Legendary comedian, host, author, and one of the few socially conscious celebrity voices, DL Hughley, held nothing back when he recently took to social media, expressing his thoughts on Trump’s motives for Black Americans.
In the video, DL argues Trump’s reasoning for meeting with black celebrities such as comedians, athletes, and rappers.
Watching the first presidential debate last night was more than cringe-worthy, it was a two-hour reminder of how much trouble this country could be in, especially if we don’t go to the polls. We were watching the battle between two unpopular presidential candidates; our voting decision will be solely based on either voting on the “lesser of two evils” or voting green! Although, Clinton did win me over with a few pointers.
By the time the debate was over, I was inundated with confusion and STILL needed many questions answered.
Why did Lester Hold do a piss-poor job as the moderator?
Why did Trump’s hair look like he rode a motorcycle on his way to the venue?
Why was Clinton looking like a BOSS-MISSES in that red suit?
Why did Trump go over the 2-minute limit every time he was told he only had two minutes?
Trump pretty much exposed his incompetence as President of the United States. Do you think that’s gained more votes for Clinton?
Why didn’t Clinton check Trump for all his interruptions? I think we all agree that Holt couldn’t do his job….
Why are we still waiting on an answer from Trump on the solution to racial division?
Why did Trump remind me of the class clown who needs attention badly?
Why did we get pumped about the”fact-checks”?
When are we gonna see those tax returns?
Who told Trump he has better temperament?
Why is “Stop & Frisk” in America the dumbest plan ever?
Why did Clinton smile everytime Trump went below the belt?….:-)
Why did Trump change his mind about running for president? Just a few years ago, he said in an interview that he wasn’t interested….
Are we wondering if China is on the phone with someone in Trump’s camp?
I look at this picture and it’s so clear who this child appreciates.
When Little Miss Flint AKA Amariyanna Copeny met with Donald Trump this week, he wasn’t met with the same reception and enthusiasm as President Obama. Looking at this poor child’s face, I’m convinced she may likely suffer from post-traumatic stress from just Trump touching her!
Look at her pic with President Obama. She greeted Barack with the biggest hug and looking at the HUGE smile on her face, that day probably made her life!
That’s the effect our president has on our kids.
I have a hard time believing Trump will have this same kind of effect on kids, or even most adults, for that matter.
Yes, we feel your struggle, baby girl! I sure hope your parents learned a valuable lesson during this apparently difficult moment!
Every last member of a black church in Charlotte, North Carolina has thrown support behind Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, believing the initiatives of his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton are “reckless” and actually hurt the very community the church serves.
“It had a rippling effect,” Katrina Rodgers of Antioch Road to Glory International Ministries told WSOC TV of Clinton’s husband President Bill Clinton’s policies. “Not only did the prison population increase but it brought about division in our homes.”
“Providing jobs would automatically have a rippling effect on the economy which would have effects on crime rates which would have its effect on families,” Rodger said of Trump’s proposals.
Church members held a town hall Sunday with headliners such as Trump’s daughter-in-law, Lara Trump, and his standout on “The Apprentice” Omarosa, who is currently his Director of African American Outreach.
A clip of the late great Tupac Shakur shows him explaining his views on generosity and responsibility; traits he feels some wealthy people like Donald Trump lack. This is a clip from MTV News from 1992.
Tupac was very passionate with his explanation and made a lot of sense…as he always did. In his own special way, he warned us about Trump.
I’m sure anti-Trump supporters will appreciate this!
Some teens from Baltimore, Md. created a rap song, dragging the republican presidential candidate to filth!
As told by the Baltimore Sun:
The three performers — under the names Dooley, Tlow and Lor Roger — made the song, which is short for “Choppa in a Trunk 4 Donald Trump,” after coming up with the chorus, said Dooley, born Abdel Ibrahim. (“Choppa” is a slang term for a selective-fire rifle.)
None of the performers are musicians, said Ibrahim, a 19-year-old Internet personality known for his widely shared short comedy videos. They found their impromptu hook so catchy that they decided to make a short Twitter video of it, said the East Baltimore native. They synced it to the song “Chicken Chicken” by the Detroit rapper Rocaine.
“We dropped that video for fun. It blew up like crazy, and everyone was like, ‘Make the song for real!’” Ibrahim, who now lives in Essex, said Tuesday. “I’m not no rapper though. I do comedy videos.”
Trump’s campaign did not immediately respond Tuesday to a request for comment from The Sun.
Trump supporters and protesters in Chicago clash, which led to a massive outbreak that resulted in postponing Trump’s rally. This comes after a series of incidents between Trump’s supporters and protesters. This time, things escalated before Trump could make it to the stage at the University of Illinois.
According to witnesses, the place quickly filled with demonstrators that were passionately vocal about their displeasure with the Republican presidential candidate’s vision and rhetoric. The protesters eventually began to chant “We gonna be alright”.
The protests at Mr. Trump’s rallies have increased and so has the pushback surrounding them. One protester in North Carolina this week was sucker-punched by a rally attendee. Mr. Trump, the front-runner in the race for the Republican presidential nomination, has insisted that he does not condone the violence but has said that in the “good old days” protesters were roughed up to keep them in line.
a 78-year-old white man by the name of John McGraw was caught on video sucker-punching a black protestor as he was being forced to leave Trump’s campaign rally Wednesday by security. The over-zealous Trump supporter was arrested and charged with two counts of assault and disorderly conduct after video images of the punch went viral online. Because of the video, the Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office was able to obtain McGraw’s identity and make the arrest.
After the incident, McGraw appeared on ‘Inside Edition’ and said ” he deserved it” and “next time, we might have to kill him”.
The victim, 26-year-old Rakeem Jones, told Inside Edition on Thursday morning that his left eye still hurts from the punch and he remains confused about why he was being taken out by security in the first place.
I’m not big on politics, but watching this circus has convinced me that some of my people will support folks who has never and will never give a damn about them. Presidential nominee Donald Trump claims there was no monetary exchange with the pastors for endorsing him, but I beg to differ. There’s absolutely no way any sane person (no matter the race) would support a presidential candidate who at some point, blamed a specific group of people for all of America’s problems. From his disrespectful comment about a #BlacklivesMatter protester who was beaten at one of his events to mocking a reporter with a disability, Trump has officially been added to the top of my Fuckery List. No way he would gain supporters, ESPECIALLY black folks unless money was involved.
“Generally, Republicans do not do well with African-Americans,” Trump said.
“I have a lot of friends, African-Americans in New York, they say, ‘You’re going to get most of the vote.’ I was actually disappointed with the 25 percent,” he said.
It’s funny how Trump, a Republican with black friends which he conveniently tells the press, reminds us of the unpopularity of republicans regarding black folks, then does a 360 with this…
Naive black folks letting Trump kiss your black babies for nothing genuine but that photo opportunity. He’s trying to win that black vote, and he’ll go as far as meet with over 100 black sellouts religious leaders to help make him look good. In my humble opinion, he’s playin’ every one of you “supporters” with empty promises. Just ask Corletta Vaughn.
The fact that church leaders are being hoodwinked by this dude is beyond amazing to me. Mixing politics with religion is risky, to say the least. I’m assuming the issue that ties them together would be community involvement. However, I’ve never imagined a church leader supporting a campaign as messy as Trump’s. His way of convincing potential voters is to mud sling his opponents.
In conclusion, I’d like to believe that the video above can be a reminder to those who don’t vote that voting is important. We need to keep Trump’s voter count low for obvious reasons. If he becomes our next president, I’d have to look into moving to Canada! Trump leading our country is a scary thought! The messed up part about what could be is that some of my black folks would be responsible.
