Donald Trump to black reporter: 'I Know You're A Big Obama Fan'
I know Birther Donald Trump has said he is friends with “the blacks,” but I find it hard to believe he has any left after the last two weeks of hyper non-subliminal racist bloviating.
This time, it’s a ridiculous exchange with Les Trent, a reporter for Inside Edition that’s supposed to be infrastructure investments. Trent’s black, so apparently his race makes it self-evident to Trump that he’s big on “the brother” in the White House no matter the topic at hand. Another entry for the ages, via Think Progress:
TRUMP:When was the last time – if you go to China, as an example – bridges being built, massive bridges. When is the last time we built a bridge in this country, other than a little toy.
LES TRENT: Isn’t that what President Obama tried to do with his stimulus package?
TRUMP: The President… Look I know you are a big Obama fan.The president doesn’t know what he’s doing.
LES TRENT: Why do you say that?
TRUMP: Because of your question. The President doesn’t know what he is doing.
Meanwhile, Trump got his knickers in a twist at being tagged with the label. Veteran journalist Bob Schieffer took off Trump’s color-aroused mask. The Donald took umbrage (TMZ):
Bob Schieffer delivered a scathing statement against Trump Wednesday night on the “CBS Evening News,” reacting to Trump’s insinuation that President Barack Obama may not have had the grades to get into Harvard.
Schieffer said, “That’s just code for saying he got into law school because he’s black. This is an ugly strain of racism that’s running through this whole thing.”
[Trump:] “That is a terrible statement for a newscaster to make. I am the last person that such a thing should be said about.”
Please keep it going, Donald. We need you in the 2012 Blend GOP Clown Car. Make it official ASAP.
