Trump: Racist? Pocahontas, 100 Days, Russia

Image result for trump racist picsWhen I hear people say Trump is not a racist, the words simply roll off like raindrops on a well-waxed automobile. Donald Trump is a racist of the worse sort. The elitist schmuck who spends his entire life maintaining a safe distance from most everyday Americans and he also maintains a safe distance from any person of color who was not, or is not, a knee-crawling and groveling money servant.

Trump's background regarding race is well documented. His settlement of a New York State housing discrimination lawsuit is enough evidence for most to accept Trump's racism. Out of court settlement is a validation of guilt the defendant doesn't want to run through the legal system. During my days in corporate human resources, we called it; "Go away money."

During the 2016 campaign revelation of comments regarding his failing casinos apparently included disparaging remarks of black accountant employees.
John O’Donnell, who was president of the Trump Plaza Hotel & Casino and later wrote a memoir about his experience, said Trump blamed financial difficulties partly on African American accountants. 
I’ve got black accountants at Trump Castle and at Trump Plaza — black guys counting my money!” O’Donnell’s book quoted Trump as saying. “I hate it. The only kind of people I want counting my money are short guys that wear yarmulkes every day. Those are the kind of people I want counting my money. Nobody else.  

Image result for trump racist picsTrump is no different than the hordes if white nationalists and neo-nazis who flocked to polling places last November to cast their "whites only vote." As is always the case. Trump's biases against non-inner circle blacks are accompanied by racism against Native Americans, and quite probably Asian people. During that 2016 campaign, Trump spoke with a great deal of insensitive and racism as he mocked the ancestry of Democrat Senator Elizabeth Warren.  

Wouldn't you know Trump paid scant, if any, attention to the uproar from previous characterizations of Warren via the native American slur or stereotype: "Pocahontas." How pathetic of a US President to us the word "Pocahontas" As a slur? Didn't Hillary Clinton once mention the word "deplorable?"

How about a comment from a true intellectual who happens to be a liberal? Racism and ignorance is a true sickness and everyone in the crowd who cheered with Trump's racial overtones at today's NRA gun fest are, in fact, deplorable(s).

MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell, The Last Word, again talks "Pocahontas. (must view). The real Pocahontas is a story for humankind and well beyond the decency of Trump deplorable.

Before we move to other slices of the pie.

Two members of alt-right accused of making white supremacist hand signs in White House after receiving press passes.

Two conservative journalists have sparked outcry on social media by making what some have interpreted as a white supremacist hand symbol at a recent visit to the White House.

Freelance journalist Mike Cernovich and Cassandra Fairbanks, a reporter for Russian news outlet Sputnik, posed for a picture behind the podium in the White House briefing room. In the photo, they are making a hand sign that can be used to signify “white power.”

“Just two people doing a white power hand gesture in the White House,” Fusion senior reporter Emma Roller tweeted, alongside a screenshot of the picture.

Every single one of the first 100 days: A real mess.
Wouldn't it be nice to get along with Russia?

Now we know Clinton knew of Putin hacking into RNC systems.
