We know his courting black voters by mouthing the history lesson about the how Republicans are the party of Lincoln (uh, were the party of Lincoln, the Great Emancipator) is really aimed at middle class white Republican voters who don’t want to vote for a racist. Will they buy it…. well, we all know the saying (wrongly) attributed to P.T. Barnum.
I really don’t have much to say, although this topic is certainly worth discussing. I merely wanted an excuse to share the the photo-toons I made this morning.
First thing this morning I was watching Trump making his supposed plea to black voters to vote for someone new because the Democrats have don’t nothing for the African-American community.
Does a gag line make you gag? When he assured his rally audience (who seemingly was indifferent) that he could guarantee that under him in four years 95% of all blacks would support him…. where’s the barf bag?
Then I read “Donald Trump is a con artist, playing his supporters for fools” by Lawrence Lewis….
and was inspired to search for a photo of P.T. Barnum and found the one with the top hat. I figured that it should have a special caption.
Meanwhile Trump is in glorious form:
“In recent days cross this country I’ve asked the African -American community to honor me with their vote….”
“The outreach to the African-American community is an area where the Republican party must do better and it will do better.”
Oh yeah, and by the way, I’m not a racist, did I mention, I’m not a racist?
And the illustrious and ever desperate head of the RNC, Rence, just said that the American people “want that safe product” which is Trump… yes, he said “product!” Safe, if he was a product in a grocery store he’d be pulled off the shelf for being toxic.
