The Washington Post’s Jonathan Capehart had something important to say to black Americans today:
Black people, if you really love the Obamas, you'll vote for Hillary Clinton. https://t.co/nI10hlgky5
— Jonathan Capehart (@CapehartJ) November 4, 2016
Okay, black people. Look, I get it. Hillary Clinton isn’t Barack Obama, and the history she could make as the first woman president of the United States does not move you in the way making Obama the first African American president did. But if you love Barack and Michelle as much as you say you do, you better get over it. A “President Trump” will erase everything they have accomplished.
And concludes with this:
Stunning things happen when African Americans defy the odds. Obama knows this. Clinton knows this. But they also know that far too many black voters might sit on the sidelines because Obama is not on the ballot. And that’s true. The president isn’t on the ballot. But the Obamas — everything they stood for, everything they achieved, everything they and their family symbolize about this nation and black people — are on the ballot. All of that will be erased if Trump wins the election.
If you’re rolling your eyes at that, just wait: It gets even better. Because Donna Brazile pimped Capehart’s post on her own Twitter feed:
Black people, if you really love the Obamas, you'll vote for Hillary Clinton https://t.co/ezw7h7GJ9v

Looks like somebody’s a glutton for punishment! It’s almost as if she has no shame whatsoever. But that can’t possibly be true, can it?

@donnabrazile so this is what desperation looks like

Seems Donna didn’t think this through very well.
@donnabrazile I would think they could love the Obamas and not vote for Hillary as well…"if you really love" is emotional manipulation.

It's not enough to support politcians anymore. You must LOVE them. https://t.co/cBgMaaq6rQ

What happens to those who don’t love them? We shudder to think.

Could Brazile — and Capehart — be any more condescending?
Donna, unshackled by the restraints of faux objectivity, reveals her true race-hustling self for the world to see. https://t.co/gznZIxMqEc

@donnabrazile That is a racist statement. You don't vote for people because of skin color.

@donnabrazile Is this is real tweet. Dems truly look at black folks as pets every general election cycle. SMH

May we offer you some free advice, Donna? Shoot for a little less racism — and a lot more integrity.
@donnabrazile that is truly disgusting
