*Well, we know what side of the fence former ESPN host Jemele Hill is on regarding Joe Biden‘s “you ain’t black” if you’re down with Trump comment.

As you know by now, the quip by Biden instantly became a GOP weapon to use against the presumptive Democratic nominee for president of the United States. He also pissed off a lot of black folk in general with his “cavalier” retort.”

Specifically Biden raised eyebrows Friday morning during an interview with Charlamagne tha God on the radio show “The Breakfast Club” as he defended his record with the black community.

“I tell you if you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black,” Biden said.

Biden later walked back his comments, but hours before, Hill, now with The Atlantic, and a staunch critic of Trump, offered a defense of the former vice president.

“The issue wasn’t what Joe Biden said, because it was accurate. The issue was that it came from Biden,” she tweeted.

“It also was clearly a joke that didn’t land. But I’m wondering where all this outrage was yesterday when y’all president declared his public devotion to a Nazi sympathizer,” she added, referring to Trump who praised the “good bloodlines” of Ford Motor Co. founder Henry Ford while visiting an automotive plant in Michigan on Thursday. During World War II, Ford produced vehicles for the Nazi regime. He also published anti-Semitic writings.

Maybe Hill’s defense of Biden was all for naught ’cause like we said up top, he walked them back in a call with the U.S. Black Chamber of Commerce, saying: “I shouldn’t have been so cavalier.”

Meanwhile, Miss Hill is catching incoming from folks who not feeling her Biden defense.

Hill had her defenders, though:
