Donald Trump claims “I’m the least racist person there is anywhere in the world.” Seriously?

President Trump on Tuesday said he has no regrets over his attacks on House Oversight and Reform Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) and the city of Baltimore, which have renewed accusations of racism against the president.

During his first session with reporters since launching the attacks, Trump said people in “corrupt” Baltimore are “living in hell” and insisted his comments have nothing to do with race.

“I’m the least racist person there is anywhere in the world,” Trump told reporters at the White House before traveling to Jamestown, Va.

The president again lashed out at the Rev. Al Sharpton, who has emerged as a vocal critic of his attacks against minority lawmakers, calling him a “racist.”

“No, I think I’m helping myself because I’m pointing out the tremendous corruption that’s taken place in Baltimore and other Democratic run cities,” the president said when asked if he could hurt himself politically by targeting Cummings.

Without citing specifics, Trump said that he has “received more phone calls” than on any other issue previously from Baltimore residents who have expressed gratitude for his comments.

“They’re largely African-American…They really appreciate what I’m doing and they’ve let me know it,” the president said.

I will gladly bet my house that Trump could not produce even a half dozen legitimate phone calls from black Baltimore residents expressing anything like gratitiude for his attacks on their city. 

Oh I am positive that he is getting calls but defining them as positive would be a huge stretch of the imagination. 

Trump told a number of outrageous lies during this exchange with the press.

Here is CNN knocking them down one at a time. 

Fact checking Donald Trump is exhausting but fortunately, there are still people willing to take on that job.

      ” by issuing a $16 billion bailout, paying farmers for the work they lost due to the tariffs — meaning that he is effectively borrowing money from China to pay farmers not to sell their goods to China.” “Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue has announced that unlike the previous rounds, which paid farmers by the bushel or bale of produce, farmers will now be paid by the acre — meaning that small farms will automatically get less than large farms even if they are more productive or lost more money.”

      But Trump’s policy is even more disastrous than it looks on paper, according to a new report from the Environmental Working Group.

      “California Governor Ronald Reagan phoned President Richard Nixon at the White House and vented his frustration at the delegates who had sided against the United States. “Last night, I tell you, to watch that thing on television as I did,” Reagan said. “Yeah,” Nixon interjected. Reagan forged ahead with his complaint: “To see those, those monkeys from those African countries—damn them, they’re still uncomfortable wearing shoes!” Nixon gave a huge laugh.”

      “Nixon never changed his mind about the supposed inherent inferiority of Africans. At the end of October 1971, he discussed the UN vote with his best friend, Bebe Rebozo. Bebe delighted Nixon by echoing Reagan: “That reaction on television was, it proves how they ought to be still hanging from the trees by their tails.” Nixon laughed.”

      “Total — total lie,” she declared. “Making himself part of the story, a very important story and undermining the fact that three people died, just like he is undermining what happened in 9/11 by exploiting it.”

      “I’ve already spoken about that on Fox News last night,” said Patton, who had no significant experience in housing prior to being appointed by Trump and primarily worked as an event planner. Her boss, Ben Carson, will reportedly visit Baltimore in the coming days “I oversee New York and New Jersey.”

      “Okay, but I’m asking, is that the Trump administration’s responsibility to make sure that these buildings are not vermin-infested?” ““No, it’s actually run by the mayor,” said Patton, implicitly contradicting Trump’s claim that Cummings was to blame for the state of Baltimore.”

      “However, Koeltl, an appointee of President Bill Clinton, said federal law shielded Russia from being sued in U.S. federal courts. Under the Foreign Sovereign Immunities Act, such remedies can only be pursued through state actions, including sanctions imposed by the president or Congress.”

      “The Judge said the DNC case was ‘entirely divorced’ from the facts, yet another total and complete vindication and exoneration from the Russian, WikiLeaks and every other form of hoax perpetrated by the DNC, radical Democrats and others,” Trump claimed, despite having never been vindicated or exonerated.”

