Earlier this week at a Trump rally, Twitter went nuts over the "Blacks for Trump" sign, because it was being waved around by a white woman.

CNN's Brooke Baldwin decided to investigate, so she turned to the ever-present and always-wrong Betsy McCaughey, who had answers!

First, she had no idea but African-Americans should be for Donald Trump because the black president hasn't been good for them and they all live in a hellscape!

That didn't go over too well with Brooke, who really wanted an answer. So Betsy thought, and she thought, and finally she came up with one.

"Who knows? Maybe she was holding it for somebody else or maybe her brother," she spluttered. Oops, maybe not! "Not her brother but her husband is black. She may have family members who are black."

The side-eyes must have been epic from Angela Rye and Brooke Baldwin, because she dug herself in deeper.

"Why shouldn't people have commonality despite having different races? That's kind of silly."

But really, Betsy explained, it's all President Obama's fault the white lady had a Blacks for Trump sign. Because hellscapes and inner cities. Thanks Obama.
