The article in the Aug. 21 paper, “Trump reaches out to blacks, Latinos,” reported that Donald Trump has been working on boosting his appeal among African-American voters. He is declaring he can win 95 percent of the African American vote at the end of his first term in office, if he is elected.
I was immediately reminded of Wimpy in one of those Popeye cartoons I was so fond of as a child. “I will gladly pay you on Tuesday for a hamburger today.” African-American voters are just too smart to fall for it.
Trump supporters remind me of another saying I think is true. If you like someone they can dump a bowl of spaghetti on your head and you won’t care, but if you don’t like someone, the way they hold their fork will annoy you.
