[USA TODAY] … Illinois Gov. Bruce Rauner stood before a Chicago crowd Wednesday and took a large gulp of chocolate milk — a symbol of corporate diversity — and declared:

“It’s really, really good,” the Republican said, putting his arm around Tyronne Stoudemire, a Hyatt Hotels executive.

He then lifted his pint glass in the air and added, “Diversity.”

The Chicago Tribune reports the first-term governor was ending a demonstration about diversity at a Black History Month event at the Chicago Thompson Center. Stoudemire, Hyatt’s vice president of global diversity and inclusion, brought the governor on stage to perform the chocolate milk show, which Stoudemire’s done for almost two decades as a way to shed a light on the dearth of diversity in corporate America.

Rauner’s dumb social media stunt is explained in full detail here.
