*Not that he hasn’t before, but on Wednesday in North Carolina, Donald Trump showed his true colors … again.
Here’s the deal. C.J. Cary says all he wanted to do was deliver a note to Trump urging him to be less offensive and more inclusive to four demographic groups: black people, women, people with disabilities and college students. Cary, by the way is an African-American, and says he’s an ex-Marine who also worked in Afghanistan as a civilian for the U.S. Army, reports the News&Observer.
Oh yeah, did we tell you he drove over a hundred miles to deliver his note to Trump? He walked his way toward the front rows, stood about 20-30 feet from the stage and shouted “Donald” while waving his document to try to get Trump’s attention. But apparently Trump didn’t see him as a supporter.
“He entirely mistook that and thought that I was a protester,” Cary said.
Trump’s response: “Were you paid $1,500 to be a thug?” Cary was escorted out.

As he was being shown the exit, Cary explained to a Trump security member that he just wanted to give Trump his note.
“I said, ‘I was trying to get to this doc to Mr. Donald … will you get this to Donald?’” Cary said. “He said, ‘Well dude, we’d be happy to give it to him.’” The official then accepted Cary’s request to pass along the note to Trump.
Cary’s been a fan of “Mr. Donald” for quite some time—decades even. According to the Rocky Mount Telegram, he has been corresponding with the GOP presidential candidate since 1992 when Trump replied to a letter Cary sent during Trump’s first divorce.
“I support Trump because he’s honest,” Cary said to the outlet. “You can work with an honest person and convince them their vision isn’t in the best interest of everyone. You can’t work with dishonest people. That’s why I don’t like Obama — the worst president in American history.”
We can understand Trump having some misgivings about protesters disrupting his rallies, but to jump to conclusions and call a black man – one HIS supporters – a THUG(!) is not a good look and shows the Republican candidate for what he really is: an unmitigated asshole. Yes, we said it.
Cary said he wasn’t there to protest Trump’s appearance. He just wants to see Trump act more polite and welcoming to minorities.
Only problem is, Trump was just showing his true colors.
