It’s shockingly rare that President Biden–or any Democrat for that matter–does something for Americans. Most of the time, Joe pushes policies that enrich corporations, powerful donors, and radical progressive groups.
He claims he’s doing this for regular Americans. But in reality, everything he’s done has harmed most Americans’ livelihoods.
Recently, however, he was set to make a move that could save countless American lives. He was going to issue an order that would ban menthol cigarettes, which could prevent many from getting lung cancer. But he didn’t issue the ban–for this one shocking reason.
The Biden administration has delayed its ban on menthol cigarettes after strategists warned President Biden that it could negatively impact his support among black voters.
Leaders in the black community claim that the ban would foster an underground market and cause police to target black smokers in a disproportional manner, the Washington Post reports.
Since the black community has drastically dwindled its support for Biden over the past few years, the president’s administration isn’t taking any chances despite updated health guidance from the FDA and CDC.

So, politics matter more than saving black American lives. We shouldn’t be surprised about this. Democrats are the party that demands legal and free abortions, even though the practice disproportionally hurts black families.
Why would Biden ban menthol cigarettes, even though they are the leading cause of lung cancer deaths among black Americans?
Biden was warned by political operatives that banning these cigarettes would only outrage black voters. They made the bogus claim it would lead to an “underground market” and that cops could “target black smokers.” They said this based on zero evidence.
In reality, Biden has been losing support among black voters for years. They blame this old, senile racist for the bad economy and jobs market. Illegal immigration always disproportionally affects black workers, since illegals take their jobs.
So, instead of doing the right thing to protect black lives, Biden will continue to let them smoke cigarettes that are killing them.
Sounds about right.
Democrats love making decisions for us, claiming they know better until it hurts them politically. They want to ban meat, ban gas-powered cars, and take our guns away. But when it comes to cigarettes, heaven forbid!
What do you call people like that? Oh, yeah: hypocrites!
