Don Lemon interviews a panel of 3 black Republicans relative to the Chumph’s racism. A Lawn Jockey interrupts with her “feelings”.
The Chumph doesn’t have a clue that in supporting the KKK he has moved into non-negotiable territory. Black Republicans can swallow the sort of “wink-wink nod-nod” racial overtures of their party. But even they can’t swallow support of the type of folks who want to lynch you.
Funny haw facing “the real deal” has been such a clarifying moment.
Truth is, I hope the Chumph fires Sessions. Session is the most regressive, racist POS appointed since Raygun.With all that is going on with DOJ, Sessions spiteful record, and the investigation into Cumph Treason – it is going to be real hard for the Chumph to appoint another yes man.
As to the Chumph boast about being “More Presidential than anyone since Lincoln”…
Ferguson Police, the racist white-right, and Faux News used a video purporting Michel Brown pushing his way out of a store with a box of Cigarillos as proof he was a “black thug”.
Turns out that video was selectively edited to not show what was going on. First Mike Brown had been in the store 10 hours earlier and traded something for 2 boxes of Cigarillos… The second video, also edited didn’t show Brown exchanging something with two of the store clerks before taking the box of Cigarillos. Apparently the convenience store also was involved in the Marijuana trade, and at least the second video provides proof of the exchange of something, which the documentary filmmaker claims in Marijuana for the boxes. The second video shows the result of a drug exchange gone bad.
No culpability or participation was ever mentioned by the Police.
For some reason, CNN decided to bring on an ex NYC Police Officer, himself a convicted criminal and a favorite bigot on Faux News.
Don Lemon just threw Trump Negro off of CNN for lying about “fake news”. The subject was travel costs as related to the Chumph’s personal travel as “president”. Taxpayers are bearing unprecedented costs to protect his wife, living in New York, four children and their families, and the Chumph in the Whites Only House and the Mar-a-Motel-6 in Florida bursting the budget normally allocated for the protection of a real President and his family. Lemon’s parting words as he walked off set…”Don’t Come To This Network Again”
A CNN panel on Donald Trump’s meeting with comedian and television host Steve Harvey devolved into a shouting match after a panelist accused the president-elect of parading “mediocre Negroes” through his office.
Marc Lamont Hill, a CNN contributor and professor of African-American studies, wondered why Trump hadn’t invited any black policy makers or academics but instead had met with black celebrities and entertainers.
“To keep bringing comedians and actors and athletes to represent black interests is demeaning, it’s disrespectful and it’s condescending,” Hill said. “Bring some people up there with some expertise, Donald Trump. Don’t just bring up people to entertain.”
Bruce Levell, executive director of the National Diversity Coalition for Trump and former GOP chair for Georgia, sighed audibly and challenged Hill to explain what had transpired at the meeting between Harvey and the president-elect.
“I don’t see how anything I’ve said would prompt that question,” Hill said. “Unless Steve Harvey turned into a policy analyst in the behind-the-scenes meeting, it doesn’t matter whether I was there. My concern is the people he’s trumpeting up and putting in front of the cameras.”
Levell kept reminding Hill he hadn’t attended the Trump Tower meeting between the game show host and former reality TV star, and he claimed the transition team had been reaching out to a diverse coalition.
“It was a bunch of mediocre Negroes being dragged in front of TV as a photo op for Donald Trump’s exploitative campaign against black people,” Hill said. “And you are the prime example of that.”
Appearing on CNN, New York Times columnist Charles Blow took a Trump advocate to task for complaining the discussion about race in America is a media creation, before leaving no doubt about how he feels about the new President-elect.
After former Apprentice contestant, and current Trump sycophant, Andy Dean complained about Van Jones’ appearance Tuesday night talking about the Trump “whitelash” — with Dean calling Jones’ words “offensive’ — he claimed the race issue is a “media fascination.”
Blow set him straight.
“I don’t know what walk of life you have to be in to think that race is a media fascination,” Blow began as Dean tried to interrupt him. “I’m sorry. no I’m sorry. I happen to live in this skin, been doing it for 46 years and I’ll tell you something, this has nothing to do with media, my job, any of that. It has everything to do with the fact that I know my history, I know my family’s history and investigated that and have written a whole book about it. Everything about that history has everything to do with race. Every moment along the way when they worked really hard, and they were prevented from the transference of intergenerational wealth, and that had everything to do with race. Nothing with media, they didn’t even have TVs then.”
