MSNBC reporter Jacob Soboroff did a segment Thursday morning (if you want to call it that) in which he paraded around a Chinese-American Donald Trump supporter in order to then be confronted by other Asians for his political views in a chastising manner. The Chinese-American was David Wang of Southern California. Wang is the founder of Chinese-Americans for Donald Trump and the group has close to 2,000 members and growing.
“Trump he’s for real,” Wang said about Trump. Soboroff asked Wang what people at Trump rallies think about his shirt, which reads Chinese-Americans Love Trump. “They love me. I’m like a Panda Bear there because there isn’t that many Chinese-Americans there,” Wang said.
Of course, Soboroff simply couldn’t leave it at that. The MSNBC reporter then chose to parade Wang around to other Asian-Americans only, to simply hound on if they liked the shirt Wang was wearing. He was brought over to Chinese-American Isabelle, a Bernie Sanders fan, who thought Wang’s shirt was a joke and “kind of creepy.”
Soboroff then continued to persist Wang into confronting other Asians on the streets. Clearly, Soboroff was trying to find more “Isabelles” to shut down Wang’s. But probably unexpectedly for Soboroff, most of the Asian Americans they encountered were Trump fans and supporters. Wang even told Soboroff at one point if he’s given 30 minutes with someone, he easily makes them into the biggest Trump fans. The only Asian American who was a Hillary Clinton fan in the segment was a Chinese woman who could not speak English.
Soboroff then gets a vocal pat on the back for his “hard hitting” reporting from his MSNBC correspondent, and ends the segment with the overly dramatic title “Chinese-Americans Facing Resistance Over Trump Support.” However, it easy to see Wang has started a strong and productive organization, regardless if MSNBC tries to undermine its unity.
