During a rally for Donald Trump, a white woman was spotted holding up a sign that proudly proclaimed “Blacks For Trump,” a contradiction that was quickly pointed out by the internet.
The rally took place in Lakeland, Florida on Oct. 13. The GOP nominee spent most of his time at the mic attacking all the women who have come forward to accuse him of sexual assault following the release of the “Pussygate” tape. Seated right behind Trump as he spoke, in clear view, was a white woman holding her “Blacks For Trump” sign high.
Social media wasted no time pointing her out and asking “why?”
“My eye keeps coming back to this older white woman holding up a ‘Blacks for Trump’ sign to Trump’s left,” tweeted one user.
“Why is this white woman is holding a ‘Blacks for Trump sign,” tweeted another.
To be fair, Trump rallies aren’t known for being particularly well organized. It is possible that no one paid attention to what signs were being handed out to who and that the woman had no idea what the sign she was holding even said.
Trump launched his “African American outreach” program in August and let’s just say that it wasn’t particularly effective. In fact, the only impact his “outreach” seemed to have on minority voters was to cement their conviction to vote for Hillary Clinton. The best reason he could give blacks to vote fo him was to tell them that their lives were so bad that they might as well vote for him because they had nothing left to lose anyway.
You’re living in poverty, your schools are no good, you have no jobs, 58 percent of your youth is unemployed — what the hell do you have to lose?”
In June, Trump even tried to pretend he had black support by tweeting a fake photo of a black family who eventually made it quite clear that they wanted nothing to do with The Donald or his campaign. He keeps screaming about how much support he has from the African American community, but that isn’t reality. Even the well-known anti-Semite, white supremacist, former KKK grand wizard, David Duke, is more popular among black voters than Trump. Hell, even bedbugs and the bubonic plague are polling better among minorities.
