A Charleston, South Carolina real estate developer and member of the city’s transportation committee is in hot water after a post calling former President Barack Obama a “Chicago street n**gger” appeared on his Facebook.

The State reported Wednesday that state legislators vowed to remove developer Bobby Miller from the committee after the post surfaced. Miller denied that he made the post, instead claiming his Facebook account had been hacked.

Sharing Obama’s new presidential portrait painted by artist Kehinde Wiley, the post used the slur against the former president and also referred to him as a “Muslim bastard.”

Responding further to the scandal, Miller, whose Facebook profile is filled with pro-Donald Trump posts, said he hasn’t gone to a committee meeting since last August and is “completely out of politics.”

State Sen. Margie Bright (D) noted on Twitter that it wasn’t the first time Miller has used slurs to reference politicians. He once reportedly called Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) a homophobic slur, and also called Rep. Jim Clyburn (D-SC) the n-word as well.

One of the key policy goals that both President Donald Trump and Democrats have repeated on the campaign trail is drug pricing reform. 66 percent of Americans take at least one prescription drug, and like most forms of health care, the cost of these drugs has risen much faster than inflation in recent decades, putting enormous pressure on politicians to come up with an answer. Indeed, until now, Republicans have attacked impeachment by claiming that it leaves Congress with no time to consider drug pricing.

This psychological analysis of Trump supporters has exposed 5 alarming traits about them

Published

on

The lightning-fast ascent and political invincibility of Donald Trump has left many experts baffled and wondering, “How did we get here?” Any accurate and sufficient answer to that question must not only focus on Trump himself, but also on his uniquely loyal supporters. Given their extreme devotion and unwavering admiration for their highly unpredictable and often inflammatory leader, some have turned to the field of psychology for scientific explanations based on precise quantitative data and established theoretical frameworks.

Although analyses and studies by psychologists and neuroscientists have provided many thought-provoking explanations for his enduring support, the accounts of different experts often vary greatly, sometimes overlapping and other times conflicting. However insightful these critiques may be, it is apparent that more research and examination is needed to hone in on the exact psychological and social factors underlying this peculiar human behavior.
