Donald Trump Forgot To Invite Black People To His African-American Town Hall Event

Shortly after Don King dropped the n-word while introducing Donald Trump as a campaign event at New Spirit Revival Church in Cleveland Heights, Ohio, the GOP nominee settled in for a town hall forum hosted by his loyal sycophant Sean Hannity.

Since the event was taking place in a church led by Pastor Darrell Scott, a black prosperity gospel preacher who has is part of the Trump campaign, the idea was to make the whole day be part of Trump continued Black Panderfest 2016. Therefore, Trump would discuss mostly African-American issues in both his speech and during the town hall forum.

There was only one little problem —

 

 

Yep. Trump’s campaign forgot to get black people to attend.

So, just to recap. Donald Trump, in an attempt to appeal to black voters, went to a predominately black church in a suburb with a large African-American population (Cleveland Heights is 42% black) only to have the event moderated by a man whose television audience is roughly one percent African-American and then had the pews packed with almost all white folks.

Sounds like a solid plan to me.
