In a Facebook video that went viral last month, CNN contributor Van Jones wondered how the contentious antics of GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump would be received if he were an African American man. “If Trump were black, we would call him a thug,” Jones concluded.
Well now, Twitter has jumped into the conversation in brilliant and hilarious fashion, coming up with other ways Trump would be vilified if he carried out his same tomfoolery as a black man.
For example, @Only4RM wrote: “#IfTrumpWereBlack 5 kids by 3 different mothers & an admitted history of adultery would NOT have Evangelicals praising his ‘family values’.”
