After Killer Mike explained the need for voters to focus on policy rather than individual people, Maher asked the rapper which candidate he would “support” in 2024.
“I support Black people. And happy Black History Month,” Killer Mike said before referencing his past support for independent Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders.
“Can't you just say, 'I'm voting for Biden over Trump?'” Maher asked.
Killer Mike responded by listing what Biden needs to do to gain support.
“Can he make himself apologize for this?”  Crime bill? Could he seriously say, “Black people, you are black''? He wants to be told what he has to do. 'He could pick a coalition of former people affected by drug enforcement, street gangs, recidivism, and crime and say, “We need you on the board to advise us on how to improve federal prisons.'' Or? If he can do it, I definitely can too. So my challenge is over,” the rapper said.
