The Armstrong Williams Show
usually consists of Williams and other male and female African-American conservative commentators discussing the political issues of the day. Williams being the host asks questions, brings up topics and poses ideas for the other commentators to discuss and answer. The show also includes some left-wing commentators to give the point of view from the other side of the political spectrum. Williams on his radio show endorsed Ben Carson to be the Republican nominee for the 2016 presidential race. Armstrong’s support of Dr Carlson came because he is an African-American and liked Carlson’s stance on the major political issues in 2015 and 2016.
Williams supported Carson to be nominee for president until the Ben Carson Presidential Campaign was suspended in early March 2016. After the suspension of the campaign, Dr Carson then endorsed current United States President Donald Trump to be the Republican nominee. Ben was then employed as an advisor to Donald Trump for his campaign, which was successful. Armstrong Williams didn’t fully endorse Donald Trump for President, however he much preferred him over the favorite Hillary Clinton. During the 2016 election the commentators that were on the Armstrong Williams Show were mostly in support of Donald Trump and were critical of Hillary Clinton.
