Rapper Killer Mike, known for his political activism, appeared on Bill Maher’s show.

When asked about his presidential preference, he emphasized policy over personality, avoiding a direct endorsement.

He highlighted the long-term impact of policies and the need for a policy-based approach.

Killer Mike expressed reservations about Joe Biden, citing concerns about the crime bill and the need for specific actions to earn his endorsement.

“My feeling is — pick your policy, not your person,” Killer Mike said.

“This is not the Dallas Cowboys versus your favorite team,” he said. “This is the policies that will affect our generations for the next 20, 30, 40 years to come.”

“So close your eyes. Listen to the policies that are being pushed (more applause) and pay attention, even to the people who don’t have a chance of winning because they’re gonna say policies you may want to push — and I would say do that — but make it policy-based.”

“That means?” Maher pressed. “Therefore?”

“That means I’m for black people,” Mike said.

“And happy Black History Month!” he added.

“You’re not saying one candidate over the other?” Maher asked.

“Hey man, my n—-, you ain’t gonna get me in no trouble,” Mike said.

“No, that’s your job with me, to get in trouble,” Maher said.

“I still like the policy that the old man had that I was supporting,” Mike said. “I would encourage people to find whose supporting that policy and see what happens.”

The stance reflects his previous support for Bernie Sanders and refusal to endorse Hillary Clinton in 2016.

“But you can’t get yourself to say vote for Biden over Trump?” Maher asked.

“You want me to list it now,” Mike said. “Can he get himself to apologize for the crime bill? Can he get himself to get his head out of his a– 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 laws, street gangs, recidivism in 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 [endorse him]!” Mike said. “So my challenge is out there!”
