I've done was.
Involved with the GOP executive committee in North Carolina he was.
On The Daily Show.
Recently got a lot of attention and and done I guess they've asked you to step down since then what happen.
They told me before I even the day asking that they wanted me really sad.
And the local chairman until we do.
We won't believe the party's rock solid state chairman and he's dead and they didn't want me to leave the party not not only departed they -- -- -- that.
-- do you think -- anything wrong.
We are live going on a comedy show.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- around the and I did some wrong but I don't think I did anything wrong I didn't think The Daily Show everybody knows it's a comedy and apparently.
And you know is all forms of media you have to do it everybody does -- they have an agenda they want to get across.
We were you misrepresented on -- Yes I -- there was some presentation without -- share.
But you're actually said that if they actually put in all the stuff you said it would -- even worse and it was.
No I guess it just.
They did not put in what -- -- -- because they wouldn't let me put in the explanations they.
We'll tell you I'll say here what -- enough for zevil one of the things you said well.
I mean here's here's just a little bit in terms of what the GOP I gestured like here's a part of well what happen.
Matter of fact one of my best for -- It is.
My approach this block this.
When I was young man you didn't call -- black the black -- ultimately -- -- had a picture what time Obama's it was tough as a witch doctor.
An up close they don't face the nation I was making and so a lot of mile wide path both Obama not the black bag it now you have.
A black person using the term big it is clear that it is okay -- -- to do it went what was left out of the.
I was glad to have any peace he replayed and you'll notice.
There was a -- a lot of happy and laughter.
When I first made the comedy yes my best friend is black I did not say that isn't right shoulder and yes it.
I didn't have the joke of Obama's sit moments -- dressed like a witch doctor.
And I get this year.
It is pretty black and maybe won't this played North Carolina.
Called me a message out TV -- wouldn't do stuff like that there's been over two years ago well.
Yeah well Heidi but Harris at the white part of him you're my king -- he's just as a witch doctor.
Which is associated with the -- Africa.
Well let -- occasional start.
As here's what happened.
She told me she -- they just do much animosity between black black and dark -- period between blacks and blacks.
And so at that time I had an Internet radio show she and added a complete -- show.
Within and between.
Blacks on blacks and watch -- we had a great time talking about it so that.
That -- that was cut out neither Deschanel.
Internationalize they've been eight years that things were taken and modified.
And -- -- -- and didn't fail.
My amateur there how a portraying Obama as they witch doctor makes fun of the white part of.
-- -- Because that toderat out make -- bit about what I have -- -- black -- But by the witch doctors associated win.
With being black and -- you know things coming out of Africa now with white people.
-- already got to be black to be a witch doctor.
-- general I think that's what the perception is yes and yeah.
Let's not not true.
What do you think badly you've got -- -- -- -- if you look at what people are -- Give -- white you know -- white witch doctors.
I don't know a lot of wind -- changed.
-- split -- up which doctors.
And then and then of course this got a little problem.
Got into a little trouble when you talked about the voter ID laws.
While it's gonna kick the Democrats in the book.
If it hurts a bunch of college kids is too lazy to get up off their vote on prison and go get a photo ID so they interact rats if it hurts -- why it's so be it if it hurt so much so lazy blacks it won't have the depth and give her that.
So be it I guess the perception there -- you can think blacks -- -- Know that the centenary debated -- these ladies did indeed look -- -- -- rat bait.
-- don't think about best of what the whole comment with the bat I think there again everybody zeros in on the black.
Lazy black and ignore that has been lazy college he'd rather go ignored Al meg totally -- -- -- -- -- This is the most -- dean of the facts.
Well and and then it seem like you're bemoaning the fact that blacks can use the N word.
But white people don't you know people like Al Sharpton and other blacks who were prominent have spoken out about nobody being able to nobody should use -- -- I don't have anybody could -- that -- -- -- it this bit.
They'll -- is that orgy -- only use.
Criticized him for saying that they did not get they -- only got credit you for saying it.
When all they they don't use it where they're saying nobody should use the work.
Nobody you're saying there's okay the black -- and they're saying black leaders say no it's not.
No I did not say look -- you that they did OK for the blacks to use -- I didn't have the fact that they don't he has not been hanging around on the corner.
Is that a word you show you usually use.
-- I think he's on the issue Oprah -- that it looked like that it just didn't exactly what I didn't -- today.
-- -- -- And AJ everybody zeroing in on it and -- talk about it wished I had a lot of people never talk about it.
