The obliteration of the Democratic Party, that is. The first hint that Donald Trump might cut the Democrats off at the knees came on the campaign trail when he asked African-American voters, "What have you got to lose?" Yesterday, former National Football League superstars Jim Brown and Ray Lewis called on President-elect Donald Trump to find out.
Brown and Lewis praised the president-elect after the meeting at Trump Tower. They said they primarily spoke to Trump about Brown's Amer-I-Can philanthropy, which aims to keep kids away from gang violence.
"We couldn't have had a better meeting," Brown said.
"The graciousness, the intelligence, the reception we got was fantastic."
For decades the Democrats have been gatekeepers and toll collectors on the road to the American Dream, but it's these last eight years that have been most devastating to Americans hoping to travel that road -- most particularly for inner city Americans. Barack Obama has presided over a boom in taxes, regulation, and government corruption that has effectively blocked upward mobility for those in most need of it.
By partnering with talented people from a diversity of life experiences, Trump is about to change that.
Lewis, who played for the Baltimore Ravens, told reporters that Trump is committed to "helping us change what hasn't been changed." He praised the Amer-I-Can program and said he supports Trump's pick to lead the Department of Housing and Urban Development, Ben Carson.
"What we believe, with the Trump administration, is if we can combine these two powers of coming together, forget black and white. Black or white is irrelevant," he said.
"The bottom line is job creation and economic development in these urban areas to change the whole scheme of what our kids see."
What a nightmare for Democrats — an America where black or white is irrelevant. What will they do?
