I’m sorry, what?

Housing Secretary Ben Carson said because non-white workers at President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort “love him,” that proves the president is not a racist.
“He’s a man who is deeply driven by a sense of kindness and compassion,” Carson said. “You know, talking to the people who drive the cars and park the cars at Mar-a-Lago, they love him — the people who wash the dishes — because he’s kind and compassionate.”
Carson made the remarks while introducing Trump on Friday at the Opportunity Now Summit in North Carolina. The president was there to speak about a tax incentives program meant to spur investments in underserved areas, which were designated Opportunity Zones by the 2017 tax cut bill.
Carson continued his praise of the president, touting Trump’s inclusiveness: “When he bought Mar-a-Lago, he was the one who fought for Jews and blacks to be included in the clubs that were trying to exclude them,” Carson said.
The secretary added, “You know, people say he’s a racist, he is not a racist.”
Actually Trump has a long history of racist remarks and discriminatory actions.
Hell, his own father was in the KKK.
As for his workers loving him I am fairly sure that Sally Hemings grew fond of Thomas Jefferson as well, but that did not mean he did not keep her as a slave and rape her repeatedly.
Ben Carson is a walking talking embarrassment.
