Black-ish is about to get Trump-ish on its Wednesday episode, titled "Lemons."

Andre “Dre” Johnson (Anthony Anderson) and his boss Daphne (Wanda Skyes), as well as his colleagues, are sitting in a conference room when Daphne brings up the subject of white women voting for Trump. Daphne asks Lucy (Catherine Reitman) why any white woman would vote for him.


“That pant-suited white woman could have been the first female president. Can someone explain how 53 percent of white women voted for the orange pussygrabber?” Daphne asks.


“Lucy, I mean, as a resident white woman, if there was ever a cue for you to talk, it would be now. Why didn’t your sisters turn out for Hillary? Why is she just staring at me?”

All eyes are on Lucy. But clearly she has a secret she's about to divulge.

“Well, first, white women aren’t sisters. We hate each other. Second, if you must know, I voted for Trump,” Lucy states.

And that's when all hell breaks loose.

“No you didn’t!” says Dre.

Daphne then points out that Lucy is complicit in supporting racism.

“Fine, as long as she knows that a vote for Trump is a vote for racism,” Daphne says.


“I’m racist?” Lucy responds. “I’m a racist?”

And we all know what's about to happen. Because every white person who has been accused of racism pulls out that one black friend card.


“Please don’t say it," Dre says.

“I have black friends,” Lucy says. “They’re real. They’re real.”

Sure, Lucy.

Black-ish airs Wednesdays (9:30 p.m. ET) on ABC.
