African American conservative Shemeka Michelle, a proud Trump supporter and a rising star on social media, recently fired back at Democrat Rep. Ayanna Pressley’s statement regarding “black voices.”
“We don’t need black faces that don’t want to be a black voice,” the controversial lawmaker said, prompting Michelle to reply in a social media video, in which she voiced her support for President Trump and explained why.
Can someone ask #AyannaPressley how a Black voice sounds?

You know I approve! You have to be tough to be a conservative living in liberal cities in the US nowadays. But a conservative black woman making a choice to no longer be counted among the walking-dead? Staggering!! You have my love, admiration and respect!
