Political commentator Angela Rye has had it with the fake news. After Sexxy Red‘s controversial comments praising Donald Trump during his time as POTUS, Rye corrected the assumptions with evidence of how maligned the politician really was.
In lengthy videos posted to X, Rye recapped the facts on the stimulus check that the rapper applauded Trump for, and the actual truth regarding the racism he has perpetuated for decades.
Words are powerful and declarations? Even more so. When folks “say it with their chests”, loud and proud…it must be true, RIGHT?!
NAH. Donald Trump is no different than Christopher Columbus. Two lost white men telling you they accomplished something the didn’t.

“To Sexyy Red and everyone else who’s found themselves in the camp for ‘Blacks for Trump,’ I would invite you to look into his record,” shared the CEO of IMPACT Strategies, a political advocacy firm. “I’m coming to you all as someone who definitely by admission politically privileged…so I am trying to step and lean into grace to meet you where you are because some of this misinformation, some of these ‘facts,’ have to be fact-checked.”
Sexxy Red originally made headlines for expressing her support for the former president to the shock of viewers of Theo Von’s This Past Weekend web show.
“Once he started getting Black people out of jail and giving people their free money,” shared the rapper. “Oh baby we love Trump, we need him back in office.”
“This video isn’t just about Sexxy Red. This video is really, or this video series, are really to ensure that Black folks who are for Trump or just might be by default understand what he’s really done or not done for us,” wrote Rye.
She continued to debunk the notions used to defend Trump, such as his pardoning of multiple Black people. She revealed that during his time as president, he actually pardoned the least number of people since 1945.
Rye’s subsequent videos dug deeper into Trump’s racist history, such as his 1973 lawsuit by the Department of Justice for housing discrimination, and his questioning of the authenticity of President Barack Obama‘s citizenship.
This is Part 2 for #SexyyRed and other Blacks for Trump: what in the hell do you have to lose? EVERYTHING.
I heard y’all on the stimulus piece. I have something coming on that ASAP, but I wanted you to get this history first. ✊🏾💕 pic.twitter.com/QmQCD8AywM
Her final video addressed the very claim Sexxy Red’s love for Trump was based on: the stimulus checks.
The political strategist went on to explain how the alleged “Trump Checks” were actually more of an act of Congress, and that President Joe Biden‘s authorized stimulus check actually amounted to more. As for if Sexxy Red’s opinion of the infamous president will change after hearing the facts, that remains in question.
