Donald Trump has been trying to appeal to “his” African-Americans, but unbeknownst to him, it’s not going very well… I can’t imagine why anyone would be upset about being called “uneducated” and “desperate,” can you? Those silly people… Don’t they know he’s trying to ‘Make America Great Again??’
I am cringing right now over what I wrote above in jest because it’s really not funny AT ALL! It’s disgusting, offensive and horrible and I can’t even believe we are living in a time where a person like Donald J Trump is a nominee for the presidency — no matter what party he claims.
After a days-long tour through predominately white communities (while speaking to his African-Americans, of course) Donald Trump decided to grace flood-stricken Baton Rouge, LA with his presence for a photo-op, even though the Governor specifically asked him not to.
Of course, Fox News was on hand for his phone call afterwards where he told host Jeanine Pirro, regarding the black community:
It’s just, like, a total catastrophe, the unemployment rates, everything is bad — no health care, no education, no anything, no anything. And poverty is unbelievable. Then, I said, ‘Hey, wait a minute, vote for me. What have you got to lose? You can’t do worse, you can’t do any worse than what these people have been doing and I will do better.’
He literally just described the entire black population as “uneducated,” “unemployed,” and “poverty-stricken.” Is he fucking serious??
