In this interview with Don Lemon from last night, Trump says that the reason blacks are protesting his rallies is that they’re unemployed.
Watch below – his comments are in the first part of the interview:
This is just his latest statement that makes absolutely no sense in context with his other statements. For instance, he says that these people were all organized by MoveOn.Org, a left-wing activist group:
The organized group of people, many of them thugs, who shut down our First Amendment rights in Chicago, have totally energized America!

And he’s right – they did agitate a lot of this. But how is that the result of unemployment? He’s clearly just trying to sound less aggressive on national television, even as his rallies and his supporters become more violent.
