Killer Mike was arrested just two days after he refused to endorse Joe Biden on Bill Maher’s “Real Time with Bill Maher.”
During the conversation, Maher probed Killer Mike for his opinion on the election.
When pressed by Maher to choose a side between Biden and Trump, Killer Mike skillfully navigated away from a direct endorsement. Instead, he shared wisdom from his grandfather about avoiding involvement in “white folks’ business” and remained neutral while still expressing a preference for the policies of Bernie Sanders, whom he previously supported.
“This time, I’m going to keep my mouth closed. I still like the policy that the old man [Bernie] had that I was supporting. I would encourage people to find who’s supporting that policy and see what.”
“But you can’t get yourself to say ‘vote for Biden over Trump?’” Maher asked.
“You want me to list it now? Can he get himself to apologize for the  crime bill? Can he get himself to get his head out of his ass and say ‘black people, you are black regardless? I need you to tell me what I need to do.’ Can he pick a coalition of former people who were affected by drug law, street gangs, recidivism and crime and say ‘I need you as a board to advise me how to fix federal prisons’? If he can do that, absolutely I can. So my challenge is out,” the 48-year-old rapper said.
