When Spectrum News NY1 covered the story of President Donald Trump crashing a wedding at his Bedminster, New Jersey golf resort, their coverage was funny enough to get a shout out from The Daily Show on Twitter.
But it was not the story of the MAGA wedding that got the attention, it was the reaction of news anchor Cheryl Wills to her colleague remarking:
“You have to say, it was pretty cool that he stopped by.”
See the smoothness yourself.

That awkward moment when you’re looking for a co-sign and instead you get …

Others thought it was on point.
The correct reaction to total BS.

Black Queens are masters of saying a 1,000 words without saying a 1!

They don’t know how to be fake. Real Black Queens will toss that ‘Boy Please’ response at your ass in a minute when they aren’t with the mess. They don’t laugh when it’s not funny and won’t scratch if there’s not an itch. She’s exactly like my Mom.

Her response should be a national PSA on how to deal with Trump and his enablers.

And her colleague did not make many fans.
This is exactly what we mean when we say “White privilege.” This dude has the luxury of being blissfully unaware and unbothered by the threat that his White nationalist president poses to those of us who can’t afford to be this clueless.

Look at the smarmy grin on that guy too. He knew Cheryl wasn’t going to chat about Trump’s pharma-fueled walkabouts.
