Recently, the campaign for presidential candidate Donald Trump said that it had intentions of getting 100 percent of the Black vote.

We all know that’s crazy talk, but he does have his supporters within the community.

And in the interest of airing them out, here is a list of the 10 Black folks who are #TeamTrump2016. Please note that Omarosa, Dr. Ben Carson, the National Black Republican Association and Tootsie Roll and Blow Pop, also known as Diamond and Silk did not make the list. As that’s like saying water is wet.

Azealia Banks

When she is not beating up people on airplanes and dodging Erykah Badu’s locator on Twitter, she is making ass-backwards political endorsements for bigoted candidates for bizarre reasons.

According to the Huffington Post, earlier last month the “212” singer got on Twitter and said:

Um, yeah…
See, this is what happens when our folks tease each other for being different. Folks get vengeful and start plotting Rome’s burning.

Mike Tyson

According to the New York Post, Tyson and the orange toupee wonder have a long history together. It’s a history that dates all the way back to the time when Trump had unsuccessfully conspired with Tyson’s then wife Robin Givens, her mother and Don King to rope the troubled boxer into an extended contract to buck fight at Trump’s casinos behind his back.

Well, it appears that all has been forgiven and forgotten as Tyson has gone on record plenty of times to throw his support behind Trump 2016.

As he told the Daily Beast earlier this year:

“Yeah! Hell, yeah,” he exclaims of Trump 2016. “That sh-t is the real deal. Listen: I’m a black motherf–ker from the poorest town in the country. I’ve been through a lot in life. And I know him. When I see him, he shakes my hand and respects my family. None of them—Barack, whoever—nobody else does that. They’re gonna be who they are and disregard me, my family. So I’m voting for him. If I can get 20,000 people or more to vote for him, I’m gonna do it.”

And as he told the New York Post late last week:

“I think it’s a pretty awesome thing that he’s doing so well,” Tyson said. “People are combining together to make sure he doesn’t win. He’s probably telling himself, ‘They hate me more than they hate [President Barack] Obama.’ You know it’s crazy when people who fought so hard to get rid of Obama would now rather keep him because they hate Trump more than they hate him.”

See, this is what happens when you take too many hits to the head.

Dennis Rodman

 

In June of last year, the former Chicago Bulls superstar and Young Thug’s long-lost father tweeted out to his followers:

Thankfully, Rodman is an illegal alien from the planet Craytonia, which means he is not eligible to vote in the presidential election.

Terrell Owens

Owens was one of the very first celebrities to come out in support of the Trump campaign. And as the chronically unemployed wide receiver told TMZ back in June of last year:

“This may be what the country needs and Trump … he’s a guy who won’t put up with B.S. and has what it takes to change how government is run.”

“With that being said, Trump … YOU’RE HIRED”

Owens adds, “Plus, as the president, Trump would be able to say he knows me and he likes me … LOL!”

Terrell says he’s got no beef with President Obama — and thinks he’s truly helped change the country for the better — but says moving forward, he likes Trump.

BTW, earlier this year, Owens appeared on “TMZ Hollywood Sports” and made his pitch for a job in Trump’s administration if he’s elected.”

I bet he did. See, this is what happens when brothers are out of work and have too much idle time on their hands.

Jimmy McMillan (Founder of The Rent Is Too Damn High Party)

As reported by the New York Daily News earlier this year:

The flamboyant founder of the Rent Is Too Damn High Party has endorsed moneybags landlord Donald Trump for president.

Jimmy McMillan made the stunning announcement Friday.

Rent at his candidate’s glitzy Trump Tower runs about $6,000 per month for a one bedroom.

The affordable housing advocate said his interest in veterans’ issues trumped his passion for tenants’ rights.

He’s a Vietnam vet who has struggled with post-traumatic stress.

Trump, who did not serve in Vietnam, has touted his commitment to war veterans and claimed Thursday he raised $5 million for veterans groups.

“He’s the only one who is supporting my brother veterans which is good enough for me,” McMillan told the Daily News on Friday.

See, this is what happens when you know you’re going to be late on rent for the next four years, so you try to get in good with the landlord by endorsing his campaign for president, and do so in hopes that he will let you slide for a couple of months until Roger and Rerun come up with their share…

Rev. James David Manning

When Pastor James Manning, founder of the Harlem, New York-based ATLAH Worldwide Missionary Church, isn’t calling out President Obama for being a long-legged Mack Daddy, he is spreading the gospel about the best thing the Lord ever did for the planet earth. No, I’m not talking about Jesus. I’m talking about Donald Trump whom Manning has called “Black people’s hero.”

In fact, Manning was one of the 100 Black pastors who met with and prayed over Donald Trump last year during his pastoral summit.

See, this is what happens when your pastor is bat-crap crazy. Anyway, you can watch his endorsement speech here:

Joel Osteen and Paula White

Of course, neither of these two religious leaders are Black. However, both do happen to lead congregations that are either racially mixed or predominately Black.

Oh, and they both are instructing their flock to vote for Donald Trump. Here is a link to a video from late last year of Joel Osteen praising Trump on a Fox News radio show.

And here is a video from last week of Pastor Paula White giving the Word at a Trump rally in Orlando, Florida:

Latrell Sprewell

While the former NBA bad boy hasn’t come out directly to endorse Trump, one of the very first tweets he made on the social media site was a “congratulations” to Trump after his major win in the Nevada caucus.

See, this is what happens when you’re new to Twitter, and you don’t know who to talk to.

Herschel Walker

After announcing last year that he was #TeamTrump2016, the former NFL player, and Celebrity Apprentice star remains pretty much on the bandwagon.

According to TMZ:

“Look, we can’t build a wall and not let people in the country,” Walker tells TMZ Sports … “But we do have to get this country safe. We have to quit being politically correct.”

“We have to do what’s right to save America … I guarantee you [Donald] would do better than a lot of people in office now. That I can tell you for a fact.”

“Donald has said what he’s said, but his numbers haven’t gone down. That’s a sign he is saying the things that people think, but are afraid to say themselves. Donald is saying what people want to hear.”

See, this is what happens when we ask random celebrities their opinions on matters they likely should not be speaking on.

So what have we learned from this list?

Black unemployment is high and folks will do and say just about anything to get paid.
