Just three days after the first explosive package was sent by a Trump supporter to Democratic lawmakers and their allies, just two days after the president of the United States declared himself a “nationalist,” and just hours after Trump insisted that this whole “bomb” thing is a hoax, he took to Twitter to play the moral authority as if none of this has anything to do with him.

Trump can pretend that he understands the issues faced by black Americans (after all, he pretends to understand the issues faced by the white working class), but not while endorsing the Republican candidate for governor, Brian Kemp, who is actively suppressing black voters in Georgia, or tweeting fake memes alleging that the vast majority of white Americans who are murdered are victims of black criminal murderers, or referring to African countries as “sh*tholes.”

He can also pretend to want to “unify” Americans currently polarized by the political divide, but not while chanting “lock ’em up” along with his voting base, or insisting that Democrats are faking this whole “bomb” thing, or blaming the victims of domestic terrorism for reporting what he calls “fake news” about him.

Trump doesn’t get it yet, but he cannot be both a unifier and a divider. He can’t call his opponents “the enemy of the people” while saying he wants the country to come together. He also can’t stoke racist fear while pretending to be the proud representative for young black conservatives.

How long it will take his supporters to get that remains to be seen.

Twitter had a few choice words for the president. Read some of their comments below:
