Rep. Kingston: Black voters prefer ‘[campaign] backdrop with a burning car’
Stay classy, Rep. Jack Kingston!
Former Rep. Jack Kingston, who is now a top Trump surrogate, made an appearance on The Situation Room to discuss Donald Trump’s outrageous claims about “inner cities,” and how he would “get 95 percent of the Black vote after his first four years.”
Kingston tried to claim that Trump was going out to their communities to talk to them directly, but Keilar was having no part of that. She stopped him short, saying, “I have to stop you because you said he’s going there. He’s not, he’s in Diamondale, which is 93 percent white. When he was in Milwaukee the other day, it was part of Milwaukee that wasn’t dealing — I mean, it’s almost completely white.”
Kingston retorted, “Maybe it would have been nice if he went and had a backdrop with a burning car.”
