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.
