PRIMETIME NEWS: Obama suggests rap music contributed to Trump’s support among Black men
No word on if Johnny Rotten’s support contributed to Trump’s support among white men

quote:

Ahead of the Nov. 17 release of his memoir, A Promised Land, Barack Obama chatted with The Atlantic about the 2020 election and the state of American politics, among other topics.

While discussing populism in the country's political fabric, the former President brought up Trump's increase in support among Black male voters, implying that the luxurious nature of rap music could be a factor. “People are writing about the fact that Trump increased his support among Black men [in the 2020 presidential election], and the occasional rapper who supported Trump,” he told the publication.


quote:

“I have to remind myself that if you listen to rap music, it’s all about the bling, the women, the money," he continued. "A lot of rap videos are using the same measures of what it means to be successful as Donald Trump is. Everything is gold-plated. That insinuates itself and seeps into the culture.”

Election polls saw an estimated 20% of Black men voted for Trump this year, two percentage points higher than the 18% who voted for him in 2016.

Why are people still talking about trump? He’s on the wrong side of history. Biden won by the largest landslide ever and is president now. Y’all need to stop sky screaming

Obama employing selective memory again. Did he forget about rappers like Snoopy dog posing over a dead Trump body? Twitter is littered with black musicians constantly calling Trump racist and all kind of nonsense.

You could have an experiment where you just swap Obama's name out for Trump's.

Obama: Poli Board hates it, Media loves it
Trump: Poli Board loves it, Media calls it racist

I would say the decades of failures and lies by white liberals to blacks led to more voting Trump.

So they admit he improved in so many demographics, that he had the support, the enthusiasm...a 52% approval rating, recovering economy...

But they expect us to believe that that perpetual pedo politician, the crime Bill creating, China coddling dementia case of Joe Biden, who couldn’t fill a couple dozen chairs, got more votes than any president in history?

Do they really think people are that stupid?

He's not wrong.

Could you imagine if a white dude said it?

If you read it in Obama's voice it's not that hard.
