    Patrick Rooney, Founder of Old Schoolô (Natural Health / Success / Freedom) discusses Democrat Presidential candidate Joe Biden's disastrous interview on "The Breakfast Club" with "Charlamagne Tha God." Biden said, "If you have a problem figuring out whether you're for me or Trump, then you ain't black." Biden's comments have caused outrage in the black community, with many trying to defend the comments, mostly by suggesting that President Trump is "worse" than Biden. Patrick provides incisive and sometimes humorous commentary, and also lists his "top takeaways."
