2. The Twitter thread is on FIRE

Leah McElrath 🏳️‍🌈 (@leahmcelrath) Tweeted:
Look at the tension in this Black bystander woman’s smile and hand/wrist.

She’s (understandably) having to put a lot of effort into restraining herself.

This is the kind of unconscious energy people who are not white men have to exert pretty much all the time just to exist. https://t.co/HppCQcrssg

It would be hilarious if it weren't so maddening (much like the last 3 years of all of our lives...)

19. Lol. "I'm an atheist, but even so God is testing me."

She looks like she's used to handling it at least.

The OP picture's a hoot, and I love it, but there's also some denial. This is a black event.

“Black Americans have never had a better champion than President Trump,” Katrina Pierson, senior advisor at Donald J. Trump for President Inc. “The Black Voices for Trump coalition will be a national effort to mobilize and empower Black Americans who support President Trump to help get the message of ‘Promises Made, Promises Kept’ into communities across America.”


So what? They’re Muslim.: Ms. Pierson in an interview when asked about the Donald Trump's proposed ban on Muslims visiting the United States.

Ms. Pierson, and other members of this little group, are as poignant a proof of equality under the skin in their depressing way as are AA of integrity and decency.

If they can name one African American that has ever been a guest in their home.

8. There has been some confusion as to which phone booth they're meeting in

But once they get that straightened out, you'll see an incredible, fabulous* outpouring of support for Donald Trump.

*Note that the etymological roots of these two words are "not credible" and "more like a fable than the truth," respectively.

16. Phone booths are pretty scarce these days.

They'll have to find a not-too-cluttered broom closet, or maybe an airplane bathroom.

Or at least they know the names of a few black people. That counts, doesn't it?

29. Fat Donnie: "Look at my African American over here. Look at him. Are you the greatest?""



He actually said it about Gregory Cheadle, who no longer supports Trump because of "his unambiguous racism." Did you just figure that out, Greg?

Bring out the Purell, staff!

36. A Reminder

Nick Jack Pappas (@Pappiness) Tweeted:
As Trump launches "Black Voices for Trump," a subtle reminder that the strongest voices in 2016 were the 94% of black women who voted against him.
