We all remember that moment last year, shortly after Donald Trump announced he would be running for the 2016 GOP nomination, when the Orange Menace stood up and called Mexican immigrants rapists, drug dealers, and murderers. Here’s a quick video recap:
On Thursday, Trump was a guest on the radio show of extreme right-wing host Michael Savage. Savage and Trump engaged in some mutual ego stroking of each other, and then Savage let loose with this:
“(Obama) has not only been flooding America with immigrants who cannot or will not work, he’s bringing in people who have brought back illnesses that were once basically eliminated in America.
“It’s a disaster to bring in diseased immigrants, don’t you agree?”
Trump’s reply to the question proved yet again that he is indeed the most divisive American political figure since George Wallace:
“Well that’s what’s happening, and people don’t like talking about it and certainly it’s not politically correct to talk about it and that’s why they don’t do it, because everything we do today has to do with political correctness. If something’s a little bit off, off just a little bit, they say, ‘Oh, please don’t mention that.’ Even my people tell me ‘don’t mention that’ and I decide to mention things anyway, even though I know it’s going to end up being a firestorm I mention them anyway. But there’s something that’s one of the other elements, and the people are pouring into this country and, in many cases they’re not well people, in many respects.”
Not well? Talk about the pot calling the kettle black! Here’s a man who shows many signs of being mentally ill, deranged, and downright off his rocker, yet he’s complaining about people he’s never even met so he can curry favor with the racists in this country who hate anyone the least bit different from them.
Here’s some advice for Donald Trump: If there’s so much disease floating around from people who have immigrated to the United States, instead of building a wall you should build a protective, disease-free bubble around yourself and never ever leave it. You’ll be safe and no one will miss you in the least.
