Donald Trump might have met his match – at least, when it comes to saying outrageous things at political events! Don King, the legendary boxing promoter, not only said the n-word while introducing Trump, he shouted it while in a church! Click to watch.
“America needs Donald Trump,” Don King, 85, said while introducing Donald, 70, during a political event in a Cleveland, Ohio church on Sept. 21, per Politicus USA. The infamous sports figure then went on a tangent that ultimately led him to dropping the n-bomb on live TV.
“They told me…’you got to try to emulate and imitate the white man and then you can be successful,” Don said. “I told Michael Jackson…’if you’re poor, you’re a poor n***o.’ I would use the n-word. But ‘if you’re rich, you’re a rich n***o. If you are intelligent, intellectual, you’re [an] intellectual n***o. If you’re a dancing and slighting and gliding n****.'” Uh-oh. King caught himself, saying “n***o,” before ending his bizarre introduction of the GOP presidential candidate.
Having a speaker drop the n-bomb is probably the last thing Donald wanted, as the ex-Celebrity Apprentice star is trying to reach out to black voters. Donald’s opponent Hillary Clinton, 68, has a wide advantage with black voters, per KSBW, and these citizens could very well decide the next presidential election.
Donald doesn’t have the greatest track record when it comes with the African American community. He slammed the idea of putting Harriet Tubman on the $20 dollar bill as “pure political correctness” and he didn’t win any support after saying he wanted to do a Black vs. White version of The Apprentice.
Trump also came under fire for using Dwyane Wade’s, 34, personal tragedy to advance his political agenda. After D.Wade’s cousin, Nykea Aldridge, was gunned down in Chicago, Trump tweeted, “Just what I have been saying. African-Americans will VOTE TRUMP.” Voters quickly turned on him, calling Donald to apologize for his insensitive remarks. At least he didn’t drop the n-word the way Don King just did.
Are you shocked that Don King said the n-word in church, HollywoodLifers? Or is that pretty much expected when it comes to Don King.
