, it probably would be career-killing, which is him partnering with his friend and mentor, a former Klansman, to stop the integration of public schools and busing.”

He continued, “Even Kamala Harris criticized him for that in that presidential primary debate in 2020. ‘I was that girl,’ I believe she said. Because he didn’t want public schools to — his words! — to be like ‘racial jungles.’ Am I the only one in the country that dares to bring this up and ask incredulously, ‘Why doesn’t anyone care about that?’”

Sen. Scott responded, noting that the mainstream media hadn’t covered Biden’s past comments. “You know they’re not putting that on CNN. You know they’re not playing in on MSNBC. They are not sharing the truth of who Joe Biden has always been. We should run commercial after commercial with Kamala Harris telling Joe Biden what he did in the sixties,” he said.

“And in addition to that, we should make sure that his words of the ‘jungle’ — what a disgusting reflection on who he is. I will say this without any question: jobs and justice are moving more black folks towards Donald Trump because we want fairness. And what we hear from Joe Biden over and over again is a pandering tour. But you’re 100% right to associate with a racist, a KKK member, and to celebrate it. You can only do that when all of the national media goes dark. They won’t cover any negative news on Joe Biden.”
