Make America Throw Up …Again

The Chumph – like most bigots, doesn’t quite “get it” as far as the black community in America. A case in point was his speech about the “inner-city”, Sanford, Florida…Where Trayvon Martin was murdered.

Looks like some college kids in the background waving Trump signs for money.

 

Trump Warns of Inner City ‘Hell’ for Blacks Where Trayvon Martin Was Shot

As Donald Trump campaigned in central Florida today, he made his usual appeal to African-Americans, painting a grim and partially inaccurate portrait of black communities.

“African-Americans are living in hell in the inner cities,” he said. “They are living — they are living in hell. You walk to the store for a loaf of bread you get shot.”

But his comment today struck a particularly tone-deaf chord. Trump was in Sanford, Fla., where teenager Trayvon Martin had been killed four years earlier by a neighborhood watchman while walking home after getting a pack of Skittles.

Trump has garnered criticism for how he’s reached out to African-Americans, with whom his support remains low according to all major polls. He often makes his appeals in front of almost all-white crowds, harping on conditions in inner cities, neglecting to appeal to other African-Americans who don’t live in inner cities.

Across the country, the data show that more African-Americans live in suburbs than anywhere else.

During the second presidential debate, James Carter, a black man asked Trump if he believed he could be a devoted president to all the people in the United States.

Trump responded: “I will be a president for all of our people. And I’ll be a president that will turn our inner cities around.”

Some have bristled at the imagery Trump has used to appeal to African-Americans, saying it is only representative of a slice of the African-American community and disregards the wealth, education, and status that Black Americans have achieved.

Census data from 2015 show that 52.9 percent of African-Americans 25 or older have a college degree of some sort. And a report from Pew in December showed that, compared with other racial or ethnic groups, African-American adults saw the largest improvement in income status from 1971 to 2015 and were the only racial or ethnic group that saw a decline in the percentage of low-income earners.

Obama to the Chumph…”Quit Whining!”

Take your whuppin’ like a man, Trump!

The woman is going to whup your racist ass from sea to shining sea.

Even worse, Obama delivered his butt kicking in front of Italian PM Matteo Renzi, who also had some choice words for the Chumph

President Obama To Donald Trump: ‘Stop Whining’

President Obama had some harsh words for Donald Trump’s charges that the presidential election is going to be rigged — “Stop whining.”

With the GOP nominee trailing Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton in the polls, Trump has turned to claiming that if he loses, the election is rigged. Both Democrats and Republicans have called such rhetoric very dangerous, and election law experts, including Ohio State University’s Edward Foley on Tuesday’s Morning Edition, have said such a scenario is “extraordinarily unlikely.”

In a Tuesday afternoon Rose Garden press conference with Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi, President Obama served up some of his harshest criticism yet of Trump’s baseless claims. He said such talk threatens to undermine American democracy at its very core, especially the peaceful transfer of power.

“I have never seen in my lifetime, or in modern political history, any presidential candidate trying to discredit the elections and the elections process before votes have even taken place,” the president said. “It’s unprecedented. It happens to be based on no facts.”

And Obama pointed out that many battleground states, such as Florida, are run by a Republican governor and his Republican appointees who are backing Trump.

“The notion that somehow if Mr. Trump loses Florida it’s because of ‘those people’ that you have to watch out for,” referring to language many have interpreted as directed toward minority voters, “is both irresponsible, and by the way, doesn’t really show the kind of leadership and toughness that you’d want out of a president.”

And, the president argued, it shows such a person who cries foul isn’t ready for the challenges of the Oval Office.

“You start whining before the game’s even over, if whenever things are going badly for you and you lose you start blaming somebody else, then you don’t have what it takes to be in this job,” he said.

Obama Unleashes on the Chumph

Damn, Prez…Tell us how you really feel!

Bout 26 minutes in is where he unloads.

Obama unleashes blistering attack on Trump

The president casts the GOP nominee as a hypocrite and a phony and urges America to vote.

 

President Barack Obama ripped Donald Trump here Friday as a man who’s embraced an attack on the “global elite” only after failing to be accepted as a member of the global elite himself, attacking the Republican nominee for running an anti-American campaign with paper-thin support that’s all about InfoWars.com conspiracy theories.

Rallying a skeptical crowd for Hillary Clinton at a small airport, Obama framed the 2016 election as a choice about democracy and moral values that goes way beyond politics — about the country coming together to reject a dangerous, self-centered cynic without “the basic honesty that a president needs” and the party that propelled that man to be its nominee.

Issues like global warming and immigration reform are important, Obama said, but this race is more about America standing up for itself and Americans standing up for the people who’ve come before them.

“Donald Trump’s closing argument is: What do you have to lose?” Obama said. “The answer is everything.”

Warning that Trump is trying to poison the entire system and nation in a ploy to dispirit the country and depress turnout, Obama urged the people here and everyone else to fight back with their votes. “Don’t fall for it,” he said.

Obama cast Trump as a false prophet, lying about who he is and what he believes. Thursday, at his own campaign events in Ohio, Trump said he was taking on the global elites. That’s absurd, Obama responded.

“This is a guy who spent all his time trying to convince everyone he was a global elite. … All he had time for is celebrities. And now suddenly he’s acting like a populist,” Obama said. “Come on, man.”

