Tim Scott is the only black Republican in the Senate, and it would be great if he was the first GOP leader to speak truth to power whenever Donald Trump makes a racist statement or fails to unequivocally condemn white supremacists.
For example, when Trump refused to condemn the white supremacist group, the Proud Boys, during the presidential debate, and instead instructed them to “stand back and stand by”, he should have immediate blasted Trump.
Instead, in the timid and subservient voice of a House Negro he said:
“I think he misspoke in response to Chris Wallace’s comment. He was asking Chris what he wanted to say. I think he misspoke. I think he should correct it. If he doesn’t correct it, I guess he didn’t misspeak.”
Scott is one of a handful of token blacks in Trump’s orbit, he is frequently called upon by his Master to stand by his side, with his grinning Uncle Tom grin, when the president is celebrating a legislative victory.
It’s clear that Trump didn’t misspeak, for years Trump has made racist remarks and has stubbornly refused to distance himself from racists.
“If he doesn’t correct it, I guess he didn’t misspeak.”
Allow me to translate Scott’s words, in effect he is saying, “if Trump doesn’t clarify his remark, I guess he is a racist. Oh well, it’s not my place as a House Negro to condemn my master.”
