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.
