Pence laughs out loud when Trump says blacks will vote for him

Mike Pence, the Republican vice presidential candidate, laughed out loud when he heard Donald Trump suggest recently that 95% of the black community would vote for Trump in 2020.

Currently, Trump is polling between 0% and 2% among African-American voters. Even former grand wizard of the KKK, David Duke, is polling higher among blacks.

Trump has been making a big push this week for the black vote, but not for the reason you might think. Trump isn’t trying to get African-Americans to vote for him, he’s trying to get white people to — and he’s using the black community to do it. 

Mike pence laughs

Mike Pence laughs when he hears Donald Trump brag about the number of African-Americans who will vote for him.

You see, Republicans have this problem where lots of people on the left, and middle, think GOP candidates are racist and intolerant. So, Republicans do big public appeals to blacks in order to woo whites. The intent is for middle of the road white people — the proverbial “soccer mom” — to watch and say: “Gosh, Donald Trump has been talking all week about how much he cares about African-Americans. I guess all  that talk of him being an intolerant bigot must be hooey.”

So, in fact, Trump is even more of a bigot, more intolerant, than we thought, as he’s willing to use the black community as a foil to get elected. He’s happy to talk about the issues confronting African-Americans, in order to woo white Americans, while planning on doing absolutely nothing to help the black community were he elected.

Trump’s suggestion that blacks will vote for him is laughable. But it’s not stupid.

    Pence has either higher aspirations or lower self worth… what a fuckin’ ticket!

  6. gratuitous says:

    Wait until Trump gets a load of this. He’ll send out so many tweets about Pence! The best tweets. Using all the best words. Pence better be ready for his schlonging.

    Off-topic but fun: Trump hates the two hosts at “Morning Joe.” His preferred personal attack today was to queer-bait them and state his opinion that Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski are dating. See Trump’s tweet below. Of course, it’s plastered all over the Internet:

    He understands he isn’t supposed to be a total idiot.

  9. NotConvinced says:

    Obviously Pence has no understanding of how this Vice President thing works.

  10. Demosthenes says:

    Gov. Pence may not be a genius, but he does have a finely honed “B.S.” meter.

  11. Quilla says:

    Kind of makes you wonder how much Pence pocketed to take this job.

  12. Mike_in_the_Tundra says:

    Trump needs the low information voters.

  13. That was just embarrassing of him.

  14. JeromeMac says:

    Wow, when your own running mate is openly laughing at you.