    I’m black, and I don’t believe for a millisecond that a whole lot of black citizens have called Trump to congratulate him on his attacks on Maryland and Rep. Elijah Cummings. Black Americans are born with a sort of well-honed BS detector, especially those of us in the over-50 category. If he has heard from any black persons, you’d best believe it’s was someone like Cubic Zirconia and Burlap, aka ”Diamond and Silk,” Bill Owens, Darrell Scott, Larry Elder, and other black suck ups. We Black Americans have a long history of recognizing and dealing with other black folks who will sellout their grandmother to anyone for a buck. We know exactly how to handle these folks. They talk, we listen, and then we ignore the hell out of them because we know their only loyalties are in money and power. We also know that they’ll align themselves with anyone who can advance their efforts in these pursuits.

    The Latter Days of a Better Nation, Part VI

    Excerpt>
    “We, Citizen, must know the truth, whatever that truth may be.

    A truth that cannot be redacted or obstructed.

    And if you’re afraid of that, if you are afraid of where the truth might take you, if your loyalty is to a would be king and not the nation, then you are complicit. If you’re outraged at my words instead of at the thought of what that process might find, if you don’t want to know the truth, well, then you’re the problem.

    You. Are. The. Problem.

    If you want a better nation, then you have to be a better citizen.”

    Lawmaker interrupts Trump speech
    During a ceremony in Jamestown, marking 400 years since the first legislative assembly, a Democratic Virginia state lawmaker interrupted President Trump, declaring “you can’t send us back.”
    It comes after the president targeted Rep. Elijah Cummings, and four congresswomen of color. Errol Barnett reports.

    This orange asswipe also said that nobody respects women more than he does which is a complete joke. If the Republicans won’t stand up to this clown I wish he would just drop dead of a heart attack while he’s yammering to the yokels at one of his Nuremberg rallies.

    Personally, I don’t care if trump is a racist and white supremacist, he should OWN IT instead of LYING about it. That way people know exactly what they are getting when they vote for him

    He is a lying hypocrite, if he thinks there is nothing wrong with being a racist then why does he keep trying to convince everyone he isn’t.

    He is totally unqualified to be president and being a racist is the least of it, HE IS MENTALLY ILL a much bigger problem as far as I am concerned. !!!!

    “Does anyone in your country even know where Iran is on the map?” he asked. “Or do they get it mixed up with Iraq? I bet they have no idea they’re dealing with a country with 7,000 years of incredible political and cultural history that looks at the United States, and especially Donald Trump, as if you’re all a bunch of monkeys.”

    ” what’s really going on behind the confusing theatrics of the past two months?”
    “In documents leaked to the Mail on Sunday, British Ambassador Kim Darroch accused Trump of abandoning the Iranian nuclear deal in May 2018 just to “spite” Obama.” “rump Hates Anything Obama”

    ““Trump claims he does not want a war, (but) in fact really does,” read an editorial published Saturday in the English-language Tehran Times in which the writer called Trump “cruel and stupid.””In fact, one can imagine that Trump does not know what he wants exactly except submission”

    “Imagine if one of the naval clashes in the gulf pushes Trump to bomb Iran, the way he almost did in June.

    “The response will be ferocious,” Boroujerdi said. “They can tell Hezbollah to wage war on Jerusalem and Tel Aviv. They can shoot their missiles at nearby U.S. military bases and kill American soldiers. They can fire on Dubai and bring those skyscrapers down and with it all that foreign capital.”

    “CNN’s Don Lemon, the dumbest man on television, insinuated last night while asking a debate ‘question’ that I was a racist, when in fact I am ‘the least racist person in the world,’” Trump wrote. “Perhaps someone should explain to Don that he is supposed to be neutral, unbiased & fair, or is he too dumb (stupid} to understand that. No wonder CNN’s ratings (MSNBC’s also) have gone down the tubes – and will stay there until they bring credibility back to the newsroom. Don’t hold your breath!”

    The Republican Party has been racist sice Reagan was Gov of CA. Well, way before, but we now have documentation on St Ronnie and IAMNOTACROOK Nixon.

    1971.

    The GOP should have a banner at their Charlotte convention. “Celebrating 48 years of Racism.”
