Since the moment he first announced he was running for president, Donald Trump has proven that he’s a blatant and unapologetic racist. He attacks Hispanics, African-Americans, Asians, and anyone else whose skin is a different shade than his.
The most recent example of Trump’s hate and bias can be found in comments made by former White House aide Omarosa Manigault Newman, who maintains that she has heard the president use the N-word on several occasions and even hinted there may be a recording of Trump doing so.
But to hear former Scott Jennings, a former special assistant to President George W. Bush tell it, Trump is an “equal opportunity” offender of anyone he disagrees with. Jennings even said on CNN Wednesday morning that he didn’t think Trump is a racist.
Those comments angered former GOP strategist Ana Navarro, who told Jennings:
“I frankly don’t know where you have been for the last three years. I don’t know where you have been for the last 40 years!”
Navarro then proceeded to tick off some of the many instances of Trump’s racist rhetoric:
“This guy’s racist history and racist past began with housing discrimination in New York in the ’60s. Let’s not forget the Central Park Five. Let’s not forget the attacks on Frederica Wilson, Maxine Waters, and John Lewis, who is a quasi-deity when it comes to civil rights. Let’s not forget the birther conspiracy, questioning Barack Obama’s authenticity and legitimacy as a president.”
And Navarro was just getting warmed up, adding:
“Let’s not forget the s-hole countries. Let’s not forget the second-class treatment of Puerto Ricans. Let’s not forget the attacks on Don Lemon and LeBron James for calling them dumb… I mean, come on! Wake up and smell the racism, really it isn’t that hard!”
Donald Trump has been a stone cold racist since he was a young man, and it appears he learned to hate at an early age. His father, Fred, was arrested while attending a Ku Klux Klan (KKK) rally which turned into a riot in 1927, and nothing Donald has done in the years since his birth suggests that he believes in equality. So to those who try and defend Trump, keep in mind that when you do so, it tells us all we need to know about you, too.
