Obviously, if you’re in the Trump administration, you are out of touch with reality and the idea of diversity. Who else would work for a man that refused to denounce white supremacists?
Trump, of course, is beyond out of touch. In all actuality, he’s out of this galaxy with just how insensitive he is regarding the issue of race. He proved that when he insulted a career intelligence analyst last fall.
According to sources, the analyst met with Trump to brief him on a situation involving a family being held in Pakistan. After doing so, Trump asked her where she was from. When she responded she was from New York, Trump was not satisfied and bluntly asked where her “people” came from.
That’s obviously a sign that she’s not white. Why else would Trump ask such a question? She finally responded, explaining her parents were Korean.
How did Trump respond? He leaned over and asked someone why the “pretty Korean lady” wasn’t negotiating with North Korea.
Seriously? Do we really have to go there? Obviously, we do. This is a case of someone thinking that because one person is a certain ethnicity, then they know everyone else in the world as long as they are the same ethnicity. Basically, this analyst has a Korean heritage. Therefore, she should totally be on the North Korea issue. In fact, Trump probably thought she was related to North Korea’s dictator Kim Jong-un.
Furthermore, referring to the analyst as “the pretty Korean lady” is demeaning to the person she is. What does it matter if she’s pretty or not? The job she did and how well she did it is what matters.
The reports come after Trump’s alleged remarks that countries such as Haiti and other African countries were “shithole countries.” During a bipartisan meeting on DACA and immigration issues, Trump was noted to have said the U.S. shouldn’t be allowing any more people coming from places like Haiti. He reversed the protections that Haitians had received after the 2010 earthquake.
Though Sens. Tom Cotton (R-AR) and David Perdue (R-GA) could not recall Trump making the remarks, even though it was only a day later, Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL) confirmed Trump made the comments and noted Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) had rebuked the president for his remarks. He did not give specifics on what Graham said.
Can we please finally admit Trump is racist? He’s the uncle at Sunday dinner who asks your Mexican friend if he knows Pedro who works at the 7-11 three counties over. America is seriously being run by our racist, drunk uncle. If you need proof, there is plenty of evidence that proves Trump’s racism.
Trump has consistently made racist remarks through his campaign and now tenure as U.S. president. At one point, he said that only some Mexicans were “good people.”
‘When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending the best. They’re not sending you, they’re sending people that have lots of problems and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people.’
At another point, Trump said this about Mexicans.
‘You have a bunch of bad hombres down there.’
Before he was president, he said this about Pres. Barack Obama.
‘Our great African-American President hasn’t exactly had a positive impact on the thugs who are so happily and openly destroying Baltimore.’
By saying that, he implied all “thugs” were African Americans.
Look, he’s racist. What will America do about it? We already know what most Republicans will do thanks to Cotton and Perdue. The best thing America can do right now is filter out the Republicans in the upcoming 2018 elections, so there is a chance that Democrats can stop Trump.
