Rudy Giuliani speaks to Fox News host Steve Doocy, Ainsley Earhardt and Brian Kilmeade (screen grab).

A panel of white hosts and pundits on Fox News asserted that Donald Trump’s Tuesday speech to a nearly all-white audience in Wisconsin showed that the Republican presidential nominee did not “take the black vote for granted” like they said Democrats had done for years.

On Tuesday, Trump traveled to West Bend, Wisconsin — which is 95 percent white — to ask “for the vote for every African-American citizen struggling in our society today who wants a different and much better future.”

Trump campaign adviser Rudy Giuliani joined three white Fox News hosts — Steve Doocy, Ainsley Earhardt and Brian Kilmeade — on Wednesday to praise Trump’s African-American outreach.

“Consider how dangerous that was,” Giuliani opined. “Going into Milwaukee in the middle of the riots and talking about law and order. But also talking about what needs to be done to help minority communities, African-American communities, poor communities to come out of the situation that they’re in. No one has offered answers like that together.”


“When he looked and said, ‘I know there’s a problem in the community, I’m not ignoring you, I want your vote,’ Republicans don’t even go for the black vote and Democrats take it for granted!” the Fox News host added. “Therefore, the African-Americans and minorities are the losers in this situation. He addressed that last night!”

“He addressed it directly,” Giuliani replied. “And he addressed the big problem we’ve had for maybe 30, 40 years and why we can’t crack through. The Democratic Party, including Hillary Clinton, takes the black vote for granted.”

“More food stamps, more welfare, more dependency programs, more blaming it on government,” he declared.

Y’know, I’m pretty sure that all those people of colour, in a town which is 95% white, know exactly what Trump thinks is the problem: people of colour. It’s pretty damned insulting to attack and insult persons of colour, then going on to state that they are just a wee bit stupid, voting against their own interests by voting democratic. These peoples’ mouths never met a foot they didn’t like. Yikes.

    Yes, the Democrats kinda sorta do take the black vote for granted.

    There just might be a reason for that. Kinda sorta the way the Republicans take the billionaire vote for granted.

    Yes, and here’s one of them:

    Appearing on CNN Wednesday afternoon, one of Donald Trump’s most vociferous supporters attempted to explain his continuing horrific polling numbers with the African-American community, saying black people are unable to tell satire from the truth.

    After an attempt to link Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton to white supremacists — which stunned host Brooke Baldwin and Democratic strategist Symone Sanders — Pastor Darrell Scott took a stab at explaining how black voters have come to mistakenly believe that Trump is a racist.

    “The thing that kills is this,” Scott began. “Black people believe satire, black people believe parody. I mean I had a guy that I considered to be a very intelligent person, send me a headline from a satire website that said that Donald Trump plans on deporting all African-Americans back to Africa — and be believed it!

    So, there you have a Black man ‘splainin how Black people are just too stupid to pick up satire, because all that racism Trump spews, just satire. Yep.

    It may be worth pointing out that liberals have their own problem of of thinking rural white people are also a wee bit stupid, voting against their interests. It’s become known as “What’s the matter with Kansas” thanks to a book with that title. I also see a lot of articles claiming it is people lacking a college education that are the main Trump supporters.

    I am skeptical of such claims. Some have pointed out, as a counter-example, that Michelle Bachmann was from a district in Minnesota where a lot of affluent white people live. That said, affluent does not equal smart…intelligence is complex, and it is a shame people too often want to boil it down to whether or not one has a college education.

    I should also say I’m not sure if Democrats should really want the votes of such horrible people…though I can understand not wanting people like Bachmann in congress, either. The thing about believing such people are suckers, I think, is more about those liberals* fooling themselves into believing they are too smart to be a Trump supporter/Republican rather than face the reality that there a whole lot of terrible people out there. Because that’s depressing.

    * Heck, I’ve even seen an anti-Trump conservative doing the same thing! I wanted to tell that person they’re not as smart as they think they are.
