Bill Maher recently suggested, while speaking to Georgetown professor Michael Eric Dyson, that President Trump should see a rise in the polls because of all that he has been doing for African Americans lately.
“I wonder today if policy even matters to black or white,” Maher stated. “I see the things that Trump is doing. He asked Kanye to the White House. Today he was talking about maybe lifting the ban on the federal illegality of marijuana. He pardons I forget her name [Alice Marie Johnson]. You know, people are going to watch TV, and they’re going to see grateful black folks, ‘Thank you, President.’ This anecdotal way –I wouldn’t be surprised if he goes up in the polls. He’s a master manipulator.”
