Donald Trump and his racism against Black folks is nothing new and he has been spewing moronic ideas prompted by his foolery for years.
During an interview with Howard Stern in 2005, he bragged about a bright idea “someone” had to pit Black and white people against each other for a season of The Apprentice. Even though we are well aware of Trump’s blatant racism, we have to admit the depths of his ignorance is still astounding.
“There was a concept thrown out by some person… nine blacks against nine whites,” Trump said on The Howard Stern Show before admitting he “liked” the idea.
“And it would be nine blacks against nine whites, all highly educated, very smart, strong, beautiful people right?”
Co-host Robin Quivers said: “Well I think you’re going to have a riot.”
Trump didn’t seem to mind that prospect in the least.
“It would be the highest rated show on television,” Trump responded.
Stern followed up with a question about what skin-tone the Black contestants would be. “assortment.”
“Wouldn’t that set off a racial war in this country?” Stern asked.
“See, actually I don’t think it would. I think that it would be handled very beautifully by me,” he said.

Donald Trump continues to baffle the masses with his utter cluelessness and his latest flub was messing up his own tribute to The Queen of Soul. Folks quickly caught wind of the ridiculous statement and went in on POTUS on social media.

While we’re certain Aretha Franklin never worked for Trump, she did manage to win 18 Grammys and sold more than 75 million albums throughout her career.
