All of the white guys were beaming, including Donald Trump and Mike Pence.
Donald Trump made white racists very happy on Wednesday during a campaign stop at an Ohio church when he produced a wide smile throughout pretty damn racist comments from boxing promoter and Trump supporter Don King.
King referred to black people as “negroes” throughout his speech and at one point even called them “n***ers” while seemingly accusing Democrats of telling black people that they can only succeed if they act like white people.
“We need Donald Trump, especially black people, because we have to understand, brothers and sisters, they tried to tell me you have to emulate and imitate the white man and then you can be successful. I told Michael Jackson, if you are poor, you are a poor negro… if you are rich, you are a rich negro. If you are a talented intellectual, you are an intellectual negro. If you are a dancing and sliding and gliding n*gger… I mean, negro… you are a dancing and sliding and gliding negro.”
The white guys sitting behind King were especially amused when King uttered the N-word. You can see them laughing and smiling and you know they want to use the word themselves.
And Republican nominee Donald Trump just sat there the entire time with a grin on his face, apparently appreciating the words King was using.

Seriously, they might as well have been wearing KKK robes during this rally.
While Democrats have been fighting for racial equality for decades, Donald Trump and his racist supporters are trying to fool black people into voting Republican, the party that has fought to prevent racial equality for decades. Republicans weakened the Voting Rights Act and would love nothing more than to repeal the Civil Rights Act. Voter suppression is running rampant in Republican controlled states and Trump and his minions support police shooting down unarmed black men in the streets.
Trump should not have been smiling through that speech. He should have been horrified. But he wasn’t, and that’s absolute proof that if he wins in November the racists are going to take over the mainstream.
