Don Cheadle publicly blasted Donald Trump on Saturday after the presidential hopeful used the death of Nykea Aldridge as a ploy to gain the African-American vote.

Nykea, who is the first cousin of NBA star Dwyane Wade, was fatally shot on Friday when two men exchanged gunfire while she was pushing a stroller through a Chicago neighborhood.

On Saturday morning, Trump tweeted out: “Dwyane Wade’s cousin was just shot and killed walking her baby in Chicago. Just what I have been saying. African Americans will VOTE TRUMP!”

Almost immediately, the Donald Trump Drag Session commenced.

Don Cheadle joined in by calling Trump a “POS.” He also told him to “die in a grease fire.”


Holly Robinson-Peete and Marc Lamont Hill also shared their reactions to the disrespectful tweet:



Trump has since deleted the tweet, but the damage is already done.
