So the president of the United States is a racist. Wow. Who saw that coming? Frederick Douglass must be turning over on his couch.
This morning, Donald Trump made a two-days-too-late anti-Nazi statement that had all the credibility of an Iranian hostage video. It was a strong statement, to be sure, but there’s no way his tiny fingerprints were on it. Despite hating teleprompters, he read it off a teleprompter — because God forbid he go off script again. Chances are John Kelly had to write “Nazis = bad” on the inside of Trump’s arm so he wouldn’t screw it up.
Needless to say, if you’re just now finding out that Donald Trump is a racist, you’re a racist. If you still don’t think he’s a racist, there’s no hope left for you.
If you’d been paying attention at any point over the past, oh, 50 years, you’d already know Trump thinks that white is by far the best color in the crayon box.
“When Mexico sends it people, they're not sending their best. They're not sending you. They're sending people that have lots of problems, and they're bringing those problems with us. They're bringing drugs. They're bringing crime. They're rapists. And some, I assume, are good people.”
