Larry Wilmore, the host of the Comedy Central program “the Nightly Show,” recently sat down with Black supporters of Donald Trump. The late-night comedian asked some serious and not so serious questions of his gathered group and why they support Trump for president.

    Equality right to chose allegedly vote whom ever Democrats don’t go there with me! Irate false connotation of equality Democrats no rats,majority protecting co-dependency specifically governmental assistance haven’t change. Power balance of America problem false believe some Black interest groups actually socialist. Refuse allow individualism Trump or Hillary whom biggest liar as Obama told. Black groups “Stop Crying” admit this Obama gain entrance to White doors since couldn’t find White warrior LGBTQ rights. Think twice state legislature going oppose rights seldom write this. Among American LGBTQ front where divided conservative front supports Hillary? I don’t insult NAFTA and 16yrs sellling LGBTQ to middle class females males adverse detest strength of LGBTQ society! Hip hop is enemy of independence of Blacks another factor where is care of Black middle class merchant class. Democrats passed laws to protect criminals damage trust why divided agenda heritage or national why. Blacks voting non-Democrat Obama 8yrs bought fears empower false belief others. Diversity is challenge ideology of USA’ forcing this upon EU never work basically right. Chose whom others to interfere advocating rights to disassociate repugnance “telling everyone” vote Democrat. Blacks are majority candidates not giving a damn about economic stagnation of America Democrats only see diversity empowerment. Conflict merchant elite whom controlling elector ballots give your votes revoke your rights!
