Just when you think Donald Trump couldn’t be more foolish, he claims that Black people relate to him being prosecuted as a criminal. What did JAY-Z say in 1996? “It’s politics as usual.”

According to Associated Press, On Friday (Feb. 23), Trump spoke at the Black Conservative Federation Honors Gala in Columbia, S.C. It was there that the disgraced politician rambled on about relating to Black Americans as he, too, has been criminally prosecuted. You know, like every Black person in America.

He also bragged about the litany of pardons he dished out during his time in office. Then, the former president began to ramp up his misinformation. He asserted that all 91 charges against him were part of a national conspiracy spearheaded by liberals.

“I got indicted for nothing—for something that is nothing. They were doing it because it’s election interference—and then I got indicted a second time, and a third time, and a fourth time,” he expressed. “And a lot of people said that that’s why the Black people like me, because they’ve been hurt so badly and discriminated against. And they actually viewed me as I’m being discriminated against. It’s been pretty amazing. Possibly—maybe there’s something there.”

As he continued, Trump referenced the late great Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Why? No reason, just false equivalency and vibes. According to Rolling Stone, Trump then rambled on about being unfairly targeted by the “radical left.” Naturally, the controversial politician argued that his criminal history wasn’t done in vein. He insisted that he was “being indicted” for “the Black population.” He also got in his “white savior” bag and attempted a joke to tie his egregious claims together. He insisted that the “lights are so bright in my eyes I can’t see people. I can only see the Black ones. I can’t see any white ones. That’s how far I’ve come. That’s a long way isn’t it?”

“We share the dream of Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. He was great. What a speech,” he added. “Every time the radical left Democrats, Marxists, communists and fascists indict me, I consider it a great, great badge of honor. Because I’m being indicted for you, the American people. I’m being indicted for you, the Black population. I’m being indicted for a lot of different groups by sick people.”

Donald Trump recently appeared at a sneaker convention to drum up votes from the Black population. Fox News pundit Raymond Arroyo praised Trump for appearing at the convention and getting Black Americans on his side because “they love sneakers.”

“This is connecting with Black America because they love sneakers! They’re into sneakers… this is a big deal, certainly in the inner city. So when you have Trump roll out his sneaker line, they’re like, ‘Wait a minute, this is cool!'”

“He’s reaching them on a level that defies and is above politics. The culture always trumps politics. Trump understands culture like no other politician I’ve ever seen […] It’s affection on some level. I don’t think this is just for collectors. He’s connecting on a different level.”

At this point, just laugh to keep from crying.
