Donald Trump went full “Trump” during a rally Friday in Redding, Calif. During his speech, Trump decided to draw attention to someone in the audience.
“Oh, look at my African American over here,” Trump yelled. “Look at him. Are you the greatest? You know what I’m talking about?”
Trump then started to talk about a black U.S. airman who punched a Trump protester in the face at a March rally in Tucson, Ariz.
“This African American gets up, and man, he slugged these guys. He slugged them,” Trump said.
“He slugged this guy wearing the Ku Klux Klan outfit, but by the time he got up to the top, you couldn’t see it was a Ku Klux Klan outfit. So when the African American coldcocked this guy, this guy never know what happened. Everybody thought the African American was against me, and it was the opposite,” Trump continued. “He was this great guy, military guy. We have tremendous African-American support. The reason is I'm going to bring jobs back to our country.”
Trump's spokesperson Hope Hicks told CNN that he didn't mean anything by it. "He’s just referring to a supporter in the crowd; there's no ill will intended, obviously," Hicks stated.
But social media isn't buying it.
No, we don't know what you're talking about, my Caucasian.
