Boston Globe Columnist: Attacks On BLM Show ‘Racism Is Trump’s Comfort Food’ | The Last Word | MSNBC 1

 

Boston Globe columnist Renée Graham tells Ali Velshi Donald Trump’s recent attacks on Black Lives Matter protesters are a move of desperation because “he has nothing else to hang this campaign on.” Yamiche Alcindor, White House correspondent for PBS NewsHour, adds Donald Trump’s return to racist attacks may indicate he “is starting to acknowledge that he might lose” in November. Aired on 8/5/2020.

    Lol
    Comfort food! With a cold glass of Covfefe and Bleach.

  2. Remember ‘alternative facts’ from Kellyanne Con-woman?

  3. Lest we forget the Ad’s that Trump took out regarding the Central Park Five. I don’t think his racism is even newsworthy. It just is, like green grass is.

  4. Daily Reminder: Trump called Covid-19 a Democrat hoax that will magically disappear.

  5. I find it odd that the national hero of white supremacists is so embarrassed by his own skin color that he hides it under a coating of fake tan and cheeto-dust bronzer. 🤔😅😂🤣

    • @Forrest Trump what truth? What has he said that’s actual racism? He’d be tried in court for hate speech if he had. So your belief isn’t exactly truth. You demean the word and de power it. Well done

      @Ginger Nightmare that’s good but I prefer to call it Marmalade Mussolini.

      That is So Sweet! MMmmmm.. voluez vous cocher avec moi! OOOoooo.. lala ❤

      People in Europe, where I live. Got mad at me for being American over Michael Jackson. less than a decade ago.. Michael is black and hates himself. Because of the racism. I am dribbling as much as Trump. too tired to tinkle.

  6. Trump’s Comfort Food, white bread, mayonnaise and baloney.

    • @Biden 2020 I have seen him eat fried chicken many times, I don’t know how he’s still living after eating so much high cholesterol food

    • @Joe Simoneau you must be smoking some good weed, dude.

      BLM is a Marxist organization bent on destroying this country. MSNBC is enabling them as evidenced by the resignation of one of their prominent producers. Everything you are watching on this channel is a lie. @t. @t

      No.. the mayo is French. too revolutionary for Trump. Ketchup! We spit it out in Europe.

      I was a fried Spam baby. 🌱

  7. And this is news? People are just now finding out that Trump is a racist?

    • Minnie Minosa | August 6, 2020 at 2:01 AM | Reply

      @omi god but you still can’t name one Trump policy specifically designed to hurt black American citizens can you ?

    • @Minnie Minosa The point is that Trump is a pig. I don’t want a pig President. You can lick his rear and all you want – just do it out of my sight, ok?

    • Minnie Minosa | August 6, 2020 at 2:21 AM | Reply

      @Ambria Ashley who are these mysterious black people in Brooklyn that wanted to rent a apartment in Trump’s all white Brooklyn neighborhood in the 1970s ? Seems like BS to me

    • Mike Russell | August 7, 2020 at 9:31 PM | Reply

      @Minnie Minosa The Policy of “School choice ” to help desegregate schools, ending low income housing in suburbs telling the white folks it’ll “help keep the blacks out”, and an administration wide anti Arab stance. I got more, you want to keep going little cultist?

    • Minnie Minosa | August 8, 2020 at 1:06 AM | Reply

      @Mike Russell you better come up with some real policies instead of the BS. You wrote , I never heard Trump say ” I will keep the blacks out ” because he didn’t say any such thing and school choice doesn’t hurt anyone , choice is a very good word one of my favorites .
      Anti Arab policy , how does that hurt black American citizens ? Is that all you got ? Very weak

  8. Trump* is desperate and throwing red meat to his base. They eat it up. He* is still going to lose re-election.

  9. but there is a hill he’s willing to die on I hope its nearby

  10. Lies and hate is all Trump has to offer. Good riddance in November.

    • @timothy mitchell like I said he might not be a good person but the things he has done as president are exactly what we needed. As far as Russian collusion you know that’s not true, it was a Democratic scandal that involved Obama Clinton and the FBI. Hence why he wasn’t impeached, and why hearings are being held today about operation hurricane.

    • timothy mitchell | August 7, 2020 at 2:24 PM | Reply

      @Main He stood on the stage at the convention and said “Russia if your listening….” That night Hilary’s e-mails were dumped.He was never going to be impeached because it takes 2/3 of Senate to do so. You have really low standards for what you’ll accept in a president for what in return? Your sad!

    • @timothy mitchell operation hurricane let’s get to the real bottom. Hilary acid washed and smashed her electronics with hammers. Republicans didn’t dump anything, she was hiding Intel similar to water gate. And it was called operation hurricane, involving then president Obama the FBI and candidate Clinton.

    • @timothy mitchell I love bananas, but Trump like black people.

      @Ben Eckard you make no sense.

    Vote. Vote. Vote in November. American needs to get rid of the worst potus it’s ever had

    i think trump is one of those extremely rare individuals who has absolutely NO redeeming qualities. ZERO

      Kinda like the whole democratic party

    • spit on Bunker boy | August 6, 2020 at 7:26 AM | Reply

      that is not true he pays hookers

    • How? That’s abit silly. He created more jobs than Obama? Obama said he didn’t have a magic wand when asked to create a million then trump creates 5 million. Better the devil you know than a senile old man

    • You’re correct, and his supporters run a close second.

  13. and he’s been gorging on way too much of that comfort food. i mean…look at the man. he’s lucky racism doesn’t have calories or he’d be long dead

  14. What’s worse, t-rump doling out racially charged rhetoric, or the people who follow him largely because of that racially charged rhetoric?

      It’s mob (riot) mentality…Trump says something stupid…his followers go out and do it…like drinking Lysol…the idiots did that…cause he said so !!! Stupid people !!!

    He’s talking about BLM, in a negative, hateful way. But he wants Kayne West to run for president to get votes, he thinks. Not a good carnation. Do he know Kayne is black?
