President Donald Trump was wildly criticized following recent violence in Charlottesville for saying both sides of clashing demonstrators shared blame, and both contained some “good people.” And after his media-bashing rally in Phoenix Tuesday night, CNN doubled down on the claims. We followed him closely during the campaign and in the White House. He never said anything racist and has made public statements, recently and going back many years, condemning racism, white supremacist groups and the like. He speaks regularly about uniting America and viewing all of its people as equals, while his platform includes rebuilding inner cities and the like.
Yet the left, and particularly the national media, assume as a given that he is racist and courts white supremacists, despite all the contrary evidence. In the face of this chorus, how can we really know if he is a racist?
Here are the Top Ten Ways to know that Trump is racist based on recent statements from public figures on the left:
10 For the love of God, he’s a WHITE man (Maxine Waters)
9 All billionaire businessmen exploit minorities (Bernie Sanders)
8 He ran on law & order, and we all know who that targets (Al Sharpton)
7 The president wants to stop people from illegally sneaking across the southern border; c’mon (Nancy Pelosi)
6 He colluded with Russia to defeat Clinton; if he’s that unfair, he’s got to be racially unfair (Adam Schiff)
5 Why else would I want him assassinated? (Missouri Sen. Maria Chapelle-Nadal)
4 He’s a Republican president, so I’ve got to say anything to take him down (Chuck Schumer)
3 No person of color has hair like Trump’s, so it must be a fashion statement against minorities (Stephen Colbert)
