This is the story of three men of note and how their lives intersected over the tragic death of a 32-year-old mother who was killed in a Chicago crossfire this weekend.

The woman, Nykea Aldridge, who was pushing a baby carriage when she was shot to death, happened to be NBA player Dwyane Wade’s cousin.

Wade spoke out passionately after his cousin’s tragic demise, but was joined by another in the spotlight who had commentary as well.

Republican candidate Donald Trump, who never seems to get off social media, tweeted the following in response to Aldridge’s death:

“Dwayne Wade’s cousin was just shot and killed walking her baby in Chicago. Just what I have been saying. African-Americans will VOTE TRUMP!”

The Tweet was viewed by many as being exploitative and in poor taste. A young woman and mother of four has just randomly lost her life in front of her children and the candidate somehow ties it to African-Americans voting for him. (The initial tweet was taken down and reposted after Trump misspelled Wade’s first name).

Later that afternoon, Trump decided to add condolences to the family. Thanks, Donald.

But wait—there’s more. Actor Don Cheadle was so incensed by Trump’s insensitivity that he jumped in the mix and skewered him in a series of tweets that may lead some to believe that he really may be Marty Kaan, the silver-tongued smart *** on his Showtime series, House of Lies.

Cheadle unleashed a slew of raw yet sometimes highbrow language to set the Republican candidate low.

On point and on time!

Donald John Trump didn't kill this lady, those two murderer guys did & when Trayvon Martin got shot for attacking George Zimmerman didn't Obama say on live TV that Trayvon could've been his boy? I think I read that somewhere. Same situation same type of comment from two men, one White & one black so which one is right & which one is wrong or are they both right or both wrong? Can't have it both ways.
trump tried to use her death for political advantage. you cannot see that ?
zimmerman attacked martin not the other way around. you cannot see that ?

it appears as though you cannot see straight.