“So this concept that we are creating, or somehow living in a past, luxuriating in a race obsession that is great for us because we feel good about is the most insulting thing I could ever hear.”
When panelist Margaret Hoover changed the conversation to giving President-elect Trump the benefit of the doubt and encouraged everyone to be gracious towards him despite his hateful rhetoric and equally horrible behavior during the campaign, Blow drew a line in the sand.
“I don’t want the president to fail,” Blow made very clear. “I respect the presidency, but I do not respect this president.”
“I don’t respect this man about to be the president and don’t want that confused,” he repeated. “I don’t want America to fail but don’t try to force me to fall in line behind an unrepentant bigot — I won’t do that.”
Tuesday night, CNN host Don Lemon gave former Donald Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski a lesson in black history as well as some stern advice for his boss when it comes to speaking to black voters.
After panelist Peter Beinart ridiculed Lewandowski’s defense of Trump’s comment that black communities are “absolutely in the worst shape that they’ve ever, ever, ever been in before,” the Trump advocate said it was “a fact.”
Lemon shut him down, saying, “As a person of color who has lived the last fifty years in this country, things have never been better for African-Americans.”
Later, after Lewandowski attempted to deflect from Trump’s racism by saying he has African-Americans working for him, Lemon took the former campaign manager — along with his boss — to the woodshed.
“Then why doesn’t he ask those African-American friends why the words he uses are so insulting?” Lemon asked. “Because I’m sure they would tell him, if they were indeed his friends, if they were indeed employees who weren’t afraid of him and of losing their jobs. They would sit down and say, ‘listen Mr. Trump, what you’re saying is insulting, and I know you’re not talking to me, you’re talking at me. And I know that you’re not actually reaching out to me, you’re reaching out to make other people more comfortable with voting for you.’ That’s what I would say to him as someone who has given him a chance and has interviewed him more than eight or nine times.”
“And if he, as a candidate for president of the United States, doesn’t understand that, then he doesn’t want to represent all of the people in this country.”
On Monday night, columnist Charles Blow got heated when discussing Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump’s condescending outreach to black Americans.
“Donald Trump is a bigot,” Blow said to Trump’s National Diversity Coalition chairman Bruce Lavell during CNN Tonight with Don Lemon.
“Name one statement that you’ve heard Donald Trump say about African-Americans,” challenged Lavell.
“First of all, be quiet,” said Blow, “the way I was quiet when you were talking. That’s how this works. It’s a dialogue.”
“Name one,” pressed Lavell. “Name one.”
After a moment of cross-talking and host Don Lemon urging Lavell to hold his tongue, Blow said in exasperation, “Who is this person? And why is he on TV?”
“Here’s the deal,” he said. “Donald Trump is a bigot. There’s no other way to get around it.”
“Wow,” Lavell said.
“Anybody who accepts that,” he said, “supports it. Anybody who supports it is promoting it — and that makes you part of the bigotry itself. Now you have to decide whether or not you want to be part of the bigotry that is Donald Trump.”
He went on, “You have to decide whether you want to be part of the sexism and misogyny that is Donald Trump. You have to decide whether you want to be part of the bullying that would allow him to make fun of one of my disabled colleagues at theNew York Times. You have to decide that. There is no other space for you. There is no place for you to say, ‘I’m going to put that to the side because I believe in conservative principles.’”
“Your party has now decided that this is your person,” Blow said. “This con man is your front man. And you have to decide whether you’re going to follow that.”
Lavell said, “Well, Charles, I’m sorry that you can’t answer the question.”
“I don’t know you. And I don’t want to talk to you,” Blow responded. “And I don’t want to answer your questions.”
Lavell went on to accuse the Clinton campaign by way of Blow of distorting the public’s perception of Donald Trump.
“I’m not part of the Clinton campaign,” said Blow. “I’m a black man in America. And I know a bigot when I see a bigot. And you are supporting a bigot. And that makes you part of the bigotry that is Donald Trump.”
