‘The President of the United States is a white supremacist’: Mychal Denzel Smith slams Trump on national TV

Published

on

President Donald Trump was called out on national TV as a “white nationalist” and “white supremacist” after the commander-in-chief’s latest diatribe against black National Football League players protesting police discrimination.

Appearing with MSNBC’s Katy Tur, New York Times bestselling author Mychal Denzel Smith called out President Trump on the anniversary weekend of the fatal “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.

“The president is tweeting about the NFL because he believes it’s a political winner for him,” Tur noted.

“Steve Bannon has gone out there and said out loud that identity politics is a winner for Donald Trump — it worked in 2016, it will work in the midterms, it will work in 2020,” Tur added.

“I disagree with that because I’d say that Donald Trump is tweeting about the NFL because he’s a racist,” suggested the author of Invisible Man, Got the Whole World Watching.

“We’ve known he’s a racist since at least 1989, when he tried to get the Central Park Five killed — executed for a crime they did not commit,” he argued. “And maybe before that, when he wouldn’t rent any of his properties to black people.”

“The President of the United States is a white nationalist, is a white supremacist,” Smith concluded. “That is who he is.”

“And so in seeing the NFL players be insubordinate and not deferential to a white supremacist notion of what country and fealty to country should be, he is calling for them to bend a knee to him, to say to them that they need to recognize their place, to not step out of line, to entertain us, to be the black bodies that entertain us,” he continued.

“These are just the held beliefs of the President of the United States,” he added.

‘One failure after another’: MSNBC’s Morning Joe busts tragic COVID-19 mistakes Trump keeps trying to deny

Published

on

MSNBC's Joe Scarborough lamented the repeated failures and missed opportunities by President Donald Trump as he faced the coronavirus outbreak.

The "Morning Joe" host criticized the president for claiming it was not the federal government's job to test Americans for the virus, and instead shifted responsibility to the states and their governors.

"This is a perfect 'the buck stops here' contrast with Donald Trump, saying, 'I am not responsible,'" Scarborough said. "What we can talk about is ventilators, the national Defense Production Act. We could talk about all the ways that Donald Trump keeps trying to pass the buck, keeps trying to say, 'I'm not responsible.'"

Watch: Dr. Fauci says ‘pre-coronavirus’ America may never return – at least not until there’s a vaccine

Published

on

Dr. Anthony Fauci told America Monday evening that the nation they knew just weeks and months ago may never be seen again, or at least not for quite some time.

Asked if a "return-to-normal" will be possible before a coronavirus vaccine is found and mass-produced, Dr. Fauci replied that may never happen – until the entire population can be protected with a vaccine.

"If 'back-to-normal' means acting like there never was a coronavirus problem, I don't think that's going to happen until we do have a situation where you can completely protect the population," Dr. Fauci said. "But when we say 'getting back-to-normal' we mean something very different from what we're going through right now – 'cause right now we are in a very intense mitigation."
