Sean “Diddy” Combs: Let's not coronate Hillary just yet

Entertainer and entrepreneur Sean “Diddy” Combs said black voters should make Hillary Clinton earn their votes. His remarks came the day after Trump visited a black church in Detroit, where the congregation gave him a standing ovation.

Trump has strong ties with African-Americans in sports and entertainment. Combs made his remarks on Al Sharpton's MSNBC show. Sharpton, too, has worked and socialized with Trump.

From Breitbart:
“I feel like we put President Obama in the White House. When I look back, I just wanted more done for my people because that’s the name of the game,” Diddy told Sharpton on the latter’s MSNBC show PoliticsNation on Sunday.
“This is politics. You put somebody in office, you get in return the things that you care about for your communities. I think we got a little bit shortchanged,” the 46-year-old mogul continued. “That’s not knocking the president. …He’s done an excellent job, you know, but I think it’s time to turn up the heat because the black vote is going to decide who is the next president of the United States.”
Black people make up one-fourth of the Democratic Party and maybe one percent of the Republican. Electing Obama was a nice milestone, but eight years later, a few black people are wondering if they should shop around when it comes to presidential candidates.

That bodes well for everyone.

Except Hillary, of course.

  1. All it takes is one percentage point.

  2. This is the beginning of rebellion. Blacks have been loyal Democrats certainly since LBJ and many since Roosevelt and they haven't got much to show for it.

    We've all asked when they'd start looking around and it looks like the time is here.

  3. "[Obama's] done an excellent job, you know,..." It would have been interesting if someone had asked Diddy what exactly has been excellent about Obama's 'leadership.'

    Still, the point is that the Demorats are losing their grip on the black community, and that's without doubt a Good Thing.

    Now we just have to get the globalists out of the Republican party so that those newly freed black people have an honest and worthwhile party to join!

  4. It's a bold, audacious move, what Donald did, but I me a cynic. I don't think it's gonna move the needle. Plantation living has its benefits. You get free food, free housing, and free lemonade. Why would you leave the plantation?

    1. Today's slaveholders are able to provide their serfs with something that the 19th century masters weren't able to provide to theirs: scapegoats.

      Presumably, the slaves of the 19th century knew who their persecutors were -- this can't be said for today's slaves who have actually sold themselves willingly.

      Today's slaves are fed just enough to remind them that they're hungry and scapegoats (police, Republicans, white people in general, etc.) are presented to them as scapegoats to explain their hunger.

      Why indeed would you expect them to leave? Can Trump move that needle in a different direction? I'm not from Missouri, but you'd have to show me before I would believe it.

  5. Blacks did far better under Reagan and both Bushes than they have done under Obungler. As far as blacks are concerned, they are living in a Great Recession. The rest of us are as well, the gummint is giving us phony numbers and the LSM is covering for them. See here.

  6. "Let's not coronate Hillary just yet"

    "Coronate"? Sounds unpleasant. Would Hillary get an anasthetic?

  7. "Let's not coronate Hillary just yet"

    Same old pre-election shakedown. Same thing Jackson and Sharpton have done for years, and now BLM is in the same league.

    Ordinary blacks will get screwed again by the Democrats, but the race hustlers will always get theirs.

    1. Is Combs a hustler? He wants more for "his people," but other than pressuring the government for handouts---of which he could expect to get a lot while others get a little---what does he do to share his good fortune with the less fortunate he claims to speak for? If he thinks America should follow the same road to ruin as Detroit so he and Jay Z-Beyonce can profit by it, then I say let the Democrats keep their blacks. Perhaps he does a lot for the black community; if so, I applaud him and wish him success.

  8. “This is politics. You put somebody in office, you get in return the things that you care about for your communities. I think we got a little bit shortchanged,” the 46-year-old mogul continued.

    Would that the Republicans ever figured that little bit of sense out.
