President Donald Trump extended his attacks on the four progressive Democratic Congresswomen Tuesday morning, tweeting several sets of attacks against them, culminating with tweets that set the Internet on fire.
“Those Tweets were NOT Racist,” the President said of his racist tweets. “I don’t have a Racist bone in my body!” he added, which drew immediate and intense reaction.
Those Tweets were NOT Racist. I don’t have a Racist bone in my body! The so-called vote to be taken is a Democrat con game. Republicans should not show “weakness” and fall into their trap. This should be a vote on the filthy language, statements and lies told by the Democrat…..

Motherfucker, you are racist. Not just your bones. Your crepey orange skin, your piss-on-shredded-wheat hair, your cartilage, marrow, your triglyceride-sludged blood, every fleck of effluvia that you shed is racist as hell. Every nucleotide of you is RACIST.
You. Are. Racist. https://t.co/mcAz2sh3hr

You banned Muslims. You’re blocking Latinos seeking asylum. You said Nazi in C’ville were good people. You wanted to kill black central park 5 after shown to be innocent and you say 4 citizens of color in Congress should go back to where they came from.
You, sir, are a racist. https://t.co/Du3pBxB13q

Yet more evidence that impeachment proceedings would be the wisest political move for Democrats: Trump cannot handle sustained criticism and would lose his fucking mind. It would not be a good look for him at all.
