Trump-supporting YouTuber on MLK Day: ‘Trump is our first black president’

Mark Dice is the perfect embodiment of the deplorable Trump supporter.

Back in 1998, the American novelist, essayist, and professor Toni Morrison penned an op-ed in The New Yorker, saying that in regards to former President Bill Clinton, “white skin notwithstanding, this is our first black President. Blacker than any actual black person who could ever be elected in our children’s lifetime.” Whether or not that was an outright compliment to Clinton is up for debate, but it was a poignant commentary from one of America’s most prominent intellectuals.

Now Trump has the honor of being bestowed the title by a hack conspiracy theorist with a room-temperature IQ.

This Monday, YouTuber Mark Dice posted to Twitter a rather pathetic attempt to gin up attention.

“President Trump is our first black President,” Dice tweeted. “He’s done more to help black communities in America with more employment opportunities, better paying jobs, lower crime, and a brighter future than any president before. Even that half black one from a few years ago. #MLKDay”

Author Ben Philippe chimed in on the post, simply telling Dice, “You bore me,” to which Dice responded, “Fake news.”

Dice’s response prompted Philippe to elaborate further.

Others on the thread had a few thoughts regarding Dice’s profound stupidity.
