An older white man told Fox News on Thursday that President Barack Obama was to blame for racism in America because “he himself is a racist.”
Two days after the 2016 election, Fox News host Abby Huntsman traveled to a diner full of white people in Ft. Myers, Florida to talk about Donald Trump’s victory.
A man named Dan opined to Huntsman that protests against Trump were “typical of what’s going on in our colleges today.”
“It starts in the elementary schools where they’re just brainwashing kids,” Dan insisted. “Our history is really not our history, but they’re rewriting history.”
“What’s your message to them, people out protesting right now?” Huntsman asked.
“Grow up,” Dan shrugged. “It’s disrespect for the law, disrespect for authority.”
According to Dan, “things started going downhill” when President Obama won in 2008.
“Because he — he was himself a racist,” the Florida man declared. “And, I mean, that’s harsh but he was. I mean, he defended every black person that caused a crime.”
“I don’t know that Obama is a racist,” Huntsman advised politely.
“Well, I’m saying his policies are racist,” Dan said.
“Yeah,” Huntsman replied dubiously as she turned to the next diner.

Japan wants to dump Fukushima radioactive water into ocean
Japan's top government spokesman slapped down the environment minister on Tuesday after he said there was "no other option" but to release radioactive water from the crippled Fukushima nuclear power plant into the ocean.
"It is not true that we have decided on the disposal method," Chief Cabinet Minister Yoshihide Suga told reporters after Environment Minister Yoshiaki Harada's comments earlier in the day.
The operator, Tokyo Electric Power Co. (TEPCO), is storing more than one million tonnes of contaminated water in tanks at the site of Fukushima Daiichi Plant that was wrecked by the 2011 earthquake, tsunami and nuclear meltdown.
Here’s one big reason why Trump is having a white-hot meltdown over the Fed not dropping interest rates
President Donald Trump has a personal conflict-of-interest that may be impacting his decisions in his public feud with Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell.
"President Trump stands to save millions of dollars annually in interest on outstanding loans on his hotels and resorts if the Federal Reserve lowers rates as he has been demanding, according to public filings and financial experts," The Washington Post reported Saturday.
Trump approves of North Korea missile tests: ‘I have no problem’ because they’re just ‘short-range missiles’
On Thursday, in conversation with reporters, President Donald Trump said that he had 'no problem' with North Korea's new round of missile tests.
"Short-range missiles, we never made an agreement on that," said Trump. "I have no problem, we'll see what happens, but these are short-range missiles. They're very standard."
The thought that short-range missiles would still be capable of hitting our allies in the region, like South Korea and Japan, does not seem to have occurred to him.
