Just when you think Donald Trump can’t be more desperate and crass, he manages to outdo himself.

Trump ruthlessly used the tragic shooting death of Chicago Bulls player Dwyane Wade’s cousin to pander to black voters. Adding insult to injury, the presidential candidate couldn’t even bother to his spell correctly.
“Dwayne Wade’s cousin was just shot and killed walking her baby in Chicago. Just what I have been saying. African-Americans will VOTE TRUMP!” the 70-year-old tweeted.
The tweet comes just one day after 32-year-old Nykea Aldridge was shot and killed in the Chicago’s South Side. The mother of four was pushing her 3-week-old daughter in a stroller when she was tragically hit with stray bullets. “My cousin was killed today in Chicago,” Wade, who grew up in Chicago, tweeted Friday night. “Another act of senseless gun violence. 4 kids lost their mom for NO REASON. Unreal. #EnoughisEnough.”
Gun violence in the city of Chicago has been an ongoing epidemic in the city of Chicago for years, but we’re not quite sure what The Donald was trying to achieve with this statement. As expected, that tweet did not go over well.
Dwyane has yet to respond to the senseless tweet. Perhaps if we all ignore Trump, he will go away.
