Go ahead and file this one under “But Why?” news.
Apprentice alum and staunch Donald Trump supporter Omarosa Manigault has a brand new gig: Director of African-American Outreach for Trump’s presidential campaign.
Yes, you read that correctly.
On Monday, Omarosa announced her “good” news on MSNBC, saying when it comes to bridging the tumultuous gap between African-Americans and her boss, she is “happy to take up that cause for Donald Trump.”
Now, I’m not really sure how one can do “outreach” on a national level when your candidate is only pulling in 2 percent of the Black vote. Also, in battleground states such as Pennsylvania and Ohio, Trump has ZERO percent African-American support. Not to mention, isn’t this the same person who got on national TV and told Black protestors who were assaulted at Trump rallies, “You get what’s coming to you”?
During this same interview, Omarosa also stressed that the existing polls I mentioned above don’t really tell the truth about Black voters.
“I’m just wondering who they called because those numbers would be flawed according to the people who have come out to support him at an amazing faith-based service with African-Americans who support Donald Trump,” she explained.
“So I look at data, but my reality is that I’m surrounded by people who want to see Donald Trump as the next president of the United States who are African-Americans.” She added, “I just spent an amazing weekend with African-Americans for Trump — about 300 of them.”
Sure you did.
Obviously, Twitter came with the jokes:
Tears. Utter tears.
