How Trump’s Rhetoric Is ‘Normalizing Overt Expressions Of Racism’ | The Last Word | MSNBC 1


As Donald Trump trails in the polls, he has increased his use of racist rhetoric and fear in an attempt to boost support. Professor Jelani Cobb tells Lawrence O’Donnell it’s allowed some Trump supporters to publicly express racist views that before could only “be echoed among like-minded people,” something Sirius/XM’s Zerlina Maxwell says “has dangerous consequences.” Aired on 09/10/2020.

  1. HEY people, do NOT get comfortable!! Take a breather, stay rested, but STAY IN THE FIGHT!!
    Register early > Vote as soon as possible > Rally others > PASS IT ON…..
    🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸BIDEN / HARRIS 2020 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

  2. We will dump the dumpster 45 on nov 3

    Biden 46

  3. Yuuuuuge tremendous bigly fear and hate Mongering. Race baiting the likes of which have never been seen. Tangerine Twitler has set us back 100 years. MAGAtt.

  4. Trump and bigot are synonymous

    • There’s only one supreme being in that God, the clinical diagnosis for a bigot is delusions of grandeur.

    • @Dawn Anderson You are playing dumb. Leave your religious rhetoric at home or in the church. This is serious business, Sister. Get your head straight. The immature and childlike hide behind religion to excuse from acting like a grown up on deciding serious issues.

    • Identity politics is Nazi think.
      Democrats are supporting racial segregation, again.
      Stop racist Democrats.

      Mignon and moron are also synonymous.

    • @Greta Of The Corn and here I thought I was dainty darling and delicate. You really aren’t very discerning are you. And you aren’t familiar with french. You probably think I’m a steak and not the adjectives describing the steak. Not very well informed or traveled are you.

  5. You cannot get through to Trump’s base. They don’t wanna hear the truth, because they do not care about the truth.

  6. 15 to 20 times more deaths than Australia. That is if Australia had the same population as America, there would be about 10 000 dead, compared to America^s 200 000 dead. That’s the difference having a national plan headed up by a prime minister compared to no plan,no leadership by Trump.

  7. hatred is what golden boy has used his whole life… it was built into him from his father… 😐

    Why his cult loves him so much…. He gives them license to be their very worst selves.

      @Mango Mussolini Several democrats who have attended rallies disagree. You are being fed cherry-picked losers or “plants” who say what the media wants.

      @Average Josephine lol nope, I have degrees in political science and history. This is a cult of personality and it couldn’t be clearer.

      @Mango Mussolini OK, so what? People like his no-bu//sh/t in-you-face style. Like him or hate him, he’s changed DC politics by keeping his campaign promises.

      @Average Josephine straight brainwashed 💩

    • As does msnbc. msnbc gives liberal trolls license to accuse everybody around them of being russians, racists, nazis, bots, and trolls

  11. The problem isn’t with white folks
    It’s maga whytes, & they come in a variety of colors 👌🏾🤮🇺🇲💩

  12. The Biden/Harris camp has to full force media against Trump and crew. Facebook Twitter YouTube TikTak Radio Front page newspapers and all communities and churches of all religions. All hands on deck to stop this beast

  13. Hatred will be Trumps only memorial.

  14. To all the trump trolls posting in these comments sections – Question: How sad of a loser does one have to be to do that? What job did you pass-up? Adult diaper tester?

    • Please. Your cowardly hiding behind a Fake Page. Your intentions are not working to Divide, Agitate, Deflect and pass Misinformation. Fake Page Troll. 👆🏻⚠️

  15. I was never a racist until I attended a trump rally. I find out that is the end thing. You have to be 1 or they throw you out of the Republican Party

      @C.A.T. Hi I am a life long resident of Southern California. I took a drive today and saw Trump bumper stickers, Trucks with large American and Trump flags, A freeway overpass with Trump supporters all over it, A guy and girl walking down a road with American and Trump flags and I went to the post office yeasterday in my MAGA hat and got two love the hats and the day before a man gave me two copper Trump coins for free. No sign of Biden anywhere. Yes the air quality is bad where I live. I have air cleaners.
      Trump 20 20

    • @IWashMyOwnBrain Nice you’re having a good time and “have air-cleaners”. 19 people have died, entire suburbs and at least one whole town have burned, people are fleeing for their lives and, like here where I live, can barely breathe and have had their power shut off for days on end. But the important thing is that the cult of MAGA is happy. Ignorance is bliss, after all.

      @C.A.T. Have you learned your lessons yet or are you still a Liberal?

    • @Relax & Meditate The very first thing the fellow in your link does is equate some creep with “the BLM movement” without any evidence or corroboration… nice bit of red-meat for his right-wing followers, but not impressive to anyone with a functional neo-cortex. And what this story has to do with wildfires escapes me.

  17. Hitler’s blood runs deep in DJT.

  18. This division in races is the great america trump wants.

  19. THE REASON it’s been so easy, is because these people have always been this way, this president just gave them permission to be openly racist, and bigots. No more being politically correct, or respectful of others ethnicity! THEY went from zero to 60 overnight!
