Trump willing to call out ‘racists’ on Twitter — as long as they’re black people or liberals

Published

on

He may have finally named white supremacists as the instigators of violence in Charlottesville, but on Twitter, President Donald Trump is far more likely to blame racism on black people.

According to a Washington Post report, Trump accuses black people of racism four times as much as he does white people.

The report is based on findings from the Trump Twitter Archive, a website cataloging the president’s tweets. Based on this archive, Trump used the terms “racist” or “racism” at least 56 times — and two-thirds of the people he levied the accusations against were black.

Additionally, most of those accusations have been made against just two people — former MSNBC host Touré, who Trump had a Twitter beef with, and HBO Real Sports host Bryant Gumbel, who once criticized Trump’s golf courses.

Along with Touré and Gumbel, Trump also called former President Barack Obama and talk show host Tavis Smiley racists.

Three of the seven tweets Trump has posted accusing white people of being racists were directed at well-known liberals — Hillary Clinton, Elizabeth Warren and David Letterman.

Though 18 of Trump’s tweets mentioning racists or racism weren’t directed at any specific individual, half of them were in defense of himself against accusations of racism, WaPo found.

Published

on

President Donald Trump was the target of a Democratic press conference with four Congresswomen of color who were calling him out for racist tweets telling them to go back to their countries.

The women attacked every policy that Trump seems to be losing on. Trump seemed to try and pivot to another issue entirely, blaming former President Barack Obama for building the cages that he's putting children in after he takes them from their parents.

The Obama Administration built the Cages, not the Trump Administration! DEMOCRATS MUST GIVE US THE VOTES TO CHANGE BAD IMMIGRATION LAWS.

Trump goes off on ‘socialist, communist’ rant saying Democrats are ‘pro Al-Qaeda’

Published

on

President Donald Trump took his racist comments even further Monday afternoon, saying that Democrats are now pro-terrorism.

"We will never be a Socialist or Communist Country. IF YOU ARE NOT HAPPY HERE, YOU CAN LEAVE!" Trump ranted. "It is your choice, and your choice alone. This is about love for America. Certain people HATE our Country. They are anti-Israel, pro Al-Qaeda, and comment on the 9/11 attack, “some people did something.” Radical Left Democrats want Open Borders, which means drugs, crime, human trafficking, and much more. Detention facilities are not Concentration Camps! America has never been stronger than it is now – rebuilt Military, highest Stock Market EVER, lowest unemployment and more people working than ever before. Keep America Great!"

‘Bond is dead’: White dudes flip out over casting of a black woman as next Agent 007

Published

on

On Monday, the Daily Beast reported that the new 007 -- the special agent in the James Bond series -- will be portrayed by the black actress Lashana Lynch.

The announcement set off predictably racist and sexist reactions.

Perhaps the most prominent right-winger to voice his displeasure was Ben Shapiro, who complained that it didn't make sense for Bond to be a woman because of the character's signature seduction moves.

"Bond is about the guns and the girls," Shapiro said, noting that a woman in a seductive role was not realistic.
