At the rate Donald Trump is scooping up key parts of the Republican base the real candidates are too afraid to be seen courting, his fake candidacy will have officially have won the real campaign in only a week or two. Who’s he going after now? Racists. “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,” he told a radio interviewer when asked about Obama’s support among African Americans. He loses points for saying he has a “good relationship” with “the blacks,” but he definitely makes up for it by using the term “the blacks” and saying they only support Obama because he’s black.
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.” […]
Dicker said, somewhat rhetorically, that votes should always be based on merit, not on race.
“If that were the case, why did Hillary Clinton do so poorly?” Turmp asked.
Yeah, how dare black people not support Hillary Clinton? How sad. Just when you think white people will have the chance to win the presidency, black people close the door once again. When will a white guy like Trump ever be allowed success at anything?
Of course, Clinton did have a whole lot of support from African Americans, especially older voters. But obviously they should listen to Trump and evenly split their votes in any given election between the guy they think they agree with and, say, a man who refers to them as “the blacks.” [NY Observer via Wonkette operative “Brandy C.”]
