GOP Kenner City Councilman – Mayoral Candidate Keith Reynaud Equates Democrats and Fried Chicken

Folks this is 2016 and you’d think the days of using the fried chicken analogy as a form of politically motivated coded racism would be long gone but they are not. (H/T) To a reader that attended the River Region Republican Women Celebrity Cook off.

Present when Reynaud made the remarks were State GOP Chairman Roger Villere along with a bevy of other State wide Elected Officials and a certain local Democrat, who witnessed the gaffe:

A reader that was present was kind enough to snap a quick picture of Reynaud adding the crowd groaned when he made the remark:

I took a quick look at Reynaud’s Campaign Facebook page to see if there was any signs he was a Trumper but its pretty well one track in becoming the next Hizzoner of Kenner (Brah). I can’t imagine his remarks will set well with the 20% plus of the Kenner electorate that is black. Stay tuned.
