Broadcaster Charles Barkley flew off the handle on live television.

His co-host had to immediately do damage control.

Now NBA legend Charles Barkley is in hot water after this racist rant against Trump supporters.

The mugshot that former President Donald Trump took when he was booked at the Fulton County Jail in Georgia quickly went viral on social media.

Trump turned the tables on Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis by using the mugshot in fundraising pitches, which helped him bring in one of the best hauls in this Presidential campaign.

T-shirts, hats, and other products were created featuring the famous mugshot.

Charles Barkley threatens to punch black conservatives

NBA Hall of Famer Charles Barkley went on a racist tirade where he threatened to punch black Trump supporters if he saw them wearing a t-shirt with the former President’s mugshot on his CNN show King Charles.

A clip was played of Trump speaking at the Black Conservative Federation Honors Gala in South Carolina last month.

The former President said that the bogus criminal indictments caused black voters to sympathize with him.

“You know who embraced more than anybody else? The black population,” Trump told the crowd. “It’s incredible. You see black people walking around with my mugshot — you know they do shirts.”

Barkley lost it after the clip was played.

“First of all, I’m just gonna say this,” Barkley said. “If I see a black person walking around with a Trump mugshot, I’m gonna punch him in the face.”

His co-host Gayle King jumped in to do damage control.

“Charles. Charles, you really can’t say that ’cause, A. you don’t mean that,” King interjected.

“Oh, I mean that sincerely,” Barkley fired back.

“And then you will be arrested for assault, and then what?” King asked.

“I’m gonna bail myself out and go celebrate,” Barkley responded.

The audience laughed at Barkley’s meltdown.

“Don’t encourage him,” King told them.


The Left is constantly attacking black conservatives like Justice Clarence Thomas for not toeing the line.

Charles Barkley does damage control

The NBA Hall of Famer was forced to do damage control for threatening black Trump supporters.

He gave an insincere apology that it appeared CNN’s management forced him to make.

“Number one, obviously, I’m not gonna go around punching random strangers in the face – first and foremost. Secondly, people can vote for who they want to. People can vote for who they want to,” Barkley said.

He reiterated his disdain for black Trump supporters later in the show.

“I want to make it perfectly clear . . . If you’re a black person and you wearing a Donald Trump mugshot, you are a freaking idiot. And I’m only saying freakin’ idiot ’cause they won’t let me say what I really wanna say. But you can figure it out. It starts with an F,” Barkley ranted.

Across a slew of polls, Trump’s support among black voters has gone up, especially with black men.

The bogus charges of racism against the former President lobbed by the media aren’t working.

And the Left is furious that they’re losing support from black voters that they think they’re entitled to get.
