*If you missed it, this past Sunday Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump told ABC News the US won’t see another black president for who-knows-when because President Barack Obama “set a very poor standard.” Let’s not forget that he jumped on the whole birther movement and relentlessly questioned whether Obama was born in the United States.
Trump, who’s convinced his stuff don’t stink was once sued by the Justice Department because the management of his apartment complexes allegedly discriminated against black tenants — also believes he’ll win the black vote.
Specifically, as far as President Obama, “The Donald” responded to a question about a tweet he sent last year saying America would not see another black president for generations because the how lowly he rated Obama’s performance in office.
“He has done nothing for African Americans. You look at what’s gone on with their income levels. You look at what’s gone on with their youth. I thought that he would be a great cheerleader for this country. I thought he’d do a fabulous job for the African American citizens of this country. He has done nothing,” Trump said.
“They have problems now in terms of unemployment numbers, look at their unemployment numbers. And you have — here you have a black president who’s done very poorly for the African Americans of this country,” Trump said. “I think that I will win the African American vote and I think I will win the Hispanic vote.”
As delusional and full of you-know-what as he is, unbelievably dude continues to lead all the other GOP presidential candidates. That says volumes about what Republican voters want.
Trump also would not rule out a third-party run for office, saying only that he wouldn’t run as an independent if he was treated fairly by the Republican party.
Meanwhile Monday night on “The Tonight Show,” Jimmy Fallon decided to put on a bad wig and show us what it would be like if Obama called Trump to offer him some advice for Thursday’s Republican presidential debate. As you can imagine, the clip involves a lot of bragging, interrupting, Chris Christie jokes, and auto tune. Watch the foolywang:
