Charles Barkley threatens to punch black Americans who dare to wear Trump shirts

“I will bail myself out and go celebrate.”

NBA legend Charles Barkley threatened to punch any black person in the face if he saw them “walking around with Trump’s mugshot.”

Barkley made the remarks during an interview with CNN anchor Gayle King on Monday.

After King noted that Barkley would get arrested for assault if he followed through on the threat, the NBA TV personality laughed and responded, “I will bail myself out and go celebrate.”

During Trump’s recent appearance at the Black Conservative Federation's annual Honors Gala the former president remarked, “When I did the mug shot in Atlanta, that mug shot is Number 1. You know who embraced it more than anyone else? The black population.”

When asked by King about the comments, Barkley stated, “If I was at that conference I would have got up and walked out. That was an insult to all Black people.”

He added, “To compare black history, when we've been discriminated against, to his plight, first of all, he's a billionaire, and they're prosecuting him for stuff he did wrong.”

Barkley then defended his remarks saying “…well, some of the stuff is true. They did storm the Capitol, they did say that the election was stolen. Those aren't lies, Gayle.”

“He's had a great life,” Barkley continued, “He's been President of the United States. To insult black people who have been discriminated against all these years, to put them in the same category. I was just offended.”

According to a recent New York Times/Sienna College poll, with working-class voters of color President Joe Biden is only holding a 47-41 percent advantage, a group that in 2020 voted for Biden by 72 percent, according to exit polls.
