CNN’s Angela Rye to Black Trump Supporters: ‘Pity On You’

Network political commentator Angela Rye said Wednesday on CNN’s “Tonight,” that African-American advocates of President Donald Trump need to repent.

When asked about the Trump campaign’s outreach to Black citizens, Tara Setmayer said, “Well, I believe it’s wise of them to do this. They think– it holds true, he only requires a couple of portion points. He over-performed last time with black citizens that individuals didn’t see coming. He had much better numbers than McCain did or Romney. It’s a wise play for them politically. They have the money to do it. How much effect it really has remains to be seen. You know, how you do this, the method you message things makes a substantial difference. The president does have criminal justice reform, a minimum of as something tangible that he can enter into these neighborhoods with. However that has to do with it. Although the black joblessness, which we hear constantly over and over again, however I do not understand that Black America’s looking at this stating, ‘yeah, we want four more years of this guy’ when all the other disobediences, racial transgressions that come out of his mouth and this White Home are just too much.”

Rye stated, “I think Donald Trump does not have a strong record to stand on as it relates to black joblessness. He has Barack Obama’s record to stand on with that, and I think that at some point, black folks have got to look themselves in the mirror and say, hey, do I want to follow Mark Burns?

She included, “Rather, you want to provide Donald Trump kudos for tossing Cheez-It bits at you and then criticize the individuals who have invested their careers doing things for the betterment of black individuals and black society. And I would simply say at that point, if you still go over to Donald Trump after that, shame on you.
