What do the numbers 88-0-91-0 actually mean?

Unfortunately, that is not your bae’s iPhone passcode, the number your grandma wanted you to play for her down at the barbershop, nor the score of next year’s NBA Finals now that Kevin Durant and Steph Curry have teamed up. Those are the winning numbers Omarosa Manigault is currently serving up in her new role as director of African-American outreach for the Trump campaign.

In the key swing states of Ohio and Pennsylvania, both of which have major electoral college heft, the GOP’s presumptive presidential candidate Donald Trump is polling at zero percent.

Yes, zero percent.

Hillary Clinton polls at 88 percent among Ohio African-American voters compared to Trump’s zero percent, and Clinton widens that lead to 91 percent among Pennsylvania African-American voters. Trump still stands at, you guessed it, zero.

Thus the oh-so-special combination of 88-0-91-0.

Trump, with his trusty side-kick Omarosa, goes on to hold this clear polling number among African-American voters nationwide as well, including other key swing states of Florida, North Carolina, Virginia, and Nevada.

So let’s assume the euphemistic glass of Trump Kool-Aid for African-Americans is half-full. Meaning, there is no downside to zero percent polling support, and all one can do is go “all the way up,” as our favorite new rappers like to chant.

Moreover, if we take one long big sip from that same spiked glass and then open our mouths to speak, why on earth would the first words out of one’s mouth be to appoint someone like Omarosa to lead African-American outreach effort? It doesn’t make sense, not when one might argue that her personal national polling with African-Americans also hovers close to zero for so many obvious reasons that any experienced viewer of reality television or woke African-American could see.

After all, would you appoint Flavor Flav to lead a class on etiquette, or as of last night, Melania Trump to write an original political speech? Then why would you select Omarosa to lead your efforts to reach African-American voters?

The answer lies in a wicked little triangle:
