Donald Trump once pointed into the crowd at one of his campaign rallies and said that there was “his black.” Not only that, black Republicans really get the party going — look at the response to Kanye West. So desperate to prove that the party has not been racist, it went all out for a black university student named Quran.
The young woman posted a tweet that went viral, which said:
‘I will not hide any longer,, the left has made us feel as if us black republicans should hide!! but not anymore!!’
Quran said that, after she posted the photo of herself, her family disowned her and refused to pay her college tuition.
‘This morning is getting worse and worse.’
“Deplorable Bostonian” suggested the fellow tweeters help her out:
‘Let’s help this girl out for having the tenacity to stand up to the pressure being put on her by not only the social structure the Democrats, and the media, who tell you that if your skin has a certain amount of pigment you must conform to a certain dogma. But her own parents…
‘… Her own family has cut her off and essentially disowned her for coming out in support of our president @realDonaldTrump! Let’s welcome her to the Right side!!!’
However, it was just a farce:
‘the girl who started a gofundme pretending to be a black trump supporter abandoned by her family really hit the lick of the century. snatch that magabag tbh.’
Reformed Republic tweeted:
‘Trump is a racist, homophobic, transphobic, bigot AND YOU THINK MY BLACK ASS WOULD SUPPORT THAT ROTTING CARROT?? ridiculous. any black person can put on that ugly ass hat and say #MAGA and yall will instantly be up their ass cuz you wanna prove so hard you’re not racist’
After her tweet went viral, Quran told followers that she had set up a GoFundMe site to ask for help from the Republicans. Yet, three hours later, Quran opted out of the GoFundMe joke. The next day, she wrote on her Twitter account:
‘(H)ot take: stealing from republicans isn’t bad because republicans arent (sic) ppl.’
She laughed and told The Intelligencer:
‘I just honestly didn’t want to take their money. Yeah, I can’t pay for school but I don’t want Republican money to pay for it, I just want everyone to think I’m the finesse queen, which I am.’
The result was that Quran took down her fundraiser and returned all of the money, $150,000, she had accumulated. In addition, she showed email screenshots as confirmation.
Fortunately, her attempt to raise consciousness about Trump ignited the Twitter war she was reaching for with her MAGA-hat selfie:
‘There are the people who support me for being a black Trump supporter, there are the people who are asking me why, and then there’s the other people who saw obviously it was a troll.’
Quran’s only regret was that she wished she had taken a better photo of herself.
