(lotsa prefacing trash, but gets to the proper point)
... where we are these days with Donald Trump -- in a matter of weeks, he's propelled himself into the "I wish a motherf***** would" phase of his as-yet-undeclared presidential campaign. He's talked enough smack about President Barack Obama that it's time, as Bill Cosby demanded last week on Today, for Trump to run or just "shut up." It's time that Trump talked about Obama to his face.
After a monthlong "Birther" tour that stopped at Good Morning America, O'Reilly and The View to deposit the recycled claim that under Obama, "this country is going to hell," and Trump's thoroughly debunked "doubts" about Obama's citizenship -- including his theory that the first black president's white grandparents fudged his birth records to get him on welfare -- this week Trump went on Fred Dicker's radio show and presented the caveat that he's got "a great relationship with the blacks."
Not anymore. Let's shoot it straight: Plenty of black folks appreciate a blunt-talking guy dipped in expensive suits, as much as -- if not more -- than the next person. If Trump had coupled his reality-TV and Twitter-friendly style with the tolerant social views and "You can have all this, too" team-of-me ethos that he once touted, he could have been the one candidate in the 2012 Republican field to peel away a few black votes from Obama.
While African Americans still support Obama at an 85 percent clip, contrary to popular belief, black America can roll with a lot of the criticism about the president's leadership. But once Trump started arguing that Obama wasn't American, whatever goodwill he had in blackworld up and vanished.
If Trump is even wondering, here's why his passport to black America is probably canceled:

Assuming that Trump runs as anything other than a Democrat, would he have ever had it in order to have lost it?
Being born white has a little something to do with it.
Yeah, the point is moot.
Donald lost the black vote because he’s a successful white man standing up to the black guy that’s throwing hardworking taxpayer’s money at them.
My, oh my! This is certainly troubling!
Could we just get on with ‘judging by character and not by the color of the skin.’ ??? Let the candidates speak the Truth, and those who recognize it will follow. Those who need their ears tickled by falsehoods will not.
The only reason Donald would lose the black vote is because he is not black..There I have said it..You know any intelligent black or white man are still looking into the who Donald trump really is and how can anyone know he has lost the black vote when he hasn’t even said he is running just hinted at it..
People stop listening to the Media they will make you crazy..Make up your own mind and do the research yourself..
The Repubs will win or lose based on their ability to get THEIR base to be enthused enough to show up and vote. Pandering to Obama's base will get minimal response, and lose the Repub base's enthusiasm. Best to not even try.
He lost it when they discovered he is white and might be a republican? Could it be blacks are racist?
If you think you might support Trump for President if he runs, you soon won’t, at least if you’re a conservative. Listen:
to think Trump ever had a shot at the black vote up against Obama, Prof. Gates would have to have attended a few too many beer summits...
He shouldn’t waste ONE PENNY on trying to reach black voters.
If the majority of voters had done their research, we wouldn’t have Obummer as Pres..ent right now. The majority of voters don’t have the time nor inclination to work to find out the facts. WE knew how Zero would rule and WE didn’t vote for him. Many people still think Big Media spins for the Conservatives. I’m not kidding. Clueless and stupid is no way to go through life, son (paraphrase)
He lost it when he said he was Republican. Screw ‘em....
98% of black voters are going to vote for Obama no matter who runs against him. Mainly because he’s black, and he has that stash of “Obama money” to spread around.
From one day to the next, Americans don’t know what to call THIS minority group, because THIS minority group has not decided who or what they are or want to be.
Why can’t they decide? Because being American is NOT enough for them as it is for All OTHER Americans!!!
Have you sold yourself to the enemies of the United States?
If you HAVE, what America would you rather see, INSTEAD of this prosperous, secure and racially inclusive one you hate so much?
Do you (after 30+ years of gov’t. give away’s and Affirmative Action) feel you have NO STAKE in this country?
Will you give up the victim meal ticket to endless entitlements and get with the program? (Of course, youll have to FINALLY assimilate)
Do YOU ever look at your paycheck and wonder where the tax orgy will end?
Decide who you are already!!!
Go listen to the clips. I hope everyone will. It is jaw-dropping how Trump the lib is playing us all for fools.
Trump in his own words:
