Trump Brags About ‘Great Relationship With the Blacks’
April 14, 2011
(ChattahBox Political News)— Donald Trump’s vulgar carnival act continued unabated today. In between repeating debunked birther conspiracies about President Obama’s birthplace, The Donald decided to establish his bona fides with “the blacks.” No, really. On top of that, the reality TV star and real estate braggart announced that he may reveal the date of an upcoming press conference during the final episode of his show “Celebrity Apprentice.” This press conference, may or may not serve as his official presidential run, or he may use the opportunity to introduce us to his many black friends, or he may announce that he’s running away to join the circus. Who knows. Who cares. But the attention gives Trump what he wants: more attention and a boost in ratings.
Trump made his remarks about “the blacks” during an interview with Fred Dicker, a conservative radio host, after Dicker brought up President Obama’s great poll numbers with African-Americans.
The New York Observer writes:
“Trump said the numbers were troubling and pointed to Hillary Clinton as proof that he probably won’t get the kind of support among African-Americans that he deserves.”
“I tell it like it is,” Trump said. “[Y]ou’ll hear a political reporter go on and say it had nothing to do with race. But how come she had such a tiny piece of the vote? And you know, it’s a very sad thing.
“I have a great relationship with the blacks. I’ve always had a great relationship with the blacks. But unfortunately, it seems that, you know, the numbers you cite are very, very frightening numbers.”‘
There really are no words.