Nor is Trump the tough guy he purports to be, the president insisted, taking aim at Trump teasing the idea of the election being rigged against him, as he’s done every time his polls have dipped since the summer.

“He seems to be in the middle of the game making excuses all the time for why he might be losing,” Obama said, eagerly goading Trump. “It’s always interesting to me to see people who talk tough but don’t act tough. Because if you’re tough, you don’t make excuses.”

That’s in contrast to Clinton, whom Obama repeatedly praised for being “in the arena” and fighting for voters, waging a campaign, talking about ideas. He spoke directly to people who say they care about civil rights, inequality, Bernie Sanders’ agenda, and even values like civility, courtesy, honesty and kindness; the only way to sincerely act on those beliefs, Obama said, is to vote for Clinton.

All that Trump’s left with, the president said Friday, returning to an argument he started sounding out Thursday in Columbus, are the rabid conspiracy nuts and the Republicans who’ve aided and abetted them over the past eight years : “Donald Trump didn’t build all this crazy conspiracy stuff. Some Republicans who knew better stood by silently.”

What Trump’s left with are those people, and the kind of people who’ve taken up the InfoWars.com conspiracy site’s offer to pay people for crashing Clinton campaign events if they get on camera screaming that “Bill Clinton is a rapist.”

Obama went right at a heckler who’d made his way into the center of the crowd to hold up a piece of paper with a mock-up of the famous 2008 Shepard Fairey “Hope” poster, done instead with Bill Clinton’s face and the word “rape.”

Obama used to flare with annoyance when hecklers would interrupt him, but he’s started rolling with them more often. Friday morning, Obama turned the heckler into a prop, representing a perfect symbol of the flimsy campaign Trump is running.

“If you’re confident about the other guy, just go to his rallies,” Obama said. “You don’t have to spend time over here. Go knock on doors for your guy.”

He smiled as the security worked its way through the crowd to get to the man.

“Unless you’re getting paid to be here,” he said. “Everybody’s gotta make a living.”

He looked out at the crowd.

“Come on everybody,” he said, “let’s do our little chant: Hillary, Hillary, Hillary!”

And the crowd responded, chanting along with him.

Trump wants to be a tyrant, Obama said, but he won’t let the human rights violations that he’s fought against in other countries as president take root at home.

“Around the world, we talk to other countries, we say no, in a democracy, you can’t just threaten to jail your opponents. There are things called due process,” Obama said. “You can’t just jail or ban reporters you don’t like, because there’s this thing called the First Amendment.”

As for Trump’s telegraphing that he might not concede if Clinton wins, Obama said that represents an anti-American cult of personality: “If you lose, then you say congratulations, but then you move on, because our country, system of government is bigger than any single individual.”

A Tale of Two Detroits – Trumps Speech at a Black Church

First – in fairness Trump’s speech at a black church in Detroit. Kudos to the Church Members for giving a warm, respectful black American welcome.

“As his remarks ended, church leaders then placed a Jewish prayer shawl upon Trump’s shoulders,” the Detroit Free Press reports.

And BTW – there was a Taco Truck parked outside the Church…

Doing a Box Office business.

The Chumph on Crack – “I’ll Win 95% of the black vote”

The Chumph believes his first term will be so great, 95% of black folks will vote for him for a second term.

Pretty good turnaround, considering by current polling 99% of black folks intend to vote against him ever being President in the first place.

Of course he made this pitch to black folks twice in the last two days in towns where the population is 95%, and 98% white respectively.

Donald Trump’s Pitch To Black Voters: ‘What The Hell Do You Have To Lose?’

GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump pitched his candidacy to black voters Friday, suggesting they vote for him in November because they are desperate enough to do so.

The reality TV star, who claimed in 2011 he has “a great relationship with the blacks,” has polled miserably among black voters. He sought to remedy that at a rally in Dimondale, Michigan, saying he wants the vote of “every African-American citizen in this country who wants a better future.”

“Look how much African-American communities are suffering under Democratic control. To those I say the following: What do you have to lose by trying something new, like Trump?” he said. “You’re living in poverty. Your schools are no good. You have no jobs. Fifty-eight percent of your youth is unemployed. What the hell do you have to lose?”

He continued, “I will produce for the African-Americans. And the Democrats will not produce. All they’ve done is taken advantage of your vote. If you keep voting for the same people, you will keep getting exactly the same result.”

Trump made similar remarks during a speech in Charlotte on Thursday.

Trump’s claims, like comments he’s made about other racial groups, are broad and hardly representative of every black American. His claim about black youth unemployment is also misleading.

And according to a Pew Research Center survey conducted this month, black voters are actually more likely to be optimistic about the future than white or Hispanic voters. The poll also found that 51 percent of African-Americans think life has gotten better over the last 50 years, versus 33 percent of white voters and 40 percent of Hispanic voters.

Trump also claimed Friday that he’d have the support of 95 percent of black Americans by the end of his first term ― a statistic that appears highly unlikely, given that Trump is currently polling around 1 percent with black voters nationally.

The candidate’s past attempts at appealing to black voters have not gone over so well: In a widely-mocked moment in June, he singled out a black supporter at a rally and asked the crowd to “look at my African-American over here.”
