Of all souls, it's Don King — he of the recent City Council street naming brouhaha, #nothappening — introducing presidential candidate Donald Trump at a Cleveland Heights Town Hall with local pastors and Fox News' Sean Hannity Wednesday morning.

Hold on to your hats. They are scheduled to discuss "Midwest Values."



King, who stomped a man to death in Cleveland before his successful career as a boxing promoter and Call & Post financier, was speaking on the plight of black people in America — genuflecting toward Trump's "what have you got to lose" sales pitch to African-American voters — and he let the N-word slip.

Trump's seated coterie found it all hilarious.
