A former NFL player has declared President Tweety McTreason the “first black president” Thursday during a Black History Month round table discussion at the White House.
“Mr. President, I don’t mean to interrupt, but I’ve got to say this because it’s Black History Month: man, you are the first black president,” Former NFL safety Jack Brewer, who was a guest at the roundtable, told the president.

Brewer’s comment sparked a round of applause from the president’s other supporters who were in attendance, which included right-wing Fox News personalities Diamond and Silk and others. However, Brewer’s remarks were widely mocked on social media, with some joking: “The first orange president…maybe.”
Brewer claimed he was a Democrat all his life until he was “changed” and “inspired” by Tweety McTreason.
“You’ve changed me. You touched me. And you made my work go to another level. You inspire me. And every time I go into those prisons and I ask my guys how many of them had their sentences reduced and they raise their hands, I know I’m doing God’s work and I thank you for that,” Brewer said.
A new survey from BlackPAC found 77 percent of African Americans view Trump as a racist.
In a 2018 interview with Vanity Fair, Tweety McTreason’s former lawyer Michael Cohen recounted several racist remarks made by Trump before he was elected.
In the interview, Cohen recounted a discussion at Trump Tower when he told then-candidate Trump that the crowd at his campaign rally was predominately white.
“I told Trump that the rally looked vanilla on television. Trump responded, ‘That’s because black people are too stupid to vote for me,’” Cohen told Vanity Fair.
Cohen recalled another occasion when he once was traveling to Chicago with Trump in the late 2000s, “we drove through what looked like a rougher neighborhood.”
“Trump made a comment to me, saying that only the blacks could live like this,” Cohen recalled in the article, entitled “Michael Cohen says Trump Repeatedly Used Racist Language Before His Presidency.”
Cohen also revealed that when he and Trump once talked about the first season of Trump’s reality show “The Apprentice,” Trump was “explaining his back-and-forth about not picking” Kwame Jackson, a black investment manager as the winner.
“There’s no way I can let this black f-g win,” Trump reportedly said.
Cohen also said that after Nelson Mandela’s death in 2013, Trump called on Cohen to “name one country run by a black person that’s not a shithole.”
He then added, “Name one city.”
Cohen said the comment was remarkably similar to how Trump reportedly referred to Haiti and other African countries as “shithole countries” in 2018 during a meeting with members of Congress.
The latest NBC News-Wall Street Journal poll found only 14 percent of black voters have a favorable view of Trump, and a recent Hill-Harris X poll found 85 percent of black voters would back the Democratic nominee over the president.
