Jacob Rascon was reporting for MSNBC this week from Charlotte, North Carolina and saw an opportunity to interview three black Donald Trump supporters to find out why they’re voting that way. But because their response didn’t fit the narrative his, and other networks perpetuate, the interview was cut short in the nick of time.
A father, mother (Gloria), and daughter (Trina) were approached by Rascon and asked their thoughts on Trump’s inner-city policies that have been panned by critics.
“Well, I think that Trump is reaching out to all citizens including African-Americans,” Trina said. “That’s what a president should do for us. He should reach out and try to help people and address problems that are going on in our country.”
Rascon’s baiting queries continued: “Some of the criticisms have been about ‘what do you have to lose.’ What do you think about that criticism?”
