Racist tweets reveal chilling side of POTUS

To critics of this blog who have challenged my assertions — along with those of others — that Donald Trump has posted “racist” tweets regarding four members of Congress, I want to respond with a question.

Would the president ever have dared to say such a thing had the congresswomen been of, say, western European heritage?

You know the answer. He would not have said such a thing. 

The four Democratic members of Congress, in case you’ve been hiding in a cave, are: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Ayanna Pressley and Rashida Tlaib.

They are in order, of Puerto Rican, Somali, African-American and Palestinian descent. Three of them were born in the United States; Rep. Omar was born in Somalia, but came here when she was 12 years of age.

They’re all U.S. citizens. They all are duly elected members of the House. They all are women of color.

Donald Trump’s tweets — that said they should return to their countries of origin — are soaked in racism. Do they confirm that Donald Trump is a racist? Well, you know the saying about whether the shoe fits … correct?

The president has just made history once again by dragging his high office into the gutter of racism. Yes, Donald Trump’s Twitter rants are racist to the core!

One thought on “Racist tweets reveal chilling side of POTUS”

  1. I have not been a fan of Trump’s tweets. They were fun during the election, but after that, I expected him to become Presidential. I was disappointed in that respect (and Trump’s …. lack of respect.)

    He probably will never become “Presidential”

    He has in many cases overstepped his bounds with tweets.

    This is not to say, the Democrat’s have also not overstepped their lines.

    We have the Democrats who are to exercise control over the Republicans, and the Republican’s to exercise control over the Democrats to prevent crossing over the lines of good government. How’s this working for you?

    Both parties have overlooked the fact that they are working for the people who elected them, the country as a whole. Instead they spend more time making snipes at one another than they do running the country.

    Then there is the news media. They too have lost sight of their purpose. The press is there to inform the people of what Is going on. Unfortunately the National Enquirer may be the better newspaper. They have almost always printed “Fake News” stories and make no pretense that the stories are factual.

    The mainstream news media today (newspapers, television and radio) who are supposed to bring the facts to the people and let the people decide what’s what, seem to have learned their reporting skills from the Enquirer. They also report “Fake News” and pass it off as factual.

    I would like the reporters to go back to the old rule, print the “Who”, “What” “Where” “When ” and “Why” and let the reader decide. Save the editorials for the editorial page and leave them off the front page.
