Angela Rye ridicules Trump backer defending white woman holding ‘Blacks for Trump’ sign at rallies

Published

If one is to believe former New York Lt. Governor Betsy McCaughey (R), GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump can expect a surprising amount of African-Americans to vote for him when they cast their votes in two weeks.

Appearing on CNN, the Trump advocate attempted to explain why a white women was holding a “Blacks for Trump” at a recent rally was a good sign for Trump — as CNN commentator Angela Rye sat back and laughed.

Asked why a white woman was holding the poster, McCaughey said she didn’t know exactly why,  but thought it was a sign of the times.

“I have no idea but I certainly understand why many African-Americans would be for Trump,” McvCaughey explained as Rye could be heard beginning to laugh in the background.

As McCaughey continued to explain that “African-Americans have taken it on the chin under Barack Obama’s two terms,” Rye grinned and rolled her eyes before looking at the camera and shaking her head ‘no.’

Finally given a chance to respond, Rye was asked about the “Blacks for Trump” sign and if there is such a thing.

“He might have to, to use a throwback term from the 2012 election, he might have a binder-full, but not much more than that,” Rye said with a smirk and sly glance at McCaughey.

In keeping with measures he supported in Congress, the plan calls for a "responsible end" to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan — reinvesting $1 out of every $2 saved in veterans programs — and the creation of a Veterans Health Care Trust Fund for each future war. The fund would be paid for by a "war tax" on households without service members or veterans.

Conservative Ben Shapiro tweeted something many found offensive — so now he’s calling his critics ‘garbage’

Published

on

Right wing "thought leader" Ben Shapiro appeared today to say not using the "N" word is nearly impossible as he defended conservative, pro-gun teen Kyle Kashuv, one of the Parkland survivors who just had his acceptance to Harvard rescinded over his racist remarks, which included repeated use of the "N" word.

To be clear, Shapiro denies that's what he meant.

Here is Shapiro on Twitter, in what many took as him appearing to call not using the "N" word – in Kashuv's case, repeatedly, over and over and over again, "an insane, cruel standard no one can possibly meet."
