Yeah…Donald Trump loves him some black fol– er…voters. And, he also hopes they are dumb enough to fall for his latest line of ugly bullshit about this new-found love for them. Actually, he must believe they are this dumb!

Any self-respecting person of color watching and hearing this speech yesterday had to be repulsed and infuriated by this blatantly arrogant, condescendingly insulting mockery of truth trotted out and put on display for all to see by the loathsome Trump and the equally loathsome Republican Party. If I were a person of color I would be at once insulted and enraged.

Donald Trump stood there today in Dimondale, Michigan, a town filled with white folks – when right down the road is a town that is primarily black – and spouted out this cynical bullshit about how much he’s going to do for the African American communities in this country. I – and I hope a lot of brothers all over the country – wanted to smash my fist through the TV screen straight into his stupid orange face.

What a fucking nerve. This schmuck has no shame, no awareness of how disingenuous he is – how fucking phony he is. And, his all-white crowd of boobs, who have about one black friend total between them – cheered lustily at this charlatan’s surreal lies. This orange asshole and this cretinous political party just proved by this speech that they have so little regard for the Black community in this country as to actually believe that people of color would swallow this offensive pack of lies.

This jackass Trump must really actually believe that African Americans are going to now say; “the brutha Trump is for real…he loves the black man.” This contemptuous lying snake-oil salesman is the epitome of ugliness.

This piece of shit – who now LOVES the Blacks, this fraud who is now going to make everything alright for their community – previously turned down invitations to speak at The NAACP, the National Urban League, The National Association of Black Journalists, Black Pastoral groups and a host of Black business groups and entrepreneurs, most recently in Detroit. And, now that he is desperate, he is the Black man’s new best friend – and, even in light of his phony new love for African Americans, he STILL gave his bullshit talk in Michigan in a mostly white town to an audience of white morons – who all pretended to be so touched by their hero’s new-found epiphany. I am certain that even Trump couldn’t get up the colossal gall it would’ve taken to face a black audience and spout this crap.

This is the same person who told John R. O’Donnell, the former president of Trump Plaza Hotel & Casino, “I have black guys counting my money. … I hate it. The only guys I want counting my money are short guys that wear yarmulkes all day.” Trump, according to O’Donnell, went on to say; “Laziness is a trait in blacks. It really is, I believe that.”

In the famous words of Joseph Welch to Senator Joe McCarthy in the Army-McCarthy hearings of 1954: “You’ve done enough. Have you no sense of decency, sir, at long last? Have you left no sense of decency?”

Sadly, in Donald Trump’s case the answer is a resounding “no!

  1. As if one speech and him boasting how much blacks love him plus how he will get 95% of the black votes is actually going to make it happen.

  2. We watch with trepidation and revulsion. We’ve had our own moment of idiot wind over here – Brexit – based upon lies that didn’t stand up to scrutiny just hours after the vote – a vote which has seen a 44% rise in reported racist incidents. We’re not proud of ourselves and behind the scenes there is scheming going to make sure we don’t exit Europe. But as a result, we’re not taking for granted anymore that ‘Hills’ will win. Scary.

  3. That speech was one of the things that really got me mad last week. It’s one thing to know that there are a whole lot of racists in America, but it’s a whole other thing when the republican party eggs them on openly and then thinks we’re all self-loathing enough to fall for the thinly veiled BS of speeches like that. Every time I see a black republican who says they’ll vote for this racist jerk, I want to scream.

  4. Just when I he’s dug enough a deep hole, out comes the shovel, and digs down deeper…

  5. What a despicable piece of shit this creature is. This latest stunt has created much backlash for him, once again. He’s truly the vile creature I’ve ever seen in my life.

  6. And, I can’t believe he actually said ” vote for me, you have nothing to lose, anyway.” or something like that. What the heck is that all about ? lol Oh my word.
