Trump Snaps & Launches Wildly Racist Pre-Debate Meltdown

President Donald Trump is keeping up the brisk pace of his angry complaining as Election Day approaches. This Thursday, he melted down on Twitter, whining about a slew of targets, from CBS journalist Lesley Stahl to former President Barack Obama to a housing regulation that he claims would have brought “projects and crime” to “Suburbia.”

In reality, the housing regulation that the president is referring to directed local communities to find ways to eradicate segregation from their midst. Trump’s administration has done away with the regulation, and the president has belligerently claimed that it would have meant that low-income housing — which is often associated with marginalized communities like low-income black Americans — would have “invaded” the suburbs. It’s thinly veiled race-baiting. He’s replacing explicitly identified racial identities with other descriptors — like the “projects” vs. “Suburbia” — and behaving as if a regulation working towards the end of segregation is a bad thing.

Trump angrily tweeted the following:

‘Finally! Suburban women are flocking over to us. They realize that I am saving the Suburbs – the American Dream! I terminated the Regulation that would bring projects and crime to Suburbia. Not on my watch! Biden will bring the Regulation back, but bigger and worse.’

It’s worth noting that it’s entirely unclear what even sparked this rant. “Finally”? Finally what? He acts like there was some poll showing that 75 percent of so-called “suburban women” like Trump now, but it’s unclear what he’s even talking about.

Trump also complained about a recent campaign stop that Barack Obama made for Joe Biden in Pennsylvania. Trump claimed that Obama had waited waited until “long after primaries were over” before endorsing Biden, but this claim is false. Obama’s endorsement for Biden emerged within about a week after Biden’s last challenger (Bernie Sanders) dropped out.

Check out other angry posts from the president below. He and his allies have been desperately pushing a New York Post story that claims to reveal corruption-laced contents from Hunter Biden’s laptop, but it’s still unclear if there’s actually any tangible evidence that unequivocally confirms the origin of the material. Meanwhile, Trump has also been complaining to high heaven about a recent interview that journalist Lesley Stahl did with him for 60 Minutes. Trump walked out on the interview before its natural end, and he complained that the interview was “terrible Electoral Intrusion,” as if he imagines that there’s some kind of media conspiracy to undermine his campaign via… asking him questions. It’s so much nonsense.
