If you were thinking that perhaps Donald Trump had turned the corner and would now act and speak more like a legitimate Presidential candidate, he quickly disabused us all of that notion during an appearance on Fox News Saturday evening.
The GOP nominee called into Jeanine Pirro’s show and doubled down on his comments earlier this week about African-Americans voting for him. Specifically, Trump told Pirro that blacks in the United States have “no health care, no education, no anything.” And then Trump added that the lives of American blacks are “a total catastrophe.”
Trump, who also said this week that he regrets things he’s said in the past that might have hurt or offended people, proved he was indeed only paying lip service to his fake apology, belching out this heaping helping of crap to Pirro:
“It’s just, like, a total catastrophe, the unemployment rates, everything is bad — no health care, no education, no anything, no anything. And poverty is unbelievable. Then, I said, ‘Hey, wait a minute, vote for me. What have you got to lose? You can’t do worse, you can’t do any worse than what these people have been doing and I will do better.’”
Make no mistake, Donald Trump doesn’t give a damn about blacks, Hispanics, or anyone else who is not part of his core constituency. He is merely reading from a script to make it appear that he’s tolerant of others and wants to help communities he has exploited and discriminated against his entire life. He is a bigot, a pathological liar, and a predatory businessman who would steal from his own mother for a profit.
What a relief it will be when the election is over and Trump has been sent packing. That day cannot get here soon enough.
