Charles Barkley tells it like it is and he has no love for what he considers a failed Democratic party.
Barkley famously told his mother he votes Republican because he is rich but has since toned down his GOP support and usually comes out on the side of a Democrat in a political contest.
But not before bashing the Democratic party to its core causing some to wonder where his true allegiances are.
Anyway, tough love is the best love and the Dems should accept his advice if they ever want to leave political purgatory.
Fox News reported that NBA player Charles Barkley indicated that he was tired of the Democrats’ inaction, saying that the Dems only talked with black people when they wanted their votes.
“They’ve been taking black people’s votes – and they only talk to black people every four years.” Charles said.
“All of these politicians only talk to black people every four years because they want their vote,” Barkley said in an interview on Wednesday.
He added that he thought Republicans didn’t talk to black voters and that Democrats did “nothing in the four years in between.”
His interview echoed his previous remarks about black voters. “Every black person I know has always voted Democratic and, with the exception of a few guys who can play sports, all those people are still poor,” said Barkley during another interview in the summer.
The 56-year-old legend also knocked President Trump but was wary of calling him racist. “I’m leery of calling people ‘racist.’
“He says some things that can be construed as racist,” Charles Barkley said of President Trump’s recent controversies. “Some things he’s said are very wrong and flagrant.”
