CNN commentator Angela Rye — a virulent left-wing Trump-hater — slammed black Trump supporters like Diamond and Silk, Pastor Mark Burns, and Trump 2020 campaign adviser Katrina Pierson.
“Who the hell are these people?” Rye screamed during a panel discussion on Don Lemon’s CNN opinion show. “Shame on you!”
Rye argued that President Trump has not done anything to help black Americans during his three years in office. She dismissed Trump’s game-changing criminal-justice reforms and the record-low black unemployment he has delivered.
Rye ranted: “Donald Trump does not have a tremendous record to stand on as it relates to criminal justice reform. He has one bill passed. I think Donald Trump does not have a strong record to stand on as it relates to black unemployment. He has Barack Obama’s record to stand on with that.”
Angela then shamed black Trump supporters: “At some point black folks have got to look themselves in the mirror and say, ‘hey, do I want to follow Mark Burns? Do I want to follow Katrina Pierson? Do I want to follow Diamond and Silk?’ Like, who the hell are these people?”
Rye continued: “You want to give Donald Trump kudos for throwing Cheez-It bits at you and then criticize the people who have spent their careers doing things for the betterment of black people and black society. If you still go over to Donald Trump after that, shame on you! Period.”
Katrina Pierson responded to the tirade in a Twitter clapback, saying people like Angela Rye are enraged because they realize that Democrats are losing control of the black vote amid Trump’s record of achievements.
Pierson tweeted: “When people get too far out of line – the Overseers are usually replaced by the Divers. Democrats are losing control of the black vote – so expect more of this crazy. @BlackVoices4DJT is here because Donald Trump is winning 4 us.”

Pierson also tweeted a link to an AP story about Rye’s preferred candidate — socialist Bernie Sanders — showing that the Sanders camp just signed a nondisclosure agreement with a black consultant who sued the campaign for racial discrimination.
Wait, what? Paging Angela Rye! 🧐 https://t.co/bpJjmfYzuA

Even liberal TV star Kim Kardashian — who is not a Trump supporter —praised President Trump’s campaign to reform criminal-justice laws, saying she’s “happy” with the strides he has made to help deserving Americans.
Trump signed the First Step Act in December 2018, ushering in commonsense reforms to make the justice system fairer and to help nonviolent former inmates transition back into society.
The legislation has been widely praised (even by Trump-haters) for benefiting black Americans, who are disproportionately impacted by the criminal-justice system.

Meanwhile, expect increasing attacks against Trump as he wins over more black voters with his accomplishment (versus the Left’s hollow, pandering words).
Three new polls indicate that President Trump’s approval among black voters has quadrupled since 2016.
Emerson and Rasmussen have Trump polling at 34%, while the Marist poll shows Trump enjoying a 33% approval among black voters. This is significant because President Trump won the electoral college in a landslide in 2016 despite scoring just 8% approval from black voters.
If Trump can get even half the figure among black voters that he’s getting now in these polls, he will easily win reelection in 2020.
“I am a proud black Trump supporter. Please do not approach me with your BS when you see me in my Trump attire. I will beat your ass.
Have a blessed day.”
