Trump To African-Americans: Thanks For Not Voting


Enjoyed the video ladies check these swimsuits out

Trump thanks African-Americans for not voting in the election. Cenk Uygur, host of The Young Turks, breaks it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.

“President-elect Donald Trump claimed Friday night that African-Americans came through for him "big league" in the November election and said those who stayed home were "almost as good" as those who voted for him.

Trump's comments came during a rally in Grand Rapids, Michigan, the latest stop on an ongoing "thank you" tour of states where the Republican prevailed against Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.

Nationally, exit polls showed Clinton overwhelmingly winning African-Americans over Trump, 89 percent to 8 percent. Still, that was a somewhat smaller margin than President Barack Obama enjoyed in his 2012 reelection against Republican nominee Mitt Romney. Exit polls from that race showed Obama garnering 93 percent of the black vote compared to Romney's 6 percent.

"The African-American community was great to us," Trump told his crowd Friday night. "They came through, big league. Big league. And frankly if they had any doubt, they didn't vote, and that was almost as good because a lot of people didn't show up, because they felt good about me."

    funny thing is they said 10 million people that voted for obama when he won
    compared to the amount of democrats that voted for hilary. therefore trump
    has a point because people didnt vote he won

      But it doesn’t mean they love Trump, coz that’s his logic

    Hillary Clinton was a horrible candidate that everyone I know of all
    political leanings completely hated, so it’s no surprise that the
    Democratic base didn’t show up to vote for her. Maybe next time we’ll get a
    Dem candidate that’s actually tolerable but the Democratic establishment
    will likely anoint another corporate shill and rig the primaries again.

      A strong candidate doesn’t lose to Trump.

      Hillary never really campaigned in the supposed blue wall states, how was
      that going to motivate the base to vote for her.

      You people are just dickriding on the “I hate Hillary” bandwagon because
      everyone else is, she wasn’t a horrible candidate like people keep
      exaggerating. And republicans used this stupidity to help Trump get
      elected, there’s literally no excuse to not vote and just allow Trump to be
      president, you people played yourselves just as much as the Trump turds did.

      Brandon Toad – She lost to the worst major party nominee in the history of
      the United States. So, your opinion that she was a strong candidate doesn’t
      count for much. A strong candidate would’ve beaten Trump in a landslide.
      She lost.

    Although I did vote I knew I wouldn’t be getting anything from either
    candidate so that’s probably why many African americas didn’t vote. As you
    can see by these comments we have to be worried about our psychopathic
    non-black brethren terrorizing our lives with their bs.

      HelenaJ about 46% of the nation did not vote . because they think their
      votes do not count.

    This was a Jim Crow election and bad machines were placed in Michigan’s
    black precincts. Greg Palast is going to Congress with his findings

    Blacks voted during the Obama elections.
    During this election many actually voted, but the others were like ” let
    white people do their thing among themselves, they are the same anyways.
    Two sides of the same coin.”

    It is not about the black vote, and stop labeling people. She lost because
    she was corrupt and it showed.

    you just can’t take it hu? let’s take quotes out of context and make trump
    look racist? I don’t know what the point of this video really is.

    A president elect taunting that people didn’t exercise they’re right to
    vote because it benefited him, from the same party that openly admitted
    they try to restrict the votes, that’s not foreboding for democracy in the
    coming years.

    The “Thank You” in the rallies is for voters thanking Trump.

  10. Posted by Sarah, at Reply

    Crooked Hillary was the antithesis of someone worth voting for so I’d say
    anyone who saw through her crap and didn’t vote for her should be thanked
    for seeing the light.

    A lot of African-American voters DID show up…their votes DIDN’T GET

  12. Posted by Robert Phaup, at Reply

    People didn’t vote because they have jobs and they kept hearing Trump never
    had a chance.

      long live MAG I voted early but not every state can.

    Bill Clinton betrayed Blacks by signing the the Anti-Crime Legislation.
    Result? 1 in 4 Black Males are incarerated. Cannot trust the Cintons.

      Actually that bill was initiated and created by a Republican president
      named Reagan. Also the orange rapist/child molester discriminated on black
      tenants and called all black women unattractive.

    Heh, calling Trump a “child”? A self-made billionaire, entertainment and
    real estate icon, presidential candidate, Republican nominee and now a
    president elect. Probably one of the most accomplished people in American

    Man, the left is falling off a cliff, they are so fcking removed from
    reality, its painful to watch.

    • Posted by Greg E, at Reply

      with a +$300M headstart…even a child could do what you listed with such a
      head start

      Self-made? Do some research, will you. A self-made billionaire would be
      someone like Richard Branson, not Trump. Fred Trump gave Donald millions to
      play with for his so-called businesses, and gave him loans and trust fund
      access to bail him out several times out of bankruptcy. And Cenk hit the
      nail on the head when he called Trump a child; apart from Trump’s apparent
      behavior, even his first wife Ivana says he’s a cry baby.

    • Posted by Afifa M, at Reply

      seriously self made?

  15. Posted by Keyser Soze, at Reply

    Is this Cenk’s passive-aggressive attempt to shame Black people who didn’t
    vote Hillary?

  16. Posted by GrandPrince, at Reply

    People who knows about politics have voted for Trump, while Idiots voted
    for Hillary and those who doesn’t care simply wasn’t voting.

    • Posted by IV Ltd, at Reply




      Get past a 5th grade writing comprehension before calling others “idiots”,
      you dickriding cumstain.

    I hope whites realize that they just legalized pedophilia by voting and
    supporting an accused orange rapist/pedophile. Blacks don’t want to be part
    of that.
