Donald Trump stunned many people with his rambling and crazy press conference on Thursday, particularly the exchange with veteran black journalist April Ryan, who asked him about meeting with the Congressional Black Caucus.
Ryan wanted to know if he would meet with the CBC to discuss ways to help inner city communities.
Trump responded, “Well I would. Do you want to set up the meeting? Do you want to set up the meeting? Are they friends of yours? Set up the meeting!”
WTF? This is beyond insulting. Um, not all black people know one another and black reporters aren’t secretaries. Um, f*ck you Donald Trump, you racist POS!

Um, the Congressional Black Caucus clapped back tweeting: “Hi,
@realDonaldTrump. We’re the CBC. We sent you a letter on January 19, but you never wrote us back. Sad!” LMAO!

I don't think trump knew that CBC stands for Congressional Black Caucus. Good thing April Ryan explained it to him.

Donald just assumed a reporter is friends with Congressional Black Caucus members because she's black. He's racist scum.

“I’m super not-racist and I’ll prove it by asking the first black person I encounter if she’s friends with the Congressional Black Caucus.”
