A U.S Senate candidate from Michigan is calling out former Vice President Joe Biden for suggesting that black Trump supporters weren't authentically black, arguing that Biden was "embarrassing" himself and "condescending" to descendants of slaves.
After quoting Biden, James called the former vice president's comments "bull crap."
Too many people have died for me to have the right to think and vote for myself, but I wonder if Sen. [Gary] Peters agrees with you," James said, referring to Michigan's Democrat senator.
Biden campaign senior adviser Symond Sanders defended him Friday, saying his comments were "in jest."
Trump campaign adviser Katrina Pierson, for example, condemned comments from CNN commentator Angela Rye, who has shamed black Trump supporters in the past.
