Those watching Republican presidential primary frontrunner* Donald Trump celebrate his victories at rallies where protesters of color are routinely verbally and physically assaulted might wonder: “Does he have any supporters who aren’t White?” “The Nightly Show” host Larry Wilmore answered that question on Tuesday night (March 22) when he found and interviewed six Black Trump supporters.
Wilmore asked them why they’re sticking by someone who is openly endorsed by White supremacists. Their answers range from ”I’ve lost faith in the current state of our [Democratic] Party” to “this is America, America is greedy” to “we can’t just be Democrats just because we’re Black.” Wilmore’s disbelief clearly annoys some of the interviewees, including one who is Muslim. Wilmore closes the segment with what many viewers are likely to say: “I still don’t get it.”