So what -- what happens now that -- you're no longer going to be in a Republican official you're still part of the party.
It is now and they they might try to -- bad I don't know I wouldn't doubt -- bounced.
Into the party.
One -- news report that an -- this is guilty I know you got did you go to that Kamal I see another boom box.
Yeah I'm -- look -- What.
I had one person interviewing me and says I don't want my job and yeah.
Only precinct chair.
In a caddie.
A job that paid it doesn't have that.
And the lowest -- don't well there and they also cut that out of on the day -- -- actually believe him.
I want the precinct chair.
By virtue of being appreciate shares that may be a member of the -- caddie JD committee.
Which it made me a member of the dignity and -- daddy not the state.
Let everybody reportedly.
Tipped -- -- -- talked about state officials and I'm not a statistician.
What do you make of the GOP chair.
Of you're counting Henry Mitchell.
Is it let me make it clear mystery -- come -- not reflect the beliefs or feelings a -- -- Republicans notably -- any core principle.
Our party -- founded upon this mentality he said will not be supported or propagated.
Within our party.
Well I was told that that was flipped on my -- and machine there's been no personal communication between me and mr.
Mitchell -- there.
As the new year and a half ago without me I'll be doing in the event.
And when they throw me -- -- they -- big enough problem plan of organization.
That's why -- -- didn't -- -- but didn't make any difference.
Whether it's in Atlanta organization or -- that they won't yeah they'll.
Yeah I this area a year ago.
Well big -- -- with back they usually.
At a show where I had an unaffiliated run -- office.
That's -- if you don't have a candidate to support initiatives carry not one of the jitters sporting nation on my dad said that wasn't a primary Al.
That's not even -- on the -- organization I mean what what what what are we gonna we got a country now.
Where the political parties continue to support -- primary now.
You know an interest in May of all the things come out of your daily show appearance the most important newsworthy part was when you said.
Is that voter ID is a purposely take Democrats in the -- Because everybody says no voter IDs to combat fraud.
And Republicans seem to be in denial about the fact that it really is to stop Democrats.
From coming to the polls you're pretty much admitted that.
Do what happened on that.
What they cut our lives.
Actually he's gonna kick the Democrats in the book because the Democrats have been in power in North Carolina for a -- 45 years.
Little dolls and rules and regulations were passed in their favor.
Senator -- -- right here about gadget if we get early voting -- will never -- another election.
Saying they voted the same day registration -- actually they're reversed question and I'll that was cut out that you can't quite passionate and.
Well but your but the point is it voter ID hurts.
Helps Republicans and that's what it's all about.
Not the point.
Wanna -- the Democrats not -- voter ID quite a lot of great villain.
That they they voter ID having just occasionally beyond what you are where you -- that -- violation.
You're right I mean words that come.
Because it actually hurts blacks and -- -- people took it helps or hurts younger people there's no evidence very small evidence of voter fraud.
And is purely for the purpose of trying to keep.
Democrats -- people who are more likely to be affected by this away from the polls that's a fact you admitted it.
I didn't know that the comment you made the -- that became the facts and the fact yesterday -- didn't talk about.
They didn't talk that -- of the people's wealth to the polls in federal lands.
To a part time workers into the summer program here.
That were actually a ballot and voted in it's no cap value less severe they don't talk about the fact that matters Kennedy had 57.
Absentee ballots Melvin didn't welcome candy and no -- -- in voted back in demanding yet.
They don't talk about the fact that several look at it -- -- North Carolina have more registered voters that didn't population.
Didn't talk about the fact of the matter again -- was -- repeat can balance the only -- got driver flashing one cabinet should not be.
None of that stuff gets covered nobody came -- that -- nobody knows how much older brother yeah.
He's sitting here adversaries and voter fraud have shown very little evidence and when voter fraud does happen -- normally happens among absentee ballots where it happens when people register to vote but not.
At the voting Booth itself studies have shown that.
Well I have I have got to thank -- we -- the -- indicating that's not a whole lot of them.
That was -- not nobody press charges on that there was no nobody claimed that they were stopped you saw a 62 tape played over and over again and cable and nobody claimed.
That there are really -- -- painted by a that six seconds of someone marching in front of a voting -- But less industrial and I do appreciate.
You did get your story out here tonight I hope you appreciate coming on and we've -- hammy tonight thankfully into.
But you've gotten -- this year and I hope -- When I gotten in -- the plan the whole thing flannel thing.
