I know that this dude in the White House has made many many racist comments…..but when he uses terms like “infested” it smacks of Germany in the 1930s…….
Once again Trump has let his bigotry and racism come to the forefront…..
President Trump on Saturday denigrated a majority-black district represented by a congressional nemesis as a “disgusting, rat and rodent infested mess,” broadening a campaign against prominent critics of his administration that has exacerbated racial tensions, the AP reports. Trump lashed out in tweets against Rep. Elijah Cummings, the powerful House Oversight Committee chairman, claiming his Baltimore-area district is “considered the worst run and most dangerous anywhere in the United States.” It was the president’s latest assault on a prominent lawmaker, and the people he represents, two weeks after he sparked nationwide controversy with racist tweets directed at four congresswomen of color.
His comments against Cummings, who leads multiple investigations of the president’s governmental dealings, drew swift condemnation from Democrats, including would-be presidential rivals. Trump called Cummings a “brutal bully” after his public tongue-lashing of top Homeland Security officials over conditions for migrants detained along the southern border. “As proven last week during a Congressional tour, the Border is clean, efficient & well run, just very crowded,” Trump tweeted. “Cumming District is a disgusting, rat and rodent infested mess. If he spent more time in Baltimore, maybe he could help clean up this very dangerous & filthy place.” Cummings replied directly to Trump on Twitter, saying, “Mr. President, I go home to my district daily … It is my constitutional duty to conduct oversight of the Executive Branch. But, it is my moral duty to fight for my constituents.”
This rhetoric has allowed the worthless lumps of manure that are the racists get more exposure than they deserve…..
Even the racism Trump embraces makes it into the world of retail sales……
Shoppers at a New Jersey store will no longer find black dolls with eye-popping instructions waiting on the shelves, NJ.com reports. The One Dollar Zone in Bayonne pulled the “Feel Better Doll” Monday after Assembleywoman Angela McKnight visited to confirm what she’d seen on social media. A description on the product—which is made from black fabric with multi-colored yarn hair, white smile, and white eyes—tells buyers to “find a wall to slam the doll.” McKnight didn’t hold back: “This doll is offensive and disturbing on so many levels,” she says. “It is clearly made in an inappropriate representation of a black person and instructs people to ‘slam’ and ‘whack’ her. Racism has no place in the world and I will not tolerate it, especially not in this district.”
A message written on the dolls tells buyers that “Whenever things don’t go well / and you want to hit the wall and yell … Just grab it firmly by the legs and find a / wall to small the doll, and as you wack / the ‘feel good doll’ do not forget to yell / I FEEL GOOD, I FEEL GOOD.” One Dollar Zone President Ricky Shah expressed remorse for selling the product and says it arrived with a big shipment of merchandise, largely with “I Love NY” labels, the AP reports. “This somehow slipped through the cracks,” he says. Reporters couldn’t reach the doll’s manufacturer, the Harvey Hutter Co., which is located in Croton-on-Hudson, about 30 miles north of New York City. A supplier says the company has gone out of business
This is NO way for a country to behave……it is definitely NO way for the leader of the so-called “Free World” to behave……but then I expect this from a small petty man that is prone to insults and bullying.
Not to be outdone His Majesty Trump took to Twitter again…this time calling Cummings a racist…..seriously……
Upping a feud with an influential black lawmaker, President Trump on Sunday assailed Rep. Elijah Cummings as a “racist” over the “rodent-infested mess” in his district while White House aides sought to downplay his comments as frustration over Democrats’ unrelenting investigations, the AP reports. In a series of tweets, Trump insisted that his comments Saturday referring to Cummings’ majority-black district as a disgusting mess where “no human being would want to live” were not racist. On the contrary, Trump argued, “if racist Elijah Cummings would focus more of his energy on helping the good people of his district, and Baltimore itself, perhaps progress could be made in fixing the mess that he has helped to create over many years of incompetent leadership.” Trump added, “His radical ‘oversight’ is a joke!”
His comments capped a weekend of attacks on Cummings, the latest rhetorical shots against non-white lawmakers since Trump posted racist tweets directed at four Democratic congresswomen of color two weeks ago. Acting chief of staff Mick Mulvaney insisted in two national television interviews Sunday that Trump was not making racist comments. Mulvaney said Trump’s words were exaggerated for effect—”Does the president speak hyperbolically? Absolutely”—and meant to draw attention to Democratic-backed investigations of the Republican president and his team in Washington. “Instead of helping people back home, they’re focusing on scandal in Washington, DC, which is the exact opposite of what they said they would do when they ran for election in 2018,” Mulvaney said.
Mulvaney then stated that Trump was just fact checking Cummings….really! That would be a first.
Trump lies and then has toadies like Mulvaney to add more manure to the pile left by His Majesty.
Trump has spoken! Thus spake the Clown Prince Of Idiocracy…
