Trump Uses 2014 Tweet From Conspiracy Theorist To Brag About ‘Low Black Unemployment’ And The Response Was Spectacular

Donald Trump is being dragged all over Twitter for using a three-year-old tweet from a right-wing conspiracy theorist to brag about “low black unemployment.”

On Saturday, Trump tweeted: “So true Wayne, and Lowest black unemployment in history!”

The tweet that Trump was flagging here was from Nov. 7, 2014, days after that year’s midterm election.

“This is what it’s all about! It’s ok 2 b black, conservative and love America and not vote Democrat! Freedom exists!” Dupree wrote on Twitter in 2014.

Naturally, many people are wondering: Did he just remember that tweet from 2014? If so, why did he send it out with the message touting the “lowest black unemployment in history” as if it happened today? Did somebody else send it to him today, making him think it was today because he never bothered to look at the timestamp? Did his social media assistant Dan Scavino surface it for the commander in chief and not tell him when it was from?

So many questions… But perhaps the biggest question of all is who is Wayne Dupree, the man Trump so affectionately refers to by his first name alone?

As noted by Think Progress, Dupree is a right-wing conspiracy theorist and radio host who promoted the notion that grieving parents during the Sandy Hook massacre were actually “crisis actors” hired to promote the New World Order agenda of imposing gun control.

Dupree has also attacked the student survivors of last week’s Parkland massacre who have spoken up in recent days about a desire for new gun laws, saying that the student survivors and activists are also paid “crisis actors.”

If his elevation of Dupree and known affiliation with Alex Jones is any indication, Trump is more likely to move further in the direction of an anti–Parkland student conspiracy theory than to ever actually correct the record on any of this.

The responses were brutal:
