If you thought Donald Trump’s big mouth would eventually lead to his downfall as he runs for the 2016 GOP Presidential nomination, it now appears that his supporters may be the ones that sink his political ship.
A perfect example of this was on display earlier today via CNN, where Trump cheerleader Terra Compton Grant declared that Trump’s plan to deport some 20 million immigrants would provide millions of more jobs for white folks “and some of the blacks.”
Did she really say that? Oh yes, and we even have it preserved for posterity via videotape.
Grant said she loves Trump’s newly-minted plan to deport millions and build a giant wall on U.S.-Mexico border which he insists he will make the Mexican government pay for:
“We’ve got to get a border, we’ve got to get a wall. We have a lot of illegal immigrants that come into this country, they work illegally, they make American money, and then they send it back to Mexico to support their family. So, that money is going back to Mexico. So, the money is there to make that happen.”
Grant also noted that Trump’s heart and mind are “in the right place.”
Which means that we have Breaking News: Donald Trump actually has a heart! Or so Ms. Grant maintains. Personally, I’m not convinced.
While she was passing out kisses to Trump on CNN, Grant added:
“I really do, I love the plan. I love the idea that, hey, let’s get some of these illegal immigrants out of the country, let’s get them out of here so maybe more whites who have not been able to acquire jobs, maybe they can get into jobs [and] some of the blacks.”
Notice she said “some of the blacks.” Which jobs did you have in mind for African-Americans, Ms. Grant, all of whom are just as much citizens of this country as you are? Will you let them have the jobs where they have to stand in the hot sun all day and pick produce? Or will they be relegated to cleaning your house and maintaining your lawn?
The people who support Donald Trump are, if Terra Compton Grant is any guide, just as bigoted and narrow-minded as he is. No wonder they love him with so much fervor.
