Shithead

(By American Zen’s Mike Flannigan, on loan from Ari)
“Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?” - "President" Donald Trump, January 11, 2018
This man has to go. Now. And people are getting kind of fed up waiting on Robert Mueller and his glacially slow investigation and Republicans pretending as if the 25th Amendment doesn't exist. Because I think we can all stop shaking our heads and denying that Donald Trump is a racist. If Charlottesville and Trump giving cover to his white supremacist supporters didn't prove that in spades, then there's no denying it now.
     Slate knows it. CNN's Anderson Cooper knows it. His former ambassador to Panama knows it. There's no more plausible deniability and the last refuge Trump's racist voters, supporters and sympathizers have left is acknowledging he is a racist but "one who tells it like it is." After all, if Haiti and other countries with black people aren't shitholes, then why did they come here, in the first place?
     Well, one answer is that they came to America looking for a better life through better opportunities for their families before Donald John Trump made our nation the laughingstock of the planet, before he and his Republican and corporate enablers turned it into the First World's Premiere shithole. And. lest there be any inexplicable lingering doubt that Donald John Trump is a racist cut from the same rotten piece of whole cloth as his running buddy David Duke, Trump punctuated his despicable remark by asking why Norway can't send more of their people over.
     Well, why would they? They live in a far better, more progressive country than ours. Someone should tell Trump he can stop buttering up the Norwegians- They already bought the F-52's. And someone should also remind him not all Norwegians are like Quisling. Typically, Trump denied having said these things despite there being Republican and Democratic lawmakers in the Oval Office when he said it, as well as the press.
     And, as always, his timing couldn't have been worse except if he'd waited a day and made the remarks about Haiti and certain African nations today: Today is the eighth anniversary of the horrendous earthquake that devastated Haiti that killed anywhere from 100,000 to 316,000 people and displaced one and a half million.
     If the community of nations was an actual family, Haiti would be the youngest in a family of scores that always gets the hand-me-downs, beatings and derision from bloated, pampered, racist white fucks such as Donald Trump and Rush Limbaugh. Through seemingly unending political corruption and repressive regimes, American corruption that only begins with the Clintons and the Red Cross, and then natural disasters such as earthquakes and floods. Haiti, the world's first black republic, has never gotten a fair shake and that trend promises to continue for the foreseeable future.

He's Not Racist. He Only Plays One on TV
Donald Trump has always been racist and you have his father Fred to thank for that. During Trump's Quixotic campaign, we'd heard the disgusting tale of Fred and Donald Trump being sued in the early 70's for racial discrimination in their rental practices. HUD, now headed up an anti public housing fanatic named Ben Carson, sued the Trumps. It was the Donald's inglorious introduction to nationwide fame (or infamy) and then as now, Trump denied any wrongdoing, saying the government's allegations were "absolutely ridiculous."
     Since then, Trump has not been shy about showing off his racist opinions in interviews over the decades, including saying that blacks were "inherently lazy" when his Atlantic City casino went belly up. And, of course, he pricked up a lot of dog ears when, during his campaign announcement, used his coarse dog whistle to call for a wall to keep out Mexicans because they're "rapists and criminals."
     Since then, he hasn't been shy about making his racist views known even though he's now under a bigger, more powerful microscope than NBC or the Miss Universe Pageant ever presented. Despite knowing that a rash tweet or an injudicious thought could result in a stock market crash or create an international incident (like, say, nuclear war with North Korea that could easily pull in China and its considerable might), Trump blithely barrels across the world calling nations with black populations "shitholes" and then following up by wondering why we can't have more white, respectable Nordic types.
     Then there was Trump's lackadasical response to the hurricane that submerged Port Arthur and Houston, a city with 36% Hispanics and his execrable response to the subsequent hurricane that struck our territory Puerto Rico and left much of it, to this day, without power. Trump's remedy? Throw paper towels at them then laugh as they catch them.
     No President of the United States can pretend to unify the nation and respect the countless cultures that make up our national fabric while being so derogatory to those who aren't sufficiently white enough to pass his baleful muster. And Trump's remarks about Haiti and African nations shocked even the GOP lawmakers who were there during that impromptu meeting to talk about DACA and Jeff Flake's compromise bill.
     Besides, as the old adage says, those who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones, especially if they have unparalleled views  of shitholes like Trump Park, Mar-a-Lago and Trump's Marina Hotel Casino in Atlantic City
     Now, those are shitholes.

Truth is, he's no more racist than any other Repub POTUS, he's just considerably more careless about it- as he is with everything else. These guys honestly think not using the N-word in public makes them officially... Not racist!

And with Trump's complete lack of a filter, you KNOW the N word will come out sooner or later, if it hasn't already.

If it wasn't for Mueller, doing so would guarantee him a second term.
