Aides Reveal Trump's Anti-Semitic Remarks

 In today's Washington Post, senior aides to bigot and career criminal Donald "Very Fine People" Trump have said he's made bigoted comments about Jews, in addition to blacks and Hispanics, in private conversations. Not surprising to learn that, but interesting that it's coming from "current and former U.S. officials":

"In unguarded moments with senior aides, President Trump has maintained that Black Americans have mainly themselves to blame in their struggle for equality, hindered more by lack of initiative than societal impediments, according to current and former U.S. officials.

After phone calls with Jewish lawmakers, Trump has muttered that Jews 'are only in it for themselves' and 'stick together' in an ethnic allegiance that exceeds other loyalties, officials said.

Trump’s private musings about Hispanics match the vitriol he has displayed in public, and his antipathy to Africa is so ingrained that when first lady Melania Trump planned a 2018 trip to that continent he railed that he 'could never understand why she would want to go there.'” (our emphasis)

There is no bottom to the bigotry and depravity of the monster currently defiling the Oval Office.

We keep repeating how awful Trump is, how he denigrates our military, our elderly citizens, and people of color. We have direct quotes, videos and copies of his words. Any other politician might be doomed by this proof of a lack of humanity or a soul.

Here's the thing: we've known it for four years or longer. We know it and Trump knows it. The problem is, nobody could or would do anything to stop him. His fans, his followers, his cult LIKE IT when he spews garbage because they're garbage people. How do you convince them otherwise? They like his racist, covid-denying, misogynist presidency.

So fuck 'em. (sorry). We have no options other than a massive vote for Biden. And vote in person if you can, or vote carefully and mindfully by mail-in ballot, and do it as soon as it's legal.

We are up against the wall, folks.

donnah - His cult is impervious to anything negative about their Dear Leader. He's conditioned them to reject what they see, hear, and learn, and only accept the "truth" from him. They're lost, as far as preserving our democratic republic is concerned. The disgraceful thing is they know him, too, and are just fine with that.
