Comedian Chelsea Handler referred to Ben Carson as a “black white supremacist” on her Friday show.
In a comedic segment highlighting the different types of “racists” in the United States, Handler identified “black people who think white people are better than them,” as “black white supremacists.”
She then identified Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson as one of these “black white supremacists.”
Handler also peddled fake news on her Friday show, and said that “Donald Trump’s dad was arrested after a Klan rally in 1927.”
According to the Washington Examiner, Fred Trump was indeed arrested at a Memorial Day Parade in Queens where a riot broke out and Klan members were present, but was only held “on a charge of refusing to disperse from a parade when ordered to do so” and was later discharged.
It is not apparent from the arrest record what role Fred Trump played in the riot.
