Don King Drops the N-Word While Introducing Donald Trump (Video)

Hopefully this won’t damage the GOP presidential nominee’s support among black voters

GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump’s relations with the black community took another stunning leap forward on Wednesday, as Trump supporter Don King dropped the N-word while introducing the candidate.

In a church.

The boxing promoter let the racial epithet slip during a Cleveland event for Trump, who will be the first to tell you that he’s beloved by black voters.

King’s N-word moment came while he related an anecdote about deceased King of Pop Michael Jackson, USA Today reports.

“I told Michael Jackson, I said, ‘If you’re poor, you are a poor negro — I would use the ‘n word’ …,” King began.

And then he did use it.

“If you are a dancing and sliding and gliding n—- … I mean negro …,” King continued.

Can someone check this guy for signs of CTE?

At any rate, according to the paper, the gaffe drew a chuckle from Trump, who at this very moment is being adored by millions of African-American voters.

Can we get an “Amen?”
