Byron Allen slams Obama in this impromptu interview on his effectiveness as a black president.
Byron Allen has branded President Barack Obama ‘a white president in blackface’.
The comedian, who is also black, gave a rambling interview to TMZ about Obama’s description of rioters in Baltimore as ‘thugs’, which he said was unjustified.
He accused the president of not acting ‘like a black man’ and of failing to ‘stand up’ for the African American community, which is being ‘failed by the system’.
