Don Cheadle Goes in on Donald Trump for Politicizing DWade’s Cousin’s Killing

*You can count actor/director Don Cheadle among the folks pissed at Donald Trump who, on Saturday, politicized the killing of NBAer Dwyane Wade‘s cousin, Nykea Aldridge, with this tweet: “Dwyane Wade’s cousin was just shot and killed walking her baby in Chicago. Just what I have been saying. African-Americans will VOTE TRUMP!”

Cheadle quoted the GOP presidential candidate’s original tweet, writing “You are truly a POS,” and then followed up with another tweet: “Sorry. I misspelled ‘die in a grease fire.’”

Cheadle’s missives launched dozens more tweets condemning Trump. When one twitter user tweeted at Cheadle, “he didn’t send any condolences or anything , I found that to be in poor taste,” the actor wrote, “He doesn’t give a fkk. More red meat to his alt-right troglodytes.”

As Variety reports, the actor took other jabs at Trump including, “He can’t name all 50 states.”

Cheadle wasn’t the only celebrity upset by Trump’s tweet. Singer Michelle Williams tweeted at him, “An absolute disgrace.”

Trump’s tweet was a reaction to Wade, who tweeted on Friday, “My cousin was killed today in Chicago. Another act of senseless gun violence. 4 kids lost their mom for NO REASON. Unreal. #EnoughIsEnough.”

It’s obvious Trumps tweets are part of attempt to win the African-American vote. During a rally on Wednesday, he said, “Hillary Clinton is a bigot who sees people of color only as votes, not as human beings worthy of a better future.”
