If it looks like a duck, swims like a duck, and quacks like a duck, then it probably is a duck.
In December 2015 Dr Harold Bornstein released a letter that spoke of Donald Trump’s heath in glowing terms:
“If elected, Mr. Trump, I can state unequivocally, will be the healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency.”
But if a septuagenarian has a double chin, a huge pot belly and a butt large enough to set up a table for two, he’s morbidly obese and in failing health.
Donald Trump says racist things, post racist tweets, enacts racist policies, excuses other people’s racism, surrounds himself with racists and he’s endorsed by racists. Trump is a racist. Period. End of story.
After Trump’s latest blatantly racist tweet in which he told American congresswomen of color to “go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came,” many publications and almost all Republican leaders struggled to find ways to avoid directly calling Trump’s statement racist.
Hello! Telling American-born female congresswomen of color to go home is the textbook definition of racism. It’s Racism 101! Throughout the decades Chinese, Irish, Italian, Hispanic and Muslim immigrants have been told to go home. The unspoken implication is that it doesn’t matter if people of color were born in the United States, America is only for white people and they should return to the homes of their immigrant parents or grandparents.
I have no problem calling a spade a spade and a racist a racist, but for those who can’t bring themselves to calling racist Donald Trump a racist, here’s a link to the Trump Racist Euphemism Generator: https://www.tdstrumpracistheadline.com/
