A truly big supporter of President Donald Trump issued a very clear message to presumptive Democrat nominee Joe Biden.
A California man known as “MAGA HULK” addressed Biden’s controversial “you ain’t black” remarks in a video message that created a sensation on social media.
“Joe Biden doesn’t think I’m black because I’m not a Democrat, but let me tell you this Joe Biden: You cannot shame me to running back to your Democratic Party,” the man with the Make America Great Again hat said, referring to the former vice president’s comments on Friday.
Biden set off a firestorm of backlash when he defended his record in an interview on the radio show “The Breakfast Club,” telling host Charlamagne tha God: “I tell you if you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black.”

After hours of media coverage as Biden’s campaign and surrogates attempted to play down the comments, and as social media hashtags like #YouAintBlack and #JoeBidenIsARacist began trending on Twitter, Biden finally addressed the controversy and issued an apology of sorts.
“I’ve never ever taken the African-American community for granted, had their support … I shouldn’t have been such a wise guy. I shouldn’t have been so cavalier,” he said. “I don’t take it for granted at all, and no one, no one should have to vote for any party, based on their race or religion or background.”
But for the MAGA Hulk, Biden’s words left a deep impression not swept away with a perfunctory explanation.
“You cannot use my race or my skin color as some kind of bargaining chip,” he said in his video message.
“Joe Biden, let me tell you this and let me tell you this one time: You did not issue me my blackness and you cannot take it away,” he said.
“You will not coerce, shame or race-bait me back into your Democratic Party plantation,” he added, saying Biden wants “to put us black people back in chains.”
The vocal Trump supporter, who is known as @MagaMuscles on Twitter, had gotten the attention of the president earlier this month when he explained he wasn’t always a Trump supporter to conservative filmmaker Maggie VandenBerghe.
“I believed everything the media told me. I believed, I drank the Kool-AId, so to speak,” he said, sporting pro-Trump gear.
“I like to know why I don’t like someone,” he added, explaining how he researched all the negative things being said about the president and concluded, “I like this guy!”
Trump thanked him in a retweet of the video, adding “You are very cool!”

“We’re supposed to be the land of the free and the home of the brave. The only brave ones seem to be ones protesting these lockdowns,” he said, adding a direct message to Newsom. “Open. Up. This is our city, this is our town, this is our state. Open up!”
MAGA Hulk’s latest video message to Biden was cheered on social media where Twitter users gave him a virtual standing ovation.
Thank you!! Love your passion and your voice! Keep speaking the truth.

Thank you, people should be upset by this before CNN and MSNBC try and sweep it under the rug.
The Democratic Party treats minorities like pets. Enough is enough.
