NEW YORK–(ENEWSPF)–October 27, 2016
Trump supporter and all-around wackadoo Betsy McCaughey (pronounced McCoy, as in the famed family feud) is one of CNN’s embarrassing set pieces this election season. A quick refresher on Ms. McCaughey can be found in Bethesda 1971’s diary from this past August. Here’s a perfect passage about McCaughey’s role as the mother of the term “death panels.”
But despite Palin’s phrase-making, McCaughey was the real mother of Death Panels — a bizarro-world Daenerys Targaryen, birthing dragons that spit lies instead of fire.
‘We only brought a few so as to not waste paper
McCaughey is virtually certifiable in her defenses of the Donald, throwing out lies and always working very hard to spin story after story back to the Trump campaign’s “talking points,” which amount to: we are going to make America great again. The latest fly in the ointment for the Trump campaign is that they had a big rally the other day where Trump handed out signs reading “Blacks for Trump” and then had about three black people stand behind him during the rally, holding up the signs. He turned and made sure everyone could see he had a couple of African-American supporters. The strange thing was that one of those proud sign lifters was clearly an elderly white woman (seen in the video below). What’s the deal with that?
Brooke Baldwin: Here’s my question, lieutenant governor—and Twitter went crazy over the fact that behind Mr. Trump you had a white woman holding a sign that said “Blacks for Trump.” Why is a white woman holding that sign?
Betsy McCaughey: I have no idea but I certainly understand why many African-Americans would be for Trump. Because African-Americans have really taken it on the chin under Barack Obama’s two terms.
It’s an especially good question considering how laughable the Trump campaign’s attempts at outreach to the black communities of America have been. Here’s another shot to show you the sea of “multiculturalism” the Trump campaign was pushing that day.
After McCaughey babbled a bit more on some Trump talking points, Baldwin tried to ask the question again.
Baldwin: So just back to the question of why a white woman would be holding a Blacks for Trump sign.
McCaughey: Who knows? Maybe she was holding it for somebody else or maybe her brother — not her brother but her husband is black. She may have family members who are black. Why shouldn’t people have commonality despite having different races? That’s kind of silly.
It’s totally “silly,” Betsy. We should stop worrying about race, except Mexicans. And we should also worry about Muslims. We should also probably be afraid of the Chinese. The fact that Betsy McCaughey is a Trump “surrogate” is pretty much all you need to know about Donald Trump.
