Stacey Dash is defending her BFF in her head, Donald Trump, after his Chicago rally got overthrown by protesters. 

On Dash’s Patheos blog, the actress stated that it isn’t as if Trump is condoning the violence. However, she failed to mention that he’s also not doing or saying anything to prevent it.

There’s a lot of talk about Donald Trump being violent, condoning it, or at least inciting it.

But this is a total misread of our next President. First of all, he’s not responsible for what every random guy does—out of thousands. (And by the way, I don’t condone the violence that has happened so far.)

Second of all, he’s not violent, he’s just “street.” He was born in Queens. Of course, that doesn’t mean he was hustling on the street, dodging bullets. I know he had a privileged upbringing that no doubt isolated him from much of the violence and strife that some people grew up with in the city.

Dash continued on to state that people’s actions have consequences and that rudeness isn’t going to be tolerated. But it seems as though she’s condoning violence, just a few seconds after writing that she wasn’t. Still clueless.

Dash also stated that Americans love Trump because of his in-your-face attitude and because he doesn’t back down. But I’d like to rephrase that and say, “Racist Americans love Trump.”

Trump and Dash are two peas in a very small, clueless pod—and two people with access to the public who shouldn’t be taken seriously.

By the way, Dash also did a parody video about her first day as Hollywood’s “director of minority outreach.” If only it were actually funny.
