CLEVELAND, OH — Damn, Don, what were you thinking?!

Nope, not Donald Trump. This time, it’s Don King getting major side eye for dropping the N-word while stumping for Trump at a church in Ohio.

“If you are dancing and sliding n****r, I mean, negro.”

Yep, he made the slip during a bizarre rant up in the pulpit.

“American needs Donald Trump. We need Donald Trump, especially black people,” the controversial boxing promoter told the crowd Wednesday.

And from one king to another, he claims he even tried to school the late King of Pop.

“They told me you got to try to imitate the white man and then you can be successful. I told Michael Jackson, if you are poor, you are a poor negro. I would use the N-word. If you are rich you are a rich negro. If you are intelligent, you are an intellectual negro. If you are a dancing and sliding and gliding ni**er, I mean negro — you are a dancing and sliding and guiding negro. So dare not alienate, because you cannot assimilate.”

Uhh… what?!

Trump’s response? The most awkward grin ever!

King, who is black, said the word as he talked about black people trying to achieve success by emulating white people, but still remaining "negros." After repeatedly saying the word "negro," King slipped, "If you're a dancing and sliding and gliding n****r," King said before correcting himself and again using the word "negro."

And folks, it just goes to show you, that’s what happens when two Donalds with really bad hair walk into a church together.
