Don King Said What at A Trump Rally?!

Veteran boxing promoter Don King has joined Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump on an Ohio campaign swing Wednesday.

Bloomberg reports that King called Trump “an American to save the nation” at a campaign event at New Spirit Revival Center, a largely Black church in Cleveland.

“He’s fearless, he’s courageous and brave and bold enough to take on the system,” King said. “All things are possible with God.”

 That wasn’t all King let escape from his lips. When introducing Trump at an African-American outreach event in Cleveland, King discussed the need for African-American entrepreneurship when he said, “I told Michael Jackson, I said, ‘if you’re poor, you are a poor negro — I would use the n-word…if you are a dancing and sliding and gliding n***er…I mean negro…”

“The party doesn’t want him, the system doesn’t want him, the lying politicians don’t want him,” King continued as Trump chuckled behind him. “We need Donald Trump, especially black people,” said King, who is African-American. “They told me, you’ve got to try to emulate and imitate the white man and then you can be successful so we tried that.”

He said he told Michael Jackson, “If you’re poor, you are a poor negro. I would use the n-word. But if you’re rich, you are a rich negro. If you are intelligent, intellectual, you’re an intellectual negro. If you’re a dancing and sliding and gliding nigger — I mean negro — you are a dancing and sliding and gliding negro,” King said.

I’m not even sure what happened here, but it’s definitely not needed.
