AFRICANGLOBE – Are Black women abandoning the Democrats to follow Donald Trump?
Video bloggers Lynnette Hardaway and Rochelle Richardson, whose latest clip is entitled “Megyn Kelly and that Damn Debate,” ripped into Kelly in the wake of her questions and accusations of the billionaire presidential candidate at Thursday’s debate.
“Okay, so it’s a day after the debates and you all know I am mad as hell,” Hardaway began. “Somebody already tried to come for Donald, so I’ve got to come for them.”
Hardaway did not appreciate Kelly’s opening question to Donald Trump, asking him to respond to comments he made on Twitter towards Rosie O’Donnell.
“Here’s the damn deal, Megyn Kelly, or Kelly Megyn, whatever your name is: Rosie O’Donnell started that whole foolishness! She was on The View and she was the one who spoke out against Donald and Donald had to come back on her!”
Hardaway stated what many viewers felt concerning Kelly’s line of questioning. “You hit below the belt, Kelly. You hit below the belt, girl. But blow on this: leave my man, Donald Trump, the hell alone! If you’ve got something you’re going to tell him, run it by us first! Run it by me first and I’ll let you know if you have permission to come for him!
“He’s gonna be the next president of the United States when you like it or not, Megyn Kelly or Kelly Megyn or whatever your name is, or not.”
Hardaway then articulated a concern of many voters and brought forth by Rush Limbaugh: that people are being paid to take Trump out. DC Whispers noted, “Some are said to have taken an even more aggressive stance by indicating Trump’s Republican rivals are to ‘take him out'” during Thursday’s debate
This was clear to Hardaway and Rochelle Richardson. “Who is trying to push you to destroy Donald Trump? Who is it? We got to get on top of who it is. … Who is after her to make her destroy Donald trump? … Leave Donald Trump alone!”
The women ended with a suggestion for Kelly’s future career.
“So I don’t know why you’re gonna make this here a part of your forum last night. You know, perhaps you don’t need to be hosting debates! Perhaps – maybe it’s time for us to file Kelly and make her go back to reporting news at the local news! Try Sesame Street! Maybe you should go back and report news for Sesame Street and have a debate with them.”
The bloggers’ posts are receiving more attention since appearing on The Hard Line with Ed Berliner earlier this week, after they produced another pro-Trump video.
“All we want you to do is make America great again. We are behind you 100 percent,” they said in their earlier video.
“The internet is chock-full of whackos, weirdos and wing nuts,” began Berliner during the interview, “but every now and then you find a nugget of common sense. We did.”
The women called Trump a “breath of fresh air” during the interview. “Now we have a leader,” said Hardaway. “We have someone that can lead us, secure that border, bring jobs back to America, so people can not only survive, but they can also thrive in this country. And that’s what we need! We need a leader in this country.”
Berliner asked, “Why Donald trump? What is it the Donald said or did that made you ladies say, ‘that’s the guy’?”
“He resonates with us,” Hardaway replied. “Even though we’re African-American, we are part of the silent majority. We stand with them. With all the political correctness in this country, we need someone who’s gonna say hey, we’re gonna look out for the American people. … He carries himself like a leader.”
“I believe he would take and turn this American nightmare into the American dream,” added Richardson. “That’s why Mr. Donald Trump resonates with me. He’s a businessman. And from one businessman to a businesswoman, we just resonate like that together.”
Tea Party activist Katrina Pierson posted the duo’s video on Facebook, saying, “People don’t know how much support the Donald has with Black Americans. (they may not want to know).”
The women’s views were appreciated by many readers on their Facebook page. Typical comments included:
- “You ladies are great!”
- “Loving you two. Power to the Donald.”
- “Wonderful! I feel the same way. Donald is my man too. I’m a sister from another mother but we have a lot in common. Megyn was way out of line and so were the other two. I wanted to see a debate where each candidate got to talk about issues important to this country; not the personal quirks of Ms. Kelly. Go girls; I’ll be watching.”
- “Ladies, If anybody messes with me, can I call you for backup? Love you both!”
