JOHARI OSAYI: THE ACCIDENTAL PROTESTER


Johari Osayi was invited to a Donald Trump rally by a friend whose family had planned to go but then bailed out at the last minute. Osayi apparently went to the rally just so she could say she'd been to see a presidential candidate at least once in her lifetime.

When she and and a few friends, one with a name that sounds Latinx, Gabby Chavez,  got to the rally, somebody from Trump's camp asked them if they wanted to sit in the VIP section. 




Let's think about this for a minute. Hmmm... Why would the very, very white Trump camp want a few black and brown nobodies to sit int the VIP section? Hmmm... I'm confused. No wait!  I know!  Maybe the VIP section is the section up front where the television cameras are going to pass by a lot?

Yes well, this little plan orchestrated by Trump's people back fired once Osayi saw how badly some "Dump Trump" protesters were being treated and heard just a little bit of what Trump had to say.
