LAURA INGRAHAM (HOST): Where is that written that on any tablet anywhere that minorities have to vote Democrat? Maybe if you shake it up on the campaign trail and you expose what the Democrats have done in -- don't walk around like you're just all you want to do is pander. Pander, pander, pander. That's all you can do to the minority communities is pander to them. How about talking truth? You know the old truth to power? How about talking the truth to the minority community about what's happened? Obama certainly didn't do that, right? But he had a, he had a type of appeal that transcended a lot of issues. And it was true that, as so many have come on the show and said, there are a lot of minorities who just voted for him because he was, you know, half-black, and that was a historical milestone. And they stuck with that. But there wasn't really much of an alternative, I think, given to the people to choose from in the last election cycle. Now you have a real alternative from Hillary. There's a real alternative, perhaps, and it's either going to be Trump or Cruz.
