Even one of Donald Trump’s top black supporters can’t resist racist stupidity.

Pastor Mark Burns, an African-American preacher who stumps for Trump, on Monday tweeted a cartoon of Hillary Clinton in blackface — a backfired attempt to mock her appeals to minority voters.
The cartoon showed the blackfaced Clinton, holding a “#@!* The Police” sign and wearing a “No Hot Sauce No Peace!” shirt, saying: “I ain’t no ways tired of pandering to African Americans.”
Burns wrote in his tweet, apparently speaking as Clinton: “Black Americans, THANK YOU FOR YOUR VOTES and letting me use you again..See you again in 4 years.”
Black people have everything to lose if they vote for Trump
The months-old comic came from A.F. Branco, a white illustrator who boasts on his website about inking “politically-incorrect cartoons that say with humorous satire what conservatives really think.”
Branco’s other cartoons from this year show him mocking transgender bathroom use, and perpetuating the GOP conspiracy about Clinton’s supposed health problems.
Branco himself thanked Burns in a tweet for “posting my toon and getting them all excited over
at MSNBC.”
But Burns deleted the tweet and posted an apology video on Periscope, telling Trump supporters: “I really am a shepherd to God's people, and the last thing I would want to do is offend people.”

He tweeted Tuesday, though, that he still stands by “the message that we Blacks ARE being
Used by #Dems for VOTES.”
Burns deleted another tweet from the same day — a retweet of a meme showing Clinton with Photoshopped dreadlocks, under the caption, “When you need the black vote.”

The South Carolina preacher is one of the few blacks to publicly stump for Trump, and he has repeatedly defended the GOP nominee’s stunningly low poll numbers with minorities. Some polls have shown Trump’s black voter support as low as 1%.
