Conan O'Brien parodies Donald Trump's outreach to black voters
In recent weeks, Donald Trump has tried expanding his message to reach out to minorities, particularly the black and immigrant communities. His characterizations of these voters’ experiences, however, are full of stereotypes and, as a result, they’re found roundly offensive by many. Conan O’Brien mocked this failure on Wednesday night with a parody Trump ad that attempted to appeal to black voters based only on the most obvious stereotypes of black culture.
“On day 1, every black person gets a free eight-ball jacket,” the fake Trump voice said. “I am gonna have positions in my cabinet for Bell, Biv, and even Devoe.”
The ad also promised to give black people “their very own bathrooms and water fountains.” In a twist on Trump’s famous slogan, the commercial vowed to “Make America Grape Again.”
“You guys love grape-flavored stuff, right?” the fake Trump asked.
