Charlamagne tha God tells Megyn Kelly his thoughts on Joe Biden

Charlamagne tha God told Megyn Kelly that he’s “not a fan” of President Joe Biden while lamenting the fact that there are no viable third party options for Americans who plan to vote in the upcoming election this fall.

Kelly invited the popular host of the nationally syndicated radio show “The Breakfast Club” on to her SiriusXM podcast on Thursday to discuss his most recent appearance on “The View,” where co-host Sunny Hostin wondered why he wouldn’t endorse the Democrat incumbent.

“I’m not a fan,” Charlamagne told Kelly on her show on Thursday. “People say I’m not going to endorse means I’m not voting, which I think is the strangest thing ever.”

Charlamagne, whose legal name is Lenard McKelvey, told Kelly on Thursday that when he expressed his preference for a third party candidate during his “The View” appearance, co-host Whoopi Goldberg “told me she would beat my behind.”

“I just think it’s strange where we are as a culture and a society, where it’s like there’s either one of two extremes, and if you’re a person who simply chooses to be objective…for some reason it bothers people, and I don’t understand,” Charlamagne said.

Charlamagne told Kelly that he has been “looking at third parties since 2016” when he felt disillusioned with then-President Barack Obama.

“I don’t think the two-party system has been the best thing for us here in America,” he added.

Charlamagne said he was “actually shocked there hasn’t been a third party candidate that’s come along and really galvanized people…especially being that America seems to be so disappointed in the choices we have now.”

The radio host, whose show is heard on scores of stations nationwide and is particularly popular among black listeners in the US, said he is part of the “exhausted majority” that “are tired of politics, period.”

He said that he wasn’t impressed with either Biden or former President Donald Trump, and that the two parties should “run better candidates” in order to appeal to voters.

While Charlamagne has been critical of “uninspiring” Biden, he has also referred to Trump as a “threat to democracy,” telling “The View” that “the choice is clear” as to who he will vote for in November.

Trump on Thursday held a rally in the deep-blue Bronx — where thousands of people in a predominantly Hispanic section of the borough cheered as the former president laid out his agenda for a second term in office were he to win this fall.

A recent New York Times and Sienna poll found that Biden’s support among minority voters — a key element of the Democratic coalition — was eroding.

The survey found that Trump was handily beating Biden in five key battleground states thanks to more than 20% support from black voters.

Biden and Trump are also essentially tied among Hispanic voters as well as voters aged 18 to 29 years old — well down from the 60% that both groups gave to Biden in 2020, according to the poll.

Trump’s inroads with nonwhite voters are likely the reason that he has taken a significant leads in key swing states such as Arizona, Georgia and Nevada.
