Several officials said that Trump is not a disciplined enough thinker to grasp the full dimensions of the white nationalist agenda, let alone embrace it.

Others pointed out that they have observed him making far more offensive comments about women, insisting that his scorn is all-encompassing and therefore shouldn't be construed as racist.

"This is a guy who abuses people in his cabinet, abuses four-star generals, abuses people who gave their life for this country, abuses civil servants," the first former senior White House official said. "It's not like he doesn't abuse people that are White as well."

I feel like one or two of us may have gotten gaslit through this adminstration. Or have we?

A wife beater can still be a racist.

Just because you are an asshole to everyone doesnt mean you can't be racist as well.

Also, isn't this saying he is to stupid to be racist? Cause that is not a comforting thought.

Their argument literally consists of two things:

1. Trump is too stupid to be a racist.
2. Trump is an asshole to everyone.

Somehow that's supposed to help his case?

Misanthropy is an umbrella term that can include racism and misogyny.

Trump's racism and sexism fit his misanthropic world view.

If you're not a Trump, you're a toy for Trump to destroy and discard.

He's so racist that it's a matter of court record.

Far too dumb and mercurial to intentionally be racist.

It's almost like the "liberal" media is useless and helped elect him and is currently helping him escape responsibility for the 200,000+ dead people who are dead because of him.

This morning Gayle King came THIS close to saying that he lies, but obviously didn't use the word "lie." Because apparently that's going too far.

What he's done so far, so terrible, apparently, that nobody who actually dispenses news dares to say that out loud. Or write it in a "major" publication.

Mustn't be rude when referring to the crime that is currently taking place in front of everyone. They're not hiding it. As per usual with Republicans. They do it out in the open and then dare people to name it accurately.

And the limp "liberal" media refuses to do it. That's why we have President Useless Asshole today. His contempt for them is well-earned, just not for the reasons he thinks.

Well, Lincoln tried to get black leaders to agree to resettlement programs to South America as late as 1862 if I remember correctly, soooooo yeah.  Teach real history. Now.

He can't be too dumb to be racist, racism by default is idiotic.

Being a misogynist doesn't mean you can't also be racist. In fact often that Venn diagram has a wide overlap, because they both have an audience of complete morons.

And him being an asshole to white people doesn't mean he isn't racist. Not all assholes are racist, though all racists are assholes. He's just the latter.

"Allegations" is a word that only applies to second-hand information.  If there is first-hand / primary-sourced information from the subject of the statement itself, it's not an allegation, it's simply a fact.

Trump has literally made multiple explicitly racist speeches this week, people describing him as racist aren't "alleging" anything, they're "reacting to his racism".  The racism itself is not in dispute.

I just assume that any paper that prints this "IS the sky blue?? We just don't know!" bullshiat is benefiting directly from Trump in one way or another. It was obvious back in 2016.

You can be a racist asshole, you can be a sexist asshole, you can be an asshole to everybody. You can be all of those things at once. None of them is an excuse for being an asshole, all of them say "Christ what an asshole!".
Bette Midler hit the nail on the head when Trump said he felt like the Lone Ranger when he was wearing his face mask. "The Lone Ranger's mask had two eyeholes in it, Trump's mask only has one asshole in it."

Media: "Trump is a big meanie-head, who says questionable things."

Me: "Yeah, thanks for the farking tip, news media. The rest of us have been watching this dog eat grass for the last 30 YEARS." Trump personal assholish-ness is a well known fact and is the LEAST of his problems. It's what he's doing with his power that everyone is riled up about.

Sorry, Jim, but if the "liberal" media refuses to name it as "racist," then it's not, per the many people who watch the "news" and the ones who hear about it second-hand.

That's how this shiat works. He doesn't say racist things. He "stokes racial tension." He doesn't do racist things. His policies are "controversial." etc.

I fail to see how being duller than a water balloon or having the attention span of a drug addled fruit fly contraindicates being a racist underwear skidmark.

There's a certain kind of dumb white person who explicitly gravitates toward racism precisely because he may not be able to pretend he isn't dumber than every black man he passes on the street, but he can still fantasize his skin color makes him better.
 
2020-09-23 5:08:03 PM  
Trump's an asshole to everyone because he's an asshole. This much is true. He's also an asshole to minorities, but when he does it, he's not thinking "this is because I'm an asshole", he's thinking "this is because they're black/asian/etc". That makes him racist.

It's the old "I'm not racist because I hate everyone!" defense.
 
2020-09-23 5:27:43 PM  
It is bitterly amusing that their DEFENSE of his obvious racism is that he's supposedly said even worse shiat about and to women.

Because being a sexist asshole is so common and accepted as to be the norm in America in 2020.

I'd like to disagree, but I can't. They're right.

And they lead of with him being too stupid to be a white nationalist, as though understanding that is a sign of intelligence.

/guess not

C'mon now, everybody knows he's a fascist sack of shiat, including the main fascist cesspool of American fascist. If you still think it's just "allegations" you're either denser than a neutron star or a fascist sack of shiat, and since i'm sitting here typing and not stripped into individual atoms then that kinda narrows it down.

ftfa: Omarosa Manigault Newman, one of the few Black women to have worked at the White House, said in her 2018 memoir that she was enlisted by White House aides to track down a rumored recording from "The Apprentice" - the reality show on which she was a contestant - in which Trump allegedly used the n-word. A former official said that others involved in the effort included Trump adviser Hope Hicks and former White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders.
The tape, if it exists, was never recovered. But Manigault Newman, who was forced out after clashing with other White House staff, portrayed the effort to secure the tape as evidence that aides saw Trump capable of such conduct. In the book, she described Trump as "a racist, misogynist and bigot."

Trump is trying to compare himself to Lincoln. Lincoln, and many other abolitionists, were proponents of resettlement, but black leaders were not having it, and who can blame them? Trump and his ilk are trying their best to kick out the brown people.  That was my point. Sorry it went over your heads, guys.
 
2020-09-23 8:06:49 PM  
Major media outlets don't want to call Trump "a racist" because in doing so, they're obliquely saying the millions of racist snapperheads who adore him are also "racists."

Oddly enough, racists don't actually like being called "racists." It hurts their feelings so they stop consuming the media that says so.

That costs the media outlets money. So they won't do it.

Also, sky is blue, water is wet, masks work, wash your hands, try the veal.
