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.”
I am just…I am so offended by this I can barely breathe.
My prayers and condolences go out to the Wade family?? pic.twitter.com/sg8K1DuPNH

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